hi guys,

i am Christiaan, and live in The Netherlands.

I am building the Revell Lonestar, and must say it's an great model. Thanks to Moebius of course.

First i wanted to build it straight out of the box, but changed some things after all.

Now i am working on the interior.

I think he meant you could give us pointers, not US pointers. I am not sure we can offer any tips or tricks, you have done a great job and that truck looks great.

Thanks for posting and welcome to the forum.

That's what I meant, sorry! What's fun about this forum is that we can pick up little and bigger tricks we didn't think about. We get to see high quality builds here, like this Lonestar.

Yes, the maxxforce decal is part of the box.

The revell instructions are very good and easy to follow.

The interior is ready. But i made an mistake to glue the backpanel of the cab on it's place before the interior.

That's wrong but my mistake.

Now i had to take it apart and put the top and sides seperatly in the cab and glued them.

Looks as though you have things well in hand...... I'm waiting for some putty to cure on mine right now; can't wait to sling some paint.

Would it be wrong to have the Revell instruction booklet from be shown around here? Copyright problems would arise wouldn't they? I think it would be a great help to some Moebius kit owners...

Is this normal for a lonestar, such an big gap between the hood and cab?

Great job so far on the paint scheme, and you attention to detail is amazing. I always have to give everyone who builds these trucks overseas a little extra credit because of the fact that with most of us on the board here from Canada/US we really dont have far to go to see a 1:1 referance on most builds or at least something close, where over there in the Netherlands for example I dont think it too common to see seeing a 379 peterbilt running up and down the road there, or a western star etc. So they have to work a little bit harder and get a little more creative, and for that I give you that extra bit of well deserved credit. Great build so far and I cant wait to see the final product!

Thanks James for your nice words.

Finally it's finished. The last pieces were the hardest to get clean and straight on the truck.

But i must say it is by far the best kit i've ever built and i really hope Moebius brings out many more.

As you can see on the decals next thing is the Revell Beall tanker.
