Im really glad you had it to offer thx again. It really fits the build I think, I just wish i had it before I put all that work into the other cab LOL! ;)

I'm just setting here taking a small break from my one project and decided to check out the forum. Bout your issue, isn't that the way it always goes though with stuff? I mean after all the work you put into one thing to make it look good then something else comes along that fits. :)

What you could do is switch the cabs around, use your original cab for on the other project so that way no work was lost really, just switch around.

The new cab looks ok, i guess i am the only one that liked the old set up! The new one looks to , well everyday-factory type, not original. I liked the first set up way better, it looked more custom, more your way i guess. My way also! But either way, good work. Keep it up.

Well heres the update I promised but its not what i had planed because I ended up breaking one of the lights I made. I had also planed on doing a sort of tutorial for you but I didnt have my photographer (wifey) so next time. now heres the pics I have of the headlights.....I hope you enjoy

I used the tiny 1.8mm LED's from model train softwarethese guys have the best LED's and the best service and will even replace broken LED's

With LED's this small I was able to use the headlight bezels from the kit I used my dremel to make a small hole just big enough for the LED to stick through.

newlighting003.jpg

I used the heat from my soldering gun to melt a small space out of the plastic that covers the wires so I can splice wires and solder LED's together, then solder them.

Here you see the splice and solder

Heres the finished headlight....

I actually blinded myself when I hooked up the power source, these LED's are that bright!

Please stay tuned for more to come.

Romell, this is looking great. I have used those tiny LED's and you are right, they are incredibly bright for their size. I have some different colored ones that my son got and plan on using them one of these days. These big trucks are not my "cup of tea", but you are sure knocking this one out of the park. I love the 4 front wheel set up. I built two of the 6 wheel Tyrrell F1 cars and fabricated the working linkages and they look so cool when they turn together....this will look great on this truck. I look forward to the completion on this. :)

Okay, now you have gone too far! This build has officially become over the top when you are doing tutorials on YouTube!

Seriously, this is awesome to watch and I can't imagine how much this build will weigh with the batteries and stretched frame. The final product should be incredible and I can't wait to see it done.

Any chance you will offer those light bars to us less skilled modelers?
