    Managed to do a little more weathering and made some spare tire carriers.

    I made some good progress this morning. I built the landing gear and fuel tank, then I weathered the box. I still need to weather the landing gear and fuel tank, plus make spare tire carriers, add marker lights, and plumb the brakes.

    Thanks! I made the battery box and the air cleaner this morning.

    Made a bit of progress on this. The sides are almost done, started working on some detail on the front tonight.

    Thanks guys! Last night I was playing with some photo editing to try to make it seem more vintage.

     Thanks guys!

     For the fans I used 3D printed pieces that I started making a few months ago. I haven't had time to add them to my website yet, but I do have some in stock.
     
    I haven't been able to get a good picture of them because my camera stinks, but here is one that a customer sent me.

    Thanks guys! Just a few more details to go and this one will be finished. I need to add license plates and turn signals still.

    Got the cab complete and mounted. This is definitely the home stretch now! Now I just have to finish up a whole bunch of small details.

    Finally finished up the intake and exhaust plumbing and got the bumper painted and installed.

    I whipped this up this weekend. I have never put a model together this quickly before. I'm pretty happy with how it came out. If there is enough interest, I may consider offering this as a full kit in the future.

    Thanks! For the sides I used corrugated styrene sheet for the ribbed area, and styrene sheet for the rails on top and bottom. I glued 2 ribs on the bottom rail and have started adding some rivets from Archer. For the front I used sheet styrene and some 3/4" acrylic tubing to make the rounded corners. I still have to add the ribs to the front of the trailer, as well as rivet detail.
