    Yes, so you said further back. That's not in the least surprising with all the parts you have, anyone would have the same problem now and again. But all the same, you have it all well organised.

      the merc's are ready for the biggest part,just to spray the mudscreens of the frontaxle,and placing the engine.
      i spray them together with the cab,so that they get the same layers of paint,so it wil be the same shade of green.

            Looking at #212.2 and #213.1 before reading your last remark I was thinking that the way you've done those shots shows the immense amount of time and effort you put into it. And the pics. showing the final result will indicate how well worth while it all is. Good on ya!

              It's those small details that makes all the difference. The Merc logo on the side and the blue cover on the tank (?).

                thank you.

                well the problem i have with the merc,is that WSI don't place antenna's on there models,so i ordered tekno model antenna's of a scania,that looks a lot of the merc.
                another problem is,when the driver calls me,he said that he placed chrome wheelcovers at the transmision axle.
                so i have to replace them at 1 model,and then i made a call to him,whats looking best,while he got 2 red axle's and a chrome one.
                so when i got the antenna's i can colorspray them.

                every ''ad-bleu'' tank have a bleu cover (i thought that it was called a lid),so that you can't make mistake about what have to be filled with.

                i had done some things at the ''marcel vink'' model,exhaust and tank,but BIG problems.

                the left model as the kit is deliverd,all kits are the same.
                the right side is how it have to be.
                nothing wrong you say?
                just place the other one at the right side.
                yeah right



                so this is the way the kits have to be build.
                btw the tank is sparyed a kind of silver,to give it a iron color look.

                  here are the exhaust and the tank placed on the right side.

                      Re: Any model vehicle collectors out there?

                      Can't you take that part to bits so that you can reverse the position of the exhaust, battery and bleu tank? Or are they all welded together so well as a unit that you can't cut it up? I'm sure you'll sort it out. You're just keeping quiet about it until you have got it right and will show us.

                        the hole exhaust is 1 piece Ivy,ecept the catwalk, the protectionbar for ad bleu lid ad the upstep.

                        exhaust,ad-bleu and battery box is 1 piece,you can't sepperate it,the only way is cut it in half,but you wil need 2 exhausts for it.
                        so i won't do anything with it.
                        i'll ask Marcel which way he prefer and there i wil place the exhaust.

                                get me more parts last evening,chrome rims,catwalks,big diesel tanks and 75 antenna's in 3 differend models
                                also the bad news that my decalmaker is more or less stopping making decals.
                                his printer is walking on its last legs,so new clients getting no,old clients old decals yes,new decals maybe.
                                and i need new type decals.
