Well after having this truck since new in 1995 [so 12 years of owning the 1838] I thought it was time to give it a full rebuild. Having got some carson hop ups from my trip to germany and collecting many spares, it was time to give it a clean. I have still yet to mount the MFU inside the cab (Planning on keeping the drives seat). I Have however remade the tank where the control panel fits to give it a fuller fit, the receiver is also mounted inside here. My orignal colour was based on a herpa model I have had for ages. I have now finally also made it look closer with the bullbars and rear stacks :). I am some much happier with it now, it's no longer the rough truck in the collection :)

With the herpa version. My custom MFU tank, with receiver inside. Rear stack mounts. The custom Tank with MFU control and receiver
