hello , first thing i have do is make the airbags and brake,s closed , revell have them open so i use a putty and when its good dry sand them in shape

also put some primer on some parts and sand it smooth

for the sleeper i make this already and paint it , than i make it compleet and tape it in for the rest of the sleeper

otherwise i wil have a problem with the windows and now i can glue it and tape the top for the rest to paint

hello , i think there is a curse on this built , everytime i fix some things something else get broken

put the wheels on axle broken [ BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH material revell !!! ] so first dril al out and make metal axle,s before the other,s get broken

hood looks not good on hight , don,t know how that,s possible but the front wheel looks in my eyes not correct , so change the hinges

and so struggle on on this built

1 step forward and 2 back , now i hope that it wil go a little better

til the next update whit the picture,s of a hopeful normal model ore W.I.P.

  Jacobus ,

            Looking forward to seeing your in pogress photos !

As for the Corona Virus thing slowing down package delivery. I heard from a friend. That the Us Post Office is not even accepting parcels for the Philippines.

But that may change this month. And when I order stuff it takes a couple of months to get to me . You guys are lucky to get thing so quickly !

 

  Be Well

Thank,s Gator 

have make some changes , extend the chassis for 4 fueltank,s [ 2 both side,s 

now i think what wheels i put on , normal ore spokes

paint already the chassis and the picture,s wil follow [ if the camera wil work  he have some faults now ]

and also a big clean up in my room . so much to sort out of the part,s [ like fueltank,s - wheel,s and tyre,s - suspensions , - engine,s and a big pile of transkits , i didnt  know that i have such big pile of it - if i see more than 50 you think that i am crazy ]

and a lot of kit,s from AMT - ITALERI , REVELL ETC ETC  about 350 boxes so ppfff now a put the european on one side and usa on the other but thats a terrible job

but i love it to see what i have 

also a bunch of trailers and car,s 

and the worst must stil come , about more than 1000 diecast model,s from scale 1:43 and 1:50 and 1:87 to sort out
