1974 Road Runner decal sheet - Need info on placement

16 May 2015 - 12:59 PM

Road%20Runner%2006_zpsewf1hvan.jpg

 

This is the decal sheet that comes with the RR tin from MPC/AMT/R2. As par for the course with R2, nearly all of the decals have no innumeration on them to say where exactly they need to go. I know 2 of the bird logos go on the interior door up near the dashboard, and one of the RR letterings goes on the woodgrain insert on the passenger side dash itself. The striping is easy as are the engine "designators", and one of the round logos goes on the top og the nose. The half moon air cleaner decals are obvious, so what about the red ring and other stuff?

 

NOTE: I am doing mine in black with red stripes.

Tractor Trailer from "Maximum Overdrive" - Help?

26 April 2015 - 08:33 AM

I have seen someone on FB doing wonders with building a truck to match the "Happy Toyz" gremlin semi truck and want to build one myself.

 

1: What truck IS this? (I'm thinking Kenworth)

2: What is the closest model truck in 1:24 or 1:25 scale that is out there that comes close to it?

3: Is he sourcing the decals out on the web for the trailer and then printing them off?

4: It looks like I can use a "head" from a 12" Green Goblin toy from the "Spiderman" movie line as the gremlin face. Think it's possible?

 

I don't know if he's on here but I want to make up that truck as best I can.
