the finished 2640

Recommended Posts

the door was pretty simple really,just cut the shape out of the cab,it's clearly visable,but leave half the rear upright in place,glaze with a fine clear plasti card material and glue a brass rod to the rear of the door upright,at the same angle as the upright,very important that,as the door open out and slightly upwards with the hinge in this position,thus clearing the mudguards.fix a small bit of plastic with a hole drilled in to take the hinge in the top of the cab,and drill a matching hole in the mudguard to take the bottom oin,and bang the door is done

TM thats a real stunner, looks great on the sprayer. It's so real if you emailed a pic to Howard & Son's they'd offer you a couple of grand!! They'd be less than pleased when they arrive in their artic to pick it up though!!

Have you thought about a website for your layout?
