Scania144L Flatbed

Post by tiking on Wed 05 Oct 2011, 9:02 pm

This build is probably not my best build, admitely I did slack on this one. At least, I think. Regardless, it's almost done. Got a little more weathering, decaling, and a little mod to do before it will look 99.9% 'OK'.

I had an issue with the chassis that I could not fix. That is why the front looks like it is leaning to one side. So I decided it would have a burst airbag or some kind of Axel problem. After all it has had a hard life.























-----------------------------------------

So far so good. I still have to blend in the rust with the rest of the surrounding color. Added some diesel spillage, light weathering on the lower body( hard to tell, but it's there).But it's taking shape:

Your artistic weathering skills are superb, and you're quick to adapt a model to fit any situation (the chassis problem). This is a really impressive piece of work - well done.

terrific

Thanks guys. Much appreciated. I am thinking of adding a crane behind the flatbed. Will see how it looks when done.

You sure do have the weathering thing down to a T. All your builds look incredibly realistic, this is no exception! Well done.

Thanks for the vote of confidence. I just added a crane which will be switched around; some paint and weathering and should look like it fits in. As for the load, I'm just testing it out. I'm thinking of using something else but do not know what. Although, it does look good on the bed.

Thanks but the load is not permanent. It is just a test subject.
