Another Model Build

For those who are interested...........I haven't done one of these in a while and I thought that there is no better time than the present. Got the main body cut and glued together today, as well as the fenders and top deck. Some pieces are just dry fit for now and will remain so until their mating pieces are completed. Thanks for looking in guys. More to come next weekend.

Always great to see another of your projects in process! Any clues as to the final build? Thanks for sharing, and be safe.

I'm going to guess a fire truck.

I hate signatures.

Well, when you're good you're good. Mort guessed it right away. A firetruck it is. Stay tuned. There will be more to come tomorrow.

Well today was a good day in the shop. A solid 7 1/2 hours spent on the build and I enjoyed every minute of it. I was able to get the rear bumper made and installed, the rear light posts and supports, the upper deck rails, the ladder supports, the rear doors, the rear axels and the rear fenders glued into place. We are only at 14 1/2 hours on the build so far but we are far from finished. I have plans tomorrow, but I am not working Monday so sounds like another day in the shop working on the build to me. Stay tuned folks.

Spent another 7 1/2 hours in the shop today working on the build. Got a couple of ladders made as well as the engine block, the rails for that block and 2 pump panels. I'm always amazed at how long it takes to make these pieces but I had a good day in the shop none the less.
