2022!!  I hope everyone has had a great time so far!!

I managed to get some work done on the project this holiday.  Mostly because we got snowed in for a few days. 

View out the model room window.

Now that I have the outside shell for the drivers cab, it's off to the launch cab.

I'll be back..........

Hey All,

This is getting fun now.  The geometry of the cab area is a bit more than I thought it was.  (Wacky Russians).

Everything seems to be slanted a bit and one of the windows is twisted.  I'll get it all sorted.

This is the engine cover air vents........

Now that the cabs are roughed out, it's time to finish and detail.  This may take a bit of time.

See you next time All............

That's it.  Thanks everyone.

Hey Guys,

 Still working on the cab interior.  I have only a few more items to be built and installed befor the cab is finished.

I built up various small fittings for this space.  This is the gauge panel for the dash....

and some wiring under.......the dashboard is simple paper printout of some dials, glued into place.

HEY ALL,

 This was a good build week.  Altho it may not look like it, much has been done.  The cab is just about finished, but with a bit to go.

I finished the interior of the cab........

The outside wall has also been worked on, and is in place...........

It looks like it will fit into place, OK

Always test fitting........

Still a ways to go, but it looks good so far.  I have started considering how the next part of the build will interact with the cabs, but actually building anything for the next section is a long ways off yet.

I have the next cab already cut and shaped so the build for the other cab should be a lot quicker. 

I have been working on a OOB kit with not much improvements, but it still takes time from this build.  Altho a nice change of pace feels good sometimes.

Until next time, stay tuned.
