The Other Side To The Hobby

Evening Gents, 

I've just been going through some of my storage boxes while giving them a little bit of a tidy. Picking up 1:76 scale cars, vans and trucks is also another interest of mine, especially trucks. Here's a few that I've dug out of the boxes. 

Probably my favourite. The DAF 2800

And something a little more modern

Dug out a few more bits and pieces to add to the list. As before, all 1:76 scale. 

Escort XR3i, Capri MK1 and Capri MK111

Love this. Looks even better when carrying a container.

There's a other side!:banana:. Lovely models. For older cars paint different parts like a door or a windmirror in different colors to show that the person who owns the veichle does not bother in reapainting them. Plus it make a more realistic seen.

True if you're modeling  a more recent era but they were the brand spanking new stuff in their own time. For me, it's hard to know what exactly was prevalent on Irish roads further back in time

Finished this makeover on one of my Ford Cargos recently. 

I could be wrong, but I don't recall seeing box rigid's carrying the Road Liner branding back in the day, so there's a little artistic license at play here on my part.
