sean the cab is still lose

on the picture of the instuctions its very difficult to see if the batteryboxes are good in place

so look very close to the real one,s and testfit the cab on the chassis , it looks its on the right spot now

the color is a sandcolor of revell aqua and come,s very close to the real one

but the hole interior has this color with a kind of darkbrown line on the door patch and behind the seats

but i have fun to make it and look to the others

some are amazing

next thing i figured out is the color of the chassis and cab

have some colors in my mind but.... it can always change

keep on modeling and have fun to do it

this week i put the newway-airride under the chassis that i make already 3.5cm shorter

and i mock-up how it looks





and now doing the engine and a little plumbing


Hi Jacobus, nice start to your project! I like your rear suspension setup! I also have this kit, so I'm very interested in your build.  I see you might mount the fuel tanks right in front of the rear wheels. The cutouts at the bottom rear of the cab are there for fuel filler neck clearance. You might want to fill these cut outs on the cab if you want to install the fuel tanks like you want them, unless you want to use 4 fuel tanks... Or just leave it the way it is. This is a picture of a CL9000 which has the fuel tanks in the stock locations, if you can blow up the picture you will see the fuel cap is aligned with the cutout in the cab skirt:
