It looks very good; as it is made as kind of combination with this year fire plane. Just one question - you probably don't have Cat dozer to put yellow 5 x 7 frames in rear part of cab?

Thanks and well, not sure about that, I wouldn't tow such big plane on a flatbed :D

The grey color is intentional here - the original model had the battery visible from the back of the cab and there was a top edge that was partially yellow, partially black which was holding the steering knob, but I built it slightly differently with more clear space for ergonomy.

There are few parts I couldn't get in specific colors that would make it more obvious, like for example here the black thin liftarms within the frames should be dark grey to represent the battery cover, but I couldn't find it locally in this color. Also I couldn't get enough trans orange 1x1 tiles so there's a one imperfection in that top trans orange light with a 1x2 tile instead, and for some reason I couldn't get red liftrams 7L for the lever under the flatbed at the time I was placing orders. I hope the design is what counts because those are just small part sourcing issues.

I understand why you choose light bluish gray frame. It us funny to tow firefigthing airplane; my idea is that this yruck could be part of team together with firefigthing aitlrplane, offroad vehicles for woods inspection etc...

Well, yeah, the color theme is something that fits some kind of special firefighting vehicles.

EDIT: Btw, what's interesting with the original set is that the B-model has completely different vibe:

I think I'm finished with the instruction. Managed to grab few openings to go through all of it. Will try to release the video and instructions tomorrow.

Because I'm short on time recently, I didn't test this step by step physically building it, so proceed with caution, but I think the steps should make sense.

I suppose tractor might be slightly too small, but they look very cool together
