  1. Oxford do lots, modern and older but also give Road Transport Images LINK a look, they do resin kits and you buy the chassis, cab, body and wheels septal you can configure exactly what you want. Again old and modern stuff including decals
  2. Both mine are the same grey as the chassis. Most of the time they don’t get masked off when the chassis is painted after it leaves the factory.
  3. That is lovely. Do like the effects. One of my favourite foreign trucks is that big old Scanny
  4. I’ve got a 1:76 resin kit of the Half cab I can get pics and measurements off until I am close to the 1:1 again
  5. Aston Manor Road Transport museum has a few Birmingham buses, and I’d recommend a visit. some pics from last year’s running day https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.742711956184849&type=3
  6. You could try De-Rooy as I’m sure they did lots of Dakar DAF conversions
  7. Yep, and I’ve written for truck model world lots, and did the news and some reviews for them. Think someone from guideline has called me already
  8. That’s a great truck to build, a friend has a mk1 mid-lift and I had a drive and it’s a cracking truck. I plan to do a model of his at some point. There is a company in France (arm) that do the suspension in resin (could have saved breaking two kits open) not great quality but OK. I’ll be watching this. makes me feel old but I remember when the AE was launched
  9. Plates are right a 72/3 car registered in East Sussex
  10. I converted the old Tamiya Volvo to RHD, had to chop and change the dash as there aren’t any suppliers doing conversions for cars.
  11. This is a nice build, like the look of these light Petes after seeing a few on gold rush
  12. I’ve got a nice private plate on my car too. I changed my name by depol to DV05XJF.
  13. That’s nice, but the plate is wrong, an 03 would be the old new shape. come on revell and italeri!
  14. Yes, and modified the truck slightly! changed to right hand drive, new light bar on the roof and sun visor. Also changed the rear lights to look more like the Arocs ones
  15. Nice. I have a few of the larger sets, the Mercedes truck, large Volvo loader and the Volvo wheeled excavator
  16. Hi, I’ve got a fantastic KFS milky kit, I’ve seen some pics of them with a 5th wheel in a tractor unit setup. Pics and info are scarce so what did it pull? Any one any pics or info? thanks
  17. Emek are plastic, they come apart easily and do combine with Italeri chassis well. Emek cabs are spot on, but the chassis is basic so ideal to combine the two. italeri will do the Scania S, but who knows when that will be
  18. It says Italeri or Emek on the description. Most are available from italeri except the new gen scanias.
