              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
            Working...
