Thanks for the comments guys. It’s slow going but any progress is good progress right? Built my fuel cell today. I’m gonna work on mounting my tank and compressors next.

Just a few more updates, made some tiny mounts for my sway bar endlinks. Also knocked out a tank and compressor mount. The last picture is just detail work to my bag plates.

Beautiful work. The air system looks good. Air the compressors from Shapeways? I think I have the same but I’m looking to make some Zeniths.

Nice.... have to ask what model kit you started with, the AMT is a '69-'72 (depending on the grill), I thought only promos came as '68.  The side trim around the wheel well is the big difference for the molded on trim.  BTW I own a '68 Long Bed, survivor.

I’m not sure on the kit. I bought it as an old built up. I know mpc has a 68 kit.

So is most of the parts printed in resin by a resin printer. or are they cased in resin like the compressors and diff.

I'm watching "Texas Metal" as I am writing this . You are doing an excellent job. I love the wheel and tire choice. I have a 72 under way, where I shortened the bed. I'm leaning more towards a simpler model, utilizing mostly kit parts.  After looking at your build, I have to get back to mine.
