  1. TAT 2017-- 2010 Moebius LoneStar

    Revell has all the instructions on a data-base online and since they issued this lonestar as well....
  2. Kalmar Ottawa Yard Tractor

    Looking real good. Whit some extra time I could probably draw it and CNC mill the parts, but.... so many other things to do ;-)
  3. bottom dump trailer

    I was scrolling trough the topics and saw this one. I have been able to develop two bottom dump trailers. You can find them on our Fotki site: http://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/our_own_models_and/dmtc-members/hessel/in-progress-models/centerline-bottom-d/ http://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/our_own_models_and/dmtc-members/hessel/in-progress-models/xl-specialized-bd-t/ thanks for you replies.

  4. Custom model truck parts

    Get me some details and I will give it a try
  5. Mack Trident

    In the meanwhile I have finished the Mack for 99%. Still the fifth wheel needs to be installed. License plate and other minor detailing needs to be done. You can find all the photo's on our Fotki site: https://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/our_own_models_and/dmtc-members/hessel/in-progress-models/mack-trident/ Thanks for the reply's Hessel
  6. Mack Trident

    For a few months I have been working on an Australian Mack Trident. I have used the generic chassis of the US Italeri trucks and added an axle to it. The tanks are modified from Revell. The engine should be the Mack E7 but I decided to use the motor if the donor kit instead. The cab is a Auslowe resin one. First some base white and then a yellow colour was added. The wheels are a different storie. I decided to rework the wheels I had developed for the 'Conforti' Mack and also developed tires for that. I had them 3d printed. A dry fit with the wheels on it and the chassis painted dark gray. And in some later stage again a dry fit with the cab on the chassis. I have deleted a frame for the rear fenders. Parts are CNC milled and then fixed together. The Mack is about 90% ready. Still some parts have to be placed and some weathering needs to be done. Final photo's will be placed in time. The truck is intended in front of my TRT widening trailer.
  7. Conforti Mack DM821SX 03/11/17 update

    I did read that and feel flattered ;-) Koos sent me a message about your build so I looked it up. A link to all the photo's I took of my build: http://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/our_own_models_and/dmtc-members/hessel/in-progress-models/mack-dm800-conforti/ Hessel
  8. Conforti Mack DM821SX 03/11/17 update

    That's looking alright Dennis. As you stated the frame was made to get the right height for the fifth wheel. I had it CNC milled on my stepcraft. The wheels were developed by me and are 3d printed which makes the weight much less. Looking forward to the result. by the way: Jerre Reeter did the decals I used.
  9. Kenworth Wheels

    You could have them 3D printed.... I have developed some rims before and everything is possible. Hessel the Netherlands Europe
  10. Ford Turbine

    I would love more info about the prototype Turbine truck that Ford once made. If I want to contact Ford about it where would I go since they retired building big rigs. Would love the idea of making a scale model of this one. I have seen some photos on Facebook but any drawing or something in that kind would be a great help.
  11. Current truck aftermarket?

  12. Scania R730 8x4 Heavy Haulage Tractor - 1:24

    The kits was developed by Heinz Schwartz of the http://www.modelmakershop.com/modelmakershop/ with help from Guido Kehder. Guido is an excellent builder of all kinds of models. Visit his website if your interested. It's in German but on the left you will find models and models in progress. http://www.die-leitplanke.de Hessel
  13. bottom dump trailer

    Thanks anyway. I noticed the manufacturers do not supply info easy. I will never use info commercial. Also I will have to compromise in making the model to get it right. I hope someone else will lend a hand.... Hessel
  14. bottom dump trailer

    Thanks, this is our own site so I know these documents. Hessel
  15. bottom dump trailer

    Thanks for that. As you noticed I already have downloaded a lot of pics. Plans are to make one like the one in the last pic. Maybe a trailing like in the first. This depends on the info I can find. Hessel
