It has been quite a while since I visited this forum but I'll try to do it more frequently. The reason now is I just finished a new truck and displayed it during a modelshow last weekend  :classic:

It's a typical Dutch truck this time, a FTF brick truck with drawbar trailer and vintage loading crane. The truck is originating from 1978 and when I saw a picture of it in the mid 80s I really wanted to see a model of it. It took till October 2011 when I eventually started. I had to use many unconventional building techniques for the cab but it was really fun building.

Please read more about it on my website. There you'll find some more pictures as well

Looks very beautiful, but as for a lot of your creations, a lot of questions are remaining such as : is it motorized, what are exactly the functions, work they well,... Why don't you make some videos?

Thanks for the compliments all! Yes I know, I haven't posted the excavator so far while I got since 2009 already. With a friend of mine I made a video and took some pictures. Next thing I will upload it this Atlas excavotor. I also have the modified CAT D7R with PF. Same story here; will be uploaded soon  :classic:

I look at your site quite often and thought you had stopped building, really glad you haven't.

Thanks! No, I didn't stop building but sometimes I more busy with other stuff. Still have lot of things to build but I need time and inspiration of course

About a week ago I also took some studio pictures. I wanted to show the engine and I could better take those pictures inside than outdoors. I'm very used to take pictures outside but this doesn't look bad either.
