  1. Hi, guys. This is a tough one. I had some of my best builds on a permanent display in the local technical museum. Unfortunatelly, a burglar broke in and the glass case with my truck models stood in his way. He destroyed the glass gate and tried to push the display case off his way. But it fell on the ground and in the heap of glass fragments were the rermains of my spilled models. The museum has an insurance and I will get some compensation. But most likely it won´t cover the time and work spent on them. At first glance they look repairable. But it´s gonna take a lot of time again.
  2. I am bringing a bad news, I´m afraid. Pavel Behensky aka Stratomodels has announced his withdrawal from the big rig transkit "business" on his FB site. He says that it brings too many problems, it´s time and money consuming and he is tired of it all. Some projects won´t be finished, including the GMC Crackerbox and local Tatra 815. With Pavel you never know, but for the time being he concentrates on Czechoslovakian aircraft models.
  3. Just a question. I was told that the AMT kit headlights are too small and that they should be slightly bigger. True or false? What do you guys think?
  4. I finally found the pics of my version. It´s not accurate but at least a bit closer to reality. You can see the comparison between the kit part and mine.
  5. I have never built the 352 but I have built the 359 which shares the chassis parts with the 352. 1) The part is very simplified and doesn´t look realistic at all. I have scratchbuilt my own part. If I can suggest, take a look at a picture of a real height control valve set up in a truck and either scratchbuild the thing on your own or don´t use it at all. Just my opinion. 2) If a pin of any part makes the part fit wrong I just cut it off. If you think that the pin position is OK, then insert a piece of plastic in the gap.
  6. This is a very interesting subject. And nice work so far. The engine modification looks geat.
  7. Nice old piece of iron. Mack looks always good. A worn off work horse or bright shiny show truck, it´s always great.
  8. D Good old Seddon Atkinson. I like that. Never seen one though. Yours looks just fine.
