Having followed many of your fantastic builds in the past, I look forward to seeing this one unfold Dave. It looks like you're off to a good start. I've often wondered what you use for inspiration...do you have access to actual blueprints or do you scale from photographs? Excellent work however you do it.

This will be cool! I'll bet one of the first (of probably many to come) modifications of the ALF kit.

Looks good so far!

This is coming along great as usual.

Are you going to include a full hose bed or just a couple of pre-connects off the back?

What are you using for the gold striping? it works well and adds alot to the overall look.

thank you for the nice comments guy's.. aaron, no this will not have a hose bed, only set up as a draft rig, or direct hook up to a hydrant... have a few update here today, body is polished out and the lettering has begun, here's a pic, have more up on my fotki site.. thanks for looking dave.

That's amazing! I just got one of the kits last night at the TNMCC meeting, and by looking at your Fotki, I see you have completed 3 already? WOW! That looks like a very complex kit, I spent about 20 minutes just looking at the parts.
