While looking for something else, I found quite a few old photos from the old Plastic Cowboy Model Truck website - over 1400 of them, so I uploaded them to my Fotki page tonight.

A lot of these are small and fuzzy - back in the days of low band width availability, Sony Mavica low-resolution pics and bad cropping.

Enjoy !

Tim

Wow! How long did it take to load 1400 pic? This is what got me back into the hobby. I'm just overwhelmed by the talent & quality of the models out there. When I started modeling, I did it for relaxation, mostly only seen by a few close friends or trucking buddies. Where I live you had no model shows in the area. If you wanted reference material on a new truck, you had to drive a 100 miles at least. Now just about anything you want to build is only aclick away. I could rattle on all nite, but I've got 1390 pictures left to look at!

Good post. I've run across a few of those still on the odd server in the ether.

How long did it take to upload? About 2 hours of non-stop drag and drop.

The old Angelfire site still sits out there - sort of sad.

Here's a memory - who remembers Photopoint and how it screwed us all over on our photos?

Not sure what it is, but I've always liked the looks of the KW Aerodyne Cabover and the Double bunk KW cabovers.

Did Will drive this one?

In "In Tandem", Will drove a 1972 or 1973 K100 flat-top for "California Lines".

Hi Jim,
Yes I remember Frank Converse (Will) driving the KW cabover in the first episode, what I was referring to is the model Tim created of the Pruitt KW Aerodyne cabover in the attached link :mellow: It's a great looking model, of course I like the BJ& the Bear Aerodyne just a tad bit more. I also like Tim's double bunk KW cabover seen in the Misc KW section.
