Hi everybody,  the IH Transtar just finished (well almost, you're right) I've started my first Scania Truck Build and first wrecker. The colour will be the same as the box-art. I tried to detail a little more the dashboard, especially the middle part, which was full of emptiness, adding some parts.

Looking good, Man...Looking good....This thing is expensive to get around here....I have several rigs with this wrecker body, but can't get any more....Can't afford it...

Awesome work on the engine...Looks good, green...Keep up the good work...

What colour undercoat you have used?? I have read somewhere to put silver under white and yellow colours.

Isn't that the same wrecker body in the Western Star kit? Looks familiar.

Tamiya grey primer. The only one I get. Should have used the white one. After an other pass (not sure it's the right word) the result is quite better

It's the same wrecker body than the Italeri's. Only the other two Revell Wreckers have a different one I think

Well it's not that strange as this whole kit is originally made by Italeri and reboxed and issued by Revell AG.
I built the first Italeri version back in the late 80's, kit No 772, and here is a couple of pictures of it.

Hey, Man....Nice build, so far....I like that interior, too......I agree that Yellow is a hard color to lay down.....But I've learned to use it to my advantage....If you use flat black as a primer, as the yellow tends not to fill the recesses and the edges very well, anyway, You'll find that those places show up darker and looks like you've used a black wash, instead of showing up as faded paint....I hope you can follow what I'm saying....In other words, your door panel lines and such look like it's done on purpose.....It's kinda like using alclad chrome....I recommend you try that the next time you try to lay down yellow...Or any other color, that matter....All my paint jobs have flat black as primer....

yes I see what you mean. First I tought it would be a good idea, but it was not....Better luck next time !

 

Some weathering on the upper part of the wrecker trying to hide the  glue problem on the paint.........but I know you should glue before painting.....

 

light weathering on the cab and crane but too heavy, I think, inside the hood

 

Today another pics :

Well I hope to finish it for the end of.......the year ^_^  (get some time lol) In fact the front bumper and the "basket" above the roof (take a look to the box art) need some more paint : it's not exactly the same color than the truck yet. I'm working on the chromed parts and the last parts for now on, next the decals because the weather is quite bad :  10/15 °C is not good for spraycan paint. I think I had to wait for Spring time.............Think I will make a try before it, I'll not be that patient

 

Then, waiting for better weather I may start a Revell K100 aerodyne or an Italeri Magirus-Deutz 360M19 or a trailer for my finished trucks

hi, some new pics. Most of the decals on. Chromed parts too. The parts above the cab are not glued, it's a test
