Trumpeter SA-2 Guideline missile/transporter

One of the oldest kits on my shelf; I built this a decade ago(!) and really enjoyed it.

What a beast Mike.!!
The image created here is one of much use, and the sun has done it's fair share of beating the paint and equipment about as well.
Most convincing. :)

MIke, you do a very very great job! I love it! I have only one thing to think about it: normally, fifth wheels have only grease on top. Color you can not recognize because, as the heavy load and the friction removes everything. (for example: https://www.google.de/search?q=sattelkupplung+ru%C3%9Fland&client=safari&rls=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=rhNsVcv7EsOVsgGW24HoAw&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAg&biw=1574&bih=973# ) 👍

@Jonns. Thanks, that's very useful info and reference, I'll bear that in mind on my next truck build.

couple more photos would be nice, a close up of the engine and a close up of the drivers cabin, seeing as you have the door open 🙂
