MB Actros MP2, MP3 Lowliner

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

 

Today i show you my recently build of 2 Mercedes Benz Actros Lowliners.

The base kit was an Italeri MP2, a Revell MP3 kit and for the trailer an Italeri Canvastrailer, wat is completeley modified to a big volume trailer.

Both cabines are modified to a L-size, engine is modified from V8 to V6 and the lowrider tyres are bought by KFS.

I hope u enjoy this big completed project.

I can't decide which is better; the realistic builds or the realistic photos! Excellent builds, and your photo skills are fantastic!

Personally I'm usually not a fan of European style trucks, but your builds blow me away. They are AWESOME!!!! They are incredibly realistic!! Excellent work with both the builds and photography!!!

Can this be any better? I have my doubts. The models are terrific  and photos are awesome. Really good job.

What great work, I had to look at the trucks a few times  and I am still not sure if they are real or models.  They are brilliant you should be proud of your work|
