After a break to build a few "easier" projects, I have returned to this one.

Part 71 - tanks

Actually built these up before my break. I don't really remember any specific issues with them though. Still need to mount the under floor supports before installing the actual cab floor.

Part 72 - cab body side and cowl panels.

So the inner panel piece 72b does not exist. Since I figured that the wall thickness should be a bit more than one layer of card, I laminated a piece of black construction paper to the backside of 72a. The remaining components fit fine.

Part 73 - turn indicators

no major problems other than the boxes holding the pendants have the inner and outer pieces reversed.

Part 74 - Cab floors

As indicated previously, I do not like the printed diamond plate on the original parts. Nothing looks like diamond plate other than diamond plate. So I used some photoetched brass plate (link in previous post) to replace the original. One of the really nice things about this plate is that it is just a touch thicker (0.29 mm) than the original part (0.25 mm). This means I could use the original bottom piece and just glue the new pieces in as direct replacements.

Parts 75-81 cab parts

I did not assemble these numerically because that did not make any sense.

Parts 79 are the control levers and pedals for the floor and these needed installed before the floor was placed on the chassis.

The pedal "posts were supposed to mount through a U shaped bracket under the floor but the bracket interfered with the firewall, so I cut it loose.

the control lines for the pedals and levers were omitted. The thought of trying to figure out where they all go and then try to fish them through to their destinations was not appealing so they were not installed.

the parts installed on the front of the front seat pedestal assembly needed to be added before installing the pedestal.

The seat bottoms front and rear are supposed to be hinged to allow them to be raised and lowered for access underneath. Only the front seats are capable as I glued the rear seat bottom in place.

When I tried to install the cab sides, I found the fit at the firewall extremely vague, poor and frustrating. I ended up adding additional filler panels to address this. I also found the cab fender lines to not transition well to the drivers side bottom hood panel. I ended up cutting parts loose and refitting several times before I got something that works. That doesn't mean it looks good though. The pictures lie.

Then I found I had to adjust the steering wheel mount and add 2 mm of spacing with 3 mm diameter card discs.

None of this was much fun to be honest. I may need another break soon....
