RichEllis 2017 year book

Recommended Posts

Here is my year in builds, not a bad year, 4 completed. Ill do them in order of completing.

First off the bench was an 1/24 Italeri DAF 105 XF in the Swiss  company Schoni livery. Almost an OOB build, It has some KFS rubber low liner tyres as this is a max-cube truck, resin air-con pod on the roof and some adjustments to lower the ride height

Second is a scale drop, 1/35 trumpeter FAUN german tank transporter, I saw the real truck a few years ago working for ALE in Stafford. The decals are from a german company on EBay, mainly OOB exept for the ballast box. used some Eduard etch on this also.

Third is a build thats been going for a few years, completed this year its an AEC Mammoth MkV, the real truck was used on the M25 construction and had the cab from an RAF Blue Steel missile carrier grafted on when the original fell apart. These trucks where worked very hard untill they fell to bits, when they where welded back together and put bact to work! 1/24 scale using a resin cab, everything else is scratchbuilt. Lots of build photos here

last off the bench is a Revell 1/24 Iveco stralis Hi-way in the Italian livery of Gruber. This is another lowliner build using KFS rubber tyres, the chassis has been drilled out to copy the 1:1 with a lot of etch parts from CTM inside and out. Fully plumbed chassis. I went all out to detail this and its weathered to show a looked after but worked truck
