I've never seen a kit of this type, it's quite interesting though. Your chassis and axle are looking great.

Cheers Rob

thanks

A&N is a small company that only make trucks in limited runs

i havent heard about hem untill a modeller pointed me to that direction

so far the fit is good and the resin casting exelent minor clean up to do

Those fuel tanks are PERFECT !!  I recall the old Ford Louisville 9000 series had a fuel tank similar to those with the integral step, and they were ok for getting in, but for our snow plows, getting out could be a test when they got full of snow and got slippery, more than one guy found himself sitting flat on his ass on the highway wondering how he got there............. :rolleyes:

Mark, the fuel tanks we had on our trucks be it the  old school ones  or the new ones are usually black, the fuels caps were brass and our battery boxes on our Western Stars, were the same as you have made for your truck, .... the the case was black with the 'diamond plate ' part,  aluminum.....

thanks for the info

My plan whas to go for stainless steel tanks,chrome steps and the batery box same color as the chassis with chrome steps

but the fun part on building a ruck is that you can build it like you whant

not 1 truck is the same

That will look cool, our trucks were very 'utilitarian', and all work trucks, nothing fancy, an owner operator is the guy who gets the cool stuff.... and GazzS is correct, your PE work is  fabulous !
