Boydie Posted April 25, 2022 Share Posted April 25, 2022 So this is gonna be my build of the Scania 143M. My father drove the same truck with the impressive sounding V8. So the idea is to build this for him and gift it to him once it's done. This is my start so far, I've put together the V8 and scratch built a few bits and pieces to it. It's hard getting decent reference photos of the engine but I'm happy with it so far, if I find better pictures then I'll more details to it in the future. I'll be modifying the cabin so it can be levered opened to access the engine compartment, just like how it is like on the real thing for maintenance. Dry fitting parts of the chassis, I'll be painting each part separately so thought it would be best to see how it fits together. Don't think they'll be too many problems here. Same with the cabin, dryfitted. I think this cabin is going to be a nightmare to put together, quite a big gap between the doors. I'm not sure how to tackle that. I think maybe paint the cabin inside first and finish that off first. Then somehow try and reduce the size of the gap with a bit of brute force and elastic bands. I'm open to ideas. 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
