that looks like stock stuff you made. Soviet cars most had regular galvanized sheet + rubber on the edges fitted in the wheel wells to keep the from rusting out (didn't help a whole lot). The best cars that are still driving today in here are the ones that leaked oil all the time. Result was bottoms with constant oiling  :rofl:

I have used HDF (High Density Foam) for concrete product models and taken fiberglass molds from that. First a rough mold. Then chipson cast. Then tinker and modifie the chipson element and then taken final mold for concrete casting. These days haven't had a chance to do these things any more. Two component silicone is very useful these days for mold making. But ifyou do a model out of wood, you can also use ABS plastik and vacume forming. Make it in two parts. Top part and a bottom part, then glue together. Should be nice and durable.


Vacume forming tables are easy to make. What is a more problematic is getting plastic heated up evenly in a contolled way.

Got some cheap LED H4 bulbs. Well didn't work out so well. The connections had beed soldered on wrong inside the bulbs. Took them apart, resoldered the thing correctly. Made a quick vid from the dashcam to show what I mean. For now they are working.


And some nice snow pics of the thing.




And the interior

The Vans exhaust was making noise, took a look and took the end apart.

This is what I found.



Made a quick repair so I can still drive the thing until I get a new exhaust system.

Changed my Land Rover Discovery 1 to Volvo 740 "van" - hearse. It is a van as that is how the car is registered.

It is 1987 automatic with 2,3L carbed engine. Smooth and soft as floating on air.

well, my vans muffler broke today. Some A hole had some time welded in a new cat and damn I know I can't weld but damn these where some bad welds. As I had nothing else to support the thing under the car I used one of the cargo straps I had in the van.

Managed to get all my cars on one picture. Renault Master is a new addition. Wanted something with more space. It's a 9 seater minibus with 2.8L turbo diesel. Uses less fuel than my 4x4. The Land Rover will be on sale soon. Just need to fix some minor problems. Like leaking exhaust sticky handbrake and leaking front crank seal.


Behing the 4x4 is a Peuget Boxer van also 2.8L turbo diesel.

do something with that front end it looks like the original desinger had no imagination in that part (I think it need sqare headlights same stile as the rear ones). The rear of the car looks way cooler.

I'm keeping an eye on this thread, this thing you got has a lot of potential.

Did some work on one other oldtimer. We have a 1966 Yale forklift with an Opel 4cil engine in it. Managed to get a headgasget leak, so took it apart and but the old gasget in with special glue. As these parts are no longer made. It is a low compression pushrod oldschool cast iron lump. Damn these are old and inefficient, but these things last forever.


Just a pic to show our orange/red oldtimer forklift



Off with ze head...



And some parts need cleaning



Head surface cleaned






Is it tight... yeee it is tight.



all back together again



when I got home, one guy was exhausted
