Hi,

Looking good!

Try ironing a bedsheet and using that as a background for your model when you photograph it - it may give you a more consistent colour (and use a daylight bulb as well - or photograph outside (but not in direct, bright sunlight)).

An easy way to get improve the looks of the straps on your aircleaner would be to use bare metal foil.

The model has turned out nicely - have you got a trailer to put behind it?

Cheers,

Jim

They look good but they need stripes like Movin' ON!

The stripes from the original issue (early '80's) work also very well: built out-of-the-box (the Melton Truck Lines and United diesel mudflap decals were included).

The only thing I added was the headache rack from amt's KW Alaskan Hauler.

Her I hooked it to ERTL's Great Dane trailer (OOB).
