    I agree - if it's a hobby and you enjoy doing it, there is a lot that can be done.

    But building my own SS Norway would be an overkill for my skills....

        i have plenty of chrome wheelrings, but they made new type of wheels and the old ones don't fit anymore.
        left the new rings,in the middle the old rings and at the right the old rings wich i dad to drill 0,5 mm wider otherwise they didn't fit

        the clothes peg is just for showing the size of them



        the wheels are al painted now and ready for placing the supersingle tyres

              And if you hadn't bothered to paint the gearbox the proper colour, you would never have been really satisfied with the job. Now you know it is all correct.

              If they don't make the kits for the HC type truck, how on earth do you know which part to buy? They are all so minute and probably very alike with only minor differences from one vehicle to another! Marvellous. It's really good, watching it all coming together, anyway.

                They make just a few differend chassis.
                Depents how many axles there are.
                The same counts for the cab.
                And in the prescription stands what is what.
                And when you order a kit, they are complet for what you want to build


              And when you order a kit, they are complet for what you want to build
              Yes, I know, but you couldn't get kits for the HC type truck, so you had to buy ready made models, take them to pieces and then rebuild. So I wondered how you were able to find all the tiny parts which you knew would fit the HC and not other types. Different makes of trucks can't be so similar that a kit of universal parts would fit all of them. For example, you had to fiddle about with the wheel rings to get the right size, so what about all those other things in #602.2?????
              And in the prescription stands what is what.
              Yes, but it won't say it is for the HT type because there are no matching kits for them. So master modeller has to fiddle about with all those minute bits.
              Patience!!!

                the base model is in fact the HC.
                i only need some extras, like the horns,the lightbar , some other extra lights other tanks and the 4 SS wheels.and tyres and chrome rings and a fire extinguisher and wheel chocks
                al those things fit at any truck (except the roof lightbar) also in 1:1, the Original

                if i broke down a piece there are some places to order new ones, and much much more

                http://modeltruckparts.nl/english/Index-en.htm

                if you want you can look here for parts,but if not welknown in this stuf, it soon will dazzle you.
                but click to parts,choose a page and the whole page show up to choose what you want and need
                al bleu numbers,click on them and image opens
                and than you can order what you need

                or go to this one,wich is now the main shop. first it was the modeltruckparts

                https://www.bemomodels.com/en/home/homepage-286

                click in the bleu stripe what you search for, then click in the new page in the verticle menu what you search for and so on and everything show up in images,
                stil you have to know what you need,even me.
                sometimes it's a struggle to found what i want or need

              i had placed the wrong images in a post,here the right one

              also from the second cab painted the backpiece black.
              now i have to drill the holes in the roof for the airhorns emergency lights and the lightbar
              then i can start at the container chassis

              best regards Thijs

                thanks of the storm (windforce11) i was back at home at 12am on Thursday,many trucks (67) were blown on there side complete or partly
                mostly the east european and german mautkillers,only 7 dutchies.

                so after watching the live television about the storm i went up the gallic to do something

                like bending a DAF super space cab lightbar into a HC lightbar
                those are made of 1mm thick plastic.
                so had to mah=ke 2 of them,at the end i had to use 4.
                two broke
                but stil not settisfied
                i shall see if i kep them or made new ones. (again)

                on the silver grey DAF cab the origial, and the bended on the HC



                also drilled the holes foor the airhorns

                best regards Thijs

                  ordered 2 trailer after a long search at the bemo site see comment in post 607.1 and still don't have everything i need,but not starting with that one anyway.



                  but the chassis is to long,have to cut it,the axles are close to each other,while i need a wide spread ,dubble air tyres ectectect

                  and have to look something like this (a bought trailer)

                    Working on so highly detailed models must give you a very valuable insight in the real trucks.

                    A very professional trucker! Glad you made it home before the strong winds hit!

                      My insight in trucks is the same as yours in vessels.
                      We both work every day with them.

                      There were already blown away a lot in the morning.
                      After 3pm it was almost windstil.
                      Weird world

                    Goodness, Thijs, what a gale to be driving in, I'm so glad you got home early, out of it.

                    You will make NEW ones! Understood? None of this making do.(zich behelpen) That is not Thijs. Anyway, I like the HC one with the kinks in it! , it's over the top, like you! (he-he-he)

                    I don't understand what you're getting at. "Not starting with that one, anyway" What one? I'm confused. Not that that's unusual. I'll have a look at those two websites later, when poor brain can perhaps make a little sense of them.

                      with containers it's not that bad to drive as with sail trailers. and the empty completer truck weights 23tons
                      sthe teel sides of the container,so the wind don't get an easy grip on them.

                        I'll send you €€12 euros and then you can buy 6 more.
                        But they must be very brittle, Thijs, to break so easily, for I know you would be very careful. Oh, what a shame after all your efforts to get things exactly right. Save up more pennies for two more bars and then you will have to resign yourself to putting them on without the bends, as you'd really like. Oh, I am so sorry.
