Military truck axles in resin?

11 November 2010 - 02:38 PM

I wasn't sure which trucks section to post this under, but this seemed as good a place as any. Anyways, does anyone know if there's anybody who makes resin Rockwell 2 1/2-ton or 5-ton military truck axles in 1/24 or 1/25 scale?

East Coast vs. West Coast rigs

30 July 2010 - 07:09 PM

Ever since I've gotten into model truck building, I've seen the terms "East Coast" & "West Coast" in reference to the style of a truck and I've been wondering what the difference between "East Coast" & "West Coast" rigs is? I've done a little research myself & it appears to me that "West Coast" rigs generally have longer chassis & use more lightweight components such as aluminum.

Anyone else have any info?

'73-87 GM pickup long bed?

10 May 2010 - 11:25 AM

Hi, i was wondering if anyone makes a long bed in resin for 1973-87 Chevy/GMC pickup kits? I've seen some model kits of Fleetside pickups, but they're all shortbeds, so I was wondering if I would have to cut up 2 short beds to make a long bed for one of these trucks.
