Big Rig Hood & Fender ?

08 September 2014 - 06:27 AM

I have noticed a lot of modelers paint the hood and fenders seperate. My question is how do you glue the two together after painting without disolving the paint ? I use liquid cement and it is not friendly when it comes in contact with a painted surface.  Do you use a CA type cement ?


New / old Project in the works

07 September 2014 - 07:50 AM

Some of you know I recently moved . I am still in the process of getting my modeling room set back up.

Before the move I had purchased several items to build this Fall.  One of them was this Peterbilt assortment of resin and other kit parts. Honestly at the time I was only intrested in the Bill Signs chrome trees included.

Several days ago I opened this package and actually looked at it.

Somebody had done some really nice work and had a vision that I feel should be continued on.  This will be a completly different build for me as I really dont care for stretched trucks.

But I feel this truck needs to be built for the time already invested in it. I will be repainting the work already done.

Here is a teaser pic


I really like the door panels and the dash is nicely done with toggle switches even.

Stay tuned  :)

Got a nice set of doubles but no dolly to join them. Anyone have a spare dolly - rebuidable or other wise ?



Thank you.

Tag Axle for the modeler

21 June 2014 - 01:55 PM

My current neighbor runs a trucking company. Weekends are normally heavy maintenance as the trucks run Mon - Fri.

I went over to see what all the noise was today and to my delight they are installing a new tag axle - but wait this is a kit for using old steer axles that the king pins haven't gone out of yet and easily found in truck wrecking yards.

The pics tell the story.
