Hi Folks, new here and wondered if I could draw on your big rig expertise a little if I may? So I really wanted one of these for my 1/48 FJ-3 Fury diorama (desperately) it’s just Sooo cool. I’ve taken the Atlantis re-pops of the old Revell Chevy stake truck and the Fruehauf trailer from the White fueler and smushed them together as follows… Mods have included removing and remounting the front fender as a separate entity, mirrors, shortening the chassis a bit, taking the skirt off the trailer, etc.- there’s a way to go yet. The headlights are going to be nose studs from a jewellery store with the facets sanded off and polished. The mirrors are made from laminate. Atlantis’s new glazing parts are superb for the Chevy, hats off to them. The wheels for the Stake Truck were a little agricultural for the paved airfields where this truck would have plied its trade , so I turned the White truck tyres to 9” high road tyres on the lathe then turned the 22.5” rims from Defmodel’s resin set for the Tamiya GMC army truck. I think they really beef up the tractor. Is it an ‘57 8400 do you think? It’s lovely hard plastic- polishes up beautifully. So used to the softish modern grey stuff! Ah yes - expertise please, if you could? Top photograph (the only one in existence as far as I can tell) you can see immediately behind the cab there’s a tank and a load of hydraulic or air lines. Anyone seen a setup like this before? Gas for the tractor unit? Exhaust baffle system? Compressed air? Pump unit for the trailer? Any answers will be gratefully received as it’ll need scratchbuilding. Thanks for looking, I’ll keep you posted on progress cheerio, Matt

Hello friends Being the first jet fighter jet in the world to enter service, my duty had to be to have it in my collection. Although it was late his introduction in service could have recovered the air supremacy for the Luftwaffe in the Second World War. The model is from the Revell brand at 1/48 scale. https://youtu.be/CJK4ZyCcjqE Greetings and I hope you like mates
Good friends Here I bring you one of my first dioramas that I made several years ago. The main model is the F-16C Fighter Fighting Falcon which is being reviewed by operators. The whole set is made to 1/48 scale of the Hasegawa brand. To make this representation I wanted to include a set of missiles and another of track technicians. https://youtu.be/i0uWAmTss2c Greetings and I hope you like it
