  1. Been awhile but changed a couple of things to etch, looks much better than a printed badge I think
  2. Alain, that is coming along very well, love your work
  3. Done a little more to the CAT,all badge work is finished and the front bar is also finished All that is left to do is the 1/4 guards and share tanks, my add an ice pack also
  4. Finally got around to having the brackets cast in white metal, while I was at it I made some new plastic style guards
  5. Dash and firewall converted to RHD, this was done by a good friend of mine, I just cast it for him
  6. Jarda Great work and the detail is amazing as usual , shame about the "logging" accident
  7. As you can see Aaron it is very prostar, but the subtle differences are no side skirt, square tanks, no international badging, different front bar, etc, The US version is ugly, but easy to build if someone wanted to have a go, mod the prostar cab and scratch the hood
  8. They are fitted with a C15, I'll chop the max force and scratch the head of a C15 to make it look close In Australia we don't lounge around, the sleeper is just that a sleeper, it has a bunk in it
  9. In Australia, we have the Prostar, but under the name or Banner if you like of the Cat Group, so I decided to have a go at building an Aussie version, here is the grill, badge and front bar so far, on the Aussie version they have a square tank and no side flaring,also have to scratch the hood 1/4 guards
  10.

  11. "Any feedback on the project is always welcome, even suggestions on it are also. I hope you enjoyed this update. " Ok, you asked for some feed back, well I think this is just terrible, the frame is a mess, from someone wanting to make a accurate model, using a shelf bracket is far from that, and steel at that, cutting it with a dremel and marking with a marker pen is not an accurate way to build a frame, nor is it reliable for consistency, Suggestion, I suggest that you throw the steel frame away, and start again with sheet brass, brass when treated with the respect it deserves ca
  12. That is so cool, and beautifully built to Did you scratch the engine on the rear?
  13. Nice so far, heres a little trick that you could use for the tanker, the plastic really doesn't need to be heated, if you are using something like PVC pipe, (we call it storm water pipe) try this experiment, cut say 4 inches of pipe, then cut your self a bit timber, or acrylic of say, 1/2 in thick and as wide as the tank you are making, apply pressure to the top to squash it, and slide the timber or acrylic into the centre and let go, watch what it does, the timber will be self centring, and will hold the shape real nice, obviously experiment with what you need to get the correct shape,but i
