Kenworth Bullnose (Illini Replica)

Excellent update Michael!

I'd be scared silly to use 3 different colors, good job.  The aluminum really sets this build off too.  Very nice.

That's really coming on . I love the bumper you made and those CTM marker lights are fantastic

    Nice job on the paint. That had to be a chore to do all that taping on that cab. The end result looks good.

Thank you very much. It is done! Shure it needs little corrections on the golden stripe in front. But now I allow the color to dry a couple of days.

Thank you very much.

Worked on a few details, headlights, backlights and marker lights. Also the air cleaner, polished with Uschi's chrome powder.

Thank you guys, but i made a little change. When i look to the pictures i saw always a frog with scary big eyes. I changed the headlights to a smaller one and think this is closer to the truck on the picture. What do you mean?

Very nice work Michael! It looks just like the 1:1. The miyuki beads work well for mounting the hardware.

Thank you, I'll try to get as close as possible to the truck from the picture. Sure, not everything is correct, but this happens when you try to shrink your big rig. :D

Today, only a minor detail upgrade. A logo on the front, printed with the desktop printer and glued over BMF. The panels on the sides with the marker lights were

made of 0,3mm Aluminium Sheet, also the the sunshade visor.
