  1. I'm building a Mack LTL . I use the complete kit from AITM. It is nice kit withe a big problem, the rims. These 11x22.00 tire are ok but the rims seems to be not 20" rims. They are too small for a 22" rim. I have to search my parts bin to find some new rims or print them either. While watching a video on Youtube about a Mack LTL 2 axle truck I saw that the battery mount looks different to the one on the frame from AITM. So I made quick 3d model and start prininting. THere are a few outher things on the frame to improve but these are not that important. T
  2. I would like to enter BRBO 2021 as well with a MACK LT from AITM

  7. This one is a 1961 Cadillac Jacqueline by Pininfarina. This car debuted at Paris Salon in 1961 and it was named after First Lady Jacqueline Kenndy. The only stock Cadillac itemes thta were unchaged were the 1960 rims, dashboard andthe steering wheel. The Jacqueline wore a traditional Cadillac crest on its hood, minus one element: the broad vee that had come to stand for the division's trademark V-8 engines. Because it was a pushcar without engine. In 1996 a 1960 Cadillac Eldorada Biaritz spent its engine to make Jacquline now a running car. Picture were taken at the 2012 Schloss Dyck Classic.

  8. This ist the last quiz for 2020. This year was strange. We still have a pandemic, a country that will we leave a union, a country that had an election and a great group of modeller and participant of the quiz that I did in 2020. I hope that 2021 will be different from 2020. So please sent a PM with Year, Make and Type. Deadline will be (Deadline Jan. 3, 2021 0:00 CET)
  9. This time I was looking for an Italian car a 1964-1970 Autobianchi Primula. The Primula was a prototype for Fiat's rack and pinion steering and is widely known for its innovative Dante Giacosa-designed front-wheel drive, transverse engine layout — that would be later popularized by the Fiat 128 to ultimately become an industry-standard front drive layout.

  13. Got to today the cable car. Lots of wood and pewter parts and it is huge. Before I start it I'll have to finish the Oshkosh and the trial.
  14. Yes I got the last 2 of them I think. I had a look for a locomotive as a load. They are way too expensive $450 plus. Now a San Francisco Cable car from Ocre will be the load. I got it for a good price.
