What do you do with a $71.00 chrome plated tanker?

Strip it and use it as a test bed for 'Alclad'....Fingers crossed...

This thing wouldn't fit in anything so I could soak it in simple green! So i pulled out my blue magic polish and had at it!

I started this kit about 4 years ago and shelved it, and I'm glad I did! Now I can put it together and not have to worry about messing up the chrome.

So I borrowed a friends CD...

Alclad CD

And I'm gonna see if it works like it did for for him! I never heard him say "abracadabra..." So I don't think there was any magic involved?


378 Firewall

Well I have a bit of a complaint.
I recently purchased and started building the "New" Italeri 378. And I noticed that they seemed to have molded the firewall incorrect?

The first pic is the model cab.

The opening for the intake on the passenger side...Which I haven't opened up yet seems to be to high up the firewall?

From Tim's site...

And off the web...

I never had the original 379? so I don't know if this is a carry over from it or not...Kinda like the "Drive axle hubs!"
Any way I would love to see one the guys who does those fabulous cabs and stuff offer a "Proper Firewall" for the 378.

It looks like several things things are out of place on it,or am I just being picky?


Italeri 377 question

The engine in the Italeri 377 A/E is a Detroit Series 60 correct?

Just want to make sure...They say it's a 'Cat 500?'

I have just got done checking your web site again to see how the progress was on the "386" fairings.....
And there low and behold...A trailer and...The "Flat Top 378", Plus some new stuff from 'Sourkraut'!

I would love to see more on how you did the fairings for the 386? You always leave me wanting more....
I would love to see a work in progress...here?
The results of and your mastery of styrene sheet never ceases' to amaze me!
When my job situation changes..Ie:more money coming in, I will be getting a bunch these hoods and fairings if the fairings will be for sale.

BTW....The colors of the "378 Flat Top" are gorgeous!

Please Tim consider posting more WIP's here...
