NAG Büssing- My first build
« on: December 05, 2018, 11:34:17 PM »
Hello,
wanted to introduce you to my first Dio. This is a Büssing 8000 S13 from Revell and the Italerie Truckers. The truck was only refined with wire, aluminum foil, etc.. The rust is real and was made by myself with a battery, salt water and a  nail. (At that time I didn't know any pigments)
The paintwork was done with body paint from the rattle can, Revell paints, water paints and oil paints.
The Dio is made of Styrodur and treated with gypsum and sand. The wooden structures are made of balsa wood and the crane, the hall and the sheet piles of electric cable ducts.
I changed the figures slightly to make them look less like American truckers.

The whole scene takes place in Scotland on Islay at a dock where used barrels for the Bruichladdich distillery are loaded.
The Büssing has found its way there as a left-hand-driver, because his German previous owner lost him in a card game on Ilay.

Excellent result! The weathering and detail work are outstanding. The whitewall tires are a nice touch also.

I feel the winds and can even taste the salty air and a good Scottish Whisky.

Fantastic, can almost hear the wind whistling through the rusted out fenders.

Wow, your first dio and such a great work! It shows already somehow your own style.
I like it!

Cheers,
Frank

Thank you all for your kind comments. First it was only a tester but then this build was really enjoyable, but it also showed me the extreme limitation of figures in 1:24th, so I went over to 1:32nd /1:35th as there are more figures in interesting poses.

Incredible Manni. As i said of your other work - you should be picked up by the film industry - Weta Workshop etc for this amazing attention to detail.

Cheers,
Alistair
