Beavertail body for ALDI lorry


Recommended Posts

I went shopping in ALDI yesterday and picked up one of those £6.99 lorries :) :)

I chose the blue MAN cement mixer as I knew I wanted to have a go at a beavertail body and had the same colour blue paint at home ;) ;)

With the mixer removed and about an inch of the back of the chassis I set about building my body from plasticard and plastistrut 8) 8)

This picture shows as far as I got in about an hour yesterday ;)

I set back to work on her this morning and now it's ready for painting

I have clad the deck in chequerplate and the ramps work and are held in the transport position by toplinks ;) just as our real beavertail Scanias are at work :P

Awwww.... go on then...

Although... I thought if I had a red one I could persuade Mandy to make me some Mark Weatherhead decals for it - that really would look the bollards  :-*;D

According to the box the MAN comes in white,blue or green, I think weatherheads have a red Scania wagon and drag ???
