I'm behind on my updates a bit.

Interior is mostly done except the roof. The seat had a few little anomalies and required some obvious trimming of portions that were too long. Nothing earth shattering or insurmountable.

The rear box seats have formers top and bottom in their box supports that are too big. More trimming.

The inner fenders were an imprecise fit. I messed up the left one and had to do some color retouching after peeling it back loose to reposition.

The bottom boxes below the side doors and just aft, had no floors provided. I used extra black color provided to make those.

Lastly, the visor base that goes on the top rim of the cab would not fit without trimming off the extra material sticking up above the windshield area.

I like this designer but these are some strange issues that should not have occurred.

Also there are no patterns for the windows or the mesh behind them. I used the frame dimensions to size the mesh parts.

It's coming along great Greg. What did you use for the window mesh?

Thanks for checking in Don!

Ray, it is mesh I got from Mark Twain Hobby near St Louis a couple years ago. It's from a Netherlands company I think. They had several mesh sizes/styles so I stocked up a bit.

It's taken me a bit for these tire and wheel assemblies. Not because they are difficult, they're not, but because I was procrastinating cutting out the tire treads.

I replaced the paper lug bolts with bolt heads offered by Meng Models.

I can see why you were avoiding cutting out that odd tread pattern. Looks good though.

Rear axle installed. A little fiddly but otherwise no issues.
