lol that sounds like my modelling in general.
Looking good, I should carry on with my Hobbyboss one even if it's just to compare it to the Accurate Armour one.

Looking great there Eagle. How do you remove the casting from resin wheels?

If you mean the lump of resin that's attached to the wheel I use the little saws as obtained from Accurate Armour which is mounted in a blade holder. you are left with a bit of a flat spot and no detail to which you are supposed to arrange the wheel so the flat is at the bottom of the wheel.

I decided to go along with a nato colour pattern, I used an AK nato set and set about applying the pattern as I saw fit .The AK paints flow through the airbrush without any thinner or water but I did notice that the paints are supposed to be flat and yet all three had a distinctive glossy sheen to them. However it was not a problem as the whole thing was given a coat of floor cleaner polish I have long forgotten which one as its in an unmarked bottle but I know what it is. I shall leave it all alone now for 24 hours at least for the polish to go rock hard.

I just had to stop what I was doing for a moment to show this picture .It show the application of MIG crystal orange and the effect you can obtain with it .
you first of all apply silver paint to the area let it dry .And then apply the Mig crystal on top of that .I have found that you can build it up between coats as well.
Well I think its really good at he Het and trailer have a lot of reflectors all over it so it really makes it pop.

It is the actual trailer that's twisted ,this is what you get with resin I should have addressed it before I started.
Maybe it will touch down when I put the load on.
Next job, decals on the tractor unit.

There is still a mountain of detail to be added but I may break off here from the main build and introduce the load.

Taking photos of the model helps to focus in on the detail of the model. For the while I'm trying to add all the bits I have left over to get as near the end as I can before I crack open the intended load.

There are still a couple of things yet to be added that's not including the windows. They still have to be added but I'm looking round for something that will tint them a weak shade of green.

Future tinted with green food colouring?
If you go this route, you need more food colouring than you would expect (more than the few drops you would use in food)
