I'm Ben AKA Chevellekid.....I'm new to this forum but not modeling, been building for most of my life and am always open to new areas of modeling. I'm 14 and am lucky enough to own a 1972 Chevelle Heavy Chevy, needs a full resto but doing all of the work is fun!! Some of you will reconize me from the Scale Auto forum (i see a few names from ther allreday!!), Model Car Cafe, and BnB Auto Builders.

I like to build everyting but mostly Musclecars and Kustoms. But my favorite thing to buld would be these....hehe

Theyre Motorized Drill Trucks built and used by the Volonteer Fire Depts. of New York. It's a competitive sport done weekly at the purpose built tracks at the firehouses themselves. The truck pictured here is the Central Islip Hoboes 1966 Ford F-550, I am despratley looking for one of these to build this truck, I know the guy who was producing them in resin went out of buisness but I'm hoping to find one anyways.

Ben, welcome aboard the fastest growing scale model forum on the planet. (too much?) :lol:
By the way, could I get you to put your last name in the signature box found in the profile section of this forum. This is so we all know who to buy a beer when we meet you at the next show... :roll:

Nice to see you come aboard Ben! We need more young ones to take the place of us "Old" guys in the hobby! :lol:

What a cool looking fire truck! It looks a lot like the ones I used to see as a kid in my neighborhood in that same time period (circa 1966 early '70's).

Might want to make that a Coke,,,,,Ben says he's 14. But in the spirit of forum teamwork, I'll be happy to drink Ben's portion of beer.
