Truck and Trailer question ?

12 April 2014 - 04:07 PM

GREETINGS truck builders,

                                        I just picked up the older REVELL (ITALERI) Ford aero-max 120 big rig, how well does this go together ? any problems with assembly I should know about.

                                        Also have the ITALERI heavy tanker (BP gas) don't know if we would see that six wheel set up here in america, if I wanted to change that one, what suspension could I replace that one with.

                                        Comments and building tips always welcome....  THANKS     John

Hobby Room/Workbench questions

29 March 2014 - 12:50 PM

GREETINGS, fellow builders,


                      As I'am revamping my hobbyroom, I've placed WHITE pegboard on some walls and also on the walls around the workbench to reflect lighting better.

                      LIGHTING; What do you like?, the hum and buzz of CFL bulbs or the LED ones that cost more, what gives more light.

                      WORKBENCH; On the bench top, I placed a sheet of white paper and over layed that with a sheet of plexi-glass. Good choice or bad for the plexi ??. The bench will also have more lighting overhead.

                      PEGBOARD; On walls now, so that I can hang parts, tools, clipboards etc, and I can stop digging through endless boxes of stuff to find what I need.


                      Did I do good ?, what's your take on this, any comments are always welcomed if there's room for more improvment.                                


                                                                                                THANKS!!     John

Monaco/Fury police car question

07 June 2013 - 12:56 PM

GREETINGS builders,

                                  How could I update the dukes dodge monaco into a plymouth fury??, and what kind of wheels and rims need to be used to make this more of a correct police pursuit package. I don't like those chunky tires in the kit.   THANKS...... John
