    Victorian and Sitec: Many thanks for the encouraging words.

    If I had the choice, the AK 2628 would have been my choice, far; longer distance between axles, a bit more powerful, more place to play with not having to plan for a longer overhang.



    But 6x6 was my choice from the beginning, and the 1221 I is in amazing good conditions. It is not coincidence that you found the other truck for spare parts just after getting it. It was right the truck for you.

    The steering wheel is on the wrong side, though, he, he.

    Glad if this story helps anyone to build his own dream.

    Kind regards.

    Sorry for the lack of updates. I have been working, but updating this and other two threads have become a little hard with few time remaining after regular and extra work.

    I will show some progresses as soon as I can.

    Hi:

    Just a little update to show the present state of the project. You must never loose your faith and keep working no matter what. After many problems an a lot of hard work I put the cabin back on the frame today. Lots of connections to make and lot of fun ahead.

    I am happy.

    Cheers.

    Default Good work!

    It's going to be brilliant! Keep going, as you have a truck that looks like a truck again!
