    Just like turning the tailwheel on a WWII fighter, the turned wheels will transfor this from a static object to a living depiction of the vehicle. Great stuff Chuck!

    Yes Erik same principle. Just add some character to the model.
    Now to finish up the under carriage.

    Install the 4 rear shock absorbers. Side of the hull to the differential.

    Next the rear sway/stabilizer bar. Mounts between the rear differentials.

    ]

    Next the rear grille panel.

    Support bracket for hitch and tow eyelets are next attached to rear grille panel.

    Before installing the exhaust tailpipe, i finish airbrushing the OD over the under carriage.

    The muffler is burnt metal and a wash of rust.

    The installed right under the grille panel.

    Next up, getting some interior work in.
    More to follow.

    It’s coming together superbly, Chuck!
    I love that muffler!

    Great job on that muffler!

    Thanks Spiros, Erik, that idea came from the He-219 technique on the dampers. Being a steel muffler and pipe not cast. Like on an automobile, the steel with the heat, cold, environment, it will start to show rust rather quickly.
