    A little colour help please for a newbie to cars

    Halfords will mix off the code, and some auto paint suppliers will do it off the reg
  6. This is completed now, its an Italeri Scania cut to a low roof day cab, scratch built chassis with KFS axles and suspension and the fantastic KFS hook loader set, this works and pick and tips the skip as the real truck does. Decals from DodgersDecals on Facebook, highly recomended.

    Scania Hookloader

    The body is now glued to the chassis, its all still clean as I want the truck to look fairly new, but the skip is filthy! Untitled by richellis1978, on Flickr Untitled by richellis1978, on Flickr Untitled by richellis1978, on Flickr
  10. Calling this done, I need some clear orange paint to do the lights, and the number plates are on order. Brush painted as the power to my shed is broken. Should be a start to a few bus company ancillary vehicles I plan to make WMPTE Land Rover swb Completed in 1/24 by richellis1978, on Flickr WMPTE Land Rover swb Completed in 1/24 by richellis1978, on Flickr WMPTE Land Rover swb Completed in 1/24 by richellis1978, on Flickr Was an ESCI LWB, I cut 20mm out of the middle but didnt alter the rear overhang, Decals from DodgersDecals. I filled the back with tools and bits that cant be seen through the windows! Next up will be a Merseyside PTE transit Mk2

    Scania Hookloader

    Bit more done today, last bit of modelling before Truckfest prep tomorrow for Sunday and Monday. Decals have arrived and I got the hook loader painted and the skip bin painted. Its all been decaled ready to gloss coat next week before its weathered. The decals are spot on, the white ones are straight on the black and they look good (DodgersDecals on Facebook) Ive lost the side windows for the cab so Ill get a kit from the stash so I can copy them on clear plasticard, and the cab interior needs detailing with the debris normally found in a truck cab (the Sun, hard hat, pop etc) DSC_0006 by richellis1978, on Flickr DSC_0005 by richellis1978, on Flickr The skip body is resin, and I added the panels for the company name from foil (takeaway tin) and bent it and bashed it to look abused DSC_0004 by richellis1978, on Flickr Im looking for stuff to fill the skip, Ill pop a false floor in about half inch down from the top so Ive not got to fill it all!

    If I’ve a small project, or it’s at a good point in the build I’ll take it in the truck, I’ll decal this on a 45, and gloss coat when I park for the night as long as it’s not raining!
