    Really top-notch work.  Absolutely fantastic.

    Yup, that's impressive!
  3. Jim B added a post in a topic White Freightliner   

    Very well done!

    Interesting. 
    Now, I know nothing about old White trucks; but I would have thought that the L700 chassis would have been too "light" for a White 3000, and that the Ford C900 chassis would be more appropriate.  This seems to work, though.

    Nice progress.  Is that the Dodge L700 chassis?

    Looks like something from Captain Nemo's submarine Nautilus.

    Looking nice!

    Interesting.  I'm not sure a police car would have one of those, though; but I could be wrong.  It's been know to (frequently) happen.

    The artwork looks a lot like the artwork I used to see in Dungeons & Dragons.

    So I managed to get some work done on the Sioux in the last few days between work & the rain.  The cockpit is just about done:

    And here's a shot of the WIP instrument panel.  Does anyone know what that ring is supposed to be?  Is it a gun sight?

    And an overall WIP shot.  The engine & cockpit are not permanently mounted yet.  They're just "posed" for the photo.
     
    More to come!  Soon, I hope.

    Thanks for all of the ideas, guys.  I appreciate it.
    And, yes, I am missing the CP100 sirens for the roof.  Not exactly sure how I'm going to make those either.  I have a 1/32 Revell Mack CF600.  Maybe there is something in there I can use.

    Thanks for the input, guys.
    Maybe they're attached to the left side of the car to make it look "balanced"?

    Curb Feelers
    I want to add curb feelers to my 1949 Mercury Club Coupe similar to this:

    But I'm not exactly sure how to go about it.  I'm guessing that actual curb feelers are between 10" & 12" long.  It looks like they just clamp to the frame.  Does anyone have any ideas on how to make the curb feelers for Sheriff?  Got to keep the white walls clean, ya know.

    Nicely done.  I like your loading dock photo booth, too.
