    great color choice, goes well with interior & wood bed floor colors...
  5. 2 Hole 22.5 Budds from Scenes Unlimited

    Any update on when these will be available Danny? These are a big deal, big plastic never offered these 2 ton rims. This would be a natural for the Dodge L 700 ( the original IMC box art showed these rims) and the Ford Louisville or C series .
  6. KJ Humphries has a fan 3D printed. Take a look here. http://kdhumphr.wixsite.com/double-take-replicas/product-page/cabin-fans
  7. Racing, Hot Rod, truck and aircraft engines by FTB

    Very appropriate with today being the Indy 500.
  8. Parts help question.

    Geno, You might want to check out the NAPA catalog and copy a picture of the fan then reduce it in size and mount the picture within an outer ring and a back. Might be worth a try.

    I am that old guy in the corner chuckling! These scales have literally been around for centuries. I took drafting courses in college in the late 60's and buying one of each was required for the class. Here is the history and why they are what they are. . The one you are talking about here is an "engineers" scale. The measurements are inches divided in 1/10's. This gives you scales that are evenly divide in 1000 This is because engineers send plans to machinists scale plans and define the measurements in thousands of and inch. The other scale that you have is a "architects" scale. The main graduations on this are feet divided in 1/12. This is because architects design buildings and there plans are measured in feet and inches. This scale give you scales that easily divide in 12. It also looks like the one you have is a metric version for 1/10s. So, 1:24 and 1:12 scale would be found on an architect's scale because they are factors of 12 and 1:20 and 1:25 scale would be found on an engineers scale because they are factors of 1000. The odd fractions that you find on the ends of a architects scale are in feet to the inch. Most architects scales are designed for the main divisions to represent feet but have a small section on each end that are divided to show inches per inch.

  21. Foose `56 Ford Pickup FD100

    Super build in SHINY
  22. Foose `56 Ford Pickup FD100

    I had this one sitting around and decided to throw it together between commissioned projects. First, this is a really great kit! Except for body portions that I prepped, I pretty much just cut parts off sprue, painted them, and put them together. Except for the body not sliding down completely (you can see in some of the pics), everything went together perfectly. Also, Revell really captured the proportions well. The pictures do not do it just justice. As I was building it, I kept finding myself looking back at my work space to take in the cool body lines from different angles. This is build box stock except for the ignition wires. The paint is actually Rustoleum Heirloom White, which appears to be an excellent substitution for Wimbledon White. I have a street rod built using Testor`s Lacquer Wimbledon White which is very, very close in color to this, but slightly darker. The interior is also Rustoleum (Sand). I am not a truck guy, but I could easily see myself building a few more of these.
  23. Today
  24. Autoquiz 427

    I had figured it for some sort of Dodge Dart concoction, but darn if I could nail exactly what it was. I even did a search for Brazilian Dodges, but this one didn't turn up interesting enough. I take it that "B" pillar is more of an add-on as the actual car was a true hardtop. It defeats the purpose of the design, but I guess they had to come up with something just to be "different".
  25. ONCE UPON A TIME..... (game)

    sometimes cheap customers
  26. Revell 2019

    Yes, I have to say that box art is one of their nicer ones in recent memory! It looks as though the tires are the same size on all fours. Knowing how Revell is with their tires, I doubt they'd go through the trouble and they may not have taken note. No biggie............I've got PLENTY 'o tires to pick from if/when the time comes for me to build it.
