    i was stil searching for those parts,i had even contact to the factory if they would please please please want to sell me to missing parts.
    nope they wanted it,i could buy new kits though.
    and that was the only option,buy 1 kit from eacht model,and made mold from those parts and made them from resin.

    but at the start of my Christmas holiday i was busy again making other things beeing sick of the missing parts and a take a folder away and under that there was a box.
    never thought about it that i missed that bleu box,and my hart start beating faster.
    would it bee.

    yes,the missing parts

    That's if you can find it!
    Oh Thijs, it's just maddening when that sort of thing happens. All the time spent searching when you could have been fastening the mudflaps on. You didn't put them in a special place just nearby ready for joining it all up, did you? Or in/on/under the chassis, where you thought you'd see them easily? Did you put the shoebox on top of them by mistake? Fallen on the floor?
    Or is it a long time since you last saw them?
    They will turn up in the end, but it's the waste of time that's so infuriating for you.
    Keep your pecker up!

    darn darn crap to keep it polite

    had done some small things today and now the mudscreens are ready i could place them on the chassis,but need some other parts aswel.
    AND I COULDEND FIND THEN NOWHERE
    have a zillion of boxes ,small pots ans other kins of storage ,and had open them all (i think) but nowhere.
    so instead of building i can go surging for them.
    i havn't throw them away,i neven ever throw model parts away,you never know when you can use it for something else.

    It's OK, Thijs, fancy just means (err-errrrrr-r, hard to explain just what it does mean!) My dictionary says versierd, decoratief. That seems about right. Certainly not fantasy, I know it's for real.
    Yep, I was forgetting that you have your long holiday soon. You'll be able to get a lot more on the models done then. Power to your elbow, or your fingers!

    Wow, I missed the fancy French model. Not sure I approve, can't really take it seriously, but I love the pistol vertical exhausts behind the cab.
    And at last, a little more work on the Mercs. Placed in the shoebox like that just shows how small are the parts you're working on. And the stars - heavens, they're minute, aren't they? Now just keep at it more, man, you have a terrific backlog of trucks to do, all sitting in more shoeboxes waaaaaaiiiiiiiiting. . And you must have finished getting the rest of the dahlias up by now.

    did not that much today,did some painting,painting the lines between 2 colors better on the mudscreens and paint the Mercedes star

    so nice of frivers which paint the nations colors in the Mercedes star,in this case the red,white and bleu of the Netherlands,but when to do it 50 times smaller,it aint that funny anymore.

    but a detailfreak as me i just couldend let it black.



    not to much paint on the left one,but smaller holes in the star

    how big is the star?
    so big,or small
