Many thanks for the clarification Chucca. I thought the one on the right is the 3D printed version. Really looks impressive. I have seen a 3D demonstration but the price at the time scared me off. I can wait. Now my next question did you use the broken support base as your guide in setting up the printing formula.

I used the broken support as a guide to make a scetch in Tinkercad.
Tinkercad is a free program to make scetches for 3D printing.
You save your scetch as a stl file and than you sliced it for 3D printing.

TinkerCAD James. It is a type of drafting or graphics program for 3D work from what Patric has said.

I have never see one done with a blue box like that. Looks good. or is it Grey? It is old too or at least older as it has the metal caps on the tank. The later ones are all plastic

The box is grey.

I made the box for the cement truck.

The last picture is better. I can see it is now a dull silver or Aluminum grey. That is how I did my restorations, in a dull Aluminum finish. Looks in pretty good condition too.

Looking good! Nice box too Patrick, well done, As I am restoring a ceent mixer for a customer at the moment, I wonder how in real life this cement truck is used. Is it for transporting dry cement powder?

Theo, that is correct. Dry weight of what would be Portland Cement over here in BC and in the USA. Europe and GB would have another supplier but who and where from I don't know.
