  1. Yeah, those images are definitely going to be helpful. I think I can get some old Leach dimensioned drawings, so that will also be really helpful.
  2. Right now I'm leaning towards red with a black interior, simple but still sharp looking.
  3. Thanks Jeff. I am too. I definitely will. Definitely can be, I have a couple ideas on where to find some.
  4. Hey all, picked this up today. Really excited to get this one done, although considering its only my second model car, we'll see how it turns out. Anyway, going to be building this one box-stock. I'm sure it will be a fun project. Got the engine built up tonight, hopefully can get some blue paint on it soon.
  5. Looks great! The red looks super nice. Can't wait to see this one progress.
  6. Thanks Dan. Not quite sure, probably scale drawings (I'll make them if I have to) and styrene, brass. We'll see when the time comes.
  7. Looks amazing! Agree with Jeff, the multi-color scheme really adds to it.
  8. Great build! Will be really cool to see this one come along.
  9. Great progress so far! Looking forward to seeing this come along.
  10. Thanks all. Just got out of quarantine, so hoping to get paint on the engine later this week, that's the last major component to be painted. Meanwhile, I got the cab parts on, interior together and painted and couldn't resist taking some mockup photos. It's starting to come together. Interior is a pretty plain black and tan, highlighted the dash a bit. Not my best work but will be hardly visible when it is complete.
  11. Thanks everyone! Vincent, I am going to scratch build the body. I always loved the look of the Leach pack masters, and they are relatively simple bodies. We'll see how it goes. Couple long days of building (having to quarantine helps) got some paint sprayed on the frame and cab. Will look pretty good with some light weathering. Will get paint for the engine and transmission once I am able to get out and about again.
  12. Good day of work today, engine assembled and the frame is mostly together. In the picture the rear cab mount is in the wrong spot, caught that, it is fixed now.
  13. For this years BRBO I am going to take the AMT Autocar dump truck kit and build a Leach 2-R Packmaster refuse body to go with it. Hopefully I can get this done by the end of the year. This is my first attempt at scratchbuilding, and I've only built a few big rig kits before this, so my expectations aren't super high. I'm excited to get working on this!
