1954 Maxim Pumper In Service

Recommended Posts

It's been a few months now since this project started.  It had its moments:angry: but we got through them!B)  The hose bed has been filled, and all is ready to go.

Thanks for all of the comments that were received during the building process.  It has been fun, even with the glitches along the way.

Absolutely breathtaking Charlie. Every time you make a post of ANYTHING you are building, I learn something new.............a way to do something, a new material, a new idea, and if I can actually put 5% of that knowledge to work, I will improve my skills by 100%! WOW!

Truly amazing pumper. I looked at the work bench section again to remind me how this build came into being. You have done a fantastic job and that includes the painting. If I may have one question, how did you make the hoses? They look fantastic too.

The hose in the bed is sewing elastic that was given a wash of Tamiya light tan acrylic thinned with water. It comes in two basic sizes, 1/8" and 1/4" and is white.  The hard suction on the left side of the truck is plastic tubing wrapped in masking tape and painted flat black.
