BRBO 2021 - Freightliner FLC and Flatbed

Recommended Posts

  • 2 months later...

I'm finally able to get back to it.

Trailer: I was working on trying to finish it and realized I needed to do a bit of modification before some of the parts I wanted to do would fit.

I have the work done and it's back in paint, I'm going to let it cure for a few days.

Tractor: I have the rear bumper mounted and am working on getting the fenders mounted (nothing is glued yet).

I did a quick mock-up to get an idea what it's going to look like.

Back when I have more!!

That’s looking really good! 

once you build a few of the multi part cabs, you’ll start to like them, they seem to be more crisp than the one part cabs.

I have the fenders mounted, the rear panel is done just needs glue.

Fuel tanks and battery boxes almost ready to install.

Was working on the cab decals but messed up the nose piece on the right side and had to order a new set.

Still waiting for the new decals.

Did a couple of mock-up pics.

The trailer is basically done I just need to add a few pieces when I add the load.

Back when I have more!!

nice staining on the wood deck ! It really makes the grain stand out 

I spy replacement lights too..guessing CTM ?  

The decals on the tractor look great, hopefullly the replacements wont take long to arrive 

Wish I could take credit but they are decals from Modeltrucking. Look way better then I expected.

CTM thru ST Supply

Supposedly the decals shipped yesterday.

I had last week off from work and was able to get quite a bit done.

It seems like this project has been nothing but one step forward and two steps back.

I think I can finally call the chassis done; the interior is done I just need to install it.

Some detail painting or BMF and add the shiny bits.

That's it for now, see you Under Glass.
