I knew you'd come up with a solution after some head scratching and rummaging through the parts box...looks great!

Very impressive so far,   I like to see people scratch building parts and you've built most of the truck this way ! !

Looking forward to more  !

Well without further ado,  I've been puttering w the 361 and finally have a roller !!! Using 22 inch 2 hole budds all around from moluminum,  and awesome drive tires from GW trucks . The front steers came from the KW snappy kit..

The dump box received a bunch of eye candy , attaching a section of small diameter rod to the bed side , basswood top boards, and thin sheet stock for the " rear trough ". The tabs are for the  door cylinder.20190911_123114.thumb.jpg.7d01e161956f46372c19064e2b988d8c.jpg

The 361 is mainly gonna be curbside since the hood is cast w the cab. Not wanting another multi yr project,  I'm just dropping a basic Nhc 250 Cummins and running the exterior pipes .

One detail this 361 had was what I'm calling a resonator above muffler w visable welds...well I had to model that !! 

A leftover strip of CTM welds from my pneumatic trailer to the rescue. 

Heres the actual truck,  you can see the " can "above the muffler.

Call me impressed! Awesome work! Nice touch with the weld seams!

Thanks ! I figured adding those small welds would make an otherwise boring muffler stand out . Hopefully the operators notice them lol

Thanks  !

I had a paint mishap,  totally my fault,  causing the parts a swim in the pond....getting in a hurry sucks. I had cab primed w light gray duplicolor and box was raw plastic...color wasnt even between them.  The cabs cleaned up and ready for BOTH to get primer ...thanks for being patient.

Heres what they looked like before swimming...really inspired me seeing everything together though. Definitely has the work truck appearance I wanted
