I don’t think there are a lot of people interested in monster trucks on this forum but I will share this one anyway  ;) 
Personally I’m a big fan of these mighty machines and that’s why I build this one and added some details.

 

The box is from Lindberg and based on the Rammunition truck, I don’t think the scale is exactly what it should be (too big) but still lot of fun to build.

 

Added custom details:

Drilled the distributor and added sparkplug wires

Custom made fuel rails with injectors and lines on the blower

Resin hose joints on  the front and rear axles and added hydraulic lines for power steering

Resin hose joints to the hydraulic pomp on the blower with all the lines  to the axles

Hydraulic lines from the driver stick and steering pump

Breather hoses from the valve covers.

Resin hose joints with fuel lines from the tank to the engine and gauges

Photo etched 6 point seatbelt

Stockcar fuel inlet on the tank and BMF belts.

A few extra decals on the chassis and interior

 

Paint used:

Vallejo Air for about everything

Tamiya red for the rims (Brush)

Zero 2K clear for body

You really did a nice job on this monster truck.  Your model is great marketing for the MFR.  After seeing this I bet there will be a few sold! ;)

Great detail. What diameter of wire are you using for the hydraulics hoses?

Thanks Kevin, I tried different types of cables and small hoses but the thing that worked the best for me was 0.8mm shrink tube. 

I could have this easy and kind of cheap (1 dollar, 1 meter) and its exactly the color that I wanted to have, other thing I liked about this is the text on the hoses. Its difficult to see on the pictures but its there, just a tiny detail like on real hydraulic hoses.

 

I put the blank metal wire (see pic below) that I used for the injector lines in the shrink tube and shrunk it down for 0.3mm with a lighter and took the wire out.

Very impressive work Arno, The chassis work is amazing, I have 2 of the AMT kits, old school chassis, but looking at these Lindberg kits, i better purchase a couple of the more updated versions!

Thanks Ray, these models are very nice too build. The shape and quality is great, much better than the Amt kits. But i must say I build the Amt Turtle that was also fun!
