Nice build Silverfox. Seems everyone has one of these to do. I'm going to start mine when the Road Boss is done. Is that the correct engine colour for this? I've seen some pics of restored ones but don't know about the colours?

Not sure if colours are correct , instructions say to do a lot of engine and trans parts silver , so I just went with some Testors  metallisers . Thanks for the nice comments guys .

A really handsome model. Love the colors. Is that matte paint or just the way you lit the photography. Either way, it works!

Your photography of your models is outstanding!...
What camera are you using?.. and how do you get such
crisp, clear photos of your models?...
Beautiful work both with the building and the photos.

I just use a Nikon Coolpix camera , mainly set on macro , white cardboard background , with an overhead light .It is all very hit and miss with me . Allan used to do my photos and he did an excellent job , but I am now trying it myself under his guidance . Thanks for the nice comments .

Good job.

It always amazes me when I see cars & trucks with chain drive.  Such a bad solution for so many reasons.
