Thanks everyone, it was generally a fun build.

 

THe 'cage' or stoneguard as we know them is exactly that, an effort to prevent stone chips being thrown up by passing vehicles and such and hitting the screen.

 

The pinstriping was applied using KFS/Auslowe striping sets, which come in individual pieces - putting the corners on first and carefully measuring the gaps between for the straight parts - it took days to do the striping on this truck!

 

Cheers

No problem jacobus, just trying to help.

 

Another tip - You may notice I have assembled the steering tie-rod to the front of the axle, depending on what engine you use it may foul on the oil sump, If you intend to display with the cab tilted, no engine parts can sit more than 20mm above the top chassis rail before hitting on the cab floor.

Hi jacobus,

this is a great transkit, I have built and finished one, and started a second.... It looks to me you have made a mistake in the positioning of the front axle. With the FLD chassis, remove the 'blue' extensions and measure 36mm from front of chassis to the centre of the steer axle, (or 40mm with the supplied bumper mounts installed).
