still have a lot of work to do . all the large pins sticking out will be gone after painting. i'll need to dis-assemble everything to really get good coverage and work in different color. white and alcad 2.stay tuned, took some more reference photos today at the shop so there may be more changes yet to come..thanks for the positive feed back......john

The model certainly is an impressive build so far, the hood stretch is convincing enough to be a factory option, flawless paint & stripes.  

 

Why not use ally tube for the hydraulic rams?  it will polish out much better & you wont have to be concerned with paint thickness build up & loss of tolerance.  Just curious why you limit yourself to only using styrene for scratch building when there are better material alternatives.

very nice job, shame about the original sleeper, it looked really smart, some great features on this, especially love the candy purple and white on the cab and hood, the s.p legs look great, will watch this develop

I added 1/2 inch to the hood. didn't want to get to carried away, if you can believe that after the lonestar build. and it never dawned on me about using alum. tubeing on the cylinders. I thought of the build up of paint and the tolerences and figured I would cross that bridge when I got to it. as far as using other materials? well I have been just winging this whole project. if it looked good and fit ,I just ran with it. and last but not least. give FOUNDATIONSEDGE a huge welcome. found him floating around another fourm an boys let me tell you, he's got talent. hope to see some of his work in this neck of the woods.........thanks john

Very impressive build so far!  I like it.  Thats a good idea to use aluminium tube for the cylinders.  I may try that myself sometime.
