Hi Felipe,

the 966 is great. Didn't even know there is a 1/50 version of this classic. So ARPRA again... The wheels you used improve it a lot! Great paint job, too.

Keep it rolling!

Hi Felipe,

the 966C you've shown digs out fond memories of a holliday on a Greek island back in 2006: Near our hotel was a construction site - which I really appreciated. A operator kept his 966C busy all day in a trench like cut loading trucks. I remember how he turned his loader on the spot using the articulated steering. I have never seen this trick again: Just by steering movements, his loader started turning. Maybe not the best treatment for the tires, but impressive nevertheless.

Can't wait to see your next custom!

Max

For sure the 966C was one the best machines in Brazil, and one of my favorite models!

Frusso: Thanks for posting the sheepsfoot roller again. Why don't you remind the members about how you made it. It is a fascinating story. I would love to have a set like that. CAW

It's a good idea Quinela, I'll do it! I send the e-mail again, but now I receive a mensage. It's too big for your box. I will keep posting here!

Hi Felipe,

the sheepfoot roller is great - but the TF25 in DRESSER livery is just the thing. Are the decals still available? I love their color scheme...

The TD25 looks really great! Is not a simple model to do but the final look is amazing. I do not keep these decals with me, but I can do more!

They were made with PVC pipe and Japanese toothpicks.

Dear Dumper, I am extremely happy and proud of the invitation!

Will be a pleasure to be with all of you in one of the biggest collector event in the US.

I'm going to schedule for this event, I can not go this year, but maybe in one or two years! I'll try for sure!
