The cab's done except for sanding. That's the fun part

Started on the dually fenders. The tricks is to make them exactly the same. We'll see if I can pull it off

Did you use bed sides for the dually fenders?
Looking good!

Jeff, Tamiya polyester putty. Best stuff I've found so far and its sanding characteristics match the styrene perfectly

Thor, yep, hacked 'em right off

Andy, someone had to do it.

Matt, I added a semi wheel to the width. That'd be scale.

Nick, if I can find my tape measure, I'll get a WB for ya. It's been MIA for a few weeks, but it's probably on the workbench Send me the wheels you're using and I'll make some duallie rears for ya.

Ballpark it at 14.0 inches. You can fudge it a little, but 14 will get you close. Hard to tell with no front bumper.

Send 'em to me and I'll find a way to jam 'em in there

Fronts too. I'll put a little offset on 'em.

Wouldn't hurt to throw a couple of 'em in there, I don't need all six.

We'll see how well they fit under here

Order up a pair of RC4WD straight axle adaptors and I'll be able to tuck the wheels right under.

If you slow down a sec I can help you have a better outcome on the dually part of your truck since I've been working on mine for quite some time and have tried various things. If you're using 1.9 tires and rims your wheels will be outside your fenders no matter what you do. The best thing you can do is use a semi axle on the rear. That will bring your wheels under the bed more than anything else you can do. If you're gonna use touring car rims you'll have to make adapters to bolt 2 together on each side on the rear. I've made some simple adapters out of threaded rod couplers, 1/4" nylon bolts, and some 4mm screws for studs. I'm using blackfoot fenders as a platform for my fenders since they are about the right width to start with. If you wait, RC4WD may have everything you need to build your truck better in a few months since they're working on developing some 1.9 dually parts at this time.
