Wish you well, Rockford on your cataract surgery.  I have had both eyes done and what a difference it made.  I waited about 5 years from one eye to the other but clarity and brilliance of color was fantastic.  

Do you have any bare metal foil or a Molotow pen?  If so put some on the Kenworth emblem on the bottom front of the fenders.  It will make a big difference.  You have done a great job on this build.  Snap kits are fun from time to time!  Keep the tank trailer going! 👍

 

I did the method of foiling the emblem before topcoating. I rubbed the topcoat off and it shows up great in some angles but not in others. I want to wait until I get my eye done and rub it down again.

Well work has stopped on the trailer because of the weather. The repair work I had to do on the glue deluge meant that I missed the last spell of warm weather for a while, so no spraying possible in my unheated, brick built garage. However, I do have another trailer to do, the ESCI 20ft container trailer so I'm going to start another thread witb that. This will keep me busy for a little while. However, should we get an "Indian summer" as they call it, I may be brave and get the paint out.

Would you believe today turned out to be beautiful, dry and warm so I bit the bullet and shot the primer on the tank! Came out ok, can't see the glue damage so I'm really relieved. Wednesday will be even better I believe so I'm going to give it a quick run with a scotchbrite pad and make it silver on Wednesday!!!!

Finally finished my tanker and put it behind the T600. Looks great! Tried it behind my other tractors and it looks great even though it's a snap kit. I'm happy with it considering I almost binned it. 

I need to find an easy way of hooking up the airlines and electrical cable. That's being pondered as we speak.
