  1. Nice build, I have been into rat rods lately. I like everything about them but the rust. I think it would look cool if you put the radiator low in front of the axle and leaned it back at an angle.
  2. Thanks, glad you like it. Just installed blue lights under the trailer too. If you have not seen it you should google the truck Disorderly Conduct.
  3. Thanks for the comments! I am slowly working on the trailers when I get the time.
  4. gotnitro beat me to it but I also got chain binders from Kit Form Services, they are photo etched metal. Just replace the styrene pins with something like paperclips (you'll see). Also got some scale chain.
  5. Here's a quick video of the steering.
  6. Nice build, I think you and I are the only ones to hand build a working 5th wheel but I couldn't talk myself into doing the rivets and I tought about it several times.
  7. Glad you reworked the fenders, looks much better. A big Texas bumper like the 1 on my truck will fit nice. I got my bumper custom made from the ebay seller in post #77 but I don't think his brake is big enough to do a 14th scale. You should use 1/16 stainless. Harbor Freight has 2 different sized breaks cheap but I don't know how good they are. Here's a high traffic forum for the King Hauler. If you havn't seen it you should spend some time there, many impressive builds.
  8. I put 2 of the blue lights on the hood so when it's up they shine down on the engine.
  9. Thanks for the comments, much appreciated The answer is in post #1, Losi Micro Crawler now called a Trail Trekker.
  10. Thanks for the comments. Ready to see some lights! The side marker lights are darker than I want and the camera makes them look even darker. I used an orange sharpie to make them darker and Future polish to hold the covers on and the Future polish made the Sharpie darker. I can fix it, just time consuming.
  11. I used peices of an antenna to detail the engine and really like how it turned out. I made radiator supports using paperclips and hood supports with 32 gauge wire. I also used nylon screen to give the radiator more texture.
