  1. wel guy,s i have a little stop , rebuilding a part of the room and than put a kind of rack to place as first about 100 models on it  if its not more, these are 1:50 and 1:43

    so than have i more room in the hobbyroom  becouse the are al stil in boxes , the stash of these models was to big , and was no place to do normal walk ore moving

    i hope in a few day,s i am ready with this

    and than so further with the Krupp


  2. Hello , i am so sorry but the Mack wil not ready on time

    he is already in the primer and some things are already good 

    biggest problem is the paintjob , first time it go,s wrong [ to cold i think ]

    cleaned , new primer and now i wait for some higher temperatur

    i wil look for those that already finnished and some lookin great 

    i wil finnish him next year but not for the planned date

    wish you al the best fore 2022 and a lot of healty time,s and fun to this great hobby

    yours , jacobus 

  3. 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







  4. 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
