Default Custom-made ESSO fueltruck

It is frustrating in the 1-400 GSE world. Nothing with quality available on the market, except the "3rd world" country GJ, the extreme expensive Hogan stuff and the new Herpa busses. I hope that all major manufacturers see the high demand from the worldwide collectors to produce quality which is matching the stunning airline models! Therefore made for my realistic Frankfurt diorama a custom-made fuel truck. This is 2x GJ fueltruck, combined with Dragon catering truck front part and evergreen styrene plus selfmade decals!

While not of the correct scale, here is an early attempt by one of the "big" names" in diecast 50yrs ago (Budgie-Morestone)...too bad it does not fit well with most of our model diaoramas!;

...my approach is to GJ PX AC and the rest of true to scale manufacturers - there is a demand for new modern GSE
please make it happen !!!!
