    when tekno had there 90th aniversery ,they had a event in there museum.
    many models were for sale for 90 euro,but nothing intresting for me.
    which i wanted where al sold out, the mack's.
    but bought me 2 lion toys models, well one and a half.
    bought them as donor for models i want to make, sometimes, but probably never.

    and as so ever, i bought models that look to good to be a donor model.

    a daf torpedo in the livery of the modelclub which i visit almost every 2 months, and the biggest in Europe.



    the plan was to cut this in 2 behind the cab ,and make a other back side to it with 2 axles,so that there came a 3 axle truck

    and i got this model what is not complete a lion toys model, the tanktrailer is lion, the cab too,
    but i never had seen a 3 axle model of this one,also the way the axles where placed and the strange engine.
    but it was so wel done, that it take some very close look to see how they did it.
    the truck is by this as called a code 3 model. build by someone self
    the cab is lion toys, the chassis is a conrad model,but don't know from which truck.

    so just as the torpedo i keep it like this ,just because of how it looks.

    but the trailer will not used, because i have the same trailer ,but with paint damage,so will use that tanktrailer as donor and this trailer goes to the other truck of the paint damaged trailer, then i have a nice set again.

    the truck of this will be stored for use to buid an other model. so not really need that i bought it after i was at home in look better to the model, just bought it because of the 3axle chassis,never had seen that.
    but hey,just 25 euro a model,who cares. (may be strange as how i said it,but when you think that prices of 200 euro are common for a model,than is this cheap)

    At the moment there is not much fun for me with the new car. Is in the garage since 2 weeks now, they had to pick him up with a trailer. Lots of oil had to be filled(5 liter a 21.85 euro a liter)
    The turbo was complete gone. But a new one wassn't available, 1 week to wait. Thuesday it was delevered and replaced. But stil not okay.
    Lost of compression in cilinder one.
    They think now that the engine gets a overhaul to make it 100%. But they had to look further for that.
    But it needs a week more, maybe more. It's just what s come out. A new engine head, a overhauled head, it' own head and let that one overhauled. I don't know this moment.

    it's a tipper chassis,a long chassis.
    i'm thinking of making it a real American style truck with a big sleeper box,chassis is long enough for that.
    the Original truck is stored in the DAF museum depots. Paccar don't want's it in the museum.
    DAF was murged that time with International Harvester, a competition of Paccar
