I just have to say this is one of the wildest, best thought out builds I have seen on here in years, I love it...I have seen the bus you have been emulating and I have to say you have done a better job than the 1:1 bus, this thing is totally cool.
This thing is totally over the top and totally insane love it and my favorite build on the board. I do have a suggestion thou on the fuel, not sure how long real water will last for the gas. I build a lot of low-riders and like to add aquariums to them like they used to have back in the 70's and 80's. I found a resin at hobby lobby , its a two part that you mix together.
these are the most recent that I built, the top one for my Egyptian raider build, and the bottom one for the Aztec warrior build. It last forever once it sets up in about 8-10 hours. You can tint the resin as you are mixing it with a clear like tamiya clear yellow to get the fuel color. Just an idea.
Joe, it may be too much detail. I did start this one back in 2013, and became such a huge project that I got totally burnt. I do want to get it finished so I am pushing my self to getting it done, with just the truck and the tomb trailer. I want to finish the 1932 car as well but will see how that goes when I get closer to completion.
