Looking good - can you shift the fifth wheel back a few millimeters to allow the sleeper to fit?
It looks as though you could get away with minimal clearance as the rounded front of the tank looks to work nicely with the sleeper fairing aerodynamically, and it would be a shame not to use the sleeper as then you'd have a big gap which could look weird?
I'm struggling with the truck I'm building at the moment - my lovely wife has knocked my drying rack over twice in the last 24 hrs and the last time it was loaded with freshly painted parts Plus I've made a real hash of the sleeper and have had to completely re-skin it with plastic card
I can't move the fifth wheel now and even if I did then it wouldn't look right as a general rule with a tandem drive rear axle you want the coupling in-between them as to give maximum tractive effort. Also have to allow room for the air and brake lines. If I knew now when I started this kit I would have built if very differently. But isn't that always the way?
Done some more. At long last got the yellow stripe on the cab done and painted the air horns and marker lights And yes that's a 24th scale figure of The Stig
What's in the background are parts to a N scale train station I'm building. as the layout is getting a re work as I wasn't that happy with it.
The DAF 2800 and trailer turned out to be something of a disaster. Nothing seemed to go right so they ended up in the bin sadly. However here's something that has worked out though I've still got stuff to do on it. A DAF XF 105. And yes that's The Stig
