Freight liner FLC

Recommended Posts

 being stuck home and weather being cold and partly snowy has kept me at the bench a lot lately , having finished the TP build and the Aeromax, I needed a new project. After looking thru the stash, I settled on this. Color will possibly be something in the blue family,  but that could change, lol.

Brave indeed, tank halves were warped pretty bad, but what can ya do, it’s been in a box since 2000, lol. So things have been getting glued together and I’m making progress. Here are some pics in no particular order.

Holy warped trailer parts Batman! Frame rails were ( still are) pretty bad, rear fenders are complete junk, but I shall prevail......, I hope....

I put all the cross members in the frame,  did some twisting and swearing and now it sort of conforms to the tank body, so I’m hoping with some help from tape it’ll settle when I glue it  to the tank body. In the pics, that should be flat on the bench....., ya, not so much.

I also made new fenders, I think I’ll make matching ones for the front as well.

will probably have more to show tomorrow..........
