Thank you Carl, Jeff & Tom

I did find out too late that AMT positioned the tractor and maxi brake knobs wrong.

Oh well noted for the next build ! :lol:

Funny you should mention that Sean! the Road Boss has no provisions for brake knobs,i am fashioning some from square stock (tractor) hex stock (trailer) and round,as I believe a truck of it's vintage would also be equipped with a tractor protection brake. As all have mentioned,very nice work on your dash! I am experimenting with some woodgraining techiques for some future projects,just lack the time to spend any serious time at my bench!......................Mark

After all that time you havent missed a beat. Thats coming out to be a good looking Pete. I didnt mean that to rhyme. I knew it was going to look good from the detail of the tires when you first started on it.

Thanks Terry :)

Beings this is my first Pete I have ever built , my instruction sheet is nothing but notes on what Not to do and how to do my next one.

I painted the fuel tanks with Alclad, BMF for the straps and cap, stripped the chrome steps :rolleyes:  and painted them body color.

Getting down to the last of the parts.

Sean,

 

Truck is coming along real nice.  Good looking truck, I like the color too.  Are you going to put the stripe on it like your reference pic?  Looks fine without it as well.  Question: did you make the front axle turn?

 

Jeff

Jeff - yes the front wheels are poseable.

Thank you everyone who followed the progress of this truck.

I finished it up as much as I was going to do as it will be packed away for a move to Montana in July.

Fine looking Pete! Sean,what did you do to the tires to "dull them down"? I was thinking of running a Scotchbrite pad over the next set I do,so they're not so shiny.................................Mark
