you bet...email me whatever you can.
if you can also include any details, it helps.
things like model name, number, date of manufacture, dimensions specs, etc
anything at all comes in handy later when referencing photos.

Will do. I've already seen stuff that I had no idea existed. Phoenix uses a hydrant fuel system, where the fuel is in tanks, and pumped underground to the gates, then a truck or cart that is just a pump and hoses is connected to the airplane and a valve in the ground. Plus for the cargo areas, we have big 10,000 gallon fuel trucks (which they might let me drive, even without a CDL).

It good to see you two heading to work together on ground equipment.
Definitely a welcome approach.

As I said, if there are photos to be shared, I'll gladly take copies.
Other than that, theres no other "working together".
lol


Is this a new job for you Aaron?
You working at an Airport now?

Yep. I went from fueling buses to fueling Airbuses. (That was my brother's joke).

Between other projects, I am still working on Airport vehicles...

these Fire/Rescue (Striker 3000)Trucks are my latest effort.
Haven't sorted out the roof accessories yet though.
Just wanted to get the basic vehicle done first.
There are some different options for accessories.

The white boom parts are just prototype...not sure about how to represent things yet.
At this scale, it needs to look good but not be too complicated to build.

Dave, this is one heck of fine project! I build (not design) models in 1/100 and when the wheel discussion (2D vs 3D) came up, I just had to add my 2 cents. I like 3D wheels on all my vehicles. If the kit does not have 3D, I find a hole punch as close as possible to the wheel size and punch a stack of holes in 110# card (to the thickness I need). I then press the stack to flatten the edges evenly; hold it with tweezers; apply a liberal amount of thin penetrating CA; then carefully transfer the stack to a piece of pre-positioned wax paper and let it harden overnight. OK, I know it is over-fiddly, but it does work.
