Ok so I spent the last 4 days working on this like crazy! Hours and hours sanding and polishing out the casting lines on the tankers. This being a all metal casting except for the glass and wheels I used only metal and JB weld to build it. Its super heavy. Added hose storage tubes on the sides. Used piano wire polished.
Also cut off the exhaust and fabbed my own. Drilled out the air horns. Robbed the wheels from 3 Deco delivery's. Im not super happy with the finished project. Taking pics doesn't help. The paint sucks. I used rustoleum due to lack of supplies for airbrushing.

Thanks for all the positive responses here guys! Heres some build pics.

Also I will be repainting it soon.

Scored some Duplicolor Clear coat ( which I have been out of) and 2 gallons of hugger orange in Quarts. For free! A friend changed color on a 1:1 project.
So stoked to clean up my airbrush and throw down some REAL PAINT!
Working on a stretch HotWheels GMC Tractor using a T-1 mid section as the sleeper.
Pics to come soon!Thanks again to all here.
