Guys
Here's some pics of my Reefer body for the Heavy haulers campaign







once the glue has set i'll fill the gaps between the panels before giving it a coat of gloss white paint.
I'm going to experiment here with something I came across on an Aircraft forum somewhere, I'm going to attempt using the Tippex style correction tape to cover the gaps between panels.

Joining all the panels together was ok,it was when I went to build the actual body that the air turned a funny shade of blue . Every time I put a panel on and reached for the next one it would start to come apart,lol. But I got there in the end.

Looking good so far. This is going to be one big mother for sure. This is a 1/24 scale?Looking forward to seeing the chassis and wheels on it. Thanks for the update.
