DAF "DEMKA" truck from Artitec

I bought Artitec's DAF "Demka" today which is now the first truck to serve Valkenveld (Artitec No. 487.041.02).
Original DAF "DEMKA" on the premises of the N.V. Nederlandse Staalfabrieken DEMKA, previously J.M. de Muinck Keizer at Havenweg 7, Utrecht. The truck is carrying a load for Philips. More information on Demka can be found hier. Source: hetutrechtsarchief

Warehouse weathering

I took a view quick shots to look at my two warehouses. I found out that you discover flaws in a model more easily on an image than looking at the building in reality. Also I am sooo unsure about the colors and weathering. I think I will have to tone it down..
