    It's OK, Thijs, fancy just means (err-errrrrr-r, hard to explain just what it does mean!) My dictionary says versierd, decoratief. That seems about right. Certainly not fantasy, I know it's for real.
    Yep, I was forgetting that you have your long holiday soon. You'll be able to get a lot more on the models done then. Power to your elbow, or your fingers!

      darn darn crap to keep it polite

      had done some small things today and now the mudscreens are ready i could place them on the chassis,but need some other parts aswel.
      AND I COULDEND FIND THEN NOWHERE
      have a zillion of boxes ,small pots ans other kins of storage ,and had open them all (i think) but nowhere.
      so instead of building i can go surging for them.
      i havn't throw them away,i neven ever throw model parts away,you never know when you can use it for something else.

        That's if you can find it!
        Oh Thijs, it's just maddening when that sort of thing happens. All the time spent searching when you could have been fastening the mudflaps on. You didn't put them in a special place just nearby ready for joining it all up, did you? Or in/on/under the chassis, where you thought you'd see them easily? Did you put the shoebox on top of them by mistake? Fallen on the floor?
        Or is it a long time since you last saw them?
        They will turn up in the end, but it's the waste of time that's so infuriating for you.
        Keep your pecker up!

            i was stil searching for those parts,i had even contact to the factory if they would please please please want to sell me to missing parts.
            nope they wanted it,i could buy new kits though.
            and that was the only option,buy 1 kit from eacht model,and made mold from those parts and made them from resin.

            but at the start of my Christmas holiday i was busy again making other things beeing sick of the missing parts and a take a folder away and under that there was a box.
            never thought about it that i missed that bleu box,and my hart start beating faster.

            yes,the missing parts

                            licence plates placed and looking at the images of the Original truck i see that the grille which is grey ,the grey is also behind the spoilers on the cab corners.
                            darn i hate it to paint on a finished cab
