    Off to a nice start. I've been wanting that kit myself.

    I accidently got tape on part of it. Haven't been able to source another. Rather bummed out about it too...

    Freightliner FLD 120
    Gonna call this one a wrap minus the CB antenna (I'll put those on before the show). Gotta say it was a fun build. A number of inaccuracies, but heck it's plastic and it came out looking decent. The decals came from a club member in Germany, the driver figure from Fujimi. The rest were plastic and resin bits I had in parts boxes.

    For gluing in the glass on my car or truck builds I use clear E6000 or Shoo-goo. I put a tooth pick in the tube and put on small dabs, smear them flat just a touch and install the windows. I use light duty masking tape to hold the glass in if needed. If any oozes through the seams when pressure is applied I let it set up (50 to 60% dry) then come back with a sharp x-acto and gently cut through it and pull it away with tweazers.

    Thanks. I love old iron myself. If I could restore a truck it would be an old COE for sure.

    Thank you. I used to drive until recently. Took a job in the office to be with the kids.

    @Bigtruck, 
    I spent a few weeks painting it. I waited days between coats and colors sons not to have adhesive from the tape mar the finish. I wish it were perfect....I forgot to fade the bunk doors before doing the fade. :-( and the paint mask left a horrible adhesive residue. (Really pi $$ed me off!) I've talked to other builders who have used the same mask. Some with great results and others with the problems I had.
    I took one shot next the ruled line on my build mat to show how long the truck is. The air and 7 way line came from one of the members here who makes them.

    Stretched Lone Star
    Finished this a month or so back and forgot to post pics of it until yesterday when doing pics with my other trucks. I stretched the frame about 5+ scale feet, can't remember the exact math. The base is Model Master Diamond Dust topped with Modelaster Pure Gold followed by Alclad Candy Blue for the fenders and flames. Over the Pure Gold I sprayed 5 coats Alclad Candy Purple and got a nice burgandy/brandywine color. The frame is Metalic Blue from Model Master. 
    The figure is from a discontinued line call Locsters Riders, mostly used for my low rider builds. I lit the sleeper with 3 leds and made the bunk doors functional so I could a 9v battery underneath.

    Fantastic looking car hauler. Love it. The color choice is great, as are the cars being hauled :-)

    In another thread I mentioned weekend projects I do with my boys. Below are some builds I worked on with them. The Kenworth W900 and K123 are box stock quick builds that they were hands on with. The Lone Star and FLD (almost complete) are projects they were  around for, but mostly watched while working on their stuff.
