Even though most on this thread would think that the construction/heavy equipment/heavy truck niche of the modelling industry/hobby is small, there are a large number of us, and just because a ton of car modelers or military modelers say something wouldnt sell, or that theres no need for it, doesnt mean that there are people, like myself, that long for some equipment kits! there are so many things and reasons to want them like loads, loading, dioramas, and photos for trucks. just because you or a few arent interested in dump trucks because theyre "boring" doesnt mean that we dont need more dumptrucks! gonna go ahead and agree with Ben here on this one!! why must there be an arguement over what will sell and wont sell anyway when its not even produced? im sure the model manufacturers would cross that bridge when they got to it, if they did. but dont worry about it! i personally would love the equipment and such, ive seen enough 32 fords and mustangs already!
ok, so i added my custom/homemade styrene stacks wrapped in chrome duct tape i got from automotive section st the hardware store. also was playing aroun d with some light ideas, but am going to put on amber colored lights instead of red.
AMT 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle. paint is a custom mixed metallic blue by me. airbrushed on. wet sanded the paint then cleared it. pictures are after wet sanding, only a couple flaws but it will be fixed soon.
working on this truck for a comission build and have to make some straight pipes for it. these are some pictures of what ive done to it. color is amazon green metallic duplicolor main with black fenders and roof. has wires for trailer, but isnt getting a trailer.
great ideas for trailers, cool to see so many people with all different ideas, then some the same with so many different outcomes!
will be real cool to see the sliding suspension!
i did some dry fitting on my walls and roof, everything lines up perfectly, maybe you did something wrong? maybe theres something wrong with you kit?. i did notice though, that the front panel is a bugger and super tight to go in, i did it third so then i had a wall left and works easy that way just a little tight, roof i will try soon, then i have to finish painting everything.
