Nice!  Natural light pics look great.  What kit? Scale?

Thanks,

John

It sure does, when done right. This is an Italeri Trailer kit chassi that I used. The flatbed is scratch built as well as all the mounts for the steel coil. The scale is 1/24.

Very nice!  Great weathering job.  I also like sunlit photos- I always do my finished model pictures outdoors.

Now  ,Tiking !

 You know it's not nice to try to fool us , with a picture of a real vehicle of any type  and call it a model ! That's absolutely awesome . Even rust in the right places .The weathering is spot on . Do you mess with trains too ? The weathering seems to say you do .

 If that's the case , You nailed it .The execution is flawless ! I especially like your attention to detail on the tyres and treads . So Real looking  - T.B.

A big plus with natural lighting.

Thank you kindly. I have been a fan of model railroading since 1992. But I have never had the space for a layout. I still collect pics of layouts and trains. I have not done any train weathering but it is on my to-do list of things to weather.

Tiking,

As Tanker Builder mentioned, as usual your model look like the real thing. Very well done and you nailed the photographs too, just as the model demands.

Thanks for sharing this extremely nice model with us. YesYesYes

Tiking,

I really like how you take non-standard subjects and turn them in works of art.

Absoutely stunning work. 

Thank you for sharing, and I look forward to seeing more of your builds!
