VOLVO F7 Toter Truck for Mobile-homes

Recommended Posts

Hello, i am Juergen from germany.

Got finished my latest projekt.

A Volvo F7 Toter Truck.

I see this Truck in the Movie "Starman" wit a Mobile Home Trailer.

Based on an Italeri Magirus Firelader , i build this Volvo.

Chasis must be shorted, Cab was streched, Front must be made scratch,...   many parts must be built scratch,..

 

But now it is finished

WOW !!!! Juergen, I nearly missed this one, that is just superb, everything about it is just perfect, the detail and weathering is inspirational, its another model to look to while I am having a go at my next effort. You have done an absolutely fantastic job to turn that kit into that F7 ( how many hours I wonder?) its been worth every minute that's for sure.

As you have probably guessed I like it quite a lot, I suppose I have a bit of a soft spot for these old Volvo's as it was one of the first trucks I drove after passing my HGV class 1, they were a great little workhorse and had a spacious and comfortable cab, and you have captured the feel of this truck perfectly, ( it could be real ) fantastic work, looking forward to your next project.

Great job, that thing is perfect.

My favorite line from that move: "green means go, red means stop, and yellow means go very, very fast"

Great job on that truck.

Beautiful build. The weathering is spot on, and I love the name on the door! Very clever.;)

Outstanding work and detail, as others have said, the weathering is spot on.

I will sign under every word!  Beautifull!!!

I should learn to wether my models like that! 

The only minor thing I would weather a little more are the chaines.
