Mack Titan plus extras

Post by Coota on Sun 06 Oct 2013, 1:24 pm

This story started after lending 2 of my old models to a local hobby shop for a display, one message I got was from an old school mate that I lost contact with 22 years ago and another was from a pensioner that had epilepsy and couldn't build the kits he had, he had someone take over building them but had messed them up so asked if I could clean up the paint work.  My wife and I felt sorry for him as he had spent heaps of money on the kits, I was wondering what I had done when we saw them as one should have gone straight in the bin, only took pictures of the International when finished as didn't hold much hope for it as the wheels were glued on, windscreens glue to the outside of the cab and painted with what looked like a 4 inch brush so 150 hours later over 4 months it was finished!!!!!
Cause of it all, Freightliner I built 5 years ago

Thanks Mouse and DeeCee. The old fella loves his trucks and spent a lot of money getting the kits, I hate seeing old people get ripped off so was happy to help out.
