Revisiting old friends

Posted (edited)

The enforced idleness of Covid19 gave me the opportunity to delve into some kits I've had for 3-4 years. I saw some 1/32 Revell Monogram Snap Tite kits in a model shop in England and I couldn't resist them. I'd built quite a few in the early 80s and ended up giving them away when I moved into my own home. You can see the original version of this kit on a shelf in the photo of my bedroom taken in the 80s. Sadly, this is the release with the vinyl stickers rather than decals so I didn't use them. Just sprayed the cab white using a rattle can. I also adjusted the mudflaps because the look rather like sails in all these kits, also I relocated the quarter fenders a little closer to the axle. Made a visor out of aluminium sheet too!

They're not bad little kits, take up less room than 1/25 kits and look fairly good with a little work. They're commanding unbelievable prices on Ebay! 

Trying to figure out a fix for the 5th wheel with its pin instead of the jaws. Spoils the whole look. 

I think I've put this in the wrong topic, don't know how to move it.  My apologies.
