"OLD. BUT RUNS"! - Scania LB 141 Tractor
Posted by tiking on Friday, October 12, 2018 3:02 AM

It’s been mix feelings with this Heller kit. But seeing that it was a very old kit and compromises were taken into account, I now learn my way around such discrepancies in this kit. All-in-all, it was an ‘OK’ build, despite my frustrations. Barlas Pehlivan, was also kind to help answer some of my annoying questions, concerning this kit. So kudos to him.

My apologies for the pics. I will take better ones later. It was very windy outside today and I could not get the right photos I wanted. Oh well, you can’t win every time. Hope you enjoy the photos regardless.

 

I also added some wip photos o the interior, as it was difficult to get good shots of the interior after the roof and doors were install.

I continue to be awestruck at each new build that you post. Your attention to the smallest details and effects of nature and mechanical wear is spectacular. Thanks for posting the WIP pics as well for the full appreciation of the interior details. You have my respect! Thumbs Up

Thank you kindly Chucky. I appreciate your insight on my models. I do try and inmatade life as I see it as much as I can possibly squeeze into my models. I kinda have a thing for work horses or well used vehicles. That is why you don't see any clean or brand new vehicle models from me. For me, the beauty is in the weathering or how a truck looks after years of abuse in their daily hailing. Almost like a fetish. :)

Another jawdropper of a build. 

Feelings are like scents: The more they are analyzed, the worse they smell.
