thank you, not too bad for a rattle can :)  I am finding I really like the lacquer rattle cans, especially the metal flake colors. I hope it shines even more after some hand glaze.

 

was out of town for work last night, and just got home, so no work tonight on it, but I think tomorrow night will be another sanding session.......

oh so is there a way to fix the front end and do you think I can fit a RoG k100 cab on the w900 frame or do I have to use an AMT k123 frame



Gw trucks makes a correct front end kit and the cab mounts too. I started one of these kits year ago. Ended up boxing it up and it is waiting for me to finish it.

thanks guys, that sleeper was a royal pain.

 

Dennis, it's testors lacquer clear, at work now, i'll post the product number later on, it's ultra gloss or something to that effect. i really like it, you can load it on and it doesn't seem to run/sag or pool up, or maybe i am just getting really lucky :D

Not only is the paint spectacular I like the fact that "rivets died" in this episode. Rivets are so overrated anyhow. ;)

Bill that chassis looks great !  Is that flocking I see going on in the cab floor ?

 

May I  offer a suggestion ? Relocate your shifters towards the driver seat.  None of the Brownie's I ever drove or worked on was like this. The shifters are normally in alignment with the transmission in a regular cab. I would keep the location of the shifter on the left side of passenger seat and put the other to the right of the driver seat.  I dont know why AMT has them there.

ya, first instinct was 'that ain't right', but then the thought of them never being seen again once installed in the cab prohibited the movement of them, lol.

 

and yes, that was an attempt at flocking using something that isn't flock. it worked ok, but i have ordered some flock :)
