I've been working on the LoneStar for a month now I ordered a flame template from lazy modeler I used Tayma dark blue for the base and yellow flames with MOPAR b5 blue as the fade in color. This is my first attempt to,paint flames. I still need some more polishing before clear coating. I've also picked up super singles for the rear. Here are some progress pictures so far. Your comments are welcome.

Thanks for the comments my job has just sent me out of town on business for the next 2 weeks so I will not have any progress until I get beck. I have the Revell Beall chrome tank trailer that I'm going with and have a set of super singles to match the LoneStar for it.

Ben. When they say you only have 1try to place the template it's very true. I ended up having to get a second set. The sides were tricky with the uneven surface by the doors.

Thanks Dan for the links, I don't see a lot of trucks running super singles around here. I do like the look. What's your thoughts, do these look convincing? When a truck is set up to run super singles on the drive axles does it run a float tire on the front? Did you modify the kit wheels or use some aftermarket wheel? I see that the vender offers a aggressive pattern and a highway pattern for the super single. Would a highway pattern be used on the trailer? Thanks for your time.

Vince I'm seeing more rigs going to the super singles around the Houston area as far as going with the road tire I like the look of the aggressive tire the road tire looks like it may have a gap in the center. The rims from both the LoneStar and the
Bealll fit in the super singles perfect you just delete the in side rings.
