great work !
OH that is sweet..!
Alain your work is great and I love your detail work. Truck looks awesome!!
Question though, how did you do your hydro cylinders?
That is a really good looking truck It has been a pleasure to follow the build thread.
wonderful build ;-))
I have enjoyed following your build. You have some very nice skills. Very nicely done.
Alain your work is great and I love your detail work. Truck looks awesome!! Question though, how did you do your hydro cylinders?Rich
To make the cylinders I use Styrenn tubes or aluminum and Rod the rod in alum.
Excellent work. It looks as realistic as it gets.
Are you going to build the front plow for it? I think you should. The truck is awesome either way.
Alain, Are you going to build the front plow for it? I think you should. The truck is awesome either way. Be Well Gator
Yes Marc I finish the weathering on strings and the back of the truck and then I make the front plow.
You really bring your builds to life! You are truly an artist! Excellent work!!!
looks real ! superb build !
Outstanding work! You have made it look like a real rig. I'll bet if you took a photo outside with the right background you could not tell that it is a model. Great job!
My Advanced on my snow plow. There are days that its going really very wrong. Saturday sa has been very bad. I was taking pictures for my diorama is testing when a gust of wind lifted the cardboard and the truck project into a plate of water. Beautiful result
Oh what a shame Alain.
Sorry to see this has happened.
I'm sure you can rebuild it though.
I seen this unfortunate disaster on Facebook the other night......made me sick to see what happened to your work.....
I was totally shocked to see the mack in pieces. I know how that feels. And your work is much better than mine. What I did was put it for a little while.
Then I brought it out and finished it .
I know you have to be upset, frustrated and........................................?? looking forward to the rebuild .
I feel like playing Taps. But every one else might be right, a rebuild is still a possibility. My deepest condolences.
That is one beautiful plow ... just take a break and breathe ,,, I'm sure you can get it back together ,,, weathering can hid a lot!
Thank you friends for your good comments. I started the repair. I looked at the positive side of the accident. I'll make some corrections on the job done too quickly.I'm lucky only pieces a redo are the clamches of the Hood. The other major point is the rear column, it is curved. The other parts are breaks
