Default Scania W.A. Prime Mover 1/14.5

Hello Mini Truckers

Danke you for the Messages.

I buy a normaly Wedico Kit in 2007



After 3 Yaers construction, is this the result.



Frame is from Wedico and my self, with Osswald and Wedico Spring also tuned (original to high). The Power Train is with a 82 Watt Faulhaber Engine and a 3-Shift Gearbox from Veroma.





The Fuel tank i make with 1mm Alu, inside is a 5 pack Battery from Orion with 5100mAh on each side.





Behind is the charing socket for the Battery





Inside the Toolbox is the Electrical rearpanel from Wedico




The Fender are from Wedico and is modifed by me. The Holders i made of Brass





This is the 1. Part, next Part will follow soon

Thank's Marcel

Oh, thanks im Surprised about your answers

In this Part i show you my Aussie Attachments, all of this i made by my self because it gives no Dealer for this Part's.

Airintake & Exhaust









The Exhaust is from Wedico (Century) but i must modyfied the Pipe, because it was to smal



Stoneguard for Windscreen

The Frame is Alu and the Net is from a frying pan oil guard (i hope this is corect).







Bull bar (Roo bar)

It beginns with a Aluminum Block like this



after lot of hours at the metal milling and drilling it would by like this









The Road Train sign is covered by a magnetig Plate





I know the Bull bar is not 100% Scale, it is a combination of 5 Bullbar's

Thanks Marcel

That bar is very functional and well built. I like the lights and the magnetic plates. And yes the frying screen is good stuff, it even comes in stainless if you aren't painting.

This is a beautiful looking Scania! I really like your eye for detail and the custom parts you made for it. This is what a Wedico should be. Seeing your truck completed, and how great it turned out, I can say the three years of building is well worth the effort and wait. I've been building my own Wedico, on and off, for 4 years, so now I don't feel so bad about it taking a long time!

Looking forward to seeing more photos!

Thanks

In this Part i show you some modification about the Cab. First i made a Alu plate for reinforcement the Cab, of course also for the new Cab look. The Alu plate have the same high like the Original Cab.



I modified also the Mudguard



The Cab look i made in Brass and is functional.





from the inside it looks like, he works like a sliding mechanism.



the new Cab entry



I need a another Cockpit for down Under because of the right hand drive. My Dealer in Swtzerland show me a RHD Wedico Cockpit (i was surprised, but Wedico made this for the british market). But the problem was the same it was too flat. After this i made one in ABS it looks better than the Original Wedico but it was lot of work.







I modified also the Mirrors, the Wedico's are not bad but a litttlebit square





The mirror effect are from a ABS-Mirror plate that i find by a Dealer.



At the Next Part i show you som kinds of unforeseen ?
