Scummy and me were just picking at the bones, someone had already devoured all the meat and inhaled the stuffing at the same time!! Shocked
I'm not issueing them with coloured stickers, to avoid being trampled in the rush. Evil or Very Mad
They'd have to bring a trailer if they attended the Scummy divide up! Rolling Eyes

Gees brother Dave your really expecting a lot. It's Scummy we're talking about here, the best you'll get is some blurry out of focus pic that shows bugger all of the Volvo and more of the Western Star mirror! Laughing

That'd be good. We've got a couple of 25 tonners if you want reference pics.
Easy quick solution until you get something built might be just the body from a Paymaster - as though an unassembled one was being shipped to a mine.

Rob, as long as the blurry image from the mirror is something other than a mutton chopped truckie I'll be happy byebye
Fred, any reference pics gladly accepted. the Payhauler dump weighs in at around 50 tonne, which this trailer can handle as a whole load.

I'll be going out to the yard again next Tuesday (they are hibernating ATM) and will endeavour to get you some pics then.

You could carry a whole Payhauler but I just thought that for a quick load you just have to throw together the body and paint it yellow - no detail or weathering needed. Model trucks always look better with a load on IMO.

Fred, thanks for ref. pics, they'll come in very handy when the time comes.
I nearly forgot that I have started a payhauler already, so it might fill the void untill the Volvo's done.

No worries.
When you get started, let me know if you need more pics of any bits I missed.
Love the weathering on the payhauler engine.
