  1. I’m not sure why my post warranted such a response. If you believe this isn’t possible, consider the skill and talent of our current truck aftermarket producers and the interest of our truck builders. However, considering the material we’d need for the covering, resin might not be the best answer anyway, except for the framework, front cap, etc. I’m also aware that a functioning curtain isn’t possible either, and Italeri makes a European curtain side too, but it’s not much help to the North American builders. Auslowe has made curtainside trailers, so there is already an aftermarket presence, though an Australian design. Regardless, a few guys have scratchbuilt a curtainside. The upcoming Moebius kit is a great starting point for such a project, making a bunch of the work easier. I’m willing to scratchbuild, but I always have faith in the aftermarket.
  2. With the 48’ spread axle flat - so many interesting load possibilities. Many variations could be made by the builder without too much work. Wonder if someone in the aftermarket would make a curtainside add-on kit?
  3. I’m very pleased about the flatbed. I hoped that they’d go this direction with the next trailer kit.
  4. Excellent. Weathering and details so good you can almost smell it.

    I think you’re correct. I’ve also heard that the Revell headlights have the opposite problem and are too big. In either case, CTM makes a couple replacement options that are more realistic.

    It’s really neat to see your evolution in weathering in one single build. It’s getting better and better. My favorite detail so far is the cup marks and coffee stains on the dash. Extreamly subtle yet so very realistic.
  8. Thanks for the sneak peek. Looks nice, I’ll have to add it to my list of kits to buy.
  9. Different styles of "Budd" disc wheels

    Did Ford use a similiar wheel on their 70’s/80’s one tons?
  10. Nice work on the trailer.
  11. I agree. I wonder if he ever considered painting it all to match? Still, an odd contraption. But, if it makes him happy, it works for him I guess.

    Good work so far, I like the green leaker and the interior. I’d probably go black on the frame, but try red first. Might tie in well with the interior. See how it looks and you can always throw black over it.

    No problem at all, of course. Inspiration is the best part of the forum! Thanks!
