I think that must have been from Jamie directly. He sometimes puts a few things on Ebay to see how well they'll do. His Ebay Id is Mack3241.

added headlights and did some fine tuning. now just waiting on minipl8's decals and modeltrucking decals and then on to the weathering, my favorite part of model building.

I know the breather on the right side is the vertical one but will put a horizontal one on my next 281. I built the horizontal one last night.

I got my decals the other day. Josh Muma of www.BedlamCreations.com did the setup so now if anyone wishes to do the DUEL rig those decals are saved in his files. They look great too. Now I can finish this truck and trailer and relax again. :)

 

By the way I do NOT get any kick backs from his site or Josh. But I did ask him if it was okay to let my modeling friends know of his site and that he had DUEL decals now. If anyone is interested in them he did say mention my name. You may get a discount or not. I don't know but Josh is a pretty good guy. He asked me when was the latest I needed them and I said Feb 11 and they got here Feb 9 so he is good at getting his products out quickly.

I do however, give kickbacks to Jim. Everytime he mentions my name I give him a cookie. As per our agreement! :P

well Duel didn't win anything but my well drilling rig won 1st place in  heavy commercial. I would have taken pics but someone put a big rig w/trailer in front of the Duel rig. I'll take some later to post.
