Topics I've Started

Scratchbuilt Timpte Super Hopper

31 May 2015 - 02:58 PM

This is a build for a friend of mine. After finishing a model of one of his trucks, he wanted me to make a model of his grain trailer to go with it. So yesterday I started scratchbuilding this trailer.

So far I added ribs to the sides and made the basic shape of the trailer. I still have lots of work to do, but it is starting to take shape.

Inspiration for common model kits

23 May 2015 - 03:58 PM

I finally got around to scanning some of the pictures that I have of trucks that my family has owned over the years. I picked out a few that would be easy to replicate with available model kits.

Modern punch side livestock trailer

08 May 2015 - 06:50 AM

Would there be any interest in a kit for a modern punch side livestock trailer? If I were to make something, would you rather get a full kit with wheels, axles, etc, or would you just want to save a few bucks and just get the sides, roof, and front? What sort of price would something like this go for?

Well I decided to start one of these. I'm planning on keeping it pretty stock other than the wheels and tires. I swapped out the kit parts for a set of super single wheels. I got the box together this morning, now to add all the little details.

Peterbilt Heavy Hauler

24 February 2015 - 06:17 PM

All of these heavy hauler builds lately has me itching for a build. I need something to pull the lowboy I just finished, so I thought I would make a heavy hauler from a snap Pete. I am thinking I will cut it down to a daycab, add a drop axle, move the fuel tanks forward, maybe even modify the cab and hood to be a short hood 379. One thing I need to decide is what tires I want to use on the front,
