Some more work on the chassis.




It's a nicely detailed kit.

Hi all done a bit more to this super detailed chassis (Not done a truck before I'm amazed how much detail there is just in the chassis) I think I'm only about half way through it.

I've started on the cab also. I used foil on the roof

I think it looks too clean so I weathered it a bit and added some other details.

Hi all made a concerted effort on the chassis today, still a bit more to add (this really is a great kit I'm loving this as much as the London bus)

Done a bit more to this amazing kit, the fit of parts is perfect, they really have done a great job of this kit the parts are such a good fit I've used no glue on any of this part.

Hi all I love this kit, the fit is exceptionally good and the detail is great, again no glue 


I tried a failed experiment the instructions say aluminium for this part so I tried aluminium foil

Yes I could try again but there are far more complex bits that have an aluminium background and this looks awful so I think I will use paint (although the ally doors will be simple enough with foil)

Hi all I'm wondering if on the real thing these compartments are hinged some how

After adding this detail the other bit fits over the top like this

There are handles at the bottom of the outer shelving I'm wondering if I can some how make the parts hinged to show all the detail, there is loads of shelving like this and it would be a shame to hide all the detail.
Yes I could just not glue them so they are removable but I would like to try and make them as they are on the real thing.

Hi all here is the next update, I would really love to add lighting to this but can’t find leds small enough.


It’s a good job I’ve not glued the cab on yet as I’ve missed some painting

Hi all here's another update, I thought I could improve this bit so I cut the moulded on straps off and made some of my own





Then I thought to myself I can improve on that too.



I do think my bench is getting quite full (and this is not all I'm working on)



Here's an assortment of the accessories so far made for this.
