Thanks guys. It is slowly coming along. I can't wait until I can put all the chrome bits on.

It has been slow going adding parts to the cab. Yesterday I tackled another scratch built headache rack. Some hex sprue and a Coke truck side panel provided the materials. I had to fabricate a miniature miter box to make the 22.5 degree cuts needed for the frame. I just bought some Evergreen I beam from my LHS so after this post I will make the base. Check out the pics. And thanks to Trebor MFG for pdfs of their products WITH DIMENSIONS!

FINALLY!! the chassis is done! I have never put so many hours into ANY model before this one. For those of you who have built this kit, I am sure you will notice that I added a few mods. I think it turned out pretty nice.

Thanks guys. Still plugging away on finishing up the cab. Pesky mirrors keep falling apart.
