WOW what a beautiful HH collection you have! Man where do you display all them, one room or multiple rooms???
Thanks for sharing all your models with us this year.

Merry Christmas,
Jeff


I have one display cabinet that measures 14' x 7' x 2' where some models are displayed. The rest are boxed up in the attic Sad

But I do have longer term plans.....................

Merry Christmas,

Thanks for showing these tremendous photos Paul, it gives us collectors a birds eye view of the models before deciding whether to buy or not the models. the Donnell & Ellis and Chris Bennetts are on my shopping list but unsure of the Heanor
Looking at the photos of the real truck, the rear wheel arches are one complete mudguard like the East West,Wj Law and the W,O,Scotland all PCM commisions. So why the ugly looking mudguards ??????????????????
Heanor will be a maybe, but i like the photos of the Eisele
Well done Paul, tell Christian to cut you in for some commission. LOL

Just a small update of an existing model.

I asked Hummer13 (Jason) to build me a load to match the real one that the Kohler Schwerlast truck has hauled.

Here is the real one, courtesy of Heavy Transport World



And here is my truck with Jasons creation:





Personally I think he did a great job!

Wow, that's an amazing piece of scratch building Applause

May I ask what it's made from?. It almost looks like copper but would it be plastic?.

Ditto...though with the going prices on Plastruct material, Jason probably could build it cheaper with copper, brass, pretty much any precious metal. d'oh!

Tell me about it the parts I purchased for the turbine load was over $100d'oh!

Glad you liked it Paul, sorry I missed those 3 small pieces I just never saw them til now.
I guess this is going to be the year of trailer loads and excavator bucketsTeeth I like doing these large loads makes these heavy haul trucks look so much better. Anyone have any ideas let me know

This is what I hope to do but there are no hooks on the trailers so I have not yet figured out a way to do this. Would add to the authenticity though!

Well my Stef Heylen turned up today and I have to say I am very happy. Unfortunately I did not have time to take many pictures as I am about to flee the country yet again B)







I hope to take some more and better pictures at the weekend.
