Diesel Detail Freak
So as I assemble the Kaslo SD50F I have, I've noticed a little.

  1. Air tank installation. This became an issue, prototype photos and the intructions indicate to line it up with the edge of the 8th door, but the molded nubs on the interior of the shell put it about 3 door to far back.
  2. Plow size... Not to big but I'm a nit picker, the plow is too tall. I touches the ditchlights when it should have a gap, and a grab iron in between.
  3. Lack of pilot detail. This kit has some amazing detail, but lacks the air lines, MU Lines & MU hoses.

Thanks all so far, pics this weekend...
