Thanks Carl and Mike.

I finished off assembly this morning. Last night I worked on getting the wheels on.

I started with one front wheel as a guide, then added the second front to level the truck side to side. to do this I enlarged the mounting holes on the wheels and sanded the mounting pin thinner so I could move them up and down as I needed. I then added a single rear wheel that would level the truck fore and aft. One of the rear axles was way out so I almost had to put the mounting pin into the tires to keep the truck level. This isn't going to be a contest model so I was more concerned with it sitting straight and level.

After that I added the mirrors and the front wheel mud guards and it was finished.

This afternoon I'll do some basic weathering and call it finished.

I sprayed a bit of Polly-s dirt over the model and I'd call it finished

and for comparison sake, her it is beside a con-cor logging truck (on road)

It's a beast compared to the Con-Cor.

You do nice work. I can send you about fifty HO truck kits to build and paint, weather, etc. Just let me know when you want them.

Thanks everyone. Rich, I've got a number of truck and car kits on the docket already. I just started a Jordan 1929 tank truck that I'm converting to a tow truck for my gas station scene.
