yeterday i started by making smaller exhaust ends , the ones from the donorkit where way to big , the pipes themselfs where perfect

then closed the front of the bed with a industrial looking plate / shape end added some styreen in the middle section (rough)

395098_209656342500617_357524068_n.jpg

then fitted the crane arm

everything together

and the arm can move so later on i can hang a car begind it :) , also will need hydro lines and stuff added on the cilinder

today i added some railings and began with some diamond plate floorboards

576457_209697589163159_114232940_n.jpg

added some brackets on the arm and a brace between the exhaust pipes

29415_209697615829823_931153058_n.jpg

then made some motors with a axle , just a fantasy set up ..

400342_209697639163154_1161271323_n.jpg

made a control thing (maybe will add more) and later on a will add hydro lines to the whole system

68390_209697655829819_527874278_n.jpg

put a spotlight on the arm so they can see in the dark (lol)

406799_209697689163149_919038189_n.jpg

and did some more diamond plating

404667_209697719163146_879387099_n.jpg

used a old dragster rollbar as a crane arm strut

297129_209697732496478_524470004_n.jpg

and the beginning of the hydro lines

267764_209728522493399_878891210_n.jpg

getting more matt as it dry's

554036_209728542493397_1810616492_n.jpg

60728_209728559160062_1408018693_n.jpg

426275_209728572493394_494606253_n.jpg

it dry's very very fast (army green paint) and so i already tryed some detail painting in silver

576477_209728589160059_2117036280_n.jpg

229928_209728619160056_1558588278_n.jpg

33847_209728635826721_2044098508_n.jpg

the green of the cab is the same paint , only with clear coat over it , look how difefrent the color is without clear on it :)

598789_209728649160053_1503641230_n.jpg

i was thinkin of using these rims

564870_209728665826718_131888568_n.jpg

but also liked these , the green is acrylic paint and will come of real easy

317827_209728682493383_506946316_n.jpg

548915_209728719160046_934966933_n.jpg

but i want dual tyres and i dont have that light brown paint anymore and then i could not make sleeves in color at the back (deep dish) so this will be the best option at the back and on the front just the wheel as it is

406802_209728819160036_1290052731_n.jpg

1032_209728842493367_1437427174_n.jpg

12730_209728795826705_770793490_n.jpg

then clear coated all the green

281449_210050942461157_886527084_n.jpg

the block itself is grey i sprayed chrome and brushed it with a dry brush

281467_210050952461156_486198368_n.jpg

going to do the woody theme on the bed as well between the railings and it will almost match the cab and run through

tried something different on the headers multiple layers , due to the darkness while taking shots its not really showing , irl its more glossy

i used grey as base , then watery gold , bit of blue , a tiny more gold and then very thin watery chrome

well i painted the exhaust pipes dark grey i did not like the chrome and kept the end tips chrome ..

i hated teh stance and the axle was mounted how it had to be for the 1953 kit , i already did that in the beginning , now i took a new axle and placed it more up front

197396_211035639029354_1812670877_n.jpg

rear wheels are fixed on forgood already and with the front wheels loose on this is about the ride hight / stance

14388_211035682362683_1209616266_n.jpg

with the engine and the grille loose in front of it

534599_211035719029346_1476676440_n.jpg

527452_211035742362677_2063329036_n.jpg

then took chrome and painted the diamond plating silver

282261_211035755696009_447187221_n.jpg

22494_211035775696007_408361483_n.jpg

391769_211035809029337_1834140197_n.jpg

this already shows betetr the clear coat on the green because now the silver creates reflections , i'll bet when i can make some good pics with daylight it all will show better

i dont think a 1/25 scale person would fit in that

you already mentoned you thought it was 1/32 on the previous page , i already finished this one ages ago :P

so what you are saying is that revell makes 1/32 kits and sells them as 1/25 ?? because the cab is just a cab from the revell dan fink speed wagon .. the chop is from revell .. not trying to be a smartass but you seem to have some weird reference for the size :)

the cab is as big as all my other rods ... just the front part of a stock speed wagon body with real wood instead of the plastic wood ...

but this is actually a pretty ond thread :D

wel since i'm here here is a finished picture it looks like there is few space behind the door but the seat is against the back wall and leg room is there
