Looking good. What, or how are you going to make the compartment doors work?

That is a good question, I am going to use plastic rod and shape sort of in a z shape, then use just a little bit bigger round stock that is drilled out, and fit the ends into them, I will take some pics when I get to that point

This build did not die, got set back with having to paint and repaint the cab four times,  so let me catch up with what I have done, which is not really , I also had to get a replacement part for the cab.

Working on the rear part of the trailer and the rear doors for the lower level, I need to re cut the doors, they will be movable and will side in behind the panel you see on each side

And some work done on the upper level
IMG_1294_zpsd8337cc8.jpg
and some mock ups with the truck

I didnt have to repaint the hood this last time, so I got the headlights and grill installed

and the cab

And the chrome vinyl I order came today, this is for the trailer , thats 24 inch's long, I paid $7 total with shipping, its 3mils thick, so not good from trim, but perfect for what I need, like flat objects , or simple curves,  its has a adhesive backing just like BMF

 

I am using this for the front of the trailer/generator compartment, and the rear door area

Getting closer to having the ProStar finished, well enough to make it in time for the BO that I am taking part in

That Prostar looks great....Very nicely done.....I can't wait to get started on my own.....Just looking at the instruction sheet, right now, and I can already tell you that I know I'm gonna like this one....And I also know that I'm gonna have to stretch that frame a little, too....Anything in particular I need to watch out for, though???
