Some pictures of the special load that will go on the AMT Fruehauf Flatbed Trailer.
As mentioned it was the first release of the Heller kit. Noș 8 Bentley Blower in 1/24 scale. For that time a very good and detailed kit.
Some details from the rebuild kit.
Exhaust pipe at the back of the car.
Lefthand side of the car. Exhaust was rebuild from metal foil. Chassis got some layers of paint and weathering.
The giant fuel tank was completely stripped and got new webbing.
Looking at the engine and chassis. Getting close. Need to address some levers with strings broken of.
Detail from the righthand side. Frame that keeps the fuel tank in position, rebuild from brass tubes. Kit detail shows them moulded on the tank, as with the webbing.
This shows more detail on the webbing. Also the rear lights were attached to the frame that holds the tank.
Front side from the rightt. Detailed the engine and shifting mechanism. Still some work to do on that. Comes close however.
Fuel tank again, now the fuel lines are attached. Detail on the tub is also finish as from this picture.
Some flashing colours brings it alive.
Detailing the engine.
Back of the car, with the tank and fuel lines.
Reworked the grille. Plastic webbing was removed and replaced with very fine brass webbing.
Waiting for a finishing touch.
