Unfortunately, I dont believe the low roof from oranda is low enought for me.

After several attempts and a few hours later. I have managed to take a CAD drawing from the Scania Bodybuilder website, increased it to 275% and then made a 1/14 CAD drawing of the "Long Crewcab".

Using both the side and top views, it looks like a fully custom roof from scratch is required.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Work begins......

I've chopped a 12mm section off of the bottom of the standard roof and once I've got the other cab joined up to the first one. I'll then be making the roof section longer, covering up the holes in the top of the roof from underneath, then pouring in a resin to fill in the space in the middle of the plastic edging. After what I caan imagine to be lots of sanding, the foor will be finished of with styrene stips to create the pits and peaks just like the real Crewcab roofs.
