|The finished double cab lorry at the Nystrup Gravel loco shed with a load of brown coal. Summer 1946.|
The lorry is a combination of a converted chassis from the ICM-kit of a Ford T917G and a resin cab made in Brazil. See the lorry at an earlier state here.
Haulage contractor Hansen's double cab lorry was a former German army lorry, possibly commandeered from civilian use in Norway and brought to Denmark during the German occupation. After being taken over by Hansen in May 1945 the lorry received a coat of green paint, new head lights and license plates. Due to its large cab the lorry could carry a good work force; very convenient as any bulk load had to be shovelled off the cargo bed.

|Decals fitted on front doors. Windows still without glass and cab interior only test fitted. A steering wheel is still missing. In the cargo bed one can faintly see the heightened insert made from foam board to carry the load of brown coal.|
|Clear plastic card pieces made to fit the cab windows. All specially made to a particular window and consequently clearly marked out and taped in place on a piece of A4.|
|Coal and wicker baskets added, glass in the cab windows and weathering begun. The lorry is almost finished - and my work table is beginning to look fairly cluttered.|
