painted the shifterknob and steering wheel while they where inside lol

made the steering wheel brown wood like and chrome..

the knob started with a base of chrome , then a light wash with brown and orange clear from tamiya over that , almost looks like polished walnut wood

Excellent work rich as always. Can't wait to see that truck come together. That thing already looks mean. Love the little details of the wrench and magazines. Keep it gong, can't wait to see more.

thnx ! tbh i had some issues with the truck :unsure:

when i was modifying the chassis it went alright .. then i wanted to make custom wheels and after finishing i realised they didnt look like what i expected and well when i tryed to get them off all the steering linkage and the part that makes the hub steer broke off ..

so now í will have to either scratch some new stuff of use something from a cheap kit i hope to find

to be cointinued :lol:

thnx guys

and @ hak , yes but tbh i didnt have the right tyres in the parts box ..i have one nice set but thats for a future build

that racer is actually build with a bunch of scrap parts i had onlt a loose body with busted roof and just started building this to put on the truck :)

so i just had to wing it a bit with what i had and could come up with using some spare parts ...

thnx Ira !!

one small step further >

needs a tiny bit of bondo on the sides of the chassis and the sides of the plate (where the trailer hools in > what do you guys call that over there ?????)

i'm in doubt on the chassis color , either metal grey or black ....
