Bad news about Sisu conversion kit – due to lack of clear resin, casters did not send the first batch of kits last week.

The latest information – package has to be send Friday, March 30, so we are waiting it here in the first week of April.

Our apologies for delaying with release.

Sisu R500 master patterns; progress pictures

Another today’s update about masters of Sisu R500.

First of all I have to say, that I need to make all new front bumper, because I have made some errors with first generation bumper. Also I decided to remove side window, because this window is option, that offers one Finnish company, but not Sisu. And, finally, I have made side steps.

 

That’s all for now, more news as soon as possible.

Sisu R500 master patterns. First look

Today I would like to share the first pictures of my new project, the Finnish truck Sisu R500. These are very interesting truck in my opinion: Caterpillar engine, Fuller gearbox, not usual frames, some special chassis like 10×2 dump truck for example… But let’s return to master patterns.

I used Renault Premium by KFS, M&G Mouldings and A&N Model Trucks kit as donor for my new master patterns. I replaced high roof of the cab with new flat roof, made 2 new windows, restored panel lines and made changed grille. Currently cab and front bumper are mostly done.

Here are some pictures of current look of master patterns. I used a frame from one of my very early model, DAF 95. This is just for example; I do not plan to use DAF chassis like a donor.

Criticism is very welcome!
