Some of you may have seen this in my 'projects' section (the before pictures are still there). I bought it as an incomplete project but it was as new and hadnt even had radiogear installed.
After hours and hours spent searching ebay for parts, they arrived from all over the world and the build was finally completed. The bodyshell needed to be stripped and re-painted and detailed. So after much expense and work its finally complete. I am pleased with the finished model and despite originally wanting it box-art, have decided to leave most of the decals on the sheet and go for the clean look to match my Mounty. This one will stay on the shelf as no electrics are fitted. It has lighting kit and Cultech alloy mirror. All chrome details were done using Bare-metal foil for a more realistic appearance and model-technics trimline was used to make the black 'side-mouldings' as per the Mountaineer.

By far - one of the best Bruiser trucks on TC. Outstanding - gives me something to compare to if I get my hands on one !
