Working on a twin turbo sure proved to be a headache.

If you can find any info on a cat 3408 twin turbo your lucky. I did find some info on it and heres what it's going to look like.

It looks like I might have made an error in my measurements I cant't close the hood the exhaust pipes out of the turbos are to wide. Back to the drawing board.

This is just an unreal build Kenny!

What did you use for the wood accsents in the dash and doors?

Rob,

The wood inserts are made from a sheet of veneer that I found at Michaels arts and crafts store in Richmond in the model supplies and paints section.

I just stained the veneer and put lots of wood clear coat on it.

Thanks Kenny, I'll have to look for that the next time I am in Michaels. Do you think it may be to big for 1/25th?

Truely though, you are a master builder. I was looking at your Camaro and it is equally as nice.

Rob,

I don't think that it is too big for 1/25 scale.

I think that it was birch and it has a real small grain on it.

Wow, I am totally blown away by that engine. I was also trying to get some info and pics of the twin-turbo 3408. One of my dream models is "Papa Clyde" of the Bill Signs Trucking fleet. I found a few pics of the engine but the turbo set up and the whole tubing is different. Let me know by PM if you want more.
