    the Duel truck has a search light at the cab,the Daf don't have that roofsupport there,so placed one behind the bonnet



    but then those metal headlights are just silvergrey painted, not a good looking front then
    , drilled them out and placed those little diamonds aswel



    notice, that aren't real diamonds,that's swarofsky diamonds.

        didn't do much the last days,mainly dooing everything besides modelbuilding

        went out to get a spraycan on a other place, a cheaper place.
        after 30,000 times trying to gleu a ladder on the tank, i bought other stuf, a 2 compunents glue,
        but not working well at this point, so trying it now for 30.006 time
        more or less done with the duel truck.
        did make the rearbracket for the mudflaps,
        but still not the parts yet

        starting to go on with other models, 4 of a former company were i worked for.
        the 4 models as in #658.1 i talked about, making 1 trailer ready for spraying into the primer
        also with a trailer trailer cover,of another model were i have to make 4 of

        so busy with many things, but it stops everytime because i ran out of parts or paint or decals

        but sprayed some things in the primer

        the rearbracket on the truck to place the mudflaps at
        also i filled the back side with that 2 components glue, in 2 times, here was the first time



        for 30.000 times i tryed to place the ladder,but every time it goes loose again

          the boxtrailer that comes behind a old truck i drove.
          the rear bumper was broken,so made a repair with plastic, but broke very fast, bought some copper and make one of that
          i lost the landinglegs, take them from another trailer i got (the same model) but then again when i need that trailer i got the same problem.
          so take another one and make it so it fits, and also some repair work.
          removed the last paint on some parts and placed a dieseltank under it, it wil be a reefer trailer



          the trailer cover which i removed the paint of but still some left picked that also out to remove the left paint, but the cover was completly rusted.
          so sand that al the way that al the paint and rust is away

            this is one the four ,one of i drove with.
            almost fineshed for years, but i was stuck on the other 3 models ,so stoped with this one to.
            but it was just 3 colors of paint ,decals on it and done,
            oh and make the side guard on it

            the white strip and a step bracket ,lets hope the paint is still good to use

                Good heavens, you've been doing quite a bit of catching up on older models-in-the-making, Thijs. Great!
                #664.1 Is that gubbins in the middle the refrigeration unit? (Oh yes, I know all about reefer trucks now, ) Which is the diesel tank - is it that bit behind the landing legs? But it looks so small, though perhaps it is just to supply the fridge?
                #665/1 Have you got the decals for that one? And the wheels don't match yet - I assume that they are still to be painted - hope the old paint you have is still OK, otherwise there wil be more expense. Is that more refrigeration gubbins at the rear end?
                These unfinished models are something different, it's lovely to see you getting going with them again. Thijs, you must keep up the good work and get some of them completed now.

                  yes thats the one, looks smaal, but can filled with about 200liter, and only for the fridge engine, a small one, even much smaller than thats is in your car

                        but i started with this
                        and this was just the base, lots of parts would added, make even my own parts out of resin
                        it just went wrong through the roofspoiler

                          a merc



                          and a man, loks the same as the other 2,but has a smaller cab.about 20cm,10cm each side.
                          had to cut the chassis aswel,and place there another part at it to get a 3 axle chassis

                            painted the bikeguard black



                            then wanted to paint the parts braun again.
                            take the spraycan shake it and



                            it imploded

                            i don't hope that more can sufferd of that, i got lots of them, which i can throw away.
                            like flushing money to the toilet

                                a driver asked me if i could build a model for him.
                                he saw at the fair a model made of resin, but he found it to expensive, so he bought (unseen) a kit of it.
                                made the box open at home and closed it just at fast.
                                he know he couldend built that


                                the 5 white parts are Original tekno parts aswel some other too, the cyellow/white stuff is the resin

                                it layed for years in house and in that time the model was bent and tornt al over
                                this is a complete model

                                and what i build for others ,i build for me too.
                                but from Tekno parts,again i needed 2 chassis to make this truck, and this is without the trailer what lays here



                                bad images ,but photo from photo
