The box behind the batteries is a wet tank for hydraulic fluid. The pump is actually just on the other side of the frame rail driven by a PTO.

Nice!  It needs to be weathered a bit and taken outside and photographed in a realistic setting.

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.


Wow! I was just about to ask this question because I got so excited when I saw the turbo and exhaust parts! Good thing I took a deep breath and read through first! :) I am building a 4300 as we speak as my first build and this is serving as basically a walk through! Looks great man!

It looks fantastic!

 

If it was mine, though, I'd add some sort of company name and graphics (logo, phone #, etc.) on the doors.

I have three built up 4300's in the stash that are due for rebuilding. I've started two and you've given me some ideas... I think this beast is the most heavy-duty 4300 I've seen.

On a scale note, I mix 1/24 and 1/25 parts all the time with no issues. The Italeri floats look fine to me, as well. Tires come in all sizes... sometimes you just have to go big. ;^)

Thanks for all the compliments!! Harry i will be adding logos. I need to do the tag along trailer with a John Deere 310 combo on it still. The dump box will also have a load of gravel in it and i will weather all three together. Just havent started the other parts yet. Thats why the lift axle is in the down position in preparation for the rest of the build.

Just need a puddle of oil and hydraulic fluid underneath and a bag of potato chips on the cab floor.  Incredible job!

 

You guys blow me away on  interiors.....and just when I thought I was getting decent...you raise the bar again! 

 

Keep it up!

Great weathering and detail work, that dash is sick. If my memory serves me my friends dad had a truck almost identical to this riguyt down to the paint, brings back childhood memories.
