For the construction and building of this model please see below at the Heiploeg-model.

The finished model of the Feenstra & Zonen Dokkum LS56.

The example for this model: Scania-Vabis LS5650 with Heiwo container and Thermo King refrigerator (source: Internet).

On behalf of the colour scheme this picture of a Heiploeg L56 was used (source: Internet).

Because of the short nose of the L(S)56-type this nose had to be self-constructed in order to make a decent scale model, The basic forms were cut from styrene plate...

...of different sizes. With the help of a nail file/sanding bar the parts were filed into the right shape.

Meanwhile the cabin parts were cut and the chassis was put on wheels. The steering wheels were made functioning with the help of Herpa parts.

Two models of the LS5650 were made at the same time, one with a Be-Ge day cab and the Heiploeg-model with a sleeper of the same producer.

In order to make the engine visible the hood has to be able to be opened of course...

The Heiwo container with removable roof. In order to keep the flanks in the right shape two crosswalls were placed in between.

Both models received a refrigerator. The ladders were soldered from 0,3 mm newsilver wire.

Two times a Scania-Vabis LS56 (-50), look for the differences...

The silos have been made of small deo rolling balls...

...which have been made conic with the help of a small funnel and 2-components glue.

The ring form of the ball holders was made by heating a styrene strip around a brass tube from the inside.

During construction of the semi-trailer chassis.

The balls are falling nicely into the chassis.

The semi-trailer as finished roughly. Handrails and rack were soldered from 0.3 mm phosphorbronze wire.

The trailer has been made in the same way as the semi.

The construction of the tractor has been started with making the mud boards.

Because of the typical form of the bulk containers...

...these cement silo trucks are called 'ball trucks' in the Netherlands.
