  3. Resin Wishlist

    Since I lean towards heavy construction trucks there was one my bucket list and just recently filled by Jamie R owner of moluminum..the mighty Oshkosh F or P series cab. This cab makes a fantastic plow or mixer ...and is now available..heres it is I was impressed how well the parts fit together, and how smooth it is..usually resin parts have a fine texture..these parts are glass smooth. Now to decide.. Just thought I'd mention it

  7. WIP - Gmc crackerbox mixer

    The new water tank arrived, I didn't waste any time getting it mocked up. Sorry for the messy background, been bashing away on this clutter seems to accumulate like half done builds
  8. WIP - Gmc crackerbox mixer

    I knew you'd appreciate my engine choice !! No problem on the donor engine , I just ordered a California hauler I'll rob it from..that's gonna get a 12v down the road. Thanks ! It's really falling together , now if I can keep the acorns from piling up I agree the wheels fit loose but I usually wrap a thin strip of plastic around them to tighten them up. The heavy duty tires w 6 spokes really appealed to me for this classic truck
  9. Frame looks good from here Kerry !
  10. WIP - Gmc crackerbox mixer

    Thanks everyone I appreciate your comments! Yeah I'm going East Coast style , huge rubber and a square water tank I just ordered from Dave. I wasnt sure whether I wanted the GMC or Dodge, finally settling for the crackerbox. Anyone who's built this cab have any advice or boogie traps I gotta watch for

    Sharp build good color
  12. WIP - Gmc crackerbox mixer

    I ended up using a freight shaker chassis I never was satisfied with, mainly for the simple fact it was already set up for the COE parts. Now I hear ya..no way would that ever be strong enough for a mixer..hes nuts..we'll fix that later ..lol I recently adopted another mixer from said buddy who mastered the 770..so I had one mocked up I borrowed for this. I'll use the new one once everything looks correct .I literally popped the old cab , and 5th wheel plate off and set these parts in their place.. The engine peeking out is getting swapped out for a proper Detroit 8v71 once I locate a donor...( if anyone has one stashed I'm looking) cause its gotta sound like its gonna look ! First order is stretching the frame , and relocating the suspension..I carefully ( read cut off w dremel) removed the angled rear portion of the frame , eye balled the stretch, then added sections of C channel into the kit rails. The extension is a leftover piece of cnc rail I bought from gw trucks..a perfect fit. now to fish plate the entire rail .. Any comments truck chat or feedback highly encouraged Jeff
  13. Well..my buddy sent me a package the other day, and to my surprise a bunch of hungry squirrels jumped out eager for another build..if ya know me I'm easily distracted hence the squirrels. Honestly I've been stashing acorns for a few months waiting for the right time to get cracking on another project while several others wait patiently to be finished... I had placed an order at AITM, and like always the box arrived full of resin goodies ! The real treat was a brand new REX 770 mixer just made available my buddy Chris mastered. The day cab and tires I chose , 6 spoke rims w newer tread pattern. The new Rex 770 .. That box is full of awesome resin parts..and include fenders and hangers appropriate for the rex !
  14. optimus prime truck

    Which version
  15. That color looks great on the suburban!! You mentioned it being a duplicolor paint, was it their perfect match line ?I've always been concerned about how " hot" that paint was and haven't tried it ..yet theres a fantastic selection of colors
