Changed the name in Photo Bucket, so of course you can't see the first couple of shots of the kit boxes. ( Can't find the EDIT button! ) So, Camper and directions.
The Lindberg kit has lots of flash to clean up. Guess there was Old Mold :
So, lots of clean up to do.
Yeh, most of it's pretty thin and fairly easy to clean up. Thanks to a great tip about amainhobbies.com , was able to pick up some awesome new meats for these truck tires. They are perfect for 1:25 Big Truck tires!
More body work and clean up As you probably noticed on the DODGE emblem, my drill bit slipped off the mark and the hole was way out of line with the rest. No biggie, just scribled a couple lines with a pencil and a straight edge, then re-drilled. Took a stick of small diameter rod, stuck it into the off center hole and put a drop of plastic welder cement on the back. Will trim it off and sand, then you will never know I goofed. :
Also drilled out the Cab 700 badges first, then shaved with a #11 and sanded.
Removed the front grille screens with the back of the #11,filed and sanded.
After filling sink holes with White Putty fitted allot of the chassis pieces.
The rear tires should come soon. Then I can adjust the ride height. I'm thinkin the stock 361 V 8 isn't going to quite get it, so may need to up the horse power some. The Blower assembly is in the CLOROX being de-chromed.
Also received my first order from DWC! They're in the Bleach white soaking as we speak. I'm excited about trying them out!
Thanks Scott! After soaking the blower in Clorox, saw a bunch of clean up I missed.
Cleaned up the fuel cells, drilled out the badges and mirror mount holes on the doors and mounted the door hinges. Should have just made my own hinges. They fit poorly.
Tires came from A Main Hobbies. Now I'll be able to check the ride height for the Camper box.
After soaking Jared in the Bleach White, washing and cleaning him all up, was implressed with how little flash and seam lines there were. Will have a shot of him later.
