    didn't done much today.
    spray painted the wheels
    and remove te Original landinglegs system and replace them for a more realistic model.
    not mouted them yet,the model is not on it's wheels,so don't know the exact hight for them.



    also made a ladder for the tanktrailer,also not glued yet. it will give problem for the spray paint

    the mistake i made as in #650 was that i placed them above the chassis.
    they are made for them thatswhy the supports at the exhausts.
    but here i placed it under the chassis ,same lenght as the doubble in #650.
    cut the support away for a part and bingo i got one i like.
    even if i think it's to high, i can cut of at the top.
    the Original truck didn't had the curve on top anyway

    and i have plenty to choose out

    top row verticle exhaust , and 3 and 4 from the left side, looks the best

    afterall i need a single one

    bottom row ,are more or less side pipes, horizontal under the truck
    just see how it will looks



    this is a sidepipe.
    it's starts direct from frontwheel and extends tll the rear axle , or just as long you wante it to be, but anyway it goes by the side of the truck

    i have so many boxes with wheels and tyres , that i found a better size

    the left ones, but again on new type of rims.
    the difference in rims, the left one is a trailer wheel ,the right one a truck wheel



    the tyres on those wheels fit also on the old type rims ,so thats a problem solved,partly, the wheels are the type for traction axle, so for the truck ,not for a trailer.
    the aluminum rims on the truck are also the special bought ones, there big too,
    the bleu rims are just for looking how it looks when they all had them. the tyres on them i use for the trailer

    and the next problem showed up on this simple model.
    i bought wheels and tyres which belongs to the age of the truck, old type wheels.
    but they are to big for the trailer, the fill the wheel arches compleet.
    darn

    the right wheel is the old type



    those are better fitting, but also te big.
    and though it's a model, in real live there is not much place for suspension.,even when it was fully loaden like standing here



    and it are todays model wheels, and truck rims.

    Really pleased to see the thread I started without really thinking there would be that much interest in it, has soared to so many pages! Brilliant.

    Some nice models as well. Still collecting WWII vehicles, myself, although I have to be more discerning now. I will also collect related items - I picked up a 'trackside' model of an Anderson Shelter in OO scale. Intended to be used on an allotment or similar on a model railway as it shows a door added to the front - but a nice addition. Personally, I'm not a builder of models as time does not permit this. Another current favourite is a WWI open top bus painted khaki green used for transporting troops to the front in France. Also, a recent model is of a replacement WWII bus for the Outer Circle route in my native Birmingham. This is painted in utility grey and comes with a bit of history. Replacements were required faster than livery painting allowed, so they simply painted the wheel arches and platform edges in white for blackout use.

    Ah, thanks. I saw that bit but disregarded it as a useless left-over fragment of something else!
    "Useless?" mutters Thijs to himself - nothing here in my attic is useless!

    the chassis are cut in two's and with there cabs they belongs



    the old daf torpedo changed from a 2 axle truck to a three axle truck
    the newer old daf torpedo stays a three axle truck but with newer type chassis, with air suspension.
    that black chassis will cut in two also and glued to the cab section. it will be cut just before the tandemaxle.
    at least that was the plan ,but i got also that red chassis, it's just a chassis (you can see it in 644-2) and the tandemaxleset with airsuspension.
    in that case i can keep the black chassis intact. so will see by that time
