BRBO International Paystar 5000

Recommended Posts

This will be my entry for the 2019 build off. It will be a Paystar heavy hauler with crane like the one shown. The Paystar will be from the mixer kit, the mixer itself having gone to another home. The crane is the KFS item. The sleeper will likely come from the 4300 kit.

The paystars are a good looking rig. How do you like the KFS crane? Been looking at their stuff.

Added the rear suspension, tank supports. Tried the cab bottom, sleeper bottom and the crane base on for size. I think my chassis is long enough.

Wow, it is a very nice piece. Did it come with the brass as well?

Added air line fittings. I promise they will get straightened.

They are #2 crimp beads. I probably should use hex seed beads.

Started playing with the air lines. I see I forgot the fittings at the junction block.

Also, there is this in the kit which looks like it is either optional or extra. Looks like a very heavy duty rear axle.

I told you that you'd be teaching me something. Those fittings and valves look great!

Thought I'd start on the engine. Found everything except the block and front cover. I remembered trading the mixer but not the engine. I knew I had one in the collection, which I could use but where was the other one? After much rummaging, I found it in the line boring machine masquerading as something else. So I stole the block and front cover from the one in the dump truck kit. Aaaah the pleasures of the golden age. Using a Ken Smith article, I started drilling. Are all V800s blue?
