    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

    Oh, I understand. That is a very high price for such a small amount of paint.

    I'm sure that you will finish the project later.

    the difference between the trucks is that the resin model (the top model) is a flatbed truck,so can load everything that fits on the truck

    while mine (lower model) is a real container truck



    but it was expensive enough for him he said,the only extra he wanted was the lightbar,
    and let made his own company decaks
    while i ,well i did some more

    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

    no sorry for that, it didn't gave me a trauma

    in that image there issn't any resin,the silvergrey parts are white metal,a soft metal

    this is what i bought 3 years back, still didn't use it, 67 euro's unused

    2 components for the resin, a tin and a small bottle for making the silicon rubber mold



    here a the molds i tryed ,just small parts



    it works to mix 2 proportional quantity of the big bottles and pour that in the molds, and let it dry a few minutes,but thats with small parts, bigger i don't know howlong

    other builders told me about it, when i said that i need more parts of some , without buying models for just i part, and then is that model without the part, so not a solution

    No, I haven't forgotten you telling about that accident, and I'm so very sorry that I reminded you of it, Thijs. I just wasn't clear what it looked like and so where it was.
    Something I forgot to ask in my previous Comment was about you working with resin, in #671 with that incredible display of all those minute parts. In what form do you buy it, and how do you work it?
    In that 15th century building in St. Mary's Street here, there are some beautiful wooden carvings beneath one of the first floor windows, one piece of which became very rotten a few years ago. A well-known local wood-carver used resin to replace it and I wondered at the time how it was worked and whether it is very easy or not. How did you find it?

    a bycicle fall under protection
    when we turn right and we didn't see the cyclist ,he/she can get stuck between the chassis parts or fall under the truck, those protection device push them away from the wheels.
    i had told you once (i believe or placed it here) that i drove so over a cyclist.

    in the images that are the white strips of plastic, the have to be painted black, but i glue them at the tanks, battery pack and more,there is some adhesive residue.
    the grey stuf, for that i need the brown paint.

    yes he is,and stop working in may ,so i will try to get them finished by then.
    he had never payed in advance, so he can't say nothing about it, by that i told him that i could make it for 300.00guilders
    what is in euro 136.13 in euro's.
    a mistake that i have made 1 time before, set a price for a model, it's costing me money. had already had that 3x 25.00 = 75 guilders is about 35 euro
    for this model i think i go over the 200 euro, but i had made a price for the model, so he only pay me that amount, costs me a lot .and not to forget, i get the total price for my own too for the model i keep

    Bike guard?
    then wanted to paint the parts braun again.
    What parts? And why paint them brown? Was that the correct llivery? If so, why didn't you paint them brown in the first place?
