I was able to get some painting on the trailer underside and on the inside. I used the iron powder on the bottom and steel powder on the inside wheel block outs.  The wood is a pattern that I found on eBay a couple years ago. I used Elmers glue to hold it down.

Dan: Man that truck looks out of sight!!!! Congratulations on your win at the show with it as well. I can post it up front if you want or hold off until you've got your trailer finished to post a pic with tractor and trailer if you want. Let me know buddy. Speaking of which , that is alot of work that you are putting into that trailer. Wow!!!!!

Eric: Good to see you back in here. Sorry to hear about your misfortune with the Camaro. Have you tried posting a search for the missing part? Model Car Magazine forum has been a HUGE help to me in locating missing parts. I like what your doing with the Dodge and that is one wild shade of green bubba!!!

Some really great work going on by everybody! 

Crown - isn't that the Christene car?! (I may be wrong...) 

Finished up on another model, so little progress. Did get the red on, pic below. Some of those little dips can't be smoothed out - and some are only visible when enlarged on the photo's! Nothing cleaned up yet, just shot, dried and snapped, so some polish may help. 2nd layer of red, so hoping that it's the final layer. I have a hectic work week ahead, so don't expect too much from my sde during next week! 

Also decided what I'll do next in parallel - it will be the 20th scal Ferrari 312T3 with transparent cowl. Will obviously be the Gilles Villeneuve version! But presuming I'll only start on that next weekend.

The promised pic:

Mustang, it's good old TS49 - designed originally to match the bright red of the Ferrari F1's as they ran it between 97 and early 2007.

Crown looking forward to what you do with the 57 Chevy. 

Seabe nice looking red. 

I've been working on the out side trailer prints for the decals. I'm close to what was on the truck and I think it's going to be what I end up using. I still need to make the othe side and front and back. I used the steel powder for the ceiling and where the exposed areas are on the inside. The plywood sheets will be cut and trimmed when I'm ready to glue them in. Going to wait until I have the out side painted. I will be working on the doors next before I start painting the out side. The out side decals have been my biggest challenge so far on this build. Here's a mock up of what the inside is shaping up to look like.

After a couple try's I've got my decal file to print out the correct size that I'm looking for. Also painted the white and blue now is just to print the decal paper and apply them.

Finally finished sizing decals so they are the right size and every thing lines up too. Started printing on the decal film I'm trying a different brand of decal film so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it work out. Here's what the paper samples look like all lined up.

So far the first decals are coming along with out to much problems I've got 2 of them that I have to reprint because it looks like the decal film was to thin is a couple places. Here's the finished decals for the cab. I have to wait for the ink to dry on the rest of the decals before in can apply them.

Ok I'm getting closer I've placed the decals on one side and just had to do a trial set up to see how it's all coming together. I'm going to have to work on the edges of the decal by the doors it's rolling up on me.

Thanks Pawel, the hardest part was getting them the right size using MS Word to cteat them. I'm sure there is better software to use but that's all I had to use. But being able to create what I wanted was nice.

Hello!

Well for designing decals the best software is CorelDRAW!. Now the newest version costs a small fortune, but getting an older version like 9.0 is a viable options - I run one on my Windows 7 computer. If you stay with Word it's good to turn the rulers (or how does Word call 'em) on and while formatting the size of an object typing the measurements in directly - that works quite good in Word. In my previous work we didn't have any dedicated graphics software and still I was able to make front panel designs for simple electronic devices with Word - with all the holes fitting the hardware!

Once again, good luck and have a nice day

Today I added the front and back decals and I also did some wood working on the inside of the trailer. I used printed paper for the wood.

Mopar - that is a super job! Decals... just the entire build is excellent - great to folow!

I have a small lupdate on the 312T3 engin. Added some of the ignition/electronic detail - with the wires obviously stil not placed. Next up will be start of the transmission.

No progress on the Nissan. I have lost a friend and mentor recently, the guy that taught me what I know about 43rd and made me fall in love with the scale. I simply could not yet touch the kit in that scale again.

So, the engin update: (Sorry about lack of quality on the pic)
