    Thank you guys
    For some reason I thought it was a good idea to build the sat dish now  , so here is something close the DirecTV Slimline Mobile dish that is used, not finished yet.

    Nothing wrong with buying a Kia branded car.
    Kia has been ranked the number 1 for new model reliability for 2016 , and it looks like for 2017 via JD Power,  so that says something I suppose.

    It does not have 100% full engine, but its so close that you will never know once its finished, unless you are going to display the engine next to the car.

    Not easy to photograph this thing , but it kind of looks like a trailer now, still a lot of work left, I need to fill in the seams next,  had to make some changes, and removed the I-Beams from the front axle forward, previous trailers , the way I mounted the sides had the bottom of the sides more below the frame/floor piece, I pretty much kept the bottom of the sides level on this one, so with the I-Beams, they got in the way of the some things, but I will still use for the axles and help in mounting them.
    Evergreen strips #109, .010x.250 was used on the sides where the sides are attached to the frame.



    And what I did to help get that curved shape on top of the gen compartment, sized up the PDF and printed it out and used that as template to cut the plastic, I wish I would of that of that before the first too attempts
    Look at the storage compartments between the spread axles.

    New needle set,  .35,  wore the set that came with it, but since I bought mine direct from Japan, it came with the Japan standard .3 needle set, and had a very hard time finding replacement parts for the .3 needle set,s had to do the ,35 needle set, but thanks to Tower Hobbies, I save $10 on my order, so that's a plus.

    Laser printed and ALPS are two types that I really try and avoid if I can ,  nothing wrong persay , just not as crisp, and depending on the printer and what paper they use, it makes a world of difference, plus they are just a pain to apply.  And then you throw in the a colored body, and now you have to worry about some bleed thru, unless you double up, which is great if you dont mind buying two dekal sheets.
    So I am kind if with you, I would rather have my options limited and use silk printed.
     
    ( Off topic side random note,  I am having dilemma  right now, I trying to chose between ordering some ALPS printed or silk from cartograf decals.)
