      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

    on the passenger side is a spare tire and mini boom
    i made one from styrene m978 hemtt heavy fire truck tanker 8x8 , everything on it works. both pullies, crank and the boom turns outward
    i need find some kind of string for it with a hook. next is a stand for the tire

    the tank has a weird shape to it. so what i did was buy some 4 inch pvc piping m978 hemtt heavy fire truck tanker 8x8 ,cut in half and added 90mm to the center part
    450mm long x 210mm wide and 112mm high
    i figure i show you what i have to do to build this part

    woe ! there was alot of sanding m978 hemtt heavy fire truck tanker 8x8 , throw some primer m978 hemtt heavy fire truck tanker 8x8 on it so i can see it better
    the a couple of different ways i can continue on the tank. basically you can do any mods to it you want.
    i think going with the fenders, hoses and a pump box

    Absolutely beautiful and without a doubt, first rate all the way. I love the way you used the PVC pipe to make the tank portion.
