"OLD. BUT RUNS!" - Scania LB 141 Tractor

Recommended Posts

It’s been mix feelings with this Heller kit. But seeing that it was a very old kit and compromises were taken into account, I now learn my way around such discrepancies in this kit. All-in-all, it was an ‘OK’ build, despite my frustrations. Barlas Pehlivan, was also kind to help answer some of my annoying questions, concerning this kit. So kudos to him.
My apologies for the pics. I will take better ones later. It was very windy outside today and I could not get the right photos I wanted. Oh well, you can’t win every time. 🙂 Hope you enjoy the photos regardless.

I also added some wip photos o the interior, as it was difficult to get good shots of the interior after the roof and doors were install.

Looks awesome, Charles.  Fantastic weathering job.  What do the numbers (90, 80, 60) on the rear of the cab signify?  I've seen these on European trucks, and I've always wondered.

Wow. Just wow.

The realism and the detailing could be some of the best I've seen here.

Very, very impressive.

Thank you. Those numbers represent speed limits throughout the various European countries.

Thanks, Charles.  60km/h (37mph) doesn't seem very fast for a highway.

I know. But in Sweden, trucks are limited to 80 on a 100km/h road. Even less on lesser speed limit roads.

Absolutely fantastic, brilliant, really inspirational work, the attention to detail is second to none, a real show winner!!!

 Makes you just want to get in and drive it, but maybe not on the road though eh? still it reminds me of one we had where I worked for a while back in the 80s, that one was still just about road worthy. Anyway just brilliant!!!

Realistic looking and amazing.. 60km/h feels pretty fast behind steering wheel of truck in some norwegian highways.. :D Lots of nice details here and there, weathering is spot on... B)

Excellent weathering! The missing chunk of the tire is so realistic, all of the weathering of the interior and exterior looks realistic. A beautiful model.
