Hello Folks, After a rant about unhelpful size declarations on websites of body manufacturers the ensuing discussion pushed me over the edge to scratch-build a body for my SCX10. I’ve had several ideas what to put on top oft hat chassis, each of which had ist own pros and cons. Finally, the AEC Matador made the race. It does scratch a lot of my itches: · I really have a soft spot for these boxy, old british cabovers. Not pretty as in elegant, but a very special sort of charming. Watch „A Close Shave“ . · It ends the long lasting struggle about what to do about my King Hauler. Either an AEC Mammoth (a posh Matador for on-road use) with a flatbed trailer or a Scammell 100 Tonner / Highwayman / Pioneer mash-up with King Hauler proportions and a low-loader. This way there will be an AEC-style crate and an long-nose heavy-hauler. · It’s a full-size truck, so the model will be at a relatively small scale (1/11, see my rant about body sizes. Why would anyone call an SCX10 with a Land Rover body „1/10“?). People like large scale because you can show a lot of detail. Yes, you can, but you also HAVE TO. You don’t get away with simplification so easily. And coming from a ship-modelling background, I find any scale larger than 1/25 „big“. · The real thing is more like a garden shed in wheels and thus fits my ship-modelling methods and materials. So now that I reached something like a decision I have to press on before I change my mind again. One good way to do this is to make it public so you can’t chicken out so easily.
