Thanks guys!

The engine color is actually a Duplicolor rattle can of Detroit Diesel Alpine Green, which turned out to be a decent enough match for the typical Mercedes diesel paint job. Goes on a little thicker than I'd prefer, but is manageable with light coats.

...I suppose scratchbuilding a trophy truck could always be an option!

Perfect. Its the colour I've been looking for for my maxxpro/m1070/m911 engines!

One more sub-assembly complete. Everything will get slathered in mud once the last three groups are done!

Cab components are done now, minus the cage. I might just have this thing done this year haha...

I've never seen this kit before. What a great build!

Thanks guys! Highly recommend it if you can find it... by far the coolest of the Unimogs!

Nice kit, but make sure that the chassis is square. The hood closes onto the side fairings and on mine, it seems to pull the whole fairings forward, putting stress on the rear fender brackets.

Brandon H
Thanks for the heads up! I'm actually only using the frame and axles from this kit, but I'll pay extra attention when squaring up that chassis. Might get in touch with some of my machinist friends for that...

It's easy enough to do, with a set square, but some guys use Lego. Sounds stupid, but it gives us perfect right angles and can be adjusted to whatever you want. Just a thought brother.

I'm on for the ride!! You only have the engine and it's already masterfully done!!!

Chris Greathouse
What brand/color of paint do you use for the chrome on top?
30. June 2019, 23:45
Brandon H
Thanks Chris, glad you like it! The valve cover is actually already metal plated in this kit, although I've painted the bottom half to better match the real thing; that's just a Testor's silver/chrome that I use a lot of.

All the painted detail to the interior looks great! All those buttons and dials :D

Wow! Awesome result. I'll attempt to get some of that level detail in the rigs I am building. Thanks for the inspiration.
