She's dirty ol girl

23 July 2014 - 12:57 PM

Here's the finished Diamond Reo, still think I went overboard on the mud, but it looks ok. I started this model about three years ago, that's why theres no air or electrical lines. when I picked it back up in june, the frame of the truck and trailer was already painted with wheels and tires, as well as the trailer and cab. I didn't have the heart to tear it all apart to add the extras. as always all criticism welcomed!


Diamond Reo Logger

So this is a first for me. I've never used weathering powders this extensively, I picked up a rather large amount of AIM weathering powders (don't think they're in business anymore?) from a local hobby shop, and got them for half price to beat all! I just wanted some feedback on the weathering, is it too much, too little? I'm going for the brand new truck who was recently put to work, recently means the early 70's but ya'll get the idea. anyways, all criticism welcome and thanks in advance for the feedback.


Autocar question

17 May 2014 - 12:55 PM

so I bought an autocar hood conversion from AITM (awesome piece by the way) and it was advertised as a 1969 hood conversion. I have found only 1 image on the good ol interweb, but no real info on the model or anything. I would just like to know a model number and maybe years of production. any info would be appreciated, thanks in advance for the help guys!


'59 Ford C-900 3208 swap

So I'm listing this as on the bench because it's 98% done, I still need trailer air lines and an electrical hookup, as well as some other odds and ends. This is my first detailed and weathered model. I've built models before, but nothing other than box stock. Anyways, here it is.


weatherstripping

09 March 2014 - 04:59 AM

I have seen some remarkable work an such small details in some of these trucks, but what is still stumping me is how you guys are doing the weatherstripping around windows. I would love to know the trick to clean weather stripping. I have tried to mask off with tape (worked ok, but still not clean enough, do I need more patience?), I've also tried sharpie which is ok. Does anyone have any suggestion? while I have you truck guys on the line, what is everyone using for air lines and wiring and such, better question, what size wire? I have been using 22 gauge solid wire that is stripped of its insulation, but I've seen battery cable that still has insulation on some models, but the 22 gauge is way too big for that. sorry for the long post, just things that have been bugging me on my ford c-900. hope to post the finished product in a few weeks, thanks guys!!!!!
