Hi guys.... Let me introduce me some photos of my newest project - KW W900 Aerodyne Snap Tite.

Chassis will be extended for 2cm. The reason is that I decide to make a version with 4 fuel tanks. It will be in matt blue so as fuel tanks.

The body will be in white combinated with modeltruckin decals (thanx to Jerry). I´ll use also awesome PE parts from CTM for KW W900.

Ready is wiring and some plumbing. 

I also decide to make a new wheels "snowman" in cooperation with some older Italeri part, like rims and middles.This conversion were necessary because there are used Italeri 1:24 tires. Now are wheels more deeper, before it was very "fleet".

To be continued...Paul.

I like the way you modified the back wheels with the Italeri wheel half, they look even better than original Italeri wheels! Good idea!

You've taken an intermediate skill level model and added an expert touch.....I don't think I've ever seen anyone take this model to this level.....Excellent work, so far, and I'm sure I'm not alone in saying, "MORE, MORE, MORE".....

Yep, it's lookin' really good! I like your detailing and weathering. your Italeri tire conversion is making this look so much better than the kit's tires, it's a natural change and the tires are the right inner diameter to do it.

What I'd like to know is, did you actually add another Italeri rim half to the inner part of the rear wheels also or just on the outer side?

Robert, yes. If I can remember I used over there three parts from italeri. So it is - rim (italeri)-snap out.rim-middle (italeri)-snap inner rim-italeri rim. Center from italeri you must little grind.
Front are also Snap out-italeri middle-snap in. This centre makes on front wheels I can say "rim" where the tire is good locked...

Pavel,

You are doing incredible job on this snap kit. It looks very nice and more expensive than it is. I think I might steal some ideas from you when I build mine. I will be watching the progress closely.

Greetings to Slovakia

Thanks for the information Pavel! Like Jarda said, your mods make your model look way more expensive than it really is. Can't wait to see how it's going to end up!

I really like those fuel tanks.  Can you provide some details on how you created them?

Thanx boys... So Jesse how on fuel tanks. The first step is make the body of fuel tank - make a barrel from kit. Than I use a speed glue (here we call it split second glue)as a filler. this glue is better than filler because after time don´t falling down... Let it dry and grind till insensibility :). Than you can use colour or alclad chrome... After colouring I make a stripes. The first I make stripes from binding black tape (for electrician), width is about 4mm and lenght does matter how big is diameter of fuel tank. this binding tape is sticky but it is necessary to use this speed cement (loctite or so..) on the ends of this tape (between tape and fuel tank I mean. Than I prepared chrome stripes. It is made from a can (red bull, coke or bier...) iuse inner side. You can grind it and polish with micro mesh 3200-12000 till the highest polish. Then I cut (with scissors) a stripes which are only 3 - 3,5 mm widht  - narrower than binding tape. Grind the borders (sand paper 400-800). Than I pinning I can say by something round (I use scalpel hilt). It takes round form. than again glue it on the black tape. The conectors for vents are made from round prifiles and ring wires...

The new wheels and tires make it look right. The truck looks chunkier and more work ready than the kit's original parts. I like the fuel tanks too. Very nice weathering as well! Keep on going!
