    I have an extremely easy and simple technic I use after sanding the tread. It involves putting the tires in a container full of sand with just a touch on talcum powder to help adhesion. The best part is, is that the sand also gets down in the tread and gives the whole thing a used look.

    Dave, I do believe you are right. Judging by the length, (unless it was lengthened by whoever added the ramp deck) it was a ladder truck.

    My Chevy Brush Truck
    Everything in the bed with exception of the hose reel (AMT ALF kit) and the seat (parts box) is scratchbuilt. The bezels for the gauges are cut off pieces of a spent .22 caliber rifle shell. The traffic caone is the cap off a super glue container. The nozzle on the hose reel is a length of plastic q-tip stick with a piece of paper clip for a handle. I still have one other major thing to do, and that is to fab up a roll bar/cage around the seat.

    Here's as far as I got on the Revell Snap Pete befor I decided to start a couple of trailers. I started the Peerless log trailer and then while I was working on it, I kept staring at the flatbed, and so I started it too. After I got it started, and after reading all the great reviews on the Lonestar, so that's what I'm working on now. I WILL get it FINISHED!!! I've already decided to change the interior color to better go along with the two-tone exterior color scheme I'm wanting to do.
