Looking good, and big! Inspiring stuff. Are the cylinders and pistons a bit on the small side?

Sensational work Jason. I agree with Jamie that the cylinders look a bit on the thin side but if that was ever to cause a problem I'm sure you could easily make larger ones.

Patience and dedication are definitely a big part of the model building talent... hats off to you sir!

Ok the actual stick cylinders are done and installed. The first ones were tests and people did not like the scale of them.





I got the frame painted yesterday so a lot of final installs were done of the larger completed pieces.





Finally the 2 models side by side




Getting closer can not wait to dirty this up

She's looking good! I'm glad that you weathered it, I personally think it makes a model look much better. I also see that Bob is giving it a test run lol Teeth

CAT- best in the woods

Hi Jason

I am nearly speechless about this model !!!

For me it`s one of the best scratch - built model I have ever seen !!!!!

What`s your next model in 1:24 ?? A dump truck for the 6020B ??????



Best regards

Manfred
