Lads, it appeared right in front of my eyes! £60 buy it now, on eBay. Still sealed inside! I actually paused and double checked! Showed it to my buddy and he asked me what I was waiting for? Needless to say, it's mine now. I only have two holy grail kits left, then I'm a happy bunny.
14. December 2020, 16:29
Nigel Chapman
That's a great bargain. What are the other two kits ?
14. December 2020, 17:40
Bozzer
Lol, now that my friend, would be telling! But definitely, one is extremely rare, and the other, is just rediculously expensive. They're both trucks, so that should make things easier for you ;)

I know that feeling mate! Work is keeping me busy 6/7 days. By the time I get home, I'm barely in the mood for coffee. Currently working on a new build project, for 2 MRI scanners. The first arrives from Germany, in a month. It's gonna be tight mate.

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.

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?

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 2020, 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.

Thanks Bill. I got this kit, because of the sleeper. I'm gonna do a build of a friend's W900, with a very similar sleeper. When it's done, then I've just got to get it from England to Canada. I'm not sure how good my miracles are, but I'll try.

Well said Peter!

17. April 2020, 22:43

I'm glad to be of help lads. Sharing information is important, so that we can all move forward, to the next level of insanity. Hopefully, this build will encourage others to get out a kit and start building, keeping the hobby alive? I'm also thankful for the generous timescale that this build has. It just proves that you don't have to rush things, to be a modeller. Munky mate, you missed out on the fun this time, but maybe next one? I'd certainly do another group build with these great bunch of guys. JD, sorry mate, I keep forgetting to give you a heads up! I'll try to remember in future buddy.

I'll bring it back though. Them bloody tank steps are shite! You need a masters degree in physics, to sort them out. I nearly tossed them out of the cave door. Back on track now though.

Thanks Munky mate. I still have to get the LED light for the top, but that's at work, so it's gonna have to wait. I did a video, but it's too big to load on here. I might improve on the running gear, under the turntable, but for now, we're running on high octane adrenaline! Total cost of this? Time. All wood was repurposed, so was the perspex and the fans. The rear chamber is from a ceiling vent, from a grid ceiling in an office. It runs on a 12v 5A power supply, that I had laying around. Very shortly, I'm gonna shoot some paint and try it out. Oh, the filter wool came from eBay. It was sent to me free, by a good mate of mine, down in Reigate, London. If anyone wants to copy the idea, feel free. We're all in this together. Model on chaps!

Thanks lads. Well I'm definitely happy! As a test, I did a few bits and bobs, then I dug out an old van shell. It was a kit that had been started and I think the previous owner used a catapult, to put the glue on? I'll venture out to the cave and get some pictures shortly. An Englishman needs a cup of tea first, before he goes to battle ;)
6. April 2020, 09:08
Bozzer
Well, I had a play today. My first donor was the black van. It's been kicking around here for a while, so basically I just shot it with some black paint, for the test. As you can see, the filter has done it's job well. Then I shot some pieces of my current builds, with Humbrol satin black. For some reason, this is one of my favourite colours. It laid down perfect! I'm a very happy camper. Job done, test a complete success! Now onwards with my builds!
7. April 2020, 03:11
Bozzer
@ John. I agree with you mate. I'm toying with the idea of a new improved version of the rollers, only featuring sealed bearings and slightly wider. I can't get out for supplies yet, so that's gonna be on hold for now. It has been on my mind though buddy and yes, I shall be whizzing my router around that bolt, for sure! Great minds buddy ;)

Ok, this is the bare basics of the booth. It's 600 x 600mm square base (2' x 2') and slightly less in height. It's going to be extracted by two PC fans, through a chamber and out into the fresh air. To prevent any paint particles, clogging up the fans, and to prevent painting the surrounding neighborhood, a filter is going in, where the huge square is. At the top, will be perspex, clear. This is to allow light in, which will be a 600 x 600mm LED panel. Fingers crossed, it's all going to work!

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 2020, 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 2020, 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 2020, 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.

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.

Two are awaiting decals, that I've not ordered yet. Need to pull my finger out!

Italeri, renowned for their extensive colour instructions. NOT
5. February 2020, 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.

@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.
