Added most of the underbody details; truss rods are not up on the queen post yet



In a time like ours seemings and portents signify. Ours is a generation when dogs howl and the skin crawls on the skull with its beast's foreboding.

Looks good, Martin. What material are you using for the truss rods?

I like the scale youíre modeling, Martin. The models have actual mass and details are closer to scale.

Have you picked out a color yet? Given the contents of the tank how about a DayGlo green?

Usually I'm using surgical silk, but I ran across a partial spool of 25 lb braided nylon casting line that looked and felt right.

Had some thoughts about a crimson for the tanks, but I think not. Tool boxes will get their own color.

I see you "splashed" paint down into all the hard to reach areas.

Great thing about spraying paint - it goes everywhere!

Very well done.

I like the numbers on the tanks with no explanation; keeps people speculating as to what kind of hazardous material is inside.
