  1. I have just finished the Hino HH with dumptrailer. Your model looks realy nice
  2. Minimanfactory also have a Kraz 955B resin kit. Very nice casting. Rare model for you but should be in many collections. It's in mine ? http://www.minimanfactory.com/en/kraz-255b-russian-6x6-heavy-truck-1-25-i33/ Hessel
  3. Don't know it this came around here. Minimanfactory makes this very limited Oshkosh M911. http://www.minimanfactory.com/en/m911-8x6-heavy-equipment-tractor-i53/ Hessel
  4. I could have them 3d printed. Orderable at shapeways. What tire would you use?
  5. Where can I get that PE. I have a resin conversion of the CAT but love that PE
  6. We might have some spare-parts if parts of the trailer are broken Jacobus.
  7. Really good looking, but..... I would consider other wheels/tires for the truck. The trailer has really detailed one's but the kit tires don't look right now.
  8. Curious about the trailer....... https://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/our_own_models_and/dmtc-members/hessel/finished-models/xl-specialized-bd-t/ Hessel
  9. Revell has all the instructions on a data-base online and since they issued this lonestar as well....
  10. Looking real good. Whit some extra time I could probably draw it and CNC mill the parts, but.... so many other things to do ;-)
  11. I was scrolling trough the topics and saw this one. I have been able to develop two bottom dump trailers. You can find them on our Fotki site: http://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/our_own_models_and/dmtc-members/hessel/in-progress-models/centerline-bottom-d/ http://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/our_own_models_and/dmtc-members/hessel/in-progress-models/xl-specialized-bd-t/ thanks for you replies.

  12. In the meanwhile I have finished the Mack for 99%. Still the fifth wheel needs to be installed. License plate and other minor detailing needs to be done. You can find all the photo's on our Fotki site: https://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/our_own_models_and/dmtc-members/hessel/in-progress-models/mack-trident/ Thanks for the reply's Hessel
  13. For a few months I have been working on an Australian Mack Trident. I have used the generic chassis of the US Italeri trucks and added an axle to it. The tanks are modified from Revell. The engine should be the Mack E7 but I decided to use the motor if the donor kit instead. The cab is a Auslowe resin one. First some base white and then a yellow colour was added. The wheels are a different storie. I decided to rework the wheels I had developed for the 'Conforti' Mack and also developed tires for that. I had them 3d printed. A dry fit with the wheels on it and the chassis painted
  14. I did read that and feel flattered ;-) Koos sent me a message about your build so I looked it up. A link to all the photo's I took of my build: http://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/our_own_models_and/dmtc-members/hessel/in-progress-models/mack-dm800-conforti/ Hessel
  15. That's looking alright Dennis. As you stated the frame was made to get the right height for the fifth wheel. I had it CNC milled on my stepcraft. The wheels were developed by me and are 3d printed which makes the weight much less. Looking forward to the result. by the way: Jerre Reeter did the decals I used.
  16. You could have them 3D printed.... I have developed some rims before and everything is possible. Hessel the Netherlands Europe
  17. I would love more info about the prototype Turbine truck that Ford once made. If I want to contact Ford about it where would I go since they retired building big rigs. Would love the idea of making a scale model of this one. I have seen some photos on Facebook but any drawing or something in that kind would be a great help.
  18. Aftermarket stuff: http://www.czechtruckmodel.com/cateur.php http://www.modelmakershop.com/web/ Hessel
  19. The kits was developed by Heinz Schwartz of the http://www.modelmakershop.com/modelmakershop/ with help from Guido Kehder. Guido is an excellent builder of all kinds of models. Visit his website if your interested. It's in German but on the left you will find models and models in progress. http://www.die-leitplanke.de Hessel
  20. Thanks anyway. I noticed the manufacturers do not supply info easy. I will never use info commercial. Also I will have to compromise in making the model to get it right. I hope someone else will lend a hand.... Hessel
  21. Thanks for that. As you noticed I already have downloaded a lot of pics. Plans are to make one like the one in the last pic. Maybe a trailing like in the first. This depends on the info I can find. Hessel
  22. I have seen their websites. I'm looking for a single one. Three axle preferred. Cross gate are clamp is an issue that is no that important. We want to try and make a kit of it in scale 1:24/25. thanks, Hessel
  23. I have plans to develop a bottom dump trailer. But living in Europe I cannot measure one out to have it accurate. Is there anyone who can help me with this. On the website of Hayworth equipment (Acheson, Alberta, Canada) is a nice side drawing of Loadline cross gate trailer I think would be a nice trailer. I have contacted them but they said they did not have any other info. A front photo would help some but a drawing in that kind would really be welcome. Hope someone can help, thanks.
