Always a decision to make hey Charles? Some builds I super detail and others not so much, depends on my mood maybe or maybe just no particular reason -it's what makes model building fun, do what YOU wanna do!

Realizing that there is so much that I want to put in to this model, I'm trying to motivate myself to continue this project.

I turn my attention to the engine.

It seems the that most common engine that I have found in a typical 1990s Ford L9000 Aeromax 106 tractor is the Cummins L10.

I finally found a project for the aftermarket 1/25th scale resin Cummins L10 I have had since the the late 1990s.  This was one of several excellent engines that were available from R & C Model Parts. I understand MO'LUMINUM truck model accessories http://moluminum.com/ had acquired the molds for some of these resin replica engines. The Cummins L10, like all of the other R & C engines is quite the detailed model within itself.  It has 25 separate parts that are well cast.  I am choosing to detail it with the assistance of an article from a 1996 article from Car Modeler Magazine, by Ken Smith.  I have also found photos of various L10 engines.
