    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.
