Hi all I'm wondering if on the real thing these compartments are hinged some how

After adding this detail the other bit fits over the top like this

There are handles at the bottom of the outer shelving I'm wondering if I can some how make the parts hinged to show all the detail, there is loads of shelving like this and it would be a shame to hide all the detail.
Yes I could just not glue them so they are removable but I would like to try and make them as they are on the real thing.

Great progress! I don't know about the hinging ... looking at the arrangement I'm thinking side sliders but I am woefully uninformed on such things.

Hi all here is the next update, I would really love to add lighting to this but can’t find leds small enough.


It’s a good job I’ve not glued the cab on yet as I’ve missed some painting

Hi all here's another update, I thought I could improve this bit so I cut the moulded on straps off and made some of my own





Then I thought to myself I can improve on that too.



I do think my bench is getting quite full (and this is not all I'm working on)



Here's an assortment of the accessories so far made for this.

The accessories look great - looking forward to seeing them mounted in the vehicle. And I like the look of your bench, ships, cars and planes all on the go.

Hi all well thanks to Eddie Mc Vea and his pics here is the next update, I've added the missing cap holders to the hose clamps





There is actually loads of missing detail from this bit and I'm not sure I have the skill to add it but I may try (see if I can work up the courage)

Hi all here is the next update

I've hinged this bit with some sticky backed aluminium foil

Hi all well I'm not sure I will actually do this but I've added some blue leds for the emergency lights, maybe I will and maybe I won't we will just have to see how complex it gets.

Great detailing, the straps on the tarp? look realistic indeed.

Nice progress. Best of luck with the LED install - those can be a hassle but also very effective when they work.

Hi all well it has working emergency lights.

I've glued aluminium foil behind the headlight holes to help them look more like headlights.

Hi all well here is the next bit, you really get a lot of kit for your money with this beast but I think I'm nearing the end now.

Thanks mate.
Hi all near the end now, loads of decals to add but the basic kit is nearly done. This really is a lot of kit for the money and I have had so many ideas for different versions of this so this won't be my last build of this or the London bus (another incredible kit)

Hi all nearing the end now (loads of decals to add and a small amount of painting to do) I've really enjoyed this kit not found a bad fitting part on it, although it is quite complex and some parts need a few trial fits till you figure out how they actually go together.
