          bought also 2 sleeper boxes.
          not that i need them,but just incase.
          that man had more type of sleeper boxes,but sold out,and propably that he won't make new ones anymore.
          times are changing in modelbuilders world. he don't think that he can sold enough of them to get outof the costs of producing

          now i have 2 types,i can make more of them out of resin

              Thats a place to search for it.
              First thing what the color of the chassis was.
              The cab color numbers i have.
              Was it the factory livery and what waa the factory livery then that time.
              In that time there wasn't much extra's on a truck, so i think that it was a standart truck, as MAN , sorry M.A.N built them that time. I can't even see what trailer is behind, 2 or 3 axle

            meanwhile i still working at the models

            i placed the mirror supports



            just placed them for the image,but will fit correct



            also wide,but less wide as the plastic ones

              after i spraypainted the cab/bonnet i noticed a line in the bonnet.
              after closer look at images i didn't see them on the originel truck.
              it was a line of the mold were top and bottomside came together
              so i removed them. also drilled a new hole on the wheel arches ,because left and right were differend, and filled the wrong hole again

                    with darkbrown paint i made some rust at the trailer, also in the black parts, but need some other brown too.
                    the long brown stripes are spilled liquid, as a try.
                    but i have to place the decals first, so the liquid flows over the letters

                        Enough "waiting for decals" to keep your decal-maker busy for weeks - always assuming you remember to ask him!

                      between the red line,boxes full with donor models, ready parts, left overs, parts waiting to be used etcetcetc
                      in the shoe and booth boxes fresly painted parts,aswel in those plastic boxes, behind the row in sight is another row with boxes, full with …….

                        No you.re not. You're just stuffing all the bits into boxes.

                      the building corner.
                      with lots of tools, parts ,kits etcetcetc



                      another storage corner,3 crates of spray cans, on top of that boxes full with small parts, and litte paint cans,top row also paint stuff,the right side a mess corner.



                      not that weird that i can't find parts sometimes, still looking at boxes where i placed parts in

                        First pic. !!!! Now I AM impressed

                      the plan was to do a lot of decal work on sunday,while a lot was ready for it
                      didn;t had ecals for everything, and at the end i didn't had them while i thought i had them left from when i build them before

                      had to made 3 of these trailers, and the decals which i need for it



                      but along the way i went further and further i knew i wouldend come so far as i thought and hoped.
                      some of the trailer fronts were differend painted as the other ,or after a closer look there was some paint over spray.
                      curtains sheets of the trailers which i thought there were paint very wel painted yellow, wen't so. the white plastic shines through
                      while al the repaint work i didn't more than this ,i trailer front and back, 1 only the front,1 only the backside and 1 container complete except 1 side, decals have to dry ,so i can't lay them on the wet decals

                        Then all that must have been done by someone else, Thijs is too much of a perfectionist. Or perhaps he had been working so hard at them that he fell asleep while continuing to paint. Not to worry, you'll soon sort the bits out when you need them.
