    drill the rivits out,and when every part is painted again,reassembly them with gleu.
    i reckon you don't play with them anymore,just for the show,so the gleu will hold.
    i have done that to with some models,gleu is strong nowadays.

      Thanks Thijs. I have a lot to think about right now but will keep this as a project for the future.

    Here's a feature of these models I had completely forgotten about :


    That's a little flash-lamp on top, facing down into two special light-tubes.


    And this is what it looks like in the dark!

    Only the red van does this. The white one just has silver paint for headlamps.

        Clipper, when you have everything sorted and you know where you are again, that restoration will certainly be something to tackle. Well worth doing.

          though is should place some decals (i want to do a lot those 3 weeks of holliday ,that i have now,yes you're all stock with me the next 3 weeks) i didn't feel much for it to do. sunday afternoon.
          instead i painted a stone trailer,they are grey and have to be black.
          1 trailer toke me the whole afternoon,and stil some things to repaint,but thisis the result.
          the grey one without the cran is the Original,the black one the painted.

              last saterday there was a truckshow not far away,there i bought those.



              3 renault magnum trucks and a patato trailer as we call them ,but they discharged the patatoo's by a convaier??? band or moving band from the back.
              this trailer is for a friend who needs it for a client of his,the trucks are for me,
              1 stay in the show case and the others for rebuilding them.the model i make of a menure truck ,the company owner ask me to build them for him to,about 10 models.
              had surch for them and could buy 10 trucks and trailers,called him this afternoon ,he was just intrested in the price,which i don't gave in advantage.
              but told him ''not under the 100,00euro's a piece.''
              oh ,not intrested anymore.
              thats nice spending many hours to found them,and he want them for less that what i have to spend for those models.

                Do you take a higher price, when you have to buid up a Renault instead of a Daf? Or is it the same price, becauseYves has birthday today? (Vive la France)

                  i take the price which i have to pay for.
                  in this case if he wanted the renault's which i buyed for 20,00 a model,i let him pay 35,00 euro's aswel.
                  because it's on my plate when with disassemble parts break,and there are no spare parts for,so i have to use another model for that part alone.
                  when every part got loose from it complete i have to remove the paint,a lot of extra hours for that too.
                  plastic parts can't go in the paintremover,so not the easyest way to built them as a serie model,
                  but you don't see them much,so it was a intresting model.
                  if he wanted a DAF (they only drive DAF and Renault and a single Mercedes) they costs 35,00euro too,but there i can start from scratch.
                  so can do it on 2 ways,make the cheap model price higher,or make the building costs higher.
                  i hardly make any money on modelbuilding,but i don't want to loose money .

                    So you are a real socialist. Each truck has the same price. You're the best example for all those producers. No prefers for origin, reputation, test reports. Very good! I am proud of you! So everyone has it's own truck as the best!

                  not the same price Ralf.
                  cost with construction costs,howmany and what Accessories,what kind of trailer comes behind it

                  those container with trailer are less that 20 euro,but there are also container chassis of more than80 euro.

                  my bad foot have some problems,so mostly sitting work for modelbuilding,means mainly placing decals.

                    those are for 2 brothers but 1 was working that time at another company,but is back now with us,for the third time,and with 3 of them.
                    but when building differend models,and both with a hapag lloyd container,i got the same container and differend trucks in my closet,
                    so i let made differend container numbers.



                    the 3 merc's almost ready,but havn't al the decals in house.

                      This foot problem is really spoiling your holiday, you were looking forward to getting so much done with your models. Is there nothing else you can do sitting down, apart from the decals?

                        there is some to do,but for drilling or paintspraing you do standing.
                        and though it's looking better now,i still don't want to much stand on it.
                        over 2 weeks my work starts again,so it have to been healed,i hope.
                        next week i think visit the docter again,and they can see if it's infected,i hope.(they see it i mean,not thats infected)
                        but there are more parts that need decals.
                        other wise some little paintwork,making other parts ready.
                        but ihave to watch out for drillingscrap.

                          If it is looking better to you, then that's a good sign. You would soon know if it was infected. Keep up the good work!

                            the containers have al there decals as the 3 cab's,as waht i had for them.

                            i had placed 2 sizes of name plates behind the windshield,so that he could decied what size he wanted.

                            not that it is inportant,you can't read the names anyway
