      last few weeks ive been putting together some ideas on my next build
      im pretty sure i have most of it figured out how to do
      only difference between what im going to is that will have aworking water cannon on top the cab. other then that i think i can pretty much come close to it.
      the truck will be full functional
      i have the scale at 1/11.5
      rails are 843mm long
      this will have full detailed interior
      opening doors
      sounds lights etc
      i know its a little early to show you guys, because i really cant start for awhile. but i can do alittle here and there .once i get the t3000 done ,then i can go full throttle on it
      in the mean time , ive ordered parts for the chassis,tire, rims and axles
      heres a picture of the 1:1 m978 hemtt heavy fire truck tanker 8x8 . i will paint it the same scheme

    reason why i didnt use a v-8 because i figure big big truck use big big engine
    for the trans to fit right i had to cut it off and lower it 3/4 of inch
    then i hav to remake it to look some what of an original part.
    still need to paint the motor under the allison engine so you dont see it.
    the engine block is together and painted a coral blue
    also made engine mounts and ainted them matt black, there alot of work to go in this engine bay

    i was looking at some pictures of the driver side and noticed a steering box. my steering is on the other side
    so for more detail, i made one today. the mount is alum and the steering box is round styrene m978 hemtt heavy fire truck tanker 8x8

    Outstanding work.
