            So, will you be able to put them in sitting down? Shouldn't be too difficult.

              Wesley and i went to the modeltruck museum of Tekno as we do every year.
              i wanted to buy 2 40ft flatracks for the model of the HC and see if i could the model of the titanic truck.

              i got my 2 flatracks,but couldend buy the titanic truck,its for the Irish market only.
              Wesley bought him a flatrack and a b-choise model of a DAF and a tanktrailer.

              here 1 flatrack on my old Daf,more to see if it's fits.differend brand of flatrack and chassis

              i can make it on it,but i have to make the chassis a bit longer,or buy (more try to find ) another brand of chassis



              and when you have more,you can make a complet load of them,max 4.

              2 bleu for me ,1 green of Wesley



              but it are heavy weight flatracks and while they are b-choise less expensive,but even now 30 euro a piece.

                Expensive hobby! Is the Titanic truck a complete model or were you hoping to buy the parts to make it yourself?

                  the normaly a-choise model 45 Euro's.

                  the complete truck,you don't find parts for those.
                  sometimes you can found the complete truck or a trailer there,and then there are pakked in a box with a differend truck or trailer.

                      step by step

                      for another collegue ,which gave me the base white model,only place decals, new rims, airhorns and some other minor things
                      drilled the holes for the airhorns and 2 new frontwheels,need 2 extra for the second axle



                      the decals which i have to place. (not all of them,some spare and some for another model)



                      the base white model,so out of the box

                          saw the aluminium for the bicycle under drive protection



                          and made the advertising plates which come on those protecters

                            You've got quite a bit done, Thijs. What's this with the bike?
                            By the way, have you managed to get the right type of varnish, you had big problems with it before, didn't you?

                              the idea is,when a truck is turning ,while a cyclist was beside the truck,the cyclist is cath by the catcher and push him/her away from the wheels of the trailer.
                              remember my story ,whats happend in Arnhem in the 80's?

                              yes,the cheapest varnish there is,is working well.
