California Hauler.

Post by checkmate on Wed 11 Mar 2015, 2:00 am

I've kicked off building one of these, I always wanted one of the original issues but never seemed to win one when they popped up on ebay and was stoked when they reissued this kit even if it's missing the green windows. I'm planning on building it basically standard out of box with maybe a few little mods.

The chassis went together really well, nice and square after I removed all the mould lines. I painted it Duplicolour Magma red. I started assembling the engine and the diffs, making slow progress. I managed to get the cab and bonnet painted in Duplicolour Imperial blue.

It's been going together well just a little slow with other projects on the go as well.

Sorry about the iphone quality pics, I'll get some better shots over the next few days.

I knew it would take a while but it's great to see you've discovered the therapeutic qualities of building trucks Robbie! Nothing better surely. I'll come and pick up the van and bike and bring them home so I can give them an occasional 'run' to keep the spiders out. The Pete is looking the goods.

Done a bit but I've started putting a Mack together for the Wagga show. Graham said they're having some Mack thing and I had to build one for it.
