    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 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. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

    Thanks Clayton, should be a fun build.
    Thanks Rob, well I just got done rebuilding my house after a fire we had last year and I have a nice big room waiting for me to finish it and it will be my model room but that is a winter project. 
    Thanks for following the build guys.
     
    Needed some bigger fuel tanks, so I had some 1 1/4 pvc so cut a few 6" pieces and added some styrene to the ends.  Will work on some straps tomorrow.

    Ok frame all together and primed now working on some assembly.
     
    Frame with wheels to see how the frame looks with tires.

    Added some aluminum to help strengthen the frame, the frame is 33" end to end.
     
    Frame all clamped up after using some Devcon expoxy.

    1/16 Kenworth custom
    First I want to thank Kenny B and his 1/16 Scale Peterbilt 359 build for giving me the inspiration for my build.  This is my first build in a year and a half and the first semi build ever, this one will take me some time.
    First thing was to slice and dice the frame.  I was lucky that a friend had bought the same model just for the body so I was able to get the additional frame and wheels.

    Sorry about that I was replying from my phone, no I am a big fan of H of K paints and another color that is great is the urethane cobalt blue outstanding color.

    Thanks Kenny, I will have to custom make the cross members to fit, the kit is the Kenworth W-900 Aerodyne Conventional.  The plan for the build is of course stretched with a huge sleeper, with some custom body work.  Custom built tanks and pipes.  Color I picked is House of color Brandywine kandy with copper accents (rims, tanks, pipes ect..).

  24. Tony G added a post in a topic What Pleased You Today!   

    Well after a long year of rebuilding my house after a fire and dealing with the insurance company, myself and my wife spent the first night in our rebuilt house.  I may have lost everything in the fire, but it was so great to be back home.  Starting over is hard, but I am very thankful that my wife of 31 years was by my side.  Now to get myself a building area set up and get back to it!
     
    It was a Great day!!!
