Guy you never disappoint. The Dan’s model dump truck, how do you rate those replicas. I have always thought about buying one but I don’t care for the resin, they do look very detailed though. I like the look of the dump body. Would like to know your opinion of them.
Thanks
Steve

Steve,

I'm not fond of all-resin models, tires included, but I must admit that these Dan Models are very detailed and professionally assembled.
I was very disappointed when I got the first IMC all-resin model (I think that it was the Sarens DAF 6x6 ballasted tow truck), but as these IMC models (Sarens DAF, Van Seumeren FAUNS and Pegaso) or Dan Models are impossible to find diecast elsewhere, there is no other way to get one.

I hope it helps.

A few vintage Azur Modelisme models at work:









Fleet Nr 4 is an ex-Army White B666 equipped with a tipping body (Angego kit built by ASAM), Nr 5 is a Willème W635 tipper (Minitrucks kit). Nr 9 was originally a Mack NR4 military tractor, bought from ASAM in kit form, it was modified into a tipper by Jean-Jacques.

Nice looking flatbed, seems you shared that one with me a year ago maybe? Inspired me to do one as well!

Rob,

That's correct.
I had some questions about that model on this same forum but in a different topic: that's why these pictures have already been displayed on DHS Diecast Forum.
Nice to see you here (as well).

Guy great shots and customization of the dump trucks, the East flatbed came out very nice along with the homemade load.

Guy the Faun looks very nice. What did you modify on the Freightliner?
Thanks

Steve,

The only (minor) mods were on the 5th wheel, so that the truck could tow any of my semi-trailers.
