  1. Dan its a very big project , like this and many more , now moving to a other place and sorted out jacobus
  2. Thank,s Gator have make some changes , extend the chassis for 4 fueltank,s [ 2 both side,s now i think what wheels i put on , normal ore spokes paint already the chassis and the picture,s wil follow [ if the camera wil work he have some faults now ] and also a big clean up in my room . so much to sort out of the part,s [ like fueltank,s - wheel,s and tyre,s - suspensions , - engine,s and a big pile of transkits , i didnt know that i have such big pile of it - if i see more than 50 you think that i am crazy ] and a lot of kit,s from AMT - ITALERI , REVELL ETC ETC about 350 boxes so ppfff now a put the european on one side and usa on the other but thats a terrible job but i love it to see what i have also a bunch of trailers and car,s and the worst must stil come , about more than 1000 diecast model,s from scale 1:43 and 1:50 and 1:87 to sort out jacobus
  3. thats correct i orderd some parts and normal wait about 2 weeks now after 8 weeks its arrived now everybody blame the covid but i think thats not alway,s correct the put everywhere a brake on and sometime,s its not needed jacobus
  4. so , i am a little bit shame , forget to put and take some pictures of the progress have also wait longer for some parts do the virus [ corrona ] everything is slow , the shop,s , mail etc etc yesterday finnaly came some stuff at home so today can i go on other build must now clear the table so the aussie can build further jacobus
  5. hello , i think there is a curse on this built , everytime i fix some things something else get broken put the wheels on axle broken [ BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH material revell !!! ] so first dril al out and make metal axle,s before the other,s get broken hood looks not good on hight , don,t know how that,s possible but the front wheel looks in my eyes not correct , so change the hinges and so struggle on on this built 1 step forward and 2 back , now i hope that it wil go a little better til the next update whit the picture,s of a hopeful normal model ore W.I.P. jacobus
  6. a lot thing to think about this one square fueltank,s ore round ?? and 2 on each side . bullbar yes ore no highrise sleeper ore a normal one color , i thinkin a kind of red but have seen now so many color,s that i am confussed engine cat ore cummins and so i try to make it a nice and shine one jacobus
  7. great ! a lot of work to save it but it looks very good the interior is perfect also the engine and chassis and who let the dog inn [ he hates kenworth,s ??? ] wel we see how its go and wat kind of color he gets jacobus
  8. yesterday came finnaly some parts that i orderd some time ago , due the corona virus have it take some longer time to delivering now i can move on with the build , wel the hobbytable are full with some other build,s , now put it aside and go on with this aussie kenworth so much nice builds here that i can stay behind LOL jacobus
  9. wel also go on with the feightliner , first have take a look witch color a use for the bumper , and its the orange-yellow take some shots to look how its like here with the exhaust , curved and now work slowly to finishd this one jacobus
  10. wel , its go wrong cab and roof sleeper paint white and that was rubbish , so now its in the oven cleaner , i think it was to cold ore my one fauld to put no gloves on when i tough it frame is now painted in primer and must take some picture,s of it to show engine is a ??? witch one i wil use , the cat ore put the cummins onder the hood also wait for some parts that i order , hope its come quick its very strange weeks to stay inside and the mail put it on the front of your door and rings and step a away for 3 meters [ i can understand that ] says yep and byby jacobus
  11. yes , the are out of bussines the have make a lot of good things [ i have a roof and backpanels for the peterbilt from it , great detail,s and good fit ] jacobus
  12. so change the frame and make it the right lengt for the wheelbase also looks of a put the cat in it ore change it for a cummins [ from the kenworth T 600 from revell ] this box so a dryfit from the total for the looks and the size of the fueltank,s and on one side with a airtank now also hope,s that it wil stop raining so than i can paint jacobus
  13. hello , first thing i have do is make the airbags and brake,s closed , revell have them open so i use a putty and when its good dry sand them in shape also put some primer on some parts and sand it smooth for the sleeper i make this already and paint it , than i make it compleet and tape it in for the rest of the sleeper otherwise i wil have a problem with the windows and now i can glue it and tape the top for the rest to paint i thing thats the best way to do it til the next time jacobus
