      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Old truck build - Unimog 401S

Hi,

Here some pictures of my Lassen Project Unimog 401S. The model was build in 2000/2001 as a entry for the B'ham Classic in 2001.

This kit from Lassen is the best ever produced truck model. The Buessing and Krupp from Revell/Germany are similar, but not the best!

Beautiful!

I get to see the occasional 1:1 around here and I swear I'd buy one if I had the money.

Nice looking Uni you built. I got to operate one for a couple of years while working for a Mercedes dealer and they were awesome no matter what I was doing- plowing snow, using the endloader or the forklift- but I did have a much stronger left leg due to the clutch they out in there!

I have the Revell version with the snowplow that I want to build some day soon.

Great model, and by it's familiarity I think I looked at it back in Birmingham when you showed it. All the details work so well, you can stare at a model like this for a long time and keep finding more treasures 8)

What a great looking truck. The weathering and little display are superb. The Unimog has a good reputation for its ability to go just anywhere and do anything. Here in the UK they are very popular in Agriculture, for obvious reasons.

Great Work.

Best Wishes
