Got some weathering done, or should I say oily dirt.  Perhaps just a bit more high lighting to bring out some detail.

The engine looks great, but it sounds kind of like the valves need to be adjusted. 😀

With the engine basically done the front end of the chassis can be worked on.  Springs and front axle are in place and set with U-bolts and some small beads.  The steering knuckles have been made of brass tubing, both round and square.  One side of the square tubing was removed to make a C section.  The round tubing has been soldered to form a pivot point inside the wheel.  With proper backing and setting in place the front wheels will be posable.020.JPG.4742e7ccc921c0463881be2f59b257d2.JPG022.JPG.d06addea965c7838a7975536ca0aef59.JPG023.JPG.a7e094af61768e57ae13ca67a22c5ca5.JPG027.JPG.2a0c7f22d490f0dfb74733398032717e.JPG028.JPG.ef77d30027f7c0350eb8008eca526f6e.JPG021.JPG.4674d1308491c10b4736ce7cd731b39b.JPG

The cab sits a bit high in the front because of the radiator.  Some trimming on both the top of the radiator and the inner portion of the hood will bring it down to where it should be.
