Wow awesome small details  ! Who cast the propane tanks ? I have an oxy torch set from kfs , these details really make a service truck pop

Looking forward to your build on the T600  ! I've heard they have a reputation lol

Jeff, I believe I got the propane tanks from larrygscale on eBay. Actually I got a lot of the really small stuff from him. I have a oxy torch somewhere in my stash. I'll be looking for that!

I hope it a good reputation!...Joe

Very cool. I lease out a couple of these things every month, and am good friends with the owners at Brutus Truck Bodies, who specialize in aluminum service bodies. Fun to spec out and build in real life, and I've always had a plan to build a scale one.

Thanks Dan, I work with these almost every day. So I'm always looking at them and taking notes. I'll be sneaking in a few pictures , we' not allowed to have our phones at work, so sneak is the proper term for pictures..LOL...Joe

I don't know when the changes will stop with me and this build, but here goes...I found an unbuilt Cat 3408 in my stash, so I put it together. Here it is in the metal frame.

Awesome job  !!!! This is really gonna be cool build.  Best part your working knowledge of how these trucks can be spec'd out .

Usually hear bad fitment issues w these kw t600 cabs , your definitely whooping into shape 

Don mills sells those d ring door latches perfect for your truck.

   Joe,

         That is going to be an intensive project. You are off to a great start . There is a lot of detail pieces available . And a nice set from KFS.

And Howard's stuff is worth the scratch .

 

  Be Well
