    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....

    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.

    I have seen their websites. I'm looking for a single one. Three axle preferred. Cross gate are clamp is an issue that is no that important. We want to try and make a kit of it in scale 1:24/25.

    thanks,

    bottom dump trailer
    I have plans to develop a bottom dump trailer. But living in Europe I cannot measure one out to have it accurate. Is there anyone who can help me with this. On the website of Hayworth equipment (Acheson, Alberta, Canada) is a nice side drawing of Loadline cross gate trailer I think would be a nice trailer. I have contacted them but they said they did not have any other info. A front photo would help some but a drawing in that kind would really be welcome.

    Hope someone can help, thanks.

    With DMTC we have done the same thing with the container chassis. It is still available as a CNC milled kit.

    Jan Rosecky is a friend of DMTC. We meet the guys every year in Jabbeke at the modeling show there. They are honest and fair guys who do their business in a good way. Any problems will be solved. They are wonderful builders as well. No worries

    My friend Kees Kamp is also working on a CBE. That one will be completely scratch and even better then the one in the photo.

    The show was as always very good. It was the 20th time it was organized and now for the third time in the new place. This means the shows grows bigger every year. The quality of the build also rises. Unfortunately no price for my Mack but that is not a shame. I like it very much and that is the most important.

    If we had a good sponsor we would join a show in California of course

    Last weekend we went to the 'On the Road' exhibition in Jabbeke, Belgium. The maiden show for the Mack



    All models were photographed as well. André de Vries and Kees Kamp did a nice job. Have a look:

    This is the reissue of a really old kit. The fitting is pretty bad. The photo does not do right to the hood closing. In reality it's not that worse. In fact I only discovered it after I saw the photo. In the meantime the front decal are there as well.

    I'm not familiar with the Jabbeke history of a Jaguar.

    I would love to maken the Roger trailer that is behind it but unfortunately I do not have the right info about it. If someone has please let me know. I might be able to make a kit of it.....

    thanks,

    Last week I had a week holiday. This gave me time to get some things done. The Mack is now ready for 90%. Some decals need to be placed and some minor painting needs to be done. With pretty nice weather I took the opportunity to make some photo's.











    In two weeks it will be in Jabbeke.
