    Help with Payhauler 350
    Hey guys, haven't been here for ages, but thought it the logical place for some advise.

    I am starting in on the AMT/Ertl International Payhauler 350 for an upcoming Con this spring. I like the standard Cat yellow but might try doing the lime green.
    It looks like the complete truck is painted one color, with a few items picked out in black, steel etc., for plumbing and hydraulic cylinders and stuff.

    I was hoping someone had a source for close up shots for doing some detail work...? I plan on having working head/tail lights, illuminated dash, and if the servo boards work, I'd like to try and have the dump bucket raise and lower...! Pretty ambitious I know, but I am going for the kill shot in the competition againts all those boring German Panzers that show up year after year... ;-)

    I have found some decent pics using 'images' search on bing, but I was hoping one of you great truck chaps might have something better...?

    Also, has anyone ever built this kit and could offer up some hints/tips on the build itself...?

    I know I'm askin a lot, but after working on aircraft for so many years, this is a whole new ballgame...!!!

    Any help GREATLY appreciated,

    Regards, Unclepine

    New guy needs a little help...!
    G'Day mates, just signed up on the last weekend, and was hoping to see if the trucking community might help me out. I picked up the AMT International Payhauler 350 as a change of pace from my usual Warbirds and GP Bikes...WHOA is this thing BIG...!!!!

    I was wonderin if anyone knew of some sites/photos/info, etc, that would help me to detail/weather this behmoth, as it is surprisingly well detailed and a perfect candidate for some "dirt 'n muck" here and there...!!

    Any help MUCH appreciated..

    Cheers, Unc
