    Re: Any model vehicle collectors out there?

    a model of a truck,which i build 3 of them,of my former boss.started some years ago with them,but not much in to completing them.

    now i have all the decals i can finish them,but i'm having plroblems with the clear varnish.
    i'ts drying into yellow.left one is a unsprayed trailer,the middle the sprayed and yellow colored and the right one is one that i made a few years ago and is still white.





    and they have to be white ,as is to seen on the original trailer

      What will you do about the yellowish one? Is the varnish you used for the one on the right still obtainable?

        they had it out of the shop,and replace this for another one,but not of through my complains.
        i'm having this problem with it for about 2 years when it started,but having some cans i hope that the batch wasused in the shop when i need new ones.
        but the last time it still happens.so went there monday and they say that they have a new brand,and that i have to try this.
        but there didn't stand on it ofit was on acqua base or thinner base,so after a call to the wholesale it was thinnerbase.
        so they send them back for acqua cans.
        we need them on acqua base ,while thinner base varnish is to agressive for the watertransfers.(stickers)

        wel or i leave it this way and keep it for my own,or get the paint of,and start all over again.

          Mmm-mmm. More hard work if you start again. But if you finish the others maybe you'll feel like tackling it.

                      yes a few weeks i sprayed the hauler with it,and it turned out brown again,so have to go back to the shop.

                      meanwhile i was yesterday at the DAF garage,while i was driving a daf for 2 days,(but back on the merc now) and i bought me a model of the brandnew DAF XF.

                      this is the demo of the factory,in this livery it is shown to the puplic

                              that also means ,that when my collection still grows,but my display cabinet don't ,one of the dusty models have to go,to somewhere alse
                              and because it's a model of a demo from the DAF factory it has to come at this shelff



                              i out,the model which issn't a demo has to go,wesley happy he can borrow a model of the company he works for.



                              but i have to do some dusting again,darn cheap diplay cabinet.
