  1. Thanks , it took a few years to fabricate everything and hundreds , literally , of the real truck to capture the enormous size of these work trucks . I gained an extensive appreciation for the drivers after meeting them to properly detail their office on wheels. My favorite parts are the drivers lunch box , sans bologna sandwich and the absolutely important " slump gauge" . Any questions please ask, I'd love to see ya build one . Their not so much hard , its a straight frame truck w large subassemblies.
  2. I built an Oshkosh FDM a few years ago, with tons of help from Gary Wallace who cast the suspension, and drum . He also made quite a few other parts . Most of the body parts were scratchbuilt by me w plans from the factory manuals . Here's a few shots of mine I'd recommend sending Gary a pm see if he has any random parts available, the project is very interesting.
  3. Really nice looking truck ! Thanks for joining the 21 brbo , well have a voting poll in Dec
  4. nice progress !! the color combo looks fantastic together too looks like great minds think alike on their color choices lol
  5. Looks great ! The color fits the era perfectly I've been mired in home projects too, haven't even sat at bench in what seems like forever now Best part of the hobby , its always there when we get back
  6. We decided to sell our classic car and buy something newer. The cutlass was becoming a huge money pit so after a few calls we landed a 2003 Mach 1 ! Low miles car and Azure blue ..can't be happier
  7. Thanks Gator ! I haven't had any ambition to work on models lately been busy working around house
  8. The cab and hood look very good with that stripe pattern Fantastic restoration too
  9. Progress looks good ! Good thing ya noticed the color difference early on
  10. Very nice work The interior details really sell this as a hard working truck
  11. Looks good from here ! Going 0/0 opens up several unique options . Estes has that yellow orange color w black, very cool combo..and the chrome wheels could be toned down w 0000 steel wool lightly to create a dull aluminum sheen ! Who's gonna critique ya for creating a model that the fleet may have picked up at auction ... Carry On. !
  12. nice details throughout ! looks ready to roll with all the air lines too, really like the wire looms tip
  13. Bummer on the leg , glad ya can at least find relaxation puttering w a build
