Thanks for the tip on photoBucket!!! I don'y knmow why I didn't think of that way earlier.
Here's a couple of early models I did from the released Mack truck. I call my blue trucks the Sagebrush Oil Well Drilling Co.
The Waukesha engine is totally scratch built but the models themselves are pretty much out of the box. I did open up the hoods and detailed the engines on all of them.
I just love old trucks and unusual trucks. I remember seeing some of Mark Savage's rigs a long time ago and that got me hooked, I went away from tanks and airplanes.
That drill rig in the earlier pic took 2d place at the IPMS show in Murfreesboro TN last Saturday. I got beat out by a NASCAR model which had a lot of aftermarket items on it. the club who sponsored the show for 4 years now has not opened a Heavy Commercial category to my dismay.
A good modeling buddy of mine John Mahaffey out of Memphis TN builds pretty unique old stuff too. Anyone know John?http://i5.photobucke...ldRigs003-1.jpghttp://i5.photobucke...ieldRigs006.jpghttp://i5.photobucke...05_edited-1.jpg
