Recommended Posts

Just finished up the AMT Autocar A64B tractor kit:

The build is mostly box-stock except for the 3-D printed interior door handles & window cranks:

The exhaust was replaced with 5/16" aluminum tube, and the glad hand airlines are #22 black wire.  Decals are from the AMT/Ertl International Paystar5000 Cement Mixer.  Color is Testors Dark Red. AC lines are some small black wire from a broken USB cable.  Hydraulic tank is from the AMT/Ertl Dump Trailer.

Thanks, guys.  I appreciate the comments.

Brian, the stack is actually the same length as the one from the kit.  It was a one-for-one swap.  Now I just have to figure put how to make the curved stack to replace the solid one on the Autocar dump.
