    finally after 30.007 times the pins behind the ladder hold
    Hurrah! After all those attempts you won through.
    Now put the copper pins and the special glue together in a bag and label it clearly, then hang it on a peg somewhere so that you can easily find it again (Some hope, he-he)

    Your own: complete with airhorns, lights and heaven-knows what-it-is decal on the side of the cab. Does look smart, Thijs.

    I don't blame him, seeing all those miniscule parts spread out.
    But Thijs to the rescue - given time - LOTS of time.

    notice, that aren't real diamonds,that's swarofsky diamonds.[
    You disappoint me! Mind you, Svarofski diamonds are just a leeeeeetle pricey, too.

    just a pitty that i don't have the american mirrors, otherwise the cab was painted too



    the last one were i get the maskingtape off ,and that went wrong
    i only taped the lines,the bigger parts i cover with paper.
    the paper was sooked with paint,and sticked at the roof.
    meaning ,can start over again.

    didn't make images of it,but it's a hell to tape the underside before i can start spraying the brown paint

    but here is the first layer



    then was cover the reefer trailer with tape so much easier.
    this was a few years old demotrailer,with some rust,thatswhy was the complete trailer sprayed red.
    and red it was because of we drove then for Nestle, and the trailer would get a kitkat advertising



    now only have to paint some smaller things like the aitsuspension

    painted the exhaust brown



    also the steel suspension is rusting all the way
    spray painted the catwalk too
    the Original didn't had that, but now i can cover the adhesive bonding and make the chassis some stronger there

    chassis are ready, also made the support for the exhaust.
    also is the ladder in the primer paint now
    the cab issn't in the primer yet, i don't have the American mirrors for the cab, so can't drill the holes for it.

    spray painted the chassis of the duel truck black aswel the underside of the tanktrailer
    and spraypainted the underside of the reefertrailer red with the parts that goes under.
    i had sprayed them first because otherwise i can't reach al the narrow places of them.



    finally after 30.007 times the pins behind the ladder hold
    had made then now with copper pins and the 2 components glue, and let them dry now for 2 days, and it holds
