« Part 5: Glueing the cabin on the frame Part 6 of Peterbilt truck series Part 7: Air filters mount »

Before I could glue the roof on the cabin I first had to do the interior.

I made the gearshift on the lathe:

Doing this by sanding:

After sanding the final result:

I Also made a steering wheel. Drew it in Acad:

Made the chairs before but didn,t take a picture.
Below you can see al parts mounted in the cabin:

Another picture of the interior cabin:

Then glued the roof on it and like always oversized:
Sanded it:

After it I made some carves in it. Also sanded the sides of the cabin with a smaller grit. (When I saw the picture I still could see some scratches, so I have to do more sanding):
