Glen,

You're doing such a fine job with this, get ready to gas her up soon.

Thanks everyone. I finished up the trailer this evening






I sort of guessed at the length of the trailer pole. I looked as a few prototype photos and they didn't seem that long. I suspect that since it is an off-road truck that would be making tight corners that it would be a bit shorter.







And with the trailer in the stowed position. Now I take it apart and spray gray primer.

Thanks Bob. My airbrush parts finally came so I was able to both primer and paint the parts this weekend.



Most of these trucks were painted yellow with a green hood but the modeller that I'm building this for has an overall green paint scheme for his logging company. I used a Chromium Oxide green from Golden fluid acrylics.

Glen,

What did you use as a primer, and did you do anything special to prep the truck before applying the primer? Thanks,

Thanks guys

Jerry, I used krylon paver gray as a primer, it's a nice light gray color and I washed all the resin castings in a wax and grease remover to prepare them.

Glen,

Thank you. I'll have to pick some up and give it a try. It certainly worked well for you.

Glen, for some reason I missed this fine project. That's some very impressive work you've done. That kit isn't for the average modeler.

Glen,

My first thought was that you used a green Chromium Oxide primer (like in the autobody business), but as a final coat, it is perfect. Super choice!

Thanks everyone. I wasn't sold on the green at first (it wasn't my choice) but it looks right.

I'm nearing completion of the truck.




I hand painted the tires and applied an A&I wash to the rims.




I have almost completed assembly. I added window glass using a liquid glassmaker and then assembled the rest. The black posts are the rearview mirror posts. I'll add the mirrors after I've added the wheels due to their fragile nature.



you can also see in the background that I finished off the trailer.
