Well i decieded i was gonna go ahead and add another steer axel to the project so while im waitin on supplys I figured I'd try to get the wrecker body done. I added side pieces to build up the sides and make it look a lil closer to the truck I was modeling it after. In the process I fixed any pits or dents or just bad sctrach building LOL! Its in primer now but I still have few small things to do before I can put it on the done list.

here I have added the side pieces and putty to fill any gaps....

While I was reading your post, I got into an allergy triggered sneezing fit, and let me tell you, laughing and sneezing at the same time is interesting. Needless to say, the Kleenex box was diminished appreciably!

Romell, even though I'm not a truck modeler (the last one I built was in the mid 70's for my brother; the AMT "Movin' On" TV show Peterbilt issue,) this is a wild build, and I'm enjoying your scratch building. Looking forward to seeing how you light it up.

I know exactly what you went thru Jim as I had a allergy triggered sneeze attack right before I made this reply, 20 sneezes in a row is no fun when tryin to have fun reading a funny comment. Thx for the compliments fellas and I think you owe Jim and I a box of Kleenex Wayne :)

herea a small update fellas I added the door trim to the cab because it wasnt very defined in the resin. I used Evergreen styrene strips to handle this job...

I like what you have done so far. I think hat the fabrication/scratch building is the best part of any build.

I will be more than happy to provide Kleenex, provided I am continued to be allowed to view this spectacle of a build.
