Hello,

These are the Scania LK140 and LKT141 metal built in 1:25 scale. All scratch built in tinplate.





This is when I was making tests with the cab panels. This first assemblage was not used.



Posted here by mistake. I should have posted it in the Model Truck section. Maybe the moderator will move it later.

mammoth, thank you;
Tacho, thank you;
hayseed, thank you;
Mrsmackpaul, thank you.

I make the models with molded tinplate. I make the mould in the hardest way I Know. They are sculpted in steel without the proper tools. In my website there is an article about it, but I do not know if it is allowed to mention the website here.

I forgot to say that these models are not finished yet. I will change the tires and make the lacking details.

Except South America, I do not know in what continents and countries Scania made these models. In Europe, for example, the cabs are a little different.

cemeNTepede, thank you.

It seems that Scania is very popular in Australia.
By the way, once I had my models published in the Scania Experience Magazine of Australia.

Mrsmackpaul, thank you.

I have not had time to update the site, but surely there is much of this stuff there. It is in Portuguese. I began to translate to English, but my scarce time and the little audience from the English comunity made the translation to be paused. Anyway, I intend to continue it.
The site address is: www.oficinaaberta.com.br


Due to the mentioned reason, one may notice that the English version is less updated.
