      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    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!

  6. mini trucker added a post in a topic Anything in 1/24th or 1/20 you want in 1/25th scale?   

    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. 
  8. 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.

    Please do not automatically label a comment regarding your behavior as smart assed simply because it did not agree with you, that is rather childish.  I wasn't concerned with my comment sounding friendly, you are correct. I also did not intend for it to sound mean either. I simply wanted to bring attention to the way you come across to some of the members on the board here. Not unlike yourself I was simply calling it as I see it.
    Also, assuming that I would not be interested in your particular subject matter of choice simply because I did not agree with one aspect of your behavior is a little bit much. I am very interested in the Pocher kits and would love to have a go at one someday when my skills are up to the task. Its going to be a long way in the future with how fast I'm building skills now, lol.

    It will be good to have you doing something other than pointing out something negative in every other build or under glass thread. 
  12. mini trucker added a post in a topic Revell vs. Aoshima Datsun 720, any reccomendations?   

    The revell version has factory style wheel flares where the aoshima uses an aftermarket style. The revell has better body proportions in my eyes. They are both 1/24 scale. The KingCab revell  offered in the past as a 4x4 and a 2x4 was 1/25 scale.

    That was a beer so they probably had to rename it. I'm excited for its arrival though, missed it the first time around
     
  14. mini trucker added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    That's awesome! I remember seeing kits like this on the shelves when I was a little kid. Made me want to try my hand at modeling so badly

    Was the mpc 3 wheeler kit a 1/8 as well?
