    It's looking good so far. Are you able to print the tracks in a softer material or are they the same hard plastic as the rest of it?

    I can bro, I can print in NinjaFlex but its too soft, and yes the tracks is the same plastic as the doner kit.

    That's why I have chosen Hatchbox its Pla "not play lol" people get that confused when I talk to them about the 3d printer.

    Howdy Y'all, I am goin back to to future err wheels and I've decided to use them instead of the tracks, However the wheels will have skullz I printed out for hub caps.

    Anyways Here is my very very first rust job I did.
    Started with a 3 coat paint job.

    Yep, looking good. Are the walls and floor of the cab going to stay that bright red or do you plan to do some detail painting on those to make stuff pop?

    I am planning on doing some detail painting to the cab so it will pop out yes. I am taking it slow. I am not as good as PixalMagic when it comes to painting but I am getting way better.

    Yeah, I was just curious. I suck at painting, so I can't say anything. ;)

    Howdy Y'all, I've been plugging along on this peterbuilt and I was wondering if its good at all or not? This is my first model since I was like 14 or so.

    When I've "finished" a new model, all I can see are the little flaws and mistakes that most people would never notice. I have to put it somewhere in the background until I stop noticing it, then I can come back later, get a fresh look, and decide if I like it or not. Give it time, then you'll have a better idea if it's good at all or not.

    Just judging by the pics you've posted here, it looks pretty good to me.

    Thanks man, I got it %90 done. All that is left to do is about 20 minutes worth of work i.e adding the railing and lights and then touch up paint.
