Always like this paint scheme nice choice
I have another version of this kit. I will follow your build.
Nice truck !
Always thought that was a good looking rig, looking forward to seeing this built
Built one of these years ago. If I remember correctly, it went together very smoothly ...Joe
I want to build one of these, can't wait to see you get going on this.
First Over The Road Training truck I drove was a Flattop 10 speed Cat FLD120 Dark blue.
Might want to change your title from 112 to 120.
Looking forward to this build.
No progress in January
Dont get discouraged , its Feb now and still plenty of time to finish your build !
Really looking forward to your build, these trucks arent seen as frequently as other kits
Have photos of progress in February but I have problems between my phone and laptop.
Build a short hood , hence the FLD 112 designation. Have built lower portion of integrated 48 inch sleeper cab. need to build the midroof.
Frame rails are made and front is built to mount Cummins M 11 power.
photos as soon as I can figure things out , I am not that technical. Thanks.
Good to hear your still puttering with the FLD !
If your trying to move photos from android phone to site..its pretty easy. Click on the paper clip below text box, click files, that should access your phone gallery. Select photo and depending on size it should automatically load. Ya just need to click the little + on photo and site adds it to post.
Actually the FLD 112 belongs to the Century class as had a 99 FLD 112 pretty decent truck other than the doors self locked when you closed them.
Have been corrected Freightliner did make other versions of the 112 that I didn't know about.
Sad considering I've driven truck since 2001 most my early trucks were Freightliner.
Then I got spoiled with Kenworth & Peterbilt
Thanks for the posting help.
That is a great choice for a new project ! Looking forward to seeing what you do with it .
Finally got some photos to upload. Short hood , basic M 11 fitted, Cab converted to short mid roof. No roof yet. Roof roughed in. Lots of finishing to do and add visor.
You've been busy !!! Awesome work
Glad to help w posting pics
One more photo. rear cab mount and exhaust rack
Very Nice work!!
Cab, hood and air shield primed. rear axle set.
This is coming along very nicely.... I love this kit... It's one of my favorites... You've taken it a step further with these mods, and they look GREAT!!
Cummins M 11
Basic tractor chassis and jifflox chassis complete
looking good !
