That is gorgeous Brian. I agree with everything that was said above. What size tubing or wire are you using for all the chassis plumbing?

Thanks Pat. I used craft wire .010, .025 and phone wire.

What did you use to simulate the greasy 5th wheel? A very nice addition to the realistic weathering.

Thanks. I have heard of using oil based paints for this purpose and thought that's what you did. I was using actual 5th wheel grease, but since I no longer drive I can't use the real thing.
