My forklift project is progressing nicely. I painted the tires and wheels, and installed the roll cages on all of them. I still need to add the operator at this point. Since the kits come with extra parts, I decided to take an extra operator and see if I could cut the seat and steering wheel from the casting. Using a sharp hobby knife I was able to make a separate seat and steering column without a lot of trouble. You can see them in the nearest forklift in the photo below. It looks more appropriate for a machine at rest, parked while not in use. The last steps will be adding the forks and then applying some weathering to make them look used.
