Thanks guys!
Dave: Good luck! The kit is straight forward - just be careful with instructions - there is so many parts, you easily forgot or swap some...
Jeff: Isnt it??!! Yeah!! Really looking forward to show them both together...

Today without pics - the last axle almost in place (only assembly after some drying time will be done) - to be continued next year!

Happy New Year to you all!

Would this help ?


I guess it's the tubing you can see on the inner side of the chassis frame on the left, and you can also discern it on the right as well...

Pavel

I've just found out that the picture in my last post (with the Silver State Specialties watermark ) has been in fact taken from Joe Wallace's Webshots album. So let's give back to Joe the pics that are Joe's :

Maybe you'll find other useful pics there ?

Works on cabin! First I prepared the dashboard - even the wiring under it - both doors will be open, so it was neccessary. Decals works perfect with Gunze liquids...:



The seat harness have to be added, the rear seat will be full of equipment, so there are no locks neccessary - I made only one:


The sidewall harness:

...will be visible hardly:


This is approx layout (very simplified) of how cabin seats will be covered (will be even much more... )

So before I can FILL the cabin, I finnished the wheels and started to work on jacks:


I almost forgot to show one of last equipments in cabin - oxygen filters...:


And here is the beast!


Thanks for looking!

Just check out Accurate Armour, Pro Art, Real Models, D-toys or Blast Models ranges for instance : you'll find soda cans, water bottles, coolers, MREs, snacks...

Keep on the good work !
