    Awesome paint scheme on the blue Freightliner !!!
    Could you please post some more pics?
  2. 1959scudetto added a post in a topic Mixed bag of cabovers   

    Exactly my thoughts - especially the Mack Cruiseliner (even if it might be a 'phantom') and the brown KW - which bumper did you use for this? It almost looks like it could be from a Freightliner Powerliner...
    Keep them coming - your models look great!

    Italeri will reissue this former ESCI kit in 2016 !!!
  4. 1959scudetto added a post in a topic Italeri 2016   

    Gary, if the Miura is the ESCI reissue - which I think that it is - then beware! It is clumsy and toylike, detail is sparse, proportions are wrong. This is why I sold mine many years ago.
    The best Miura on the market is from Hasegawa though it is a late SV version.
  5. 1959scudetto added a post in a topic No more Ferrari car kits...?   

    I'm absolutely with you on that, Bill. Thankfully I have kept 3 original Italeri kits though I would have bought at least 2 more.
    The Esci (Ertl) version is awkward - I built 2 of them in the 80's, replaced the wheels with Italeri spokes and tires and tried to correct its biggest flaws - anyway, hand off of this (until you are a box art collector!).

    Fantastic looking early 70's combination - very well executed - a really nice pair!

    Jim, Italeri has/had several trucks with racing trailer in different liveries - some of them included a metal/plastic model of a racing bike:
    here is Valentino Rossi's 500 cc world championship contender from 2000/2001 (Honda NSR)

    Excellent truck/trailer combo, JT - now we all know why orange has become your trademark... :-)

    Amazing, job, Jürgen! It's hard to tell the model from the real one!
    Fascinating how you replicated all the hydraulics on this workhorse - outstanding!!!
  10. 1959scudetto added a post in a topic KW W-900 {snap}   

    Very good looking KW, Sean apart from the bumper it could be a late 60's/early 70's magazine truck from Owner Operator or the like.
  11. 1959scudetto added a post in a topic Ford GT/110 (X 1) now with pics!!   

    50 years old but much better looking than today's racers....the unfortunate'65 X1 as well as the '66 Sebring winner - how did you make the windshield of this one?
    Great models in any case!!!

  13. 1959scudetto added a post in a topic Belkits Ford Escort Mk1   

    do you know when this will be available ?
    I just read that the Revell 250 SWB will again NOT be re-issued (fortunately I have 3 original Italeri SWB's left)
  14. 1959scudetto added a post in a topic Steel Haul - NEW Tractor unit UPDATE!!!!   

    exactly my words!!! I thought the stell plates were made of thin sheets of rusted steel - but cardboard???
    Awesome weathering on load and trailer !!!
  15. 1959scudetto added a post in a topic What was your first truck model?   

    When I re-started building in 1982, I bought the first truck kit: amt/Matchbox Peterbilt 359 wrecker - I brush-painted it in blue and yellow and still have it today.
