Topics I've Started

Moebius Smoothie Goin' (Painted)

14 April 2015 - 05:38 PM

Figured I'd do a thread on this one.....

Pretty cool setup as the original, but with a few omissions and extras.....

Let's start with the omissions....
Very little decal options....(That's it)

And the plusses.....
You get a choice of rear door options.....(I really like that, as I can use whichever one I don't use to scratch build a trailer or two)
Front and rear doors are no longer plated.....(I found this to be a bit on the overkill side with the other one)
Box art is beautiful with that orange.....

The only thing I think that would have made this kit better is the addition of some trailer skirts......

I'll get to building sometime, this week.....

DR Giant Straight Truck

I finally decided to post this one....I had it pretty much done for a while, but had no load to speak of....I finally threw a few things on the back and can call it finished....I'm happy with the end result, but I didn't realize the fenders were cambered like the are....It was too late to do anything about, so this is the way it sits.....Other than that, I good with it....Lesson learned....The next one I'll pay a little closer attention.......

I was also undecided as to whether I wanted the stake bed or flat bed, so I made the stake bed removable.....No load for that, though....

1/16 Scale Pete 359 Wrecker (The Build Thread)

22 March 2015 - 05:02 PM

It has been, recently, brought to my attention that I never did a build thread for this one.....Many of you may have seen it in its completed form, but per request, I will go ahead and post it.....Now, this may take a while.....I'll have to post it piecemeal, as to keep from losing any data because of my "not so new" computer...

In the beginning....I had to do some work on the cab to make it a little nicer inside.....

The hood got a little treatment, too.....

Had to add some mounts for the new air cleaners that would, eventually, adorn the sides.....

Using this, of course......Hard to believe all these parts yield only a curbside model.....Still, though....It's one of my favorites.....
