I just hooked the tanker up to see how it looked at this point in the build and took the pictures to post. I'm not sure if I'm going to leave it plane or find a logo to put on it. I'm going to add some fenders on the front of the trailer and I'm checking on how the side marker lights are wired I've seen some where the wires are attached on the side of the tank. The piping on the underside is light blue on the trailer legs the kit has them chrome but I'm not sure how real that is I'm thinking of making them light blue to. Again thanks for your comments and suggestions.

Dan,

Awesome work on both the Lonestar cab and Beall tanker!  I have two of the Beall trailers, but have been hesitant to build them.  Mine will be converted to fire service water tankers, and the chrome piping on the passenger side will be removed, as well as the addition of several compartments along the body.  Any feedback you can share on the tanker build?  Look forward to following your progress on this build!

 

 

David

Dave thanks for the comment as far as the build it's a good kit. The parts fit up good my only issue has been keeping my finger prints off all the chrome.

Just about done need to add some more decals and clean up the finger prints on the chrome. I've added wire for the side lights and the red and white safety tape. Finial pictures should be up on Monday.
