              Your attention to detail is amazing, especially seeing how you make those red lines.

              Your patience is also impressive!

                thanks J-O

                but if i don't make the perfect or close to perfect, it issn't the truck were they drive with.
                but on the other hand, most of them i build for, don't collect models, they just want there truck in model.
                if it's the brand, the colors and licence plate are right then it's okay.
                but it's not my style anyway to deliver a model thats just close to the Original.

                on the images it looks nice,but closer look you see the red line is not perfect at some places,
                but it's just 1 -1,5 mm not that easy to tape that and of the 2 dimensional corners,sharp edges it's hard to get it right, not to mention the door seams ,were no tape can go in

              painted the interieur of the MAN cabs
              not that there is much to paint, some grey for the floor and seats, bleu as a sleepingbag and some silver and black at the gearshifter



              painted the grille of the Duel DAF,the first layer

              best regards Thijs

                  Impressive progress!

                  The next step for your trucks would be to place them in a diorama. That would be a great way to display the fine work you have done with these models.

                    yes i had too think about a diorama ,but the only time i would use that is for a finished model for taken images of it.
                    when not in use it's nothing more that a ''stay in the way'' object.

                    some other builders have made them, looks great those truck models in the diorame, but every model is in the same diorama.

                  I think diorama is wonderful. Something I always saw during childhood and wanted to do, but I never had the skills to anything like that.

                  I had a couple of model cars once upon a time, I remember a Jeep Renegade, plastic off course. I remember setting them up like a car crash and taking photos of them with that old style film camera. Good times.

                    hahaha ,yes the first thing in childhood is ,ho to crash your cars,.
                    i done that too, taking a hammer and smash the model full with dents.
                    toy went i the bin by my parents, it's broken now, you can't play with it anymore and send me to bed.
                    and not even an image then

                  got this week a load of decals , so can work at many models now to finsih them

                  decals for the yang ming conainers
                  decals for the 4 Jac. H. Kool models, the bleu/grey ones anf for the trailers
                  it's hard to see,light decals on light paper.



                  also included in the package
                  a kit of a mack r600.
                  the darn thing is , i need a r700.
                  important ?? yes ,very
                  the r700 is the mack of Rubberduck
                  in real the difference between them is a 10-15 cm longer bonnet
                  but the change to find one is about 0.1%
                  so far closer than this i can't get



                  pffff, another model ,when will i learn
                  euhhh never , i think

                    hahahahaha... thank you. Great to know that there are others who also crashed their plastic models in the childhood.

                    Even worse, one of my plastic kits of the SMIT ROTTERDAM "accidentally" caught fire down by the sea in my childhood.... LOL

                    BTW, those decals, are they the one which you put moist on one side and then add on? I remember them for especially my brothers WW2 plastic aircrafts kits.

                      dip the complete decal in lukewarm water for some seconds, the hotter the water,the shorter the time.
                      place it on the model and with a soft cloth , (i Always use a handkerchief, thin and soft, and more important, a clean not used one. LOL) press the decal thight on the model and by that also press the water away under it
