Diecast Models- Scratch Built Models 2
In fact it is only the rears of these models that are scratch built usually using recycled materials. The cabs or prime movers are generally scrubbers that have been totally restored, repainted and in some cases after market parts fitted.
The Tanker os made from a metal pie with metal ends which have been ground down to a thinner rim. The chassis has been hand built as can be seen in a later photo. Wheel arches have been added. Dual axles with double rimmed tyres complete the look. In house decals have been added after painting.
