A bit more progress to show.
I've done some work on the cab with rust on the roof and my first attempt at hand drawn flames. :)
I looked for suitable decals for the flames but nothing caught my eye so I decided draw my own. I made a paper template then held it against the hood and traced around the shapes. Not 21st Century cutting edge technique but it worked. Then I used a liquid masking fluid before spraying the various colours. The final touch was outlining the flames with a black marker pen. I would have preferred a thinner line but I'm happy with the result so far. ;)

Of course, the cab still needs to be weathered and the small blemishes you can see will have to be touched up before I finish.
Cheers and thanks for looking.

I've made some progress on the cabin and I'll add more "junk" in there as I go. I've given the floors some dust and grime already, together with the obligatory old magazines. :lol:

Here you can see the scratch built fuel tank. The steel finish looks better in real time.

There is still a lot more to do but I'm comfortable with where it's at so far.
Back to the bench for me. :)

Just a small update from me to prove I'm still working on this build. I've been experimenting with making broken glass.
