    Was never satisfied with the way the hood fits the body, mines still half built. You seem to have pretty much solved the problem. Looking good so far.

    Thanks for the info re narrowing the wrecker body. The more I look at it the more I like it, everything has been expertly done, especially the detailing and weathering

    How much did you have to narrow the body, any photo's or tips on how you did it?

    "WOW" that is really nice, looks exactly right. Auslowe Model Truck Accessories now does a resin visor for this cab.

    Great work, absolutely amazing.

    Following is how I use Alclad. First apply the gloss black, Alclad have there own gloss black ALC 304 but any enamel gloss black will do the trick, must be an enamel type paint, lacquers just don't work.

    After the black has dried I then airbrush on their Alclad Clear Base ALC 303, it's a gloss clear designed to be applied after the gloss black has dried. This really leaves a very high gloss surface for the Alclad chrome, I then just mist the chrome on at around 15 psi on a 45 deg angle.

    Alclad also have a clear that's designed to be a sealer coat over Alclad chrome. It's called Alclad Aqua Gloss ALC 600 this has a milky color in the bottle.This is designed to be applied after the chrome has dried, and makes it easier to handle without fear of the chrome finish being damaged..

    Excellent job, are they the kit tire decals?

    Known as a "Bull Bars" in Australia, Not as common as they use too be unless you're running in the out back. Now can get the same protection with a reenforced bumper bar . The one in the photo is a total "Overkill" looks kinda' dumb to me !!!!

    Can anybody tell me what the long thin tank on the chassis in front of the fuel tank is for?

    You've done an excellent build with this one, I'm just about to start this kit. Also interested in knowing whats involved in lowering the suspension, any tips would be of help

    Looking absolutely fantastic so far, you may have to adjust the ride height, some of these Revell Ferraris; are inclined to sit a bit too heigh on the suspension, other than that they are great kits.

    Check out Titchy Train Group, HO scale, NWB & riverts, they come in plastic,from memory 20 to a card. I think I got the .030 size, I just sent him a sample [KW sleeper door] and asked him matct and send.
    As well as riverts there's bolts,washers, hex head bolts etc. gave me excellent service, to Australia.

    You mention that you're going to need a ton of them, good luck drilling all the holes in a straight line to fit the riverts into
