Cat CT660 build 3
Above you can see that the angle is not 90 degrees ,so the plate is bend a little bit further by hand.
Above you can see the roof soldered to the cabine.
On the left you can see the front edge of the roof finished,and also one of the grooves is finished.
Above you can see how the brass plate is being bent into shape,I use a tube of the desired diameter,and clamp it in the vice,and then it is bent into shape.
After that, the parts are soldered into place above the side panels,and after that finished into the desired curve on the front side edge.
On the left you can see a over view of the bumper
Above on the left you can see that a massive piece of brass is soldered into place on the backside edges.After cooling,it is being finished into a nice curve.19 December 2015:
Above you can see the small rain gutter soldered to the cabine,it is made from a small u-shaped brass rod.
Above you can see that the upper part of the doors have been reinforced,by adding a extra piece of brass sheet,also the desired thickness is achived to hold the window rubber in place.
Above you can see that I cut out the support rod from the frame at the front side,because it was visable from the front windows,and now the roof is finished,it has enough strenth of it's own.
On the left you can see that I soldered some extra brass pieces on the inside of the roof,this is done to get enough thickness to make some thread in the roof,to hold the sun visor later on.On the right you can see the lower cabine parts made out of brass plate.The three holes are drilled,and then cut out with a jewelers saw,and finished with a file.Ther are going to be placed two position lights, and one light that lights the steps when entering the cabine.
Above on the left you can see the parts soldered to the bottem of the cabine,if they where soldered to the side panels,the bottem couldn't be removed because of the angle of the pieces.On the right you can see how it looks on the truck.00 December 2015:
Above you can see that like on the real truck,I ad some rivets to the cabine,they are soldered in place.
Above you can see the end result after touching up the surface.
Above you can see another small detail,on the right hand side there is a small vent gitter,so I also made this to my model.
So now cabine is sofar ready,I will start with the engine hood,wich hinge is located on top of the front bumper,so first I have got to make the front bumper.On the left you can see the bumper I like to make,there are different types,but my choise is the one with the heavy duty tow pin in the center.The center piece will also be the base for the rest of the bumper.On the right you can see the center piece after some milling of the aluminium block.
On the left you can see the center piece after some more milling and drilling.On the right you can see that the bumper is made from stainless steel,like on the real truck,and is welded together with tungsten welding gear.
On the left yoan see the bumper after the welding.On the right you can see the bumper after grinding,sanding and polishing,also some gitter is made at the back of the holes in the center part.
On the left you can see the bumper attached to the chassis.On the right a close-up.07 Januari 2016:
Above you can see the construction of the side parts of the bumper,like on the real truck,they are bolted to the mid section.These parts are also made from stainless steel.
On the left you can see the top and lower parts cut out ,I leave them bigger than needed,to make the welding easier,if the parts where smaller,they can melt very fast during the welding.On the right the parts are clamped and ready to weld.
On the left you can see the parts welded together.On the right you can see the parts after grinding and sanding.
