Well we have progress! The body and chassis went to the paint shop for a primer coating, and drying for the color paint to be sprayed on once dry. That’s it for today’s efforts.

This morning I spray painted the trailer body, and chassis, with Model Master Enamel color Italian Red, No. 2919. Now it’s just the wait game of drying.

Below picture shows the Beef Cattle mounted and glued onto a sheet of black styrene, which will be sandwiched between the trailer body and the chassis, all three parts will be held in place, and together, with the screw at the bottom center. Looking through the slats show enough of the cattle to see that there is a loaded trailer, but not enough for the need of over detailing the interior.

Where I have a ranch/cattle pen on the L&R, with a RV Ranch sign, and trucks with the RV Ranch logo, I’m going to make-up a decal for the front of the trailer nose and doors of the cab. The Logo will be the one pictured last below.

Sure a lot of meat on the bones here, nicely engineered and executed. I got hung up watching paint dry a couple posts up the line and almost forget to keep mooooovin’ along.

Looks like snow across Minnesota, WISCONSIN, and Michigan. WISCONSIN is in CAPS, because everyone I know from WISCONSIN says it like that.
