I have a few scratch building projects myself in mind but the lack of a budget and supplies,skill keeps me from doing much...it is awesome work Joe.

today I started on the roof mounted search lights, basically all scratch . im using .040, .060 styrene and clear .010 styrene , the light bucket is from the rear bumper of a king hauler . the driver will be able to rotate the search light from the inside. I will add lights later

I didn't read through this whole thread, so maybe this was already answered...
