  1. Past hour
  2. Real or photoshop?

    I was pretty sure that it was an illustration because the way it was lite and the reflections.
  3. Wow

    I only Thought my display case was full !

  6. ONCE UPON A TIME..... (game)

    Programmed pizza hut
  7. Pancake mount Cummins

    I built one. Several here helped with pictures and reference. Take a look at the thread here:
  8. Autocar A64B

    Very cool, I never knew that they used Aluminum for the frames. Seems like that would be expensive and lead to problems in salty areas.
  9. Okey Spaulding - Mr. Johan

    I personally talked with him a few weeks ago at the Cincinnati Challenge model contest. He told me he sometimes gets over a hundred emails per day(!) so don't be too disappointed if you don't hear back from him via that method.
  10. James, the Full View window was available on all conventional and LCF cab trucks, even the larger models. The Deluxe cab, which is a separate option, could also be had, but would be rare to find it on a big truck. On the model names, Apache was the model name for 1/2 through 1 ton, regardless of drive configuration. The Viking covered the 1 1/2 ton and 2 ton models, and Spartan was the 2 1/2 ton. Chevrolet used those model names until '62, though they only appeared in advertising for '62. The early name used for the 4x4 models that used the Napco system was the Mountain Goat. That name was mainly used for trucks that were converted by the dealer to 4x4, not the '57-'59 with the factory installed system. Both 4x4 systems are identical, though.
  11. Anyone convert a Revell W900 Aerodyne to a day cab?

    Thanks, that looks good. I want to replicate some trucks used here locally during the fruit harvest season. Mainly I want to replicate the trailer, but it needs to be pulled by some kind of reasonable modern, but not too new day cab. Most are Internationals, but the right trucks are not in kit form and I just can't afford all it would take to do one of the resin cabs out there.
  12. Partial to Monte Carlos too

    - 1983 - White or Blue exterior with blue graphics, two tone white and blue bench seat interior with woodgrain accents. Steel rally wheels with trim rings. - 1984 - White or Blue exterior with blue graphics, solid blue interior, bench or buckets available with woodgrain accents. I seems they went half way with these years to guage interest, since most interior parts were not specific to the SS. - 1985 - White, Silver, Burgandy and Black exteriors, red or burgandy multi toned stripes based on the color, with Burgandy or Gray interiors, black brushed interior accents with red striping, bench, 60/40 or bucket seats. - 1986 - White, Silver, Burgandy and Black exteriors, red or burgandy multi toned stripes based on the color, with Burgandy or Gray interiors, black brushed interior accents with red striping, bench, 60/40 or bucket seats. Aluminum 5 spoke wheels replaced the steels, third brake light was bolted in and and T-tops became available. - 1987 - White, Silver, Burgandy and Black exteriors, red, gray or gold multi toned stripes with purchaser's choice, with Burgandy, Gray or Tan plush interiors, Aerocoupe is added. - 1988 - Same as 1987, however, the brochure listed Gold as an additional color, but was never produced. My previous Montes: '71, '72, '74, '80, '85 SS, Silver with Gray (my first new car), 2002 SS, Silver with Black. I guess I've had a Monte sickness.
  13. 1966 AMC Ambassador

    Beautiful. Great color.
  14. 1977 1978 1979 Thunderbird progress

    wow, that's awesome !!!
  15. Today
  16. Porsche 935, Matchbox, 1/32

    Decals from Patto's Place going on. Excellent printing and thin carrier film, and very easy to use. The only issue is that they are deigned against a 3D model of the real thing, not a specific kit. In this case, the gotcha turned out to be that Matchbox put the NACA ducts on the rear wings/fenders too far forward... That's the majority of the decals on. Still a few small ones to track down, and once they are all set thoroughly I can see that some work needs doing to bed the stripes in around the compound curves. Final clean up and detail painting to do, and she'll be ready for beauty shots... but not for a few days because we're off to Paris for the weekend... best, M.
  17. 1967 Plymouth GTX

    Thank you Larry.
  18. What did you see on the road today?

    Not quite on the road but close. A 3/4 ton 53 International with "borrowed" trim and a plywood tailgate. Anyone recognize the crest?
  19. Both are very good looking, the weathering is looking very convincing on the 70, looks like an old work horse. Cant wait to get started on my 66. I need to get one of those 4X4 versions.
  20. The Revell '64 Impala is like that also IIRC.
  21. 1966 AMC Ambassador

    She's a beauty. My uncle had one almost identical. Our bishop had a black one with red interior.
  22. Dencon - several months before I finally got a refund.
  23. ONCE UPON A TIME..... (game)

    he passed out
  24. Photo reduction

    That might be the easiest way for you. Pay a millennial to do it for you. I shot a photo of my neighbor's rear plate straight on. I made a copy, and used Paint to fill in the registration stickers on the copy. I then used Snipping tool in Windoze to cut the plate images from the larger photo and pasted them into Word. As Kurt said, US, Canadian, and Mexican plates should be right about 1/2 inch wide, and Word has a built-in ruler. I then printed them on photo paper. I have a pretty nice Canon printer / scanner at work. Better than the HP I have at home.
