thanks for all the info guys. while I mull over if I am going to box stock it, or change the items mentioned, I started on the body. got the main cab painted and have the hood in what's going to be the secondary color. still need to mask the hood and paint the main color on it. have part of the sleeper together, gonna need a lot of body work on it as the seems are terrible. here's where I am at with it,

I like that red. What color is that? The hood is silver? Hard to tell on my phone. Very nicely done.

Very nice with the orange hood & white fenders.  Now that I'm on my computer I can see that it's definitely orange.

Do any of the t600 kits come with a filler panel for the back of the cab to make a day cab

thanks guys :). the sleeper is taking a lot of body work, trying to get all the seams to disappear, and I hate actual body work :unsure:  it's looking ok though, hope to have some new pic's up this afternoon.

ya, holy cow this sleeper is gonna be the death of me :unsure:   My goal is to have no seams visible on the 5 parts that make up the sleeper, I am sick of sanding/priming/sanding/putty/sand/prime/sand/sand/sand/sand........did I mention sanding??? :blink:

 

to make matters worse, the tanker I am building to go along with this needs major putty work on the bottom to make it smooth/seamless, I must have lost my mind on this one, lol.

 

how anyone could be a body man for a living is beyond me, lol,

 

 

in all seriousness though, I am making progress. have one side of the sleeper just about smoothed out, frame is almost ready for paint and the motor is 1/2 together. should have some shameless 'look at me' pic's by the end of the weekend :)

Dude, I feel your pain! I'm currently working on an old Airfix 1/144 Lockheed L1011, and for the past few weeks it seems like it's been putty, sand, prime, repeat. I'm a little sick of sanding dust, if you know what I mean.

Hey Tom, I hear those sleepers turn out pretty well with just a touch of sanding here and there ! ;)

Jim is right. This has to be the worst part of model building. If this is any consolation, just look at the awesome paint job on the cab and hood that will be applied to this troubling sleeper. :rolleyes:

The short answer for that is no.
