Wow! Wish I could do that.
Thanks. Wasn't too hard, you can buy ready made boxes. I found an article online and followed his instructions.

Hi, progress coming along, a little slow. Working on front suspension. Making 'Pacific'spring hangers, will make molds so I can cast more later. Glued up springs, 17 layers of .04mm X4mm styrene, cut to match real springs. Glued up the frame,use a cork board to for jig, Use pins to hold in place on copy of drawing, glued one side at time, cross members to frame rails. Cab floor is made and used to true up cab mounts when glued to frame. Cut rubber cushions between mounts and floor from bicycle inner tube.Thanks Doug.

Hi Thanks, the springs have been a bit of bear. Took 2 attempts to get them to glue up straight. It's all fun though. Getting lots of help from Pacific. Thanks Doug.

Thanks Doug.

Hello, Happy New Year, Hope everybody had a good Christmas. Had some time off work so I put in some serious modelling time. Got the front suspension and steering pretty much done , few little details to add. Had fun getting that double arm steering system to work. Same thing with rear suspension, getting all parts together  and setting the torsion arms up so they work. Thanks Doug.
