Scania 6x4 Rigid Long Crewcab L&B Fire Brigade Suport Unit

Where to start.........

Well... I'm currently in the planning stages of my build, but I thought I'd share my thoughts with you all for comments and sugestions...

I'm going to be mashing together the following:

1x Scania R620 Kit,
1x Additional R460 or R620 cab,
2x Tamiya Scania low roof conversion kits

to make a Long Crewcab.

This is to then be followed by a scratch built rear end for the truck, which will hve 4x sliding doors. Is also going to be carrying a moffet forlift on the back too.

Sounds a lot more simple than I think its gong to be, but I'm looking forward to it.

Here's sme pics to show you what it should look like once completed:

Hi Graham,
I actually found your pics somewhere and focused on your cut lines on your cab to basically flip them back to front to make the long crewcab as used by the fire service.
