Looking For Build Ideas

20 February 2011 - 07:42 PM

Hey guys, I am looking throughout the net for pics of cool custom 1:1 Western Stars and Superliners and I am not having much luck. Does anyone here have some pics they can post up for some build ideas? I have an idea for the Superliner, but IDK if I will do it that way or not. So if you have pics of 1:1s or models, please post them.

Thanks
Benjamin.

Replicating Snow????

29 January 2011 - 04:09 AM

Hey there guys, some of you may know that I am building a snowplow and I found a board that would be perfect for a single vehicle diorama. I'm wanting to replicate it plowing a parking lot or sitting there in the snow with the plow up. I need to know how to replicate snow. Any ideas?

Snowplow Tutorial???

24 January 2011 - 11:16 AM

Hey guys, I am building a Plow truck, and I need to build the blade and mounting system for it. I remember seeing a tutorial for this on the net somewhere, but I'll be darned if I cant find it now. Does anybody out there have a tutorial for this?

Thanks
Benjamin.

Resin 8 Lug Wheels

12 January 2011 - 07:30 PM

Hey guys, I have noticed a lack of aftermarket wheels for us pickup truck builders, so I went through my wheels to see what I had for 3/4-1 Ton trucks. Found out I have 4 styles of wheels. I am thinking about having a quality caster cast them and make them available and need to know if there is a market for them. Here they are, so please view and vote, and if wanted, please comment. Thank You. PS: The tires are for display purposes only.

1981 Chevrolet C20

Hey guys, this is a project that I started about 3 years ago. I started with an 84 GMC kit minus all the 4x4 parts. I cleaned the cab up, found the correct grille, corrected the dash, working on correcting the door panels. Then this project sat dormant for about a year and a half, until a fellow member here, send me the second bed I needed for the LWB conversion. For this I used the tutorial from Terry Jesse. For the suspension up front, though it may not be correct, I stole it from a Lil Red Express that I got from another member here, since mine was a 2 wheel drive. I got to looking through my wheel box and I found a set of aluminum style mag wheels that are 8 lug, fitting for a 3/4-1 ton truck, and decided to use them. I think this truck is coming along really well, and the 1:1 would be very happy to see this being built. Well, enough blabbering, on with the pics.

Here it is when I first got the resin grille for it. Thank you Cargostar.

Then it sat dormant in a box for a while.
