Any Future Truck Projects or Goals ?

22 October 2014 - 06:24 AM

Bench time seems to be more frequent with the shorter days and cooler weather.

What do you have in mind of building ?

Me - I have several Big Rig projects to finish up. 

(1)  BJ McKay KW - Finially obtained decals for it.

(2) IH 4200 Shorty

One thing I want to do though is build a Cummins "assembly line" and build up 6-10 AMT Cummins engines to where all I have to do is drop them in the frame of the next project.

Got this box of parts from an aircraft builder.

Giving it a second chance.  Rebuilt the frame after seeing another 4200 single here on the forum.

Most needed  - Radiator , Engine crossmember. 

 

If you can spare them - Battery box , Headlights , Door latches

 

Let me know your terms if you have extra parts.

Thanks for looking  :)

After a void from the bench which consisted of a move this Summer, I needed something I could work on with the resources I have on hand.

This looked like a easy simple project...  I have never been one to just build out of the box. Here is my progress so far.

Shortened the frame down for a single drive

Cut the sleeper and used the back half of another sleeper to make the cab back.

Removed one exhaust mount and the sleeper mounts.

Backdated the headlights from rectangle to concave

Also little stuff that will never be seen like styrene sheet on the engine hollow areas..

Pretty simple so far :D  I need more of these kits..

 

Thanks for looking in :)

Big Rig Hood & Fender ?

08 September 2014 - 06:27 AM

I have noticed a lot of modelers paint the hood and fenders seperate. My question is how do you glue the two together after painting without disolving the paint ? I use liquid cement and it is not friendly when it comes in contact with a painted surface.  Do you use a CA type cement ?
