I wonder how it would go With the firewall.

Ben

 

That's a good question. I'll have to test fit it and report what I find afterwards. Might be interesting...

Engine looks great...

 

Thanks Carl! I hope I can get it to look at least close to the ISX... No plans for entering a contest, but it's a personal build.

Thanks everyone. The temp outside is a bit cold to paint, so the truck cab won't get painted today. I did get the panel line filled in and ready though, so I'm happy about that.

 

I found out why the wheelbase looks so messed up J.T. It seems that Moebius modeled this kit from the redesigned 2013 ProStar. I'm building a copy of the truck I drove, which is a 2012 ProStar... There is a vent between the hood, and the doors that make the cab 3 to 4 scale inches longer, and pushes the cab back as well. it looks as the the sleeper is longer too, but I don't have the measurements to compare.

 

I was wondering, how much difference is there between the maxxforce and a Cummins? The truck I drove had a Cummins. Can I just paint it red and get away with it, or do I need to do a complete overhaul of the engine?

big difference between the max -force and cummins engines, not sure you can create the cummins from the max force

I just painted it red with some black accents. Just need it to look like a Cummins...

Got the engine assembled and painted red. It's not perfect, but it does have some semblance of a Cummins ISX. I'm happy with the way it turned out...

Looks nice.  It's "Cummins-ish" enough.

Thank you much J.T. I only thought of it because the truck I drove had a Cummins in it. I would mix up the names for this engine, but either way I did it sounded X-rated... :blink: :lol:

Kind of at a stand still temporarily... I bought some enamel black paint, but it's not wanting to cooperate. I sprayed a body with some primer and let it dry, then added the black... 6 weeks ago, and it still isn't dry! I need to go and get some duplicolor black  laquer, then start the the frame. The nearest place is 40 miles away... :(

cool, can't wait to see some updated pic's. I too have since started building one of these kits, so far I am loving it for fit/finish, a far cry from the old amt kits, lol.
