hey guys working on this kit. my second big rig model!
really nice kit. my only complaints about it , my kit was missing the front part of the differential, I had to make up a part for it ! lol also I wanted to use the patriot decals. but they instantly shattered when the touched water! so if anyone is making this same kit I would recommend clear coating those decals ahead of time, also the rear tires touch. not much can be done, the sidewalls of the tires are very round and not even
heres some progress.
the chassis is about 80% done. the cab will be weathered as well, going for a nice working truck look, only changes i made was making some new rear shocks and mounts and making it a single stack.
and here is a couple pics so you can get an idea of the weathering look I'm going for on the cab and exhaust
Super job on the weathering, just right, not over done. Nice work on the A/C lines and backup light, details make a difference. Hey you guys notice how weathering really adds depth and dimension. I am working on a Western Star dump truck and undecided on clean or weathered, your Pete just convinced me which way to go. Thanks
