Where do you buy your Eastern Express models? I've shopped my
examples here in Stockholm but I think one could get a much better
price by mailorder from some stockist.
The license plates are homemade. I have done them in Illustrator and
just printed them on ordinary paper. I haven´t got the fonts right
yet. Have to do some more research on old number plates.
Next project will either be the Airborne Dozer Clark CA-1 from
Calibre35, or a 2 ton Jib boom crane, or the old Lanz 35 HP Bulldog
thats been lying around for too long now, or another Plus models
car, or.....I'm also looking forward to get the new Mercedes from
Plus models. I'm going to have the old Swedish king Gustav VI Adolf
driving around on a visit in my neighbourhood in that car.
I suppose I also should be doing some rolling stock. But I never

moderate weathering. I had a disapointing result using the 'old

the end of and mounted a cut-down tank from Italeri's GMC water
tanker. The EE-kits have great potential. I have also used one for a
loco-project and it seems as if the recent Smokey Bottom-critter
also has some relation to the EE-kit (some of the parts look very

bought mine directly from Terry Bradley. The decals reacted fine
with my favourite decal-setting-solution, Gunzes decal fluid.
> I think you have done a very, very good job on the figures. I hope
to be able to catch up on my painting abilities soon.
> The license plate on the Ford - is that home made or what? My own
1950-type Danish license plates are very coarse photocopies of
plates from old books - I will have to develop them further.
> I enjoyed your photos very much and hope to see more - what is
your next project?
