Did someone say trucks? Watching this one!

Danny Meer
Thx for the tip Nigel
Don't expect to much from my builds Brandon :P my builds cannot compete with your work lol I'm just happy to have something to do during cold and wet days :D

Got 2 layers of primer on the engine and 2 layers of primer on chassis and 1 layer of flip flop paint, today I will get the black metallic paint in mail
1. December, 09:26
Bozzer
Looking forward to seeing the black paint Danny. I've just picked up several of the Alclad II Candy range. It's a tricky paint to use, you have to handle your parts with cotton gloves on, for both the base coat and top coat. Only when you clear coat it, can you handle the part. But, they have some amazing colours, which you'll see in the near future
2. December, 06:02
Danny Meer
Hope it works out with the paint Bozz, looking forward to some pictures of your build :)
Used chrome on some parts of my engine but not sure if I keep it like this or give it some more color
2. December, 14:04
Danny Meer
Really don't know how some of you can do those little detail so perfect...
Tried to do the Scania letters with a toothpick and goldpaint but still hard to do :P
2. December, 18:11
Martin Oostrom
It is, isn't it?
You can always sharpen the tip of the toothpick with your knife. Slow and steady is the trick. It helps to steady both hands on your desk.
2. December, 18:15
Brandon H
Danny, I've had some luck before with painting the color for the raised detail first, then slopping the base color right overtop of it before sanding it away to reveal the lettering. I'm also wondering if a real thin, dark wash over everything might crisp up details like that by settling at the edges of the letters - I might try it on some upcoming parts.
2. December, 18:19
Danny Meer
There's my problem Martin...the steady hands :P not easy with rheumatism and high humidty :D
And that was my problem Brandon, thought of doing the gold letters after painting the engine :P
I hope that it works with a thin dark wash for you, then I can try it aswell in the future when needed :)

Calling this 1 good enough for me :P
Those little decals where a nightmare to place, but got them done and I like it.

@Tom yesterday got the THW version in mail for € 20,-, but going into the stash for now, think I will go for a euro truck first.

I'm a Scania fan so it's a no brainer - either one !!
Love the Unimog. We're the opening doors part of the kit ?
26. November, 14:47
Danny Meer
For euro trucks, love the Scania the most and have 4 in stash.
Think I will go for the Imperial first :)

And yeah Nigel, opening doors is stock with this kit same for the backdoors. you can close them or keep them open like I have now (not glued)
26. November, 14:53
Danny Meer
Imo it's the best of that show truck line :)
Now that i've seen the metallic in the exterior parts, thinking of buying a metallic black for it :P

started as new project here:

Danny, I've been looking at the Imperial myself. Not really my thing, but I've kinda talked myself into a corner, with a mate of mine. I'll be waiting for you to start
26. November, 17:57
Danny Meer
@Bozzer the parts really look nice, very detailed and some nice decals in kit, even chrome stickers for bling :P Just ordered metallic black for it, at first wanted to use normal gloss black but the parts have metallic flakes in it and looks kinda cool already :)

Currently playing with a Pete 359. It was going ok, until my airbrush decided to spit out some grey paint, all over the yellow I was painting, at the time! So that's getting wet sanded today, and hopefully I'll get the yellow back on later? It still amazes me, where the crud hides, in my airbrush? I stripped it all down, and let it soak in some cellulose thinner. Well, the metal parts, anyway. NOTE: Not all airbrush seals accept cellulose thinner or paint, so please be careful!!! It's definitely an experience, this hobby of ours.
15. November, 09:44

Top result. Your efforts really paid off!

I did buy it Bozzer :D The chassis rails where already done and broken in 2, but is easy to fix. that's why it was only € 20,- for the kit and € 7,50 for postal. normally it would be around € 80,- or more for this kit :)

Should I use these flashlights or not? maybe a little to big for the 1:16 truck, got them on my Tamiya 1:14 and these where spares
3. December 2019, 19:25
Patrick Hagelstein
To me the difference in scale/size isn't that noticeable. Unless it's a very specific type of flashing lights, those lights come in all sorts and sizes, right?
3. December 2019, 20:15

Thought so too, and in the old days some trucks had large flashing lights. and old police cars aswell

You can always slap some glue under the stickers for piece of mind.
27. November 2019, 20:03

not sure what that will do to a stickersheet, wouldn't that just melt it?
27. November 2019, 20:04
Chris Greathouse
I wouldn't think so if it's a regular sticker, but don't quote me... Back in primary school, we played with old shotty stickers all the time and fixed them down with glue. They looked normal. just a thought.
27. November 2019, 20:30
Bozzer
Danny, use school glue, not kit glue! School glue is P.V.A. It dries clear and you won't need much mate. It can be diluted with water and if any overspills, you can wipe it off with a damp cloth.

@Chris, it's a picture of an Heavy duty trailer from internet, but like you said it would be a nice combo with that cargo (not sure if that's a kit or die-cast) and the Heavy haulage Scania :)

@Chaz Already have that 1 in my stash :D Bought mine for € 35,- Have a few nice trailers that I could use and that's my problem :P Don't know what I should put behind the Scania
28. December 2019, 17:10

This is the one from your stash, The only question would be... would a 1:24 truck and 1:25 trailer look like crap?

28. December 2019, 18:22
Chaz Gordon
The difference between scales is 1/8 of an inch in scale per 8 Feet full size, ie the width of the 1/25 trailer would be under by about 1/8 inch, and the length of a 40' trailer would be short by 5/8 inch, or about 16mm. On the height, no-one would ever notice.
The variance between manufacturers is more like to be noticable than that between the two scales. I have a 1/24 58 Chevy pickup truck in Die cast, and a 1/25 57 Chevy truck in plastic. The cabs for those two years of truck are identical, the changes were front end treatments. But the two scale cabs are noticably different at about 1/4 inch in the width, more than twice the scale variance, and the height is quite a bit off too. A shame as I was planning to cast a 58 Front end for the 57 truck kit.
29. December 2019, 03:20
Danny Meer
I was also wondering how much of a difference it would be, but now you gave some explenation about it, think it will be ok to use a 1:25 trailer behind a 1:24 truck :) thx for that Chaz

Don't the Aussies drive on the wrong, not right!, side of the road? Steering wheel in your kit is on the left side. Either the kit is wrong, OR the Kenworths were delivered like this back in the day. Where is our resident Aussie-truck-ologist when you need him? Peter, wake up!

In other news, I think you did well on this kit. K100's look awesome and so does yours

Tim Heimer
LOL Martin! Good point!
12. December 2019, 17:01

I was wondering the same, if it's a mistake or what...IMO think it was a fault of Revell, cuz KW had a plant in Australia in 1962 already. think Revell was cutting corners by using most of the parts in this kit for various models, including this "Australian" version. also some parts in the box for a Aerodyne version (upper glass and second bed) and a normal chrome front bumper for other K100's

This truck looks great! I like this model kit a lot and never bought it. I had a black one with the flat roof (not an aerodyne) which was destroyed in my man's cave when a wall collapsed. It still sits in a box. Maybe sometime it could get a restoration. I think all the parts are there.

The moment you find your kit under the heater.....my housekeeper placed this kit under the heater :(
The kit was mostly build already by previous owner, what I don't understand is that he build it first without painting...this makes it very hard to paint, cuz can't get to all parts....
11. October 2019, 08:10
Martin Oostrom
Can't you make a diorama with a fallen tree that hit the cab? Doesn't need to be now, but perhaps in a few weeks/months/years, when you feel you are up to it?
When working with an airbrush, you can get paint in amazing places, or none in other places. :) Masking painted parts before spraying another colour is pretty commonplace.

Agree with Martin - if you wanted to achieve such damage on purpose, it would never have worked this well...

You have to approach models and projects as people... empathically find out where their inner strengths and beauties are and gently carve out the best out of the relationship... ;) ;)
