  1. Huge kudos to LL3 Model Worx, he sent me a can of discontinued Model Master paint that I wasn't able to locate anywhere else. Great guy to deal with!!!
  2. Thanks guys! In nearly 50 years of building this was the first mixer I ever built. The day cab is actually pretty easy to do.
  3. I finished this mash-up between a Transtar 4070A and a Challenge mixer last month...
  4. One of the most pleasant kits I've built in ages. Since it is new tooling there's very little flash on the sprues. I just finished this one, modified of course.
  5. I can vouch for the Model Truckin' BJ decals as well. Very will made and easy to work with.
  6. I just finished this one. I didn't want a standard day cab or a regular cab and I found pics on the web of a couple of 74"-cab Transtars that I thought were cool. I shortened the cab, which was a little more involved than a typical job since on the full cab the window opening and tool box door are offset. I opened up the side and rear windows, and the chassis is also shortened. I highly-recommend this kit if you have "builder's block" as it's really nice to build.
  7. I'm looking for Peterbilt 359 grille, specifically the open grille from the Can-Do/Will-Do wrecker or the Bill Signs kit. Thank you.
  8. I'm looking for a chrome gas filler cap from a Revell/Monogram '67 Corvette kit. Please send me a PM if you have one available. Thanks! Mike
  9. It wasn't issued like this from FM, I modified a stock '67 Vette into a Ko-Motion.
  10. Not to drag this thread out too long, but what about the wheels from the Moebius Dyno Don Comet Cyclone? In looking at the box art it looks like the offsets are different but when I look at videos it's really hard to tell. I can replace the pie crust slicks with regular ones so it all depend on the wheels. If anyone has info and/or pics I'd appreciate it!
  11. Thanks all! The Camaro ones look a little more like Rockets than Cragars but since "beggars can't be choosers" they'll have to do.
  12. Thanks guys! It looks like the Camaro ones will work.👍
  13. Is there a readily-available kit that has chrome Cragar S/S wheels in 60's drag style? I'm looking for slicks(preferably not pie crusts) & skinnies with the rear Cragars having a deeper offset than the fronts. I know this sounds picky, but it's for a particular project. I know there are a lot of kits that have same-offset rims, or pie crust slicks rather than smoother Racemasters, etc., so this may be a challenge. I'm trying to avoid piecing everything from different kits. Any help is greatly appreciated!
  14. Great work! The 1/16's have a lot of mod potential, I've done a ton of them over the years.
  15. He exists, he just doesn't have anything listed right now. Check out the completed listings. bergers10
  16. Contact seller bergers10 on Ebay. He doesn't have any listed right now but I've bought 1/16 rubber tires from him in the past with various tread patterns.
  17. My wife and I returned yesterday from a quick road trip out to the Granite Mountain Hotshots Memorial in Arizona. We stopped at the Cadillac Ranch on the way and I snapped a few pics. It's neat for what it is but the Caddys are so caked with spray paint that they're almost unrecognizable...
  18. It probably turns a corner better than this one 😄...
  19. I don't know if I ever posted this one here, I did it about 3 years ago...
