    Way back when All American Models offered a resin blazer kit. They still turn up on ebay once in a while and typically sell for pretty good coin when they do.

    You could drop the Revel cab onto the AMT chassis and be a good ways there. You could use the interior or the AMT fleetside bed as well but you would have to scratch build the exterior. Luckily none of it is particularly complicated in shape so it would be doable if you have some scratch building skills.

    I would also like to see this kit get reissued with the fleetside bed sometime soon. It was one f my personal "Holy Grail" kits for many years

    I'd like to see this kit get a reissue soon. Nice work on your build.

    RIP Blair
    Just saw on Instagram that board member Blair Pletcher has passed away. I didn't know him but was an admirer of his beautiful weathering jobs. May he rest is piece.

    I'm good for a case of these
  7. mini trucker added a post in a topic Anybody Know What Happen to James Evens?   

    I don't know why he disappeared off of here but he runs The Lowrider Page on Instagram  so he's still alive anyways.

    Your local online classifieds can sometimes yield model kits and parts lots too.

    If you PM me your address I will send you out a set of the wheelz you need.

    Thanks for the help gentleman. I hadn't test fit the sidewalls when I asked, just assumed they would be loose fitting. Good to know otherwise

    Two piece tire glue
    Can anyone suggest a good glue to glue the sidewall insert in with on a set of old AMT drag slicks? I don't have any spares of this tire to experiment with so I'm hoping to get it right the first time. Thanks!

    I'd take the MPC  AMX in 1/25th scale as well as the Lindberg mini pickup offerings from the early 90's

    I remember a time when that RoboCop Taurus was everywhere at rock bottom prices and still didn't sell. I cannot vouch for kit quality but the subject matter seemed to be universally unappealing. 
  14. mini trucker added a post in a topic Has anyone Lowered the Aoshima Toyota Hilux 4WD Doublecab?   

    There is a lowrider version of that kit available if you want to save a bit of time.

    Aquariums make good displays cases for the large scale stuff. New ones aren't too expensive to purchase and you can cut a piece of plexiglass for a top to keep the dust out. Colored aquarium gravel can make a neat base to set your completed model on in your aquarium display case.
