Italeri floats up front. Italeri standard tires on the back and amt/ertl tires on resin two holes for the lift axle.

.I think that you wouldn't of put dea tires 1/24 you break the look of your model.Your truck is not heavy duty to have the tires larger than 1100 x 22 wide. 1/24 Tires can be utiluse to make of big heavy duty has the 1/25 scale

Alain, there are plenty of trucks here in florida running front floats similar to what i am depicting here. However , I am not a truck expert and simply made use of what i had on hand that fit the wheels i wanted to use. Heres a pic of aother transtarwoth floats up front that i think look even bigger than what im showing. . Thanks for all the compliments!

Tom, thats an easy one! The exhaust manifold are painted with a two part system called sophisticated finishes antiquing solutions. Its available at Michaels cradft stores. The first part is a iron colored paint that has real iron dust in it. The second part is a chemical solution you brush on in multiple coats that rusts the paint. I follow that with a black wash and a silver drybrush to hit the highlights.

Very nice build. The truck looks good with the dump body and lift axle. The engine looks great and I don´t mind the floats at all. What is that box behind the batteries? A hydraulic pump?
