    Well I just started getting the front and rear bumpers ready for dry fitting. Then I noticed that the bumpers don't have any over riders on them like the 1/1. So that's just one more thing that I will have to scratch build

    Hi Simon Welcome your not to far from me . Im in Lincolnshire

    Thanks Dan
     I was under the 1/1 this morning on my back  Just checking some colours shocks will be white as there adjustable. The K member is satin black under the dirt and grime, chassis rails are body colour the axel and drive shaft will be satin black also. I did notice that I will have to change the front breaks for disks. Fuel tank is aluminium and I will have to weather the front half of the exhaust pipes as the rear half is brand new . I was very surprized that that the kit is quite accurate to the 1/1 underneath . So it should be fairly strait forward to put in the break and fuel lines.
    I have just about got all the bodywork done and should be able to get it primed tonight flatted tomorrow and with a bit of luck get some colour on as well . I have also drilled for plug wires on the engine. I just have to paint the distributer grey to match the 1/1 .
     Comments welcome

    Love the paint . I would use BMF and not bother using the supplied kit foil as it does not conform to the body shape very well . Keep at it your doing great

    I met ( Ice road Rick) at a truck show a few years ago, unfortunately I found him to be very arrogant  The next year though I met Lisa and she was a very nice person who loves trucks and trucking. Your rig looks great and captures the look perfectly . Nice work

    Thank you Bill that is very helpful . I think that I will have to dig through the parts box to get a bench seat that I can try to match the pattern some what. At least I have good reference
    I have just ordered a flat hood from Time Machine Resins . I have to get under the 1/1 to get pics of where all the break lines and fuel lines go . So I will be getting the car up on a lift at the local garage this week all being well
