Hi
Thought I’d share my progress (now there’s actually been some) on my frankentruck build.

The idea was to have a cheap vehicle to act as a track cleaner (run it around before using the track with mx3 loaded braids) but when it arrived I didn’t like the livery so set about melting the old paint and livery off with nail varnish remover.


It started like this

With paint off like this

So far I’ve finally managed to get some time off from being a part time, full time dad and it now looks like this

Fully user coated and ready for the top coats of white for the cab and electric-ish blue for the rest. Engine section will hopefully have some components painted in black, red and chrome.

I ‘borrowed’ the can interior from an old scale mode I (no other word for it) stole from work a few years ago.

Holes on the can roof are for the quite nifty light bar I got from a supplier in the states.

Hopefully the next few days will see the top coats applied and build complete
