Very nice work Tom. Is the Neway pusher axle from Gary Wallace?

Nope, stock length from the kit, though I did shorten the wheelbase of the tandems which gave more room for the pusher.

Got the chassis done, wired, and painted. Painted the wheels, added the tires, (from Jamie Rahmoeller), painted the whole lot, and did a quick mockup to see what it looked like. So far, so good! Am working on a Tip Turbine engine for her....................one step at a time!IMG_2705_zps1wvxoe8t.jpgIMG_2704_zpst2spyjro.jpgIMG_2703_zpszb25hvcx.jpgIMG_2702_zpsztmf9rux.jpgIMG_2701_zpsocf2azts.jpg

Just have to finish the engine, add a very small rubber wheel well opening flare to the hood, install the glass and all trim, and well, then find something ELSE to add to it!

Well, after a while sitting there looking forlorn, I got some more work done on the old girl. I finished installing the Tip Turbine engine with the scratch built air intake ductwork. Got the rest of the piping done for the hydraulics and fuel lines. Added the radiator and brace, hinged the hood, added hood holdowns, and added the roof marker lights, all nameplates and marker lights on the cab, and the Tip Turbine hood scoop. Added appropriate reflective markings to the dump body. Still have to add the horns and mirrors, wipers, frame extensions to the front bumper and the bumper and nameplate stand, exhaust, and detail the dump body with a tarp retraction system, lights, etc. But it sure is looking better!
