Flying Scotsman 4472 Posted April 18, 2012 Share Posted April 18, 2012 (edited) Something a little different for you guys here is a step by step guide. The donor vehicle I'm using is an Oxford diecast Scania 144 with a 45' curtain side trailer Start off by removing the printed writing. A cotton bud and some nail polish remover will do this You should be left with a nice clean unit when your finished Next strip down the cab by taking the screws from underneath Mask off the grill on the Scania as the truck comes from the factory with a grey grill and most hauliers keep the grey grill as a status symbol Give the cab a rub down with your glass fibre pen When you have all that done time for some under coat Strip the trailer down I'm going to be making a 45' flat so file down the chassis to give you a smooth surface 45' flats are a few inches wider than their curtain side equivalent so turn the body upside down and draw around it to give you your flat trailer body Finish of your body with plasticard sides etc n I finished of the truck with my air brush and some nice yellow paint and some IE decals I had lying around Your trucks not making you any money if she is empty so her first load is a load of white metal bogies on their way to the airbrush plant Edited April 25, 2012 by Anthony Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
