Scania R620 into M26 Dragon wagon

Recommended Posts

Time for something different.

Always wanted a truck to haul my tanks along. Stumbled across this on a truck forum and was well priced with the mfc03.

Removed the cab today. Sold to a friend.

Keeping the mfc03 for sounds and some lights for the M26.

Dragon wagon conversion and axle extensions ordered.

Photos from Roland showing Euro truck frame for those interested.

Also found some correct tyres. Not cheap but look good.

Whilst waiting for parts for other builds (M51 and Jagdpanther) I decided to start the Dragon Wagon cab.

One evening and the basic cab is built.

Still lots to do but the shape is good.

Finally got some time back on the DW.

 

Hinges for the doors and windows tonight. Open and close on all of them.

Small update, some stunning 3D parts on the way from Alwyn.

 

New wheels and tyres sorted for the trailer.

 

Got some plastic work on the trailer to do but the end is in sight.

Thank you Barry :)

I give you ‘Double Trouble’

Stencils didn’t come out too badly, tiny bit of paint bleed but the weathering hasn’t started yet.

Just over two years and calling it finished :)

Re painted and re weathered the trailer after a paint code malfunction. Matching colours and weathering now :D

Enjoy.
