Hi all modellers....

 

  I´m from Slovakia. I started with this hobby before 18 years, with one 7 years long pause. Because the children was too small and dangerous.

 

  This is my second truck model after pause. Diamond Reo from AMT. This is my first kit from AMT. Here in Slovakia we made trucks mainly from revell and italeri. The price of this firms are on same level (30-50 eur).

 

  So, let´s go to the truck. At the first I must to tell you, that this kits is based on my idea. It´s not copy of real truck.

As based I used revell synt. color 61. Clear coat is excellent Super clear lll. as the spray gun I´m using H/S Infinity 2in1. PE parts are from excellent Czech Truck Model (http://www.liaznavzd...edtrans/ctm.php), from Model car garage and from cans from some energy drinks :rolleyes:. The antena is made of guitar string 0,35 or 0,36 mm. Domain sources, you know it...

The chrome frome all parts is removed and replaced by Alclad. And of course, sorry for my english.

 

So, lets go to photos (the last few are from workbench):

Hi,

Great build - these were not easy kits to put together. Thanks for the info on the suppliers as well, I'll have a look at Czech Truck Model too. Am I right in believing they do photo etched grilles for Kenworths?

Don't worry about the English - we understood what you were saying and that, after all, is the purpose of language!

Cheers,

Jim

To Jim: Yes, you´re right. I´ve this w 900 PE parts from CTM. On the planchete are parts such as grill, handles, logos, exhauts covers, sealing of front window and more. I´have also excellent PE kit for International Lonestar including colorfull parts of interior, also complicated exhausts covers....
Such as PE kit for White Freight.Cabover which includes parts for both version Long and also daycab. This is also very valuable kit.
Now guys prepare PE kits and make testshots of International Prostar, and prepare PE parts for this new kit.
http://www.modelforu...p?f=158&t=73655 - it is our forum.
They make also PE parts such as radiator mesh, toolboxes, handles, also for for eurotrucks such as Scania, Man, Daf.....
Also I must don´t forget kits for Petes 377 and 378, than for conversion Chevy Titan to Old Astro or kit for Astro Newer version with big grill.
CTM is team of excellent model truck builders and great peoples.
