Bozzer Ok, after being warned by a fellow Scalemate, I checked the axles for true and straightness. Mine were actually ok. Putting the chassis frame together was cumbersome, but with patience, I got it level and straight. A tip for you guys, build from the back to the front, then add the beaver tail later. More to follow soon.

Bob Hall Good too know ! Thanks !

Bill Newcomer I agree, build the frame from the back to the front.

Bozzer Glenn, I'm an ass! I would love to learn how to do that, but I need more physical evidence. I'm really trying buddy, but being on the other side of the pond, is a pain. I get what you are saying bro, but my visits are limited to twice a year. However, USA rocks!!!

Chris Greathouse Bozz, your truck is already looking sexy and cool. Love the shape of the fenders. and personally I like not worrying that I may high-center over speed bumps :D lol
29. March at 04:11:40
Bozzer Lol, I was discussing lowering it, with a buddy of mine. Maybe the next one, will get some lowering treatment? I really like those front fenders. I might try to make one. I love getting creative.

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.

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.

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 at 09:58:09
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.
7. March at 10:22:42
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?
7. March at 10:38:07
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
