  3. Fageol Superliner/Road King

    This is a very interesting subject. And nice work so far. The engine modification looks geat.
  4. AMT Construction Bulldozer

    Very realistic! Awesome.
  5. Mack DM600

    Nice old piece of iron. Mack looks always good. A worn off work horse or bright shiny show truck, it´s always great.
  6. Finished at last! (almost)

    D Good old Seddon Atkinson. I like that. Never seen one though. Yours looks just fine.
  7. Kenworth SAR Double Road Train

    A very nice thing from down under. The truck, the trailers, the cargo… beatiful. KW SAR is one of the most attractive trucks to me. Nice!
  8. 1974 Kenworth K125

    Well, it is a bit confusing. While the sticker in the cab says K125, the final chassis bill of material says K123. The suspension photographed on the truck is factory delivered. The only item replaced is the airbags due to the aged rubber. Another replaced thing is the bumper and tail lights. Here is the pics of type designation and the truck condition before restoration, taken yet on American soil.
  9. Pete 377 Day Cab conversion?

    I´ve never seen this kind of a trailer. Looks like a cool thing to build. I´ll be watching.
  10. 1974 Kenworth K125

    Last week I had a close encounter with this beauty. A fellow countryman of mine and modeller has bought the real US truck - the 1974 Kenworth K100. OK, the label says K125, to be exact. He bought it in the USA and brought it over here to Europe. Its business days have long been gone. It was just sitting in a yard for some years. Now it is going to be one of the highlights of local truckshows. The truck condition was fairly good. The Cummins engine ran OK even after being off duty for a long time. The cab and frame showed some history through the different color layers and popping out ghost signs. Some repairs were ineviteble but all the major parts remained original. The engine, transmission and frame were repainted while the plan for the cab is to leave it as it is. The major part of restoration took a year but the small repairs continue on the go. The owner took his K125 with him to our regular model building meeting. Not only have I taken a lot of photos, but I also took a ride in it. Surprisingly, there was not as much noise in the cab as I would have expected. We could talk with no effort to do so. I remember the shouting conversations when riding with my father in his old Tatra truck. With no trailer coupled to the rig the ride was anything but smooth and comfortable. But the beating and shaking is what makes it so cool. Sometimes it was quite hard to make a turn as this truck was not designed for the cramped European streets. We had a lot of fun riding this old piece of iron but we also have the highest respect for the old generations of truckers who turned mile after mile after mile in trucks like this. I took a lot of photos, especially the model builder friendly details. Presented here are only some of them. Enjoy.

    Nice pair of earthmovers. Only a subtle weathering, no heap of mud with something yellow underneath it. Cool!
