hi guys,
i am Christiaan, and live in The Netherlands.

I am building the Revell Lonestar, and must say it's an great model. Thanks to Moebius of course.
First i wanted to build it straight out of the box, but changed some things after all.
Now i am working on the interior.

That's looking really nice! I think you're past all the tricky parts, if i remember correctly. Great job, I like the colors & the rear fenders.

You're doing this truck justice Chris, maybe you should give US pointers! Nice paint scheme, plumbing, engine, etc...

Thanks for the compliments.
What are US pointers??

I live in the North of the Netherlands, a place called Emmen.
My work is truckdriver in shifts, hauling live poultry.

I think he meant you could give us pointers, not US pointers. I am not sure we can offer any tips or tricks, you have done a great job and that truck looks great.

Thanks for posting and welcome to the forum.

That's what I meant, sorry! What's fun about this forum is that we can pick up little and bigger tricks we didn't think about. We get to see high quality builds here, like this Lonestar.

Yes, the maxxforce decal is part of the box.
The revell instructions are very good and easy to follow.

The interior is ready. But i made an mistake to glue the backpanel of the cab on it's place before the interior.
That's wrong but my mistake.
Now i had to take it apart and put the top and sides seperatly in the cab and glued them.

Looks as though you have things well in hand...... I'm waiting for some putty to cure on mine right now; can't wait to sling some paint.

Would it be wrong to have the Revell instruction booklet from be shown around here? Copyright problems would arise wouldn't they? I think it would be a great help to some Moebius kit owners...
