I’ve built two of these, nice kit, interior is fantastic on them, biggest issue is fitting the floor to the frame.

March update...  Things have been a little slow...life get in the way sometimes.  but progress is being made.  Mainly on the motor.  I think we're going for a Knight's Trucking paint scheme. at least that's the way I'm leaning now.  Was also able to pick up some PE for both the chassis and the interior.  (Probably won't use the Chassis one, save it for the Lonestar kit) also picked up some "glad hands".  So progress is being made...slow but sure and enjoying the build.

Things are progressing.  This is the first kit I've built in a great many years and so far, I'm enjoying the effort.  The engine is complete, the frame is probably 50 % complete.  I'm in the process of stripping some of the Chrome parts as the air tanks don't need a chrome finish.  Silver or aluminum is a better color.  I've also thought about plumbing the airlines, however I've not found a good source describing those or where they go on this model, so I'll go back to making this basically a stock build.  I'm using both the Mobius instructions and the Revell instructions to build this kit.  Anyway, here's April's update with I hope another update in the next week or so....

Due to family issues, I've not been able to work much on the truck so the May Update is minimal work.  hopefully in the next week or so I'll make some progress and post.
