  1. i am stil workin on the mack

    first  i look at the rims and with a dril and knife i have very carefull remove the flash  [ you can see on the picture ]



    so if you paint the rim you can see the back of the wheel like it is


    i have been  [ for a while ] on the hunt and search for resin cab,s fro old european truck,s that was here in the netherland,s and germany and so

    the where very hard to find because the where make in very smal numbers

    like KRUPP with a cummins engine [ build in germany under licence ] and BUSSING with the unterflur engiene

    i must say i ended up in germany by a men how make the engine,s , and by my suprice i found also there some resincab,s

    like this MERCEDES LP , BUSSING and KRUPP

    so know you know why it bin so long before i workin on the MACK , now i am home to work on this old girl with fun







  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


  3. 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.  


  4. 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
