It went together very well. Now trying to decide wether to brush or spray paint it, I have a feeling the spray paint would make it look better, only thing I have not used spray paint before. Also not sure I want to go buying the paint for just one model.

Laugh Jeez, she's HUGE!
Looks great though. What did you decide on in the end? Brush or airbrush?

Cheers

I decided to go with brush painting, it doesn't need a showroom shine on the body.

Tried brush painting part of the body and the paint just scrapes off with a fingernail, back to the drawing board on the paint then!

Didn't use one in the end.

I have decided that once I have some funds again, to bite the bullet for the delivery costs and get the spray paint for it from Sydney. It has to come by road as it is considered dangerous goods by airlines!

In the meantime, I have started on a container trailer for the Knight Hauler to pull.

Start of the container itself.





I have lights coming for the trailer and a bullbar for the truck.
