I made steady progress over the weekend. There's a few details missing still but its really close to finished now.  I have an order thru ST supply to complete the build. I used fine quik crete powder for the weathering, mixing up a thin overall wash.

Enough chatter..enjoy ! 20220710_191534.jpg.5f5c8d81218848d05a92c0c19052cbe7.jpg

The original plan was a build showing a working truck used but maintained by the driver and owner, thats the reason for keeping the crud to a meow...

WOW Jeff you sure nailed it! What an Awesome looking Truck! I have only seen the CAT truck as a Dumper in upstate N.Y.! They are great looking Trucks.  

Thanks ! Your right about only seeing a few Cat trucks around upstate, and their always dump trucks.  Guess they only made them a few yrs

Looks fantastic.

Don't forget to add a unit number to it.

Especially on the rear charge hopper and the sides of the hood.

Quick crete weathering is the only way to do it!

Thanks ! I looked closer at photos and this truck has a unit number 13 on the hood side, I'll have to print a couple off 

My buddy Chris uses Quick crete for his builds, borrowed the tip
