    Thanks guys! I worked on some fuel tanks last night.

    Managed to get the chassis painted and weathered. The engine is now in its final resting place. I just mocked the cab up to make sure everything clears. I had to move the hood hinges a little, but it should all fit. It sure is tight though!

    Cool, I can't wait to see it. I used the kit frame, but I shortened it and removed the kit suspension mounts.

    Finished up the grille and added a little weathering to the hood.

    Good eye. They had the lower door handles (paddle style) with diamond plate battery box covers and unpainted fuel tanks.

    Got a little more paint on the cab today. Needs some touching up, but all in all it should work.

    Quick little mock-up. Finished up the cab and sleeper.

    I have scratchbuilt a few trailers:
     

     

     

     

     
    I buy most of my styrene online. It helps to have a bunch of different shapes and sizes of styrene round stock, round stock, and angle. Since I do so much scratchbuilding I keep most sizes of the common shapes on hand. Then I just buy some .040, .060", and .080" thick sheets for larger components.

    Some plastruct diamond plate was used to scratch-build a battery box. I used pieces of a paperclip for the small handles on the cover.

    Gorgeous! What did you use to make the grille screen?
