This is gonna look cool!  Tell us a little bit more on your build process, how do you get the major parts together in place before you paint the model?  It appears that you will have to disassemble a lot of components again, detail and reassemble. And I get that you can only paint outdoors so that is on tap for this weekend, do you get any dust or dirt in the paint?

Modeltruckbuilder, that painting as a unit operation makes a lot of sense.  Especially as that is how the truck manufacturers do it as well.  I presume that it speeds up the operation.  I trust that you can spray inside all of the nooks and crannies of the parts?  

 

I want to build an American LaFrance fire truck, this may encourage me to start on it!

Your snow plough is coming on really well. Look forward to following the progress.

I was wondering why the stupid title? "RE:-" 

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)
