Stefan added a topic in Under Glass: Pickups, Vans, SUVs, Light CommercialTwo type twoHi,
Here are my finished Hasegawa type 2Â´s!
Both are painted with automotive laquer.
The grey one is box stock except for the sparebox tires and Polar Lights Herbie hub caps.
The pick-up has the 23-window bus bumpers, converted Revell Empi rims and also sparebox tires. The roof arch is scratchbuild.

Stefan added a topic in On The WorkbenchTwo Type 2 - nearly finishedhi,
IÂ´m working on 2 Hasegawa Type 2, the delivery van and the Pick-up.
First I must say this kits really suck!
There is nearly no detail on the Chassis and the interior. The chrome is bad and they even have chromed taillights and front sidemarkers with no glass...
The bodys have good shapes, but some sinking marks.
The price for them here is really a joke. I donÂ´t know about how much they are in the US, but here in Germany theyÂ´re really expensive.
Thank god i got mine from HLJ :wink:
I think modellers can expect more from a japanese manufacturer. (Or any manufacturer).
here are some pics:
I Lowered the chassis (Both have the same chassis, so the work was equal).
I took the bumpers from the 23 window bus.
The Bodys have a few sinking marks which needed to be filled.
I glued the blinker in place and sanded them.
After painting the bodys I had the problem how to paint the VW-logos...
The decals donÂ´t fit :roll: , I tried to mask them with BMF but that didnÂ´t work either. I masked the outside with Tamiya tape then and the inner parts with liquid masking fluid.
I painted the logos before the clearcoat and worked them over with a fine brush.
I donÂ´t understand why the heck Hasegawa didnÂ´t made them as seperate parts???
This is how they look right now.
I need to add some more details like rearview mirrors...
The van is nearly box stock except for partbox tires and the hupcaps which come from the herbie kit (was that from polar lights?).
The pick up has the bumpers from the bus and Empi rims which came from the Revell Imp. I made them larger and added also partsbox tires.
More to come...

Stefan added a topic in On the Workbench: Big RigsFord LTL 9000 with TrailerHi,
this is the first (and last :wink: ) big rig iÂ´ve ever build:
An Italeri Ford with an italeri trailer. IÂ´ve shortened the chassis of the truck 3cmÂ´s , the sleeper is also shorter and its roof is scratchbuild.
The dors are hinged with brass hinges.
IÂ´ve added some scratchbuild details, like the rear fenders and the grille-net.
Most of the crome parts are done with alcladII. DonÂ´t ask me why i did it :roll: ... It works well on smaller parts but on big parts like the bumper it is not good, because it is not very scratch and "finger" resistant.
The trailer is build oob, except for the 10cm shortening.
Today I know that the trailer rims are wrong.
All the decals are homemade by a club-fellow.
I hope you like it...
...ans allways remember: donÂ´t take your pics in the noons sun!
