    Thank you for the kind words. I built this model in 2010 before the model kit was introduced. I prefer to build all my models in scratch for the challenge and enjoyment.

    Scratch built Freightliner Powerliner
    Hello everyone!

    Here is a project that I accomplished a while ago after several months of fabrication and decided to display some pictures.

    Entirely scratch built WFP-7564: cab, engine and chassis were made from sheet plastic. Sheet aluminum and tubing was used for grille, bumper, doors, exhaust, wheels and fuel tanks.




    Plastic profiles were used for engine block, transmission is fabricated from fiber glass






    Painted chassis





    Completed model









    Thanks for looking,

    Matti

    Thank you gentlemen. These were very popular trucks in Finland back in the 70's, 80's and 90's and I still see them today.

    Scratch built Volvo N-1023 roll-off
    Hello everybody!

    Here is my latest project that I've been working on since the Lonestar. An entirely scratch built Volvo N-1023.

    I used styrene to make the chassis, cab and hood. Engine, transmission and rear axles are made from fiber glass. Wheels, doors, bumper, fuel tanks, leaf springs and exhaust are aluminum.

    Here are some in-progress pictures. all of them can be seen here:

    Scratch built International Lonestar
    Hello!

    My name is Matti and this is my first post on this forum. I see familiar names here so some of you might recognize me from other forums.

    I build truck models entirely from scratch by using sheet styrene, aluminum and fiber glass.

    Here is my latest project that I finished last month: International Lonestar.


    i used sheet styrene for the cab, hood and bumper. Chassis is Evergreen styrene. Wheels are made of aluminum and curtain rod. Doors, grille, visor, exhaust and skirts are aluminum as well. I used Italeri tyres. Interior has vinyl upholstery

    In progress pictures can be seen here:

    Cummins ISX engine block, oil pan and transmission are made of fiber glass


    Thank you,

    Matti
