  1. 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


  2. 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.  


  3. 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


  4. 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
