Heller 1/24 Scania LB 141


Recommended Posts

Hi all, haven't posted here in a while, been busy with Vietnam GB and Heller Classic GB. Just today I finished my Heller build which is the original boxing of the Scania LB 141. I just love the boxy look of this little truck and it was great fun building it. 

 

The box:

Sprues of this early boxing moulded in lovely red

and even lovelier yellow

And, because I got this kit used, and apparently previous owner wasn't too concerned about storing it properly, a nice little challenge too

I bought KFS rims and hubs and also an etch set with badges and lights from CTM. I used the wheels but skipped the etch, I'll use that for the next time I'm building this very nice vehicle. No question about that, I'm doing another one, I like it so much. 

 

When scouring the web for reference pics I came across a halfhearted attempt at restoration and I liked the idea very much.

Now you can see why I didn't need the badges 🙂 ... I loved the idea of the red primer so this became my goal! 

 

Here's the build thread: 

 

 

It's built almost completely OOB except for the wheels, some plumbing and wiring and the suzy rack which is not supplied in the kit.
