Truck Renovation...

Hi all,

I managed to find this a few years ago in a charity shop, it used to be a remote control but all the electrics had been removed, anyway, it's been sat in my loft for some time and I thought I'd give it a fresh look...

This is how it used to look, it's not painted, it's just shiny black plastic...

I then painted in some lights and used the Micro Kristal Klear for the lens...

I haven't seen too many scale T2000's. Except for the De'Elegant kit and some 1:32 toys. So this is a good save, nice job!

It did come with a trailer, I'm going to have a go at turning it in to a flat-bed trailer, so I can then try and make some cargo for it...

Hi all,

I've just finished the trailer...

To start with...

Stripped down...

I used two pieces of thin Balsa for the new bed...

Flatbed6.jpg

Taped up so I could paint the edges, the head-board is also made from Balsa wood...
