    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    Thanks guys! I'm trying to decide what direction I want to go with this truck. Given my penchant for bling I'm leaning toward something "modern-retro" if that makes any sense.

    I have the cab painted and striped, now it's time to gradually get working on the engine & chassis. I'm sure I'll have to stretch the frame a bit to accommodate the longer cab.

    I wasn't actually referring to just the "News & Reviews" section, but all the truck sections. And it's not that I have trouble finding the big rig stuff, I just find it time-consuming and, to be honest, unnecessary when the big rig topics and pickup/SUV/van topics could be separated. No one is bashing either category, and there's no need to. This isn't "big rig builders against pickup builders", or vice-versa. It's about what makes it easiest for both to enjoy and share their hobby with others who have the same interests. I can only speak for myself and all I'm saying is that I'm more likely to spend time here if I can easily access the content that interests me. If this forum were made more user-friendly for truck people, whether the trucks have 18 wheels or 4, that would attract more visitors and possibly more builders into the hobby for both categories. In a hobby where most of our subject matter is from 40 years ago (big rigs) I think everything feasible should be done to encourage visibility.

    Honestly I don't spend as much time here lately because I get tired of wading through the pickup truck posts to find the big rig threads and posts that interest me. I'm sure some pickup guys feel the same way toward the big rig stuff. The bottom line is the moderators should do what's in the best interest of the members AND what keeps members actively participating in the forums. Just my .02

    Thanks guys, especially Rick who gave me some photographic inspiration. I've got color on the cab, I just have to finish some stripe work and I'll post cab pics soon. I'm working 6 days a week right now so I'll have to take baby steps with this one.

    Just a follow-up...my Auto Art Mad Max Interceptor arrived the other day and it's worth every penny I paid for it and then some. I picked up some MFP fender and license plate stickers on Ebay just to complete the car and it's spot-on!

    I believe the Peterbilt 352 will have Coca-Cola livery...I saw it somewhere online. The box art is similar to the Coke Ford Short Hauler.

    That's a beauty, love the detail!

    That's awesome, as is the Aerodyne!  Coincidentally those are the fenders I was thinking about using as well. Your model gives me even more motivation on this build, thanks!

    If you have any pics of the one you built can you please post them?

    Cruiseliner double bunk
    To my knowledge Mack never made a double-bunk Cruiseliner so I thought it would be fun to make a "what if" model of one. I have more work to do on it with sanding and primer, but you get the idea...

    I really think the wagon is pulling him !!!
  14. Mike77 added a post in a topic Scratch bash KW aerodyne wrecker   

    I've seen that one many times on the interweb and I always thought it was pretty cool. Looking forward to seeing your project!

    Great work! That's probably the only way we'll ever see any modern rigs in scale so we might as well embrace what we can in non-kit form. With Christmas two months away I'm sure a lot of those will be showing up in stores. I might have to grab a few. Like you said, you can't beat that price!
