    Looking a bit more like a crew van now. 1st stage of cleaning done just waiting for filler to arrive then I can give everything a really good sand over.

    2nd pic is the earlier Leyland Terrier cab front which will also be available.

    2019-04-12 18_59_14-Autodesk Fusion 360 (Startup License).jpg Final.jpg Delighted to final annouce the long awaitined Leyland FG crew van and chassis cab should be ready next week. Having sold the final two Class 26/27 test kits I got enough to buy the silicone and at time of posting the first two moulds are being prepared.

    Hopefully will have a finished display model by end of next week.

    Yes no problem. I've spent a lot of time cleaning the masters and am trying some new moulding techniques to reduce flash so fingers crossed.

    Really looking forward to this one, I would like to use the chassis cab to replicate the beaver tail recovery lorry I had a few years back :thumbs:

    Cheer's, Pete.

    That stl file looks like it could be fantastic. Some great detail there.

    Would look good 3D printed!

    Test castings prior to clean up - all going well bar two moulds that need bedding in.

    Better pics tomorrow but detail came out well and texture is smooth.
