That is a nice looking cab. You should not have too much trouble mounting it.


I have several Aero cabs that I plan on using the 123 chassis for. Seems to me there was no real differences in the frame except the length . But it has been several months since I looked at them . (pre move packing)

Other then improving the tilt hinge and relocating the rear cab mount. 

I plan on using a piece of aluminum or brass tubing between the frame rails with pins for the tilt.  Not prototypical but functional.

Those are really cool. I never realized so many cars were featured on matchbooks.  Bonus points for the Hobby Shop one !


Several years ago I was in a shop that was cutting a quarter panel off a Ford (cant remember the model) but the guy pulled out a handful of Ford 20th anniversary matchbooks and a coffee cup saying the same. Kind of neat someone left those treasures for the future.


Edited as I had the year wrong :(

Wow Terry, the cab looks fantastic ! Real smooth finish - a ton of OCD sanding huh :lol:  It paid off.

That sleeper looks great !  Looks like a lot of careful work was needed to cut the doors out. Did you use a jewelers saw ?

Stunning work on the combo, boy do they really stand out ! B)

You need a pair of those gloves coin collectors wear to handle them.
