  1. Thanks for the replies guys,this is what I came up with the other night,they're from the 2nd Revell 70 chargeemail kit...I may do a bit more work on them but I kind of realised that once I put on the injector lines and build an air filter setup the differences may not be as noticeable but I'm not sure yet I'll have to see how things go
  2. That thing turned out great,are you going to put a great Dane reefer behind it or stick with the lowboy?
  3. Well I found a set of valve covers from the Revell 2 in 1 68 charger kit,installed a gooseneck ball,and put in the lights and grill,there's also a sub woofer and resin amp in the back seat threw a cb in the front seat and had to have the 18 speed shifter,still got a long way to go but I'm making slow progress
  4. Hey all,I'm working on building a 91 ford f350 dually but I'm trying to convert the motor over to a 7.3 liter Navistar indirect injection diesel and I'm wondering if anyone knows if there's any valve covers in a kit similar to the ones on a 7.3 IDI,thanks in advance
  5. Starting to work on the motor and I'm curious if anyone knows of a kit that has valve covers similar to these,I thought about shaping some from a small block 350 but not sure that I can do it without almost starting from scratch
  6. thanks,the trailer is pretty flimsy so I need to either figure out a better Frame or build some bracing but I kind of expected that since it's all scrap sprue
  7. Wow its hard to believe that you started this and built the gold nugget back in 2014 but I'm glad to see this one getting worked on again,it has turned out amazing and I love how you build with what you have just like me but I definitely wouldn't have accomplished as much as you have
  8. Looking great,similar to alot of the welding trucks out here in Colorado
  9. Pretty good start,I was working on doin something similar just a dually and cummins but never got around to finishing it,I'm looking forward to watching this one
  10. Well I finally got some more work done to the ol dually,installed the front axle last night and painted the hood and frame today considering it was a whole 61 degrees today,started working on the trailer for it as well,its not the best by any means but will do the trick
  11. What about the revell bullnose (80-86) f150 in the TRUCKS series?
  12. I used to have a few of them around here but they went on vacation,there's a lot of stuff I need to find and buy,but all in time I suppose,thanks for the tip
  13. Hey guys,not much progress but I went to hobby lobby this afternoon to get a bottle of testors black and to see if I could find some material to put on the subwoofers I'm putting in the rear sice there's no seats back there,I got some material that should work as the carpeting but unfortunately walked out with graphite met. Instead of black....I've learned my lesson,read the label before you buy them...so I painted the lower rocker with the graphite met. And I'll just go back tommorrow or sometime and get black to touch up the top section
  14. Nice work,I love all of the tools for the bed especially the Miller welder
  15. Off to a great start man looking forward to seeing the finished result
  16. So far I've estimated the proper ride height,painted and detailed the interior,put down the main shots of color on the body I just need to do a few touch ups,Installed lockouts in the front rims and "custom made" new tires for it (took Goodyear trackers and the non branded version of the same tires from the snowplow kit and some other kits).I had to cut a section out to make them fit the rims and I've installed some lift blocks in the rear so it has the height for the 4wd front axle...I've been pondering if I should build a gooseneck flatbed trailer for it,I just have to find the right size ball to put in the bed...anyways just thought i'd post pics since its been awhile since I've shown any work on the forum..thanks for looking
  17. Hey guys, I picked up the re-pop of the revell/monogram f350 the other day as a comeback to 1/24 &1/25 while I'm not working on 1/64,and being the OBS ford fanatic that I am I knew I had to have this kit and build it the way I would if I had it parked in the driveway (I have a 92 7.3 f350 in my driveway but it's only srw) so that meant it had to be a 4x4 and diesel...I'm working out the front end parts to make it 4 wheel drive but as far as the engine goes I still have to work on it but I have made a little bit of progress and I'll post the pics in another post,just figured I'd start a thread and show y'all what I've been working on
  18. Thanks man,it had its problems every now and then,but I like the way it turned out,all in all the hardest part was the single axle conversion on the truck
