Glen,

The Model T is very nicely done. Your modeling is like an assembly line.

Mike

That T looks good, Glen.

Thanks for introducing us to these models.

Thanks everyone. I just finished most of the painting of the closed cab truck




I'm going with basic black on this one, but weathered. On the parts that would be metal (fenders, chassis, hood) I first airbrushed in Model master Rust, followed by flat black. On the parts that would be wood, like the cab and box, I painted them in a gray primer, then also painted them in black.



Then I took my Fiberglass eraser brush and carefully scratched the black away, letting the under-color show through. This shows some wood grain and a worn paint look.








I also did this with the metal parts, showing rust coming through the paint.

I have the four walls of the cab assembled and ready to be put together.



I added the window glass (also laser cut). I still have to add the steering wheel to the front wall.

Thanks Bob.
I've been a bit distracted over the past week due to other projects and a trip to Calgary. I have found some time to continue with the closed-cab truck



I assembled the cab/truck bed and glued it to the fenders. After I glued the roof onto the cab a heard a rattling and discovered that the steering wheel had become unglued. I can't re-open the cab so I'll just have to live with it. n the other hand the interior is so small, you can't even see it.




I didn't paint the inside of the truck be yet, except for he gray primer. I'll be working on weathering that up a bit later.

Thatís going to be a spiffy model when youíre finished. The weatherbeaten appearance is well done.

Thank you.
I finished up the second truck last night.




This truck pretty much went together like the first. Everything fit together well. I gave the brass radiator an A&I wash to tone it down a bit and left the canvas roof a bit more tattered.
