Hi everyone,

as my avatar suggests, I have untill now been a 'watcher' so guess I better show something I built last year...

A&N 'Australian COE' transkit, on a Italeri chassis, with a modified Auslowe trailer -

Looks great. I like it. Im guessing the cage on the windshield is for wildlife, or does it serve some other purpose?

Beautiful build! How did you do the pinstriping?

Thanks everyone, it was generally a fun build.

THe 'cage' or stoneguard as we know them is exactly that, an effort to prevent stone chips being thrown up by passing vehicles and such and hitting the screen.

The pinstriping was applied using KFS/Auslowe striping sets, which come in individual pieces - putting the corners on first and carefully measuring the gaps between for the straight parts - it took days to do the striping on this truck!

Cheers

Kelvin
