Time to tag everyone's build so I can follow along. 👍

Thanks guys, I’ve built 3 of the trailers before, but have not built the rig kit before, I’m sure it’ll be standard italeri fare as far as frame/engine goes. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one at a show, and maybe only one here. Should be a fun build.

This will be a good build to follow, just a thought though, are the Ford and trailer the same scale?

I think this is why I'm interested in this one. Haven't seen it done before!

They aren’t , but, I ‘think’ it’s going to be close enough to get away with it. The last 1/24 italeri rig I did I paired with AMT’s flatbed trailer, and it looks pretty good.

Thanks all, been plugging away on this. In no particular order ( cause my pics always show up out of order) , got frame painted, cab/hood/sleeper in primer and interior bits of said parts are in a coat of mythical maroon, and the engine has a coat of color on it. Decided to make the engine slightly dirty on this one, not horrible, but some grime. Thanks for following along, should have a roller by the weekend I think.
