TAT 2018- California Pete TMC Transportion livery

Recommended Posts

Not much to show at the moment. Frame is going together and working on glueing engine halves and axles togeoand cleaning them up. 

This is going to be more out of the box with a few add ons, it’ll have the Mercury Sleeper on it, metallic black with TMC livery on it. 

I asked a friend of mine if he has a highboy flatbed and said he’d look, just in case he doesn’t, if anyone has one they can afford to let go? Let me know and see what can be worked out!

This will be fun, I am doing the same kit with a Log trailer for the 2018 TAT. Being that we are doing the same kit, it will push me to put my all into it. Should be fun.

I look forward to seeing how your progresses. I really don't care who wins the TAT, I like being pushed to get it done and some friendly competition.

Same here but I wish that was the case!! I have two hot rods I’ve been building and they’ve pulled me from the rigs for a bit!! Working on my Shelby hill climber and a C1 67 Camaro!!

If it weren't for the fact that I work from home, I would never get anything done on my models. But as it is, in the afternoons things slow down and I can work on my models for about 3-4 hours a day in between phone calls. I can even be working on stuff while I talk to customers, I just can't get up and go spray a body or anything, I have to stay at my desk/model table.
