  1. Moebius Big Rig Super Singles

    Are the steer tires in the new set standard ones or hi-floats? They almost look to me like they could be floats...
  2. I've already picked up a few of the yellow Z51 Vettes. I noticed the price ticked up a buck this year to $14.98 but still an incredible bargain. Finally seeing the Maisto displays there is like Christmas in July! The only drawback is they put the displays 2 or sometimes 3 deep so the back ones aren't always accessible. I'm hoping Maisto does one in the new Sebring Orange but it's doubtful.
  3. Let's see your Big Rig Wreckers!

    I stretched out a Can-Do...
  4. Well that stinks, he had great parts!!
  5. Ryan Mlynek is the best, his seller ID is rhino9905. He doesn't have anything listed right now but I'm sure you can contact him.
  6. Fuel tank measurement needed

    Perfect, thanks Brian! Guess I'll have to relieve Hobby Lobby of one of their Freightliner kits this weekend.
  7. Can someone please tell me how long the fuel tanks are on the AMT White Freightliner COE? I'm assuming the DD and SD use the same tanks. Thanks!
  8. Polished aluminum drop visors and Texas bumpers are usually available from a couple different Ebay sellers. Not so much on the drop axles there, you'd probably have scratch build those. I did see drop axles for the Italeri Pete 378 on a truck model parts site last year but I never saw them again. I wish I'd grabbed those when I saw them.
  9. Would be nice if Hobby Lobby carried them.
  10. For the minimal cost it's definitely worth giving it a go. Work is nutso-crazy right now so my building time is limited but I'll be hitting Hobby Lobby sometime in the next couple of weeks to grab some. I'm also hoping they've gotten rid of their seemingly endless supply of the Freightliner DD reissues from years ago and made room for some of the new reissues coming out.
  11. Great build and interesting subject matter! You've gotten me curious about the Molotow pen, I might have to give it a try. Short of sending parts off to Chrome Tech I've never found anything that even comes close to chrome. Alclad, Spaz Stix, chrome paints, etc. just end up being "shiny silver" which is fine for an aluminum look, but the real chrome look seems to only be achievable with kit chrome parts or using a chroming service, with BMF being a cheaper alternative on certain parts.
  12. Finally finished Pete Tridem Heavy hauler

    Great work, looks like it's done some back-country haulin'!
  13. Mack R685ST cement mixer

    That's a great idea!
  14. It's probably wishful thinking that these would show up at Hobby Lobby. All my HLs seem to be Freightliner dealerships...they still carry the reissued FL COEs from several years ago and now they have the latest SD/DD kits too!
