Paul...........maybe at a later date, don`t have the necessary stuff to do it at the mo and money is tight
Steve.....that has crossed my mind to go with a dirty winter white
Done a little bit more on this today.........i have re-worked the back end as it was wrong by my references, nothing major , i`ve also done the 2 sloping receivers that allow the trailer to run up the vehicle......pics will explain more when i post up later
Ok fellas.......not much but it`s taken me a little while to get this part done
I removed the rear brace bar as it was to flimsy and needed something more substantial....also it had to have a section removed for when the trailer connects otherwise the king pin would foul the rear of the chassis, the 2 receivers were made by using some channel and chamffered to an angle on the edges....also there are 2 rear lights which sit in the back of the rail.........some filling here and there but overall i`m quite pleased with how this is going.
Next job will be to re-size the fuel tank as it is smaller than the cargo version and still needs to seat between the cab and first rear wheel, i will also scratch a tool chest for the other-side........then i gotta work out how to tackle the 5th wheel coupling
This pic shows the tarp canopy and just how much shorter the tractor unit is compared to the cargo truck
