  15. Dan its a very big project , like this and many more , now moving to a other place and sorted out jacobus
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
