Thank you Kerry .

I got to work on this a little bit today between fire works and cooking .

I got the cab lift cylinder started with the help from an Ken Smith article , I had to modify mine a little bit to fit the Revell kit , I made a safety catch bar that works like the real thing .

It may not be quite like the real thing but close enough.

Thank you guys for all the comments .

I got the engine and transmission painted , I had a little bit of a brain frat when I mounted the exhaust manifold I realized I had mount the turbo upside down.

Things happen its all good now.
