      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

    Kenworth k100 help
    Hi,
    I've just finished up college and can finally settle back down and get back into building models.  I just got the revell kw k100 with the flat top sleeper and was looking for some help.  We had a family friend who ran one of these on his farm a few years back that had a GIANT 12v71 detroit packed tight underneath it.   I would really like to try and replicate the setup he had. 
    Which comes to the whole "help" part.. 
    How difficult, if at all possible, would it be to put a 12v7 in the revell kit?  I feel pretty confident in making the exhaust and intake work, but am not sure if (or how) the engine wI'll fit in the chassis or how the transmission will be connected.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
     
    Thanks, Ben

    need help on ideas!
    I haven't been able to post for a while because ive been off at college. I stumbled upon this truck at a yard sale and the lady did not find any value in it, so I ended up taking it home for free. from what it looks like, its an old kit, but there is parts missing. it looks like the builder had hacked it all up to make it look like a pulling truck (which I think is a great concept), but they did not seem to care about the truck as they slapped it all together.

    anyways, I would like inputs as to what I should do with the kit. ideas, thoughts, and comments are all welcome as I am totally lost as to where I should go with this build or if it is even salvageable. also, I am not familiar with the whole "plastic fabrication" so I do not know what to do if I decide to get rid of the hood stacks.
    PLEASE HELP with your input!!!!

    Thanks

    grain trailer
    has anyone built a grain trailer to haul with trucks? I want to build one, but would like to see if someone has already done this to get some ideas as to how to approach it.

    I attached a picture of what I am going for.
    thanks

    Its actually a rattle can color by Krylon..I believe its called "Banner Red". Its a very nice color if you are careful not to spray too much.
