I saw this truck built and photographed in 2005 - I wanted to build a model of it and started it in 2006 modifying an Italeri 377 cab and hood. I put the model back in the box and slowly gathered parts and pieces for the build. I started back on it in mid November.

The chassis is Evergreen strip #392 and the crossmembers are Evergreen #409.

The above pic shows how I install glass - a tip passed to me by Rick Mark.

Doug Walker make the Schlumberger logos for me.

I need to trim the excess decal film off the peep window.

If you look carefully in the horn snowcap - the reflection is me and my camera crouching over the model. This has to be my favorite pic I've taken in a long time. The photograph background is reflecting in the side of the hood and the person with the ballcap appears in scale.

That would have made a nice "Real or Model" picture for Harry! Wonderful work as always, Tim.

Awesome build Tim. I have one question though, what was the truck used for?

That is a wild looking rig. Is there any scratch building of that contraption in your future?

That is a tough looking Pete, very nice!! How do you cover something like a radiator surround with all of those curves with bmf and not get one wrinkle?

Tim,

Another excellent build. It would be great to see it kitted out with all the plant and equipment in the photo.

Dave.
