    Chris, might also try "Young" we had several in the two departments I was with. Most were Ford "C" cabs with a canopy added for the jump seats (transverse).
    One was a straight "C" with a 55' tele-sqirt ladder. The sqirt was about as stock a cab as you could get, automatic transmission and only two seats up front. Looking back (80's) we had a rule, if there were only 3 guys, either 2 guys had to ride the back step (driver alone in the cab) OR, the third guy would have to ride up front (sitting on the doghouse...all in the interest of safety....ah, simpler times

    Dark tinted (limo tint) windows can make the illusion of a window without having to worry about being actually transparent.
  5. Brinx added a post in a topic What AMT Ertl big rig parts would you like to see reissued as parts packs?   

    I would think any of the vocational bodies from the kits would be successful as stand-alone kits.

    Looks really good JT...(as always), love the orange! great looking rig all around.

    Black oil paint from a tube can give a pretty realistic appearance as well.

    Another is a bit of (automotive) oil and some fine dirt, mix together like a paste and dab it on the fifth.

    If it helps,

    I will try to hide seams and such with paint schemes and accent stripes. I the case of the Freightliner, I did that on the sides and hid the roof seam with a drag foiler (oooh, that might be a GMC term...lol).

    Mike, A good alternative is picking up a Revell snap Pete or KW (1/25) at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. They are really nice detail for a snap kit (the cab and sleeper are molded as one piece), the price with a 40% off coupon is around $15.

    I do like your paint work and color combo...looks pretty good.

    Welcome to the Interstate (or logging road as the case may be)
