2020 WESTERN STAR 4700 tri-drive concrete mixer
« on: February 09, 2020, 01:59:12 AM »
When you run out of longer barrel mixers and have only shorter ones on hand, the solution?

the section added here is a 1/24 scale scale Italeri rim sectioned and grafted in, now with a coat of primer, making it a 13 yd drum

the cab is a resin casting from Dwayne Currie mocked up on a Promotex builder chassis, battery boxes and DEF tanks are included.

Lööks very good so far. Dwayne Currie seems to be very busy in building masters in the last time.

Thanks Kurt! Yes, Dwayne has added quite a few of late, I have a Mack Anthem of his too.......hope to get to it soon.

I decided to add a lower and upper horizontal surround to the grille, it seems all the images I have observed have that feature. A bit more sanding and body working, off to the paint shop.

The wait is over Charlie, a familiar green grey look

and the grille black washed


the drum and the rest of the unit have not been painted, waiting to find some half round fenders, if I don't have any in my stash I may have to fab some up
