I'll throw my name in here. I have a Paystar that I built the engine only. I'm collecting parts for my "Movin On" KW and I'm sending off my shipping fee for a Diamond Reo that's partly built and will be torn apart and rebuilt.

List is updated! Wow 23 enrtrants just in the first day! I didn't even count how many trucks so far, but as long as everything goes like this, the MCM Truck Stop lot will be a full one! B)

Oh and just so everyone doesn't think I started this build without an idea of what I'm going to build, I do have an idea. I just have to get the big Ford finished for the CBP it is in on another site before I start this one! B) If I go with the present plan, which I probably will, I will probably have 10 kits involved with the build, that's counting the support vehicles and police escort for two heavy haulers.

I gotta have cars for the hauler...which is a mutant plan for a diorama depending on how into the idea I get.

Chris, just a word of advice here, have some small clamps and super glue on hand for the trailer. I'm not saying you will have the same problem, but my trailer that I'm building for another project had a slight warp in the roof. I used clamps to hold it down while the super glue set up.

Posted Image

If you do happen to have the same issue, clamp the roof down in position, and at the back of the trailer where the roof and meet, there will (or at least should) be a small square at the end of the joint between the wall and roof. Put a few drops of thin super glue in that square area and hold the trailer at about a 45 degree angle, with the rear facing up. This will allow the super glue to run the entire length of the trailer side to roof joint. If you want, I'll take a pic of the area I'm talking about for you.


Thanks for the advice Highway. It would be great if you could shoot me a pic of the area you are talking about .

I'd still like to join!! Not sure what to build, maybe a nice resin B model Mack on a DM 600 frame? Still trying to get the winter toys prepped for the season. I should be done by next week and start on this soon after.

Thanks,
Rick

Sure thing, Rick, I'll add your name to the list, and the B model sounds like a great idea. ;)

Matt, if I commit to doing this, it means that I have to finish my Mustang convert for my CBP AND the 1983 Levin for the Japanese car CBP first. I also need to get to work on my KW W900A and trailer.



IF, and that is a BIG IF, I do this........I have some Pete 359s that will collide to form one, and a 48' dropdeck airride that will tage along behind it (I will not mention the tarped load yet).

No problem, Bradley, I have those two builds to finish, too, along with a few others! :lol:

I can't remember how far along you were with the Kenworth, but as long as it's not too close to being finished, you could enter it along with the Petes. :(

I'll add you to the list, just in case, and sorry, but I don't know how I missed this post yesterday. Good thing I was rereading today. ;)

I'll have to dig up the thread on its' ill-fated build (or should I say its ill-started build). I have the engine basically together and the frame stretched/sleeper stretched. No body filler has yet hit any part of this project and the only thing painted is the engine (in base coat of NEW CAT YELLOW). The trailer deck and chassis has been stretched from 40' to 48'.......that is the only thing done with the trailer.



I must warn you now though, I have a Thunderbird TurboCoupe I am also working on that I hope to build to a competitive level for the late 2011/early 2012 season, so it might just take some of my time as well (what is it with me and FOX chassis Fords?).


Thanks Matt.

No problem, Bradley, and it sounds like the Kenworth is not far enough along that it would be a problem. I hope you do decide to join us! :)

I was just a little bored the other night and was checking out YouTube and found this video of one of my most favorite trucking songs. It has some very nice pics in it and might even give you some ideas! :D



I also noticed one of the trucks in one of the pictures could possibly be one I used to drive! I want to see if anyone can guess which one, and I'll start with one clue, it's a Freightliner. :lol:
