Really very nice.
were the Scania mirrors straight forward to fit? they really add to the look of the cab.

Best Regards

What's not to like.

It really looks like the real thing. That paintwork looks so solid. Smashing job.

Well done indeed. :AG

Thanks everyone.

Mirrors easy to fit, you get a template guide where to drill with the Verkerk kit.

The paint work is solid, it got lots of coats then a varnish.

Working on the interior now plus the trailer.

Drives really nice and the servonaut V8 sound really rocks.

Good to have it done now to add a few bits. :TU
