      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

This has been posted elsewhere, but I thought it would be appropriate here too.

These are earlier shots of my Phantom L-700, The front suspension (coil spring)works, steering is posable. The rear has working leaf springs

Painted finally. This is still mock up. The chassis is together but the cab and Utility box aren't permanently mounted yet. What isnt red will be black or chrome, including BMF where appropriate.

Early body work, Suspension.

Long way to go yet, but I know the hard parts are over. Body work isn't a strong point with me, but it's done. Now on to general assembly and interior, and scratchbuilding some more components, finishing up that Auto Crane, a project in itself. The idea is a truck for roadside and offroad assistance and repair. Not an actual wrecker, but still a part of my little "Southgate Towing" fleet. Dan

Thanks David. Interesting suggestions, but it's purpose is already decided as already mentioned. Still room for a dog in the picture though.

I dont know what you mean by paint needing something, but maybe it will look more like it as it's completed. I seldom do multicolor paint jobs, and anyway, I want it to match the scheme of my wreckers already built. Maybe I should post them so you'll see? :) Dan
