    Default I must have been KRAZy starting this build.

    Kraz 255

    This build has been sitting on my shelf for far too long, i really must get it finished.
    After playing Spin Tyres i came up with the great idea of building my own logging truck!
    Many years later it still isn't finished. At least i got the roof completed this week.

    It is a 6x6 with a Tamiya Ford F350 three speed gearbox. The rear axles are Tamiya TLT axles and have two prop shafts running to them. The first runs straight to the middle axle, the second runs over the middle axle and then onto the rear. This allows for greater articulation and is how the real truck was built.

    The body is all scratch built from plasticard.

    Louvers are all individually hand cut and placed in position.

    Front grill also has a radiator and intercooler behind it.

    You had a solid build on your shelf sir! It seems only some pieces left to finish this one. As i want to build some heavy 6-8 wheel truck after playing this game it will be pleasure to watch yours.

    Spintires made me want either a 6x6 or 8x8, but those are way out of my budget. Eventually I'll get around to doing something like yours, which looks great.

    Keep up the good work!

    After a year of working 70+ hours every week and not having time to do anything a new job has now given me more free time.
    So, time to get this finished.
    I have been painting on and off for this last week and I think there is some light at the end of the tunnel.
    Engine, complete.

    Dash, 90% complete.

    Paintwork, getting there, lots of weathering. Not sure why the rust looks so red in the photos. Not as bright in real life.

    Hope to get most of the rest of the weathering done this weekend, although I'm thinking of new stuff to add all the time.

    I'm glad this was brought back up. Amazing.

    The engine looks spot-on as well.
