      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    @ Thundercat

    I'm busy building not one single trailer but a b-double. The first one is a 1675 cu four axle Polar dry bulk with a fifth wheel. The second one is a 1330 cu tree axle Polar dry bulk.

    All seven axles have forced steering, chassis are build out of brass, tank is styreen

    It took me several years tom come to this. I hope you all like it

    Hey Dave,
    Love your work. I'm a Dutch modeller building RC and static models in 1:24 scale. We ( my dad and me ) don't use donor models, but our models are completely scratch build. To build them we use brass profiles te build the frame work. We create all the parts we need by hand. I have some pictures includet to show you what we have done until now

    this is a chassis of a MAN TGA includig a hand build diff

    the diff

    this is a picture of the chassis of a Western Star

    and some of te parts for the front and rear axles

    to give you an immage of the completed models these pictures of the MAN from below

    keep up the good work, hope to see you again
