I like what you did with the exhaust tips Darrell! Similar to a Deora I did a long time ago.

Nice lookin' motor Rob.

Mike



Thanks Mike. Not having the skill to hollow out tubing or having brass tube I used the insulation cover from Sta-kon wire connectors. The exhaust piping is made from solid solder

Darrell,

I use drill bits to hollow out pipes if I don't make new ones from copper/brass/aluminum tubing. I bought a set of 100+ bits years ago - Letter, numbered, fractional. Best set I've ever had for modeling as it inevitably will have the size I need. LOL, I only use them for modeling as they're not that great for anything else (poor steel compared to good set from the hardware store).

Looking nice, Rob. It's hard to tell from the photo, but your rear tired need to be on the outside of the lip on the wheels. Looks like they are on the inside.

Jim



Thanks Jim!

DOH!

Cheers Rob.

Nicely done, Rob. I like the "rubber" on the tanks, your engine looks great. Well done. Are you going to "chrome" the bands that go around the air cleaner?

Thanks guys!

I think I am just going to leave it as is, adding the cab was a pain because I removed all the snap together bits and filled the holes.

Cheers Rob.

Rob, that's gorgeous! Impressive looks! What can I say?! You should be punching the air with joy! (and kick me too for being so "lazy"!)

Cheers!

Hello all. I cannot seem to upload my photos into the GB gallery. What Am I doing wrong? When I try the result says that I do not have permission to upload photos. Please help before the end of the build.

Make sure you've logged in to that page/site. Even though you are logged on at Automodeler or Armorama, et cetera, you may not be logged on at Kitmaker Gallery.

The deadline is here.

Time to wrap it up, finish your builds, and get a couple pictures posted!

I do appreciate the participation. Yes indeed!

That ribbon looks great on my profile. Thanks for a great campaign. I may try another truck someday, but maybe not a metal one.
