  1. That looks so good! I cannot wait to see it finished!
  2. You should be! It looks incredible!
  3. This build is amazing. Thanks for posting the pic of the stencil for the tire lettering. I am going to have to track one of those down.
  4. Nice work on this project! I'm gonna be watching!
  5. I'm so glad you shared these with us. I swore off firetrucks for a while but this really makes me want to build or finish another one! You build some great models Charlie!
  6. This is looking fantastic! One question, how did you do the lettering on the tires? All the tire decals I see have perfect edges. Yours look way more realistic.
  7. Nice build! Looks much better with the lowered nose.
  8. WOW!! Really nice build you have going here. Those massive tires look fantastic! Really looking forward to more.
  9. That really is a beautiful build. I love the color combo.
  10. I'm sorry it's so long between updates. I've got a lot done on this one. The interior is finished. Here's a shot of it before I mounted the cab for good. Cab is mounted for good and I was able to add hinges to the doors. Engine detailing is done and I hinged the hood as well. I also got the windshield installed. While I was at it I added a spotlight to the "A" pillar. The lens for the spotlight has been added. It fell out and I didn't notice until I took the pics. I'm in the home stretch with this. It should be finished soon. Thanks for looking
  11. Firs, I want to thank everyone on the positive comments on my project. This is one of the most difficult builds I've ever attempted. Here's my latest update: I was able to get started on the interior. Those seats look way to clean. Guess I'll have to dirty them up. i figured out the spare tire mount. Simple seatbelt buckle from MCG. Cab is painted and the boom is installed. Cab is just mocked up as I have quite a bit more to do before I can mount it for good. Thanks for checking it out!
  12. Oh yeah, like I said before, Love those tires. The overall look of the truck is fantastic.
  13. I really like the museum Idea. This is what I love about truck building. You can be so creative!
  14. Nice work so far! I too am glad to know about the front axle as one of these is on my "to do" list.
  15. Nice job!! I don't think I could have done those stripes.
  16. This is awesome. I've never seen one of these trucks before. Looking forward to more.
  17. I really love the look of this truck. I agree with the others that the color really makes it stand out. I've always wondered how the logging trucks haul their trailers seeing your build finally answered that question for me! Looking forward to seeing more.
  18. I've been moving along on this project but forgot to update it here. Sorry about that! Here's where my monster wrecker stands as of today. I did some additional detailing on the engine then made it look well used. Every pic I've seen of one of these has the paint peeling off the air cleaner. I tried to replicate that look. Here's the boom arm detailed. I've got a few more details to add before I can call this part of the truck done. Here's a front view. I'm trying not to go overboard with the weathering. And here's a preview of the livery it will carry. This will match my Lonestar wrecker. This truck has been one of the most challenging builds I have ever done. Between the resin base kit and all the mods it has really tried my patience but I think it will pay off. Thanks for looking!
  19. This is looking great! Those tires make a huge difference. Nice work!
