    why dont you get some plastruct (evergreen possibly too) white coated small diam round with a wire running inside it and make it the diameter you want. Then create your center?

    Very nice all around-car and diorama. Tell me where did you get Pennsy plate or did you color that?

    From one former farm kid to another, nice job on the 4430-although you do need the screens in front of engine for air cleaner. How about a chisel plow, disc or even planter next?

    Thanks to all for your input. I do now remember the monte carlo, as for Revell #6025, is $40 or higher on ebay so I may not go that route even though would prefer it.

    1/25 scale Air cooled engine ideas
    I am building a salt spreader to go in the back of a dump truck, which would run on an air cooled engine. Have considered motorcycle models but have not seen and 1/25 scales. Anyone with any ideas?

    I see there are two batteries under the hood. Now maybe this was an option with some camper edition or something, I just know that I had this cab style in 87 and it had the 6.9 Liter diesel and the two batteries, so this would be a good cab to use as a start for a model with a diesel engine in it. I think it is time someone comes up with one

    I see that the Ford Van from the 70's (the Vantim) is back out. This had a 351. You could add a little length between the bottom of the block and oil pan,as truck engines held a lot more motor oil (9 qts), that could sit there a little while and cool before going back thru engine. You could also add just a little between top of engine block and heads, as the pistons in a truck may have had a little more stroke (I use plastruct stripes, and like how fast they glue/stick). Finally, while I also am building from memory, I get the pix I need off of google under images, for how things will fit together.

    No, you got it. I meant the bed finish. I also like the covering on the seat.
