Gator - thanks for stopping in Another small update but a huge obstacle out of the way - Exhaust piping. That has to be my most unfavorite part about building truck models. Perhaps if I would just build one out of the box. It does not look like much but I can assure you there are over a dozen segments that make up this piece of piping.
I dont like mixers , perhaps because they were always on the job sites I worked making a big mess. But that is a superb and very real looking model you have ! I cant believe your going to give it away , but very impressed with the courtesy to the company .
Be sure to label them as "What Not to Do" Thanks Brian and Mark Jeff is there any other engine out there other then Detroits ? I made up a bumper for this truck, kind of a mix of two prototypes thrown into one
Your right, I have never heard of this truck before nor can I pronounce what model it is. But I sure appreciate fine modeling skills no matter what the subject is. Besides it is a Truck , what is there not to like !
page two already so here is the latest progress. I modified the Astro tanks by making new endcaps out of styrene and removed the center support strap. The battery box is out of the spare parts box - not sure what truck it is from.
Hey I remember those old Krako Breakos and those fuzzbusters that were half the size of a shoebox. Shag carpet I try not to remember... Making forward progress but slowly. I am not even going to tell you how much time I have spent getting the cab mounted and lined up. I have it in the ballpark and currently modifying the Astro round fuel tanks.
