      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

Truck Axle Service Vignette

Recommended Posts

This is a quick vignette I made in-between my current major truck build. Yes, I have been doing quite a lot of them lately. I wanted something to take with me to the GGG exhibition in Sweden, in two weeks time. So I came up with this after seeing a pic on the net. I used parts, which I modified to be able to get the open rear axle effect I wanted. I have lots of 1/24 parts left over from older builds, which I’ve discarded over the years. Hope you all like it.

Excellent! All the weathering and little details really add to it. I like the cut-off U-bolts and the fluid in the housing.

What's not to like? This is a fantastic example of every part of a model being a model itself. Very, very well done!

Absolutely brilliant detail Charles, and what a perfect way to make use of parts that would just sit in boxes and probably never get used. Good luck with the GGG exhibition in Sweden when you go there.

The only detail I would add here is some fasteners where the wooden  cross boards on the pallet where they meet the 4 by 4's.
