Hello,
This are my newest additions to my collection. Dan does some real nice work. I should also thank Robert another forum member for the decals. Dan seems to be trying to cover most of the requested older US and Canadian HH works. I understand that he's going to do a whole series of US highway trucks, and tractor. I know his is working on a Dodge C900, Dodge Bighorn, Mack DM800. So be on the look out.

Is your interested in one of Dan's models I would called Dean with Dadscats at 828-698-7525, as I believe he has some available.

Hi guys,

You beat me to the punch. I was going to post some pics of the Pacific and the Autocar. The models look great. I am totally impressed with the detail on the trucks. I will post some pics of a KW oilfiled truck I have that was built by Dan.

Great looking models..The KW sure are my Favs. the only setback is that those are made of out resin. and the price I saw the reach well over $400.00 each. comparing with White metal models I dont know if I can pay that price., for a resin model even If nobody else make them .
Still Great looking models..( maybe if Dan built a kit and offer it for like $180 I will be willing to spend the money on it)

Those really are AWESOME models no doubt about it. Dan does an excellent job detailing them and making them look actually very real. The big problem for us in the USA is the Euro vs the US dollar. At 1 Euro = $1.47 USD it's just not practical to spend that kind of money. Need gas and food more.
But as I said Very nice models and practical for the overseas crowd.

Yes the price might sound high but looking at the detail on Dan's trucks vs Smith trucks, there really is no comparison. I am not sure if I would buy another Smith truck now that I have compared the two of them togeter.

Just my thoughts,

Landclearer,
I totally agree while not cheap these are way better than Smith trucks. Plus Dan building lot's of US heavy haul trucks, something that hasn't been available till now. I understand that he working on other, just wait and see.

The only problem it's: the decals are not supplied in the kits

There is nothing wrong With ASAM models,two different kind of builders,It you would like some weight for the money and use a display model then smith is you better choice,plus smith has more options at this point.and smith really dont make those kind of models any way.But the only bad thing about the resin models they are very fragil.but i do agree they are very detailed.If you are looking for any of the MIM models i do have some of them avail,plus i will be importing them for resale if anyone is interested.Just to let you know they take some time to get in as there built to order and limited.

Great post Graham. I think Smith could do the same detail if he did the same model. I also would pay those prices for that kind of model. I just don't see them around, thus I don't want one. Give me what I see everyday on the road. CAW

Hello Graham,

I am also a big fan in heavy haulage tractors.
The mainly problem with resin is always the dispatch because of the delicate parts.
A year ago I ordered the oilfield Kenworth 953 from Dan. In spite of good packing the spare wheel mounting was broken in parts.

Do you have any damaged parts on your shipped models?

Later I took the models directly at his booth in Bemmel (European Model Show in the Netherlands).

Best regards

Peter
