Bozzer @Mark, thanks buddy.
21. March, 11:34
Bozzer @Bill. Danny and I have the same T900. Maybe a future group build? That chrome tanker takes some work mate. Once you build your can, then move on to the chassis. You need to get your can perfect first. Then slowly build your chassis, but don't add the outriggers. I taped my dry chassis to the can, then added the ribs, but in hindsight, I should've just attached it with glue, then built it up. The worst thing is the fingerprints! Dude, they drive you insane! I'm gonna clear coat mine.
21. March, 11:43
Bill Newcomer I have heard that about the finger prints. I'll try to remember to wear gloves when I open the box and handle it.
21. March, 16:24
Danny Meer Sounds great Bozzer, I could use the Beall trailer for behind mine :) But After this groupbuild wich will still take me some time to finish...
I have 2 others I want to build first and still have to finish the Unimog lol

Bozzer I have a new tanker coming, but I want that Heavy Duty Tanker, that I saw in the states. That's a damn beast! How's your build coming along Danny? Any new updates?

Danny Meer My hobbyroom temp and humidity finally good for airbrushing so start with that tomorrow :)
Will do the chassis and engine tomorrow. atm started with painting inside cab
26. March, 14:55
Bozzer I'll check out your pictures bro. I'm screwed until my paint comes now.

Bozzer Ok Tim buddy, this is for you! #13 & #15 are what happened when I screwed up mixing the paint. I was short on the red. #14 is the actual colour of the movie truck, but I couldn't find a close match.
13. February, 02:19
Tim Heimer Dude, too cool! Green engine? What are you going to do about the battery box on the other side? I'm going to try to make the marker lights for above the headlights from a part on the Revell Kenworth kit. If it works out good would you want a pair for this truck?
13. February, 02:22
Tim Heimer Posted a righthand side pic of snowman in Movin on for you. Just in case.
13. February, 02:26
Bozzer I plan to scratchbuild the other side. Luckily, it's the same as the drivers side. I might also have the marker lights in my bits box. That I need to check.
13. February, 02:31
Bozzer #35 shows the dash. I've now added the CB and it's been gloss coated. I have to send off for the decals now, so the build has come to a halt. It's cool though, because it frees up a little bench time, for the group build.
13. February, 02:34
Tim Heimer Looking good!! Can't wait to see it completed!

Tim Heimer Impressive! How did you do the top marker lights on the roof? Future project of lighting a car carrier and truck. Any pics of the wiring in the cab?
11. February, 18:26
Bozzer @tim. I used 3mm LED's. I drilled two holes in the chrome part, then fed the legs through. Remove any chrome that the legs come in contact with, or you'll get a dead short. Remove LEDs, glue chrome part to cab, allow to dry, then drill the holes through the roof. Once you've done all 5, solder wires to them and run wires down the back of the cab or the A pillars. It sounds a lot of work, but worth it.
12. February, 20:54
Tim Heimer If you saw the 1/350 Enterprise I did, than you'd know this would be a cake walk. 3mm leds? Hmmm thanks! I guess that would be easier than fiber optics!
12. February, 21:16
Bozzer Fibre is a bit hard in areas like that. You'd have to get some tight bends. SMDs are better and you can get them prewired, so that makes things easier. Try to avoid the flashing one's though. The timers are all different, so they don't all flash at the same time. They also backfired, so any other light on the same circuit also flashes.

12. February, 22:46
Bozzer Hey monkey mate. The truck is done, but the trailer is still a WIP. This is the Italeri American Superliner kit. I need to dust her off after the group build and hook her up to her trailer. Trailer pictures will be coming up in the next few weeks. I have a fair bit of building going on at the moment. I think I've got about 6 projects in various stages? Two are awaiting decals, that I've not ordered yet. Need to pull my finger out!

Martin Oostrom Italeri, renowned for their extensive colour instructions. NOT
5. February, 20:15
Bozzer Ok fellas, added a few more pictures. It's going together well, but there's a heads up. The cab roof was slightly warped at the front. I had to glue the back and sides, then a day later, I glued the front and clamped it with tiny crocodile clips, until dry. The hood has vents on the side. Under these are decals, that imitate grills. I decided to drill 8mm holes and put mesh inside the hood. I think it looks better. While doing this, I somehow managed to get a black mark on the hood, then I wet sanded it off and repainted it. Bloody sod's law, the paint orange peeled! So I flattened it down, after allowing it a couple of days to dry, then shot a thin layer of paint over it again. I've just managed to clear coat it tonight, hence no pictures of the full truck as yet. Decals are coming soon, then I can finish the chrome bits and get her done. Hopefully, by the end of weekend.
6. February, 21:07
Danny Meer Really looks great already, can't wait to start mine...but that's the problem, so many cool kits and not sure wich to do first :P My Unimog still not finished and aussie truck comming up soon. after that 1 I want to do the VW steampunk van and after that 1 the Turnpiker Pete...
7. February, 13:22
Bozzer Danny, I love that Turnpiker! Just picked up the Italeri Freightliner 120 Special. I also have another group build to do, for a FB group I'm in. No pressure here then, lol
7. February, 16:15
Nathan Dempsey Great work so far Bozzer. I have to say that frame looks awfully familiar...
7. February, 16:43
Danny Meer 2 groupbuilds at same time? :D
7. February, 17:20
Bozzer Lol Danny, yes! The other one is a break from the norm. It's a kitbash, scratchbuild truck dragster, from anything you want to use. A kinda Go Crazy and see what happens, type build? Just something to relax and enjoy being different.
8. February, 12:36
Bozzer @nathan. It's the Italeri Western Star chassis buddy. And just when I could see the finish line, the problems crop up! Trying to work out a fix, so I'll get back to you guys with that. Luckily, I've managed to save everything so far. Investigation work is currently ongoing, but I have taken pictures. Update to follow.

20. January, 04:40
Bozzer So, a little sub building has gone on. I find this way easier than painting every single piece. Because I airbrush, it makes things easier, to get paint where I want it. It's nit everyone's cup of tea, but it works for me.

Danny Meer @Bozzer, seen this 3d printed trailer on FB, there is a page called Rubber Duck Truck.
Problem for me is the costs for sending it to the Netherlands and hoping it would arrive in 1 piece lol

There is also a funeral with some1 on a trailer behind a Rubber Duck truck, that was he's last wish.

Bozzer Ok, after being warned by a fellow Scalemate, I checked the axles for true and straightness. Mine were actually ok.

Bozzer I'm going to be getting this project moving again over the next few days. Now that the man cave is built and things are in, I'm just testing out the painting and temperature. I still have to make my custom spray booth, but I'm a little concerned about the temperature at the moment. Tests are ongoing, as i type. Unfortunately, the WiFi was something I didn't factor in, so I'm also on the lookout for some kind of booster. Keep watching.
29. September 2019, 09:15
Bill Newcomer Bozzer, get a "wireline" Wifi extender. A couple of boxes that plug into outlets and cable to you router, then use the AC wires in the house to extend the data link to the farthest reaches of the house. Layout like this: Modem -> Fast router with Wifi -> cat 5 or 6 to wireline adapter -> house wiring -> 2nd wireline adapter -> cat 5 or 6 -> any old working Wifi router -> Wfi devices at other end of the house.

Bozzer Bill, this is the same kit you have. To be fair, it's a bit of a slug. Definitely a challenge buddy. It's a rebox of very old tooling. As I know how you are, watch out for several issues. The cab to sleeper mating, isn't the best, plenty of delicate work needed. The rear axles are out. Alignment problems again. Also, check the cab for twists. The chassis needed a bit of work too. Then just when you think you are all done and your paint job is amazing, the chrome grab handles screw it up! Them mirrors take some patience too! In my opinion, this is the most testing of AMT kits. Chris has done a version of this, if you want to check that out too bud.
29. September 2019, 09:25
Munkyslut I'm watching, cab-over tractor units are so much nicer than long hoods.
I love the box art on theses older kits, they just look so fkin cool!!!
29. September 2019, 09:58
Bill Newcomer Bozzer thanks for the warning. Usually I deflash, paint then fit. With all that I have read, I am deflashing, TEST FITTING then painting.

Treehugger Charming. Seems like there is something missing though in the middle, presumably the fuel tanks goes to the lower center section.

Bozzer Sorry buddy, yes there will be. This is a WIP. At the moment, I'm stalled on this. I had a massive reaction with the clear coat. It ate the paint on the cab roof and both doors. Currently they are stripped and ready to be washed, dried and painted. Strange how it was just on those parts and not the rest of the paint?

Bozzer Sorry guys, I've been a while on this one. Well work and life kinda got in the way, not to mention a massive reaction with the clear I used! So, just a bit of an update and you will see the finished project over the next couple of days. Enjoy mates
