How to turn a bowl shaped part?
Well, do not have any radie-turning tool for lathe, so had to do as good as possible with normal bits and then making the last steps with a file. Doesn't feels good working with file when lathe is running.
Have seen some solutions on net, anyone having suggestion, all input appriciated, need that if making some wheels for next model.

Aircleaner top bowl

Anti skid plate mounted outside cab,

and got some nice cable for GPS, here just testing how it looks. Cables are those that stores selling phones use for safety (prevent stealing the phone). There's different sizes of cables, this one was the smallest one and has right diameter of the spool. Connection in both ends will be remade.
When building models, you should always keep eyes open, useable parts are everywhere!
