    I use Bare Metal Foil, trim , paint with Tamiya clear. When dry, use Glossy Accents clear acrylic to provide dimension to the lens.

    JT,
    Another stunning build!  She looks AWESOME!  You are like Midas - all of your builds looks great!  What ever came of the Simba ARFF project?  Life has kept me away from the forums pretty much...

    Terry,
    What an AWESOME collection of "In Progress" projects!  I think we have about the same amount!  I like the modification and bodywork process, but get hung up on the "completion" aspect... I really like the tanker above and the Mack AK Bulldozer hauler!  Can you share the source for the modified tanker body above?  I'd like to give that a try!  Great mixer build thread by the way!  We have several similar mixers in use here in the Orlando area.  Fantastic workmanship!  I'll be following this build for sure!

    Here is a little update.  The rear body is glued together and the roll up door panels have been secured in place. Working on a hard suction hose. Roughed out the outlining of the windows with a custom mixed Vallejo "rubber" tone.   Lots more to do!

    Is this close to 1/24 or 1/25 scale?  I may have to take a ride over to Dollar General. ..

    Meng f-350 Conversion?
    Has anyone cut down the Meng Ford f-350 cab into a regular cab?  Been thinking about doing it to mine...  Would love to see anyone's photos if you have done the conversion!  Thanks!

    Elvin,
    PM me your address and I'll put it in the mail this week.  No charge - that's what the hobby is all about.

    Is this kit out now? If so, anyone know if Hobby Lobby has them yet? I have a project that I was working on that I heavily modified the kit sides to resemble a 1920's ambulance. Got stuck with smoothing the areas of modification  (now solved) and realized that the kit sides were too short.   So, I scratchbuilt new sides, cut the roof and chassis.  So, I need replacement a chassis, roof and floor pan.

    Joe,
    Awesome work!   I use Rustoleum Black Texture paint.  You can get it at Walmart. Perfect for bedliners and other exterior parts where you want a textured finish.

    You did a fantastic job on this conversion! As a builder of primarily emergency vehicles, I like the stock mock up! I can see some emergency lighting, creative graphics and gold leaf lettering...  AWESOME!
