Resin Realm '55 Cadillac Coupe DeVille?

03 February 2015 - 05:58 PM

Wanting to build my squad's mid 50's Cadillac ambulance. Will probably need two of these kits, or one complete and one "damaged'... Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Removing Molded Surface Details?

02 February 2015 - 10:02 AM

Hi Gang,
Just received this Crown Premiums 1/24 scale diecast 1950 Ford Stepvan to replicate my hometown's original "Emergency Unit".
1st-Rescue-Truck_web.jpg As you can see, the diecast has 2 sets of horizontal raised bars that need to be removed.

Silhouette Cameo - Cutting out Decals?

26 January 2015 - 07:38 AM

May be a long shot, but was wondering if anyone out there has used one of these machines to cut out their decals? I make my own, and was considering buying one of these for making masks and such. As it is a "special" function, didn't expect to find info on it on the Internet. Specifically, can you set it to cut out an image a particular amount away from the edge of that image? Kind of how you would specify an object's "outline" width in a graphics program. Thanks for any info!

Anyone make a "Regular Cab" from the Meng F350 Kit?

29 December 2014 - 03:49 PM

Just curious. My Meng F350 kit that was a Christmas present arrived today. So many ideas are flowing through my mind as to the possibilities. I am considering cutting down the crew cab to a regular cab. Wondering if anyone has done this yet. I don't expect that it would be difficult to do, just looking to see what others have done. Thanks in advance!

Interesting Idea

23 December 2014 - 11:27 PM

For those of you into off road rescue vehicles, I wanted to share this with you. One of the rescue squads near where I grew up served a heavily wooded area of Southern New Jersey. They outfitted a Ford Bronco to hold a Stokes basket. They removed the front passenger seat and adapted the space to mount brackets to secure the Stokes basket. A side facing seat was mounted behind the driver to allow for an EMT to care for the patient. Brilliant! Now that a few 3-D printed Stokes baskets are available, I am planning on doing both a Bronco and a Jeep Rubicon this way!
