The tires will dry rot before you get to run it! [emoji2957]

HA! That could happen. Just means I have an excuse to get new tires. "thumbsup"

Almost there!

Got the interior pretty much done, painted the rig up and reassembled everything. Decided to go with CAT yellow and I think it came out pretty well.

I need to add some more scale accessories and lay down the traction strips to the bed deck so rigs don't just slide off the slick ABS surface. I'm thinking I'll build some storage boxes that mount to the frame between the second and third axles.

Got some pics below. Dropped my trx4 on the bed for a size comparison. Also have a pic of my original cardboard mockup of that cab compared to the finished product. Not too bad.

Raining like crazy today so I'll have to wait for a better day to get it outside.

Made a couple changes. Added a sound module and changed up the tires/wheels.

The sound module works reasonably well but I think I have the volume set too low.

I like the new tires and wheels much better. Plus they are slightly large and I think the proportions are better.

Took a short video in the basement and a couple pics.

Thanks. It has been a long journey but I do like how it came out. I started working on storage boxes that will ride between the 2nd and 3rd axles. Once I add those I have just a couple accessories and then I'll call it done.

Absolutely love it! Creative fabwork and the end result looks great! New wheels and tires make the rig imo.

Thanks. I agree the wheel & tire change did wonders for the overall look.

I was able to build the storage boxes on both sides. They do open and are held closed with magnets.



I realized today I never tested out the full bed and winch combo to see if it could drag and load a rig. Decided to experiment with my fairly heavy twin hammers trailer rig. Everything worked as it should.
