Building of the CMA-SCANIA Flecha Azul scale bus

 

The sizing and positioning step of the lower compartments is almost over. The luggage compartments are sized, now other compartments like the battery, tank and engine will be worked. It was also done in this stage the dimensioning of the lateral structure of the roof and windows.

Building of the CMA-SCANIA Flecha Azul scale bus

 

One more update. Unfortunately, the prototype is still without the windshields openings. I hope that in the next update the whole prototypes of the sides are done. It can be noticed that one window is lacking. With this last window one can have notion of the whole length of the bus.

Building of the CMA-SCANIA Flecha Azul scale bus

 

The scale CMA-SCANIA bus is, now, being worked at the level of the windows. This part is not entirely detailed yet. This time the works go to the roof level and then back to the luggage compartments and other parts to be re-detailed.

Building of the military Mercedes-Benz LG 1819 scale model

 

The sequence of the build of the Mercedes-Benz LG1819 truck miniature brings the tank version as a new option for those who enjoy collecting models of military vehicles. Another Mercedes-Benz scale truck to fuel the collection of miniatures and still allow other applications to the robust 6x6 tractor. The tank version is almost completed.

Building of the CMA-SCANIA Flecha Azul scale bus

 

Another partial assembly was made in order to check measurements and to give notion of dimensions. It also aims to show the progress of the project to the people who made the reservation of the miniature and the people who, in some way, are accompanying the development of the miniature project of the bus. The base of the project is the CMA III and the window at the bottom of the door was added in this assembly so that it could give notion of how it would be in the versions of the CMA IV onwards.

Building of the CMA-SCANIA Flecha Azul scale bus

 

The stamper for the standard of the lower section of the side of the CMA was developed. From this stamping will be trimmed the doors of luggage compartments and other pieces that make up the side below the level of the floor. This is the first stamping test without completing the stamper inlet and outlet guide adjustments.

Building of the CMA-SCANIA Flecha Azul scale bus

 

The fluted aluminum on the sides of the CMA-SCANIA Blue Arrow bus are the details that most impress at first glance, but they are also a critical point of the project at the time of modeling. The alignment as well as the distance between the flutes of the sheet are not very easy to leave with a pleasant appearance.
A linear crimping machine has been developed specifically for this project. In the photo is the result of the first stamping of the top of the side still without the alignment guides on the stamper.

Creation of a section on the site to show several photos that, because they do not represent a sequence of a certain model, have not been shown until then. Also, Old Car Show Events photos will be part of these albums. However, the goal is not to limit the albums to just car-related photos.
