  1. Realistically it's probably a bit too far gone
  2. Foden S21. Not everyone build planes
  3. I'll be watching, have you looked at some of the aoshima bus kits? They may supply more useful bit for the build

  5. A local railway had a gala running day today, industrial engines both steam and diesel (and petrol) a few I took DSC_0058 by richellis1978, on Flickr DSC_0056 by richellis1978, on Flickr DSC_0053 by richellis1978, on Flickr DSC_0045 by richellis1978, on Flickr
  6. how about one of the very last pigs? DSC_0041 by richellis1978, on Flickr Not seen a reliant for ages, then 2 today DSC_0054_LI by richellis1978, on Flickr
  7. Looks good, I'd get the bumpers pulled in to the body a bit for the Cali look!
  8. If you are on Facebook look for and follow UK barn Finds for some very cool stuff
  9. wow, 2 updates in 2 days! Today I added some resin bolts to the chassis for detail, and some flitch plates to the chassis also, nothing too square or accurate as I want the 'fixed in the field' look to a used and abused look for a truck that wouldn't see the road again Untitled by richellis1978, on Flickr I have also cut the grill away and added some mesh, and the trim. Ive drilled some holes in the front of the cab, to look like some missing trim but I'm not convinced and I think they will be filled in as the effect doesn't work for me Untitled by richellis1978, on Flickr Inside the cab has now got a seat, steering wheel and column, some detail to be added yet but its looking like a cab now Untitled by richellis1978, on Flickr Untitled by richellis1978, on Flickr back to work for the day tomorrow so no modelling for me!
  10. Now here is my 2p.......... 20, blimey it is 20 years ago I was at a model show. There was a truck model and the builder had converted the model from a 2 axle, to a 3 axle tractor unit. It was a good looking model and the modeller had done a good job, not an accurate twin steer Scania set up, but he had done it him self with skills and parts he made and from his spares box. 2 modellers next to me, one pointed 'Would be better if he had used the (company name) resin conversion set' I always remember that. It left a bitter taste that he wasn't celebrated for crafting parts and using his skills but belittled for not sticking a resin conversion set together.
  11. Moving this along a bit, Ive added a few extras to the cab AEC half cab build by richellis1978, on Flickr AEC half cab build by richellis1978, on Flickr I'm happy with the metal foil bonnet as its bent and battered nicely with handling while working on the cab, Ive added the mirror arms, the passenger side one will be missing, but the driver will have one. the indicators have both been broken off so the base, some wires and bits are there, they will be painted later to make them stand out. I scratch made a door handle for the cab door and need to drill out the headlight as that will be missing too, as will some trim so Ill be adding some holes to show missing fixings. there are some 'repairs' to the cab, they are not good repairs, but I want it to look rough! AEC half cab build by richellis1978, on Flickr AEC half cab build by richellis1978, on Flickr AEC half cab build by richellis1978, on Flickr AEC half cab build by richellis1978, on Flickr The cab is on the chassis, all axles are in place and Ive started detailing the chassis, some plumbing has been started, with the engine, diesel and hydraulic tanks in place The bumper is foil and I keep bending it, and having to bend it back to shape! The chassis needs lots of work yet, and I think the tipper will have a plastic frame with foil parts so it can be battered as the real trucks where.
  12. Now that is nice, had a mk3 VR in the past and it was a lovely car! Your model looks spot on!
  13. That looks so 'right' let's hope someone from DAF see it!
  14. Don't see one for ages, then 2 working ERFs in a week. Probably the rarest vehicle in this thread, not many sold new, not seen one on the road for a long long time ERF ES6 by richellis1978, on Flickr
  15. Ok, how quick will this turn political?
