A bit more scratching amongst other things will see it done

That's gorgeous.  I remember builing that same tractor kit.
I should have sprung for photoetch for around the exhaust.

The fit of the roof on mine was so nice, I could leave it loose to be able to see the interior.

Hello!

That Ken is lookin' really good! I just love that colour scheme. Like the Capn' said, some PE (exhaust shrouds, radiator grille) could really add to it!

Thanks for sharing and have a nice day

Thanks gents

Probably a little late for the grille but the jury's not out on stack guards yet

One of my other hobbies

It occurred to me that I failed to post finished pics of this. Decided to not do the stack guards as many of these that were on the road did not have them

The truck was a reasonable and well engineered kit; the trailer not so much

Nicely done big rig and box. Just out of curiosity, is that a Chesty Puller holster rig in the quad pic? Been thinking about one for the scoped Redhawk.

Mopar thanks this kit gives you a Cummins NTC for a mill; don't know if there are any aftermarket outfits that do Cat engines

Thank you John

Goldhammer thanks also, and the holster was made by Clark Fork Leather here in Montanta for a Glock 20 or 40. Since I acquired it the business has been sold and is now Paradise Valley Leather. I don't think they make one for a scoped revolver, but I do know that Triple K makes one that looks rugged and well made. Try oldtradingpost.com and look for Up front big thunder center chest scoped handgun shoulder holster, may be just what ya need

Mark

Looked close to what Simply Rugged makes and was curious as to how you liked it.  Finally found my leather company, not looking any further.  Thanks though

No worries man

I do like this style very much as opposed to a waist holster rubbing my hips raw or trying to pull my drawers down with a heavy pistol or revolver. When on the chest I hardly know it's there, very nice when on a quad riding over rought ground

Mark
