Topics I've Started

Old Build (thought was already here)

22 April 2014 - 06:46 PM

Hey all, I had thought that I had posted pics of this truck, but I can't find it anywhere in my content....so, I'll just have to start from scratch. This was from the contest that some of you have read about that I was doing- "Top the Cop". but unfortunately my program has been put on hiatus due to a change in the logistics of my position for the campuses they have me cover. This was the latest one we ran. Was approx. 2.5 yrs ago, I think. 

The truck is Revell W900. I have filled in the slots in the back for the interior mounts and the side slots for cab mounting. Cut off the blinkers from the headlights and put them on the fenders. And I built a visor for it. The color is an homage to the state I grew up in. (New Mexico) Turquoise base with the yellow and red from the flag colors.

 

Enjoy!!

In A Pickle-Need Input

13 February 2014 - 06:52 PM

Have a dilemma and would like some help or suggestions-please! ^_^  Picked up a Trumpeter Amer LaFrance Eagle Pumper from Hobby Lobby for $7. Yes, you read that correctly, $7. It was marked way down due to a close business relationship I have with the manager. (Plus my daughter works there  :D ) It is missing the photo-etch, some chrome (mainly wheels), and tires. Although, some goober that bought it and then returned it, hence the clearance, swapped in Revell snap tires. There's the skinny, now the dilemma. 

1) I have a ROG Canadian Hauler that has the chrome 10 hole and the painted 2 hole Budds. List a wanted for the 6 required tires and get to building?

 

2)Place the boxes and pump on a different frame/cab for a totally different look?

 

3) Use the boxes only with a section of spare tank I have and make a service truck? 

 

4) Or trade it off to someone that would be interested in tackling such a project?

 

Just curious on what you all might think.

 

Cheers.
