    Here is the first truck I have done that is weathered all over, cab included. It is a Mack CH 603 day cab converted to a single axle and a toolbox has been added on the chassis. I painted the whole thing orange because it is a Caltrans truck. I still need to print some decals for it. This is the first time I have ever weathered a cab. Is it too much?

    Here is a 53' container I also weatherd yesterday. I added some decals to it and painted it light grey. The container is decorated for Valley Aggregates and has 2 Keep Out signs and a Hard Hat Area sign. I also cut one side of the door off so it was open. I plan on putting some small equipment or machinery in there.

    Looks good trucklover, The trailer looks pretty good, the tractor may be a tad overdone there usally not dumped on like that(dirty trucks flag DOT cops!) but its your railroad lol. Now the contanier on the other hand is perfect, brought back some memories of long haul driving hauling them things.But that's another story. :D :wave:

    Thanks BNYC, I was looking at it and thinking that I shoulda taken the mirrors, grab bars, horns, and the "bull dog" on the hood off when I weather, it would make it easyer to "wipe" off the dirt and grime. Im going to go do that right now, good thing I didn't seal that thing yet!!

    Very nice weathering job on your trucks, Josh :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: . But unlike Deano and yourself, the XTRA leasing trailer is my favorite.

    Thanks Kurt, I like the XTRA Lease trailer too but I have to admit that the logo on the other side is gone:curse: and I can only photograph one sideof the trailer. I had a little accident when I was trying to fade the logo and I went a little to far:oops: :oops:.

    All well, I still think that the trailer is cool to and it looks great, at least that side that is pictured lol

    I like the trucks there trucklover, the xtra leasing truck caught my eye, I thought I was back in a truck stop :thumb::thumb: !! All those trailers need now are some air lines hanging down in front of the tandems. Good work on all those models. :wave:
