    Looking great, the lifting eye/tie downs look sharp. Did you have any presence in the AFOL community online? We might actually know each other

    Not much of a presence really - mostly lurking on the r/AFOL and r/legotechnic subreddits

    Thank you. I reached a point this evening where the build crossed that threshold from "what could it look like" to "I actually like this thing".

    First, the radio tray arrived from GCM Racing. Thank you for bearing with my garbled and confused first email, and then for getting it to me so quickly!



    If Canada weren't so far away I'd be a groupie...

    Anyway, progress The grill wasted a lot of time. First one was too small, on the second I forgot to round out the inside corners, and the third take is waiting for me to decide on slats like the 1:1 has, or mesh.



    Here's the truck with the grill attached.

    Got most of the bed done. Waaay to much repetition in there







    Next up snorkel, air tanks and so on to stop it from looking like something out of Moon Patrol.

    In typical fashion, you're making all of us look bad!

    Just kidding Mike, but wow it's looking a treat so far. I really admire your clean lines and near perfect approach to building complex shapes, well done!

    Thanks Hey it's just boxes though. Online blueprints only have a front and side view but you can infer the top view from that. Resize drawings to track width, trace the shapes onto styrene, cut out, glue together and...

    It's no harder than a C303 The hardest part for me is always how it mounts to the chassis.

    Did some work on the dash.



    neonsnow78 went to all the trouble to take and then post photos of the dashboard (THANK YOU), and I repay that effort with the goof of the month.

    Four vent controls, only three vents



    The left side of the instrument panel isn't all that accurate either, but I suspect it'll do, given that the dashboard is pretty visible through those big windows, but inaccuracies not that obvious from the outside.

    It's not finished yet, so it may change anyway.

    Are you going to mount up the spare behind the cab and add the area where the oil dipstick areas are etc? This thing looks great!!
