    Would love to have one in my collection,  but way out of my price range!!

    Terry, looking good,  . hope you stay with this model and  finish it, Are you going to dullcoat the tires? look to shiny to me .Will be looking forward to pictures of  finished model.

    Agree about the tailgate being to heavy duty, otherwise looking good!!.  Waterburybob

    Terry, thanks for the info I just ordered some , can't wait to use it on my next build. I am sure others that are following your build here will find this info useful also. Regards, Waterburybob

    Terry, I see you have moved the tanks back, looks much better!! I agree duel rams are not easy to scratch build , It would be great to know the product  #  on the plastruct you used I think it really came out nice on those fenders. Keep up the good work on this monster. Waterburybob

    Terry , I also like what you are doing here this is a very interesting project !! Just two things I would change, First I think the fuel tanks are too close to the front wheels, on a 1 to 1 scale truck  I don't think there is enough clearance for those large  wheels to turn left or right . I would move tanks back  1/4 inch or more and second, I would flat clear coat the tires ,to much sheen for me. I like painting my tires with FLOQUIL" Grimy Black" a flat  gray black color . This is just my thoughts on your fine model , Now a few questions, how do you plan to raise the dump box? single or double hoist, also what do you use and how do you wrap the edges on the fenders with deck plating. Regards, Waterburybob

    I have been following this topic for a while now and am now adding my two cents worth. I have been both a buyer and a seller on E-bay , I mainly sell now because at my age I know I will never build all the truck models I have and E-bay is a good way for me to reduce the stash . I agree that some items I see listed are high but no one forces anybody to buy, I have had some items sell quickly and others not at all . Let me tell you what  goes into selling an item(FOR ME) , first you have to decide what to sell , then I check on E-bay to  see if there is one selling, and for what price , Next you have to find a box , next you take pictures of item, then you weigh item and box, write a detailed description, load pictures into computer, find your category, type your info and any other info to help the buyer get the most complete info he can before he decides to bid, Now if you are lucky enough to sell your item  you pack it best you can (without adding to much weight) By now I have spent about an hour , then I  wait to get paid and then drive to the post office (15 minute ride) hand it to the clerk and hope it gets to where its going in a reasonable amount of time. I do all this for an average of $50 to $60 ) then E-bay takes its percentage and their charge for listing the item!!! . Am  I making a great deal of money ? I think not , but I am glad that someone else may build a model that I know I will never get to and I get some satisfaction in that. So when some of you guys think a price on an item is to high think again of what goes into selling an  item you see on E-bay. Waterburybob

    After the bad experience I had with the guy that was suppose to be selling the 1/25 scale Talbert Trailers (lost my $90.00 deposit) and got several nasty e-mails ,when I tried to get my money back I decided to try GW Wallace , found him to be very slow in filling my order . Don't know what luck other people have had with him but I won't do business with him again!! only AITM has ever given me excellent service and I will use no one else.

    The stacks make the truck look more like a toy , my opinion put more realistic looking stacks on and it would look much better.

    Very nice work , did you make the decals?
  11. waterburybob added a post in a topic Talbert Detachable Lowboy trailer Kit   

    When I first saw pictures of this trailer I thought it would be made in piece's like a kit , never thought cast in sections.Trailer's like this are not that difficult to scratch build if you have atleast two views and dimensions. Most contractors in the construction  business have a variety of  trailer's to move their equip. from job to job. Bob

    Yes , this guy is a real piece of work!! I wish I had never ordered  trailers (2) been nothing but trouble . Bob

    Glad  for you,Did you also get a reply from him along with the refund? I last inquired about a refund Monday (OCT.5) and got a very, very nasty reply.To clean up what he said( so I can print it here) he feels  what we are posting here is propaganda and we are all out to get him,Fact is I just want my money back. and put this whole miserable experience to rest.Bob

     Well said, I couldn't agree more!! Bob

    I would not hold my breath on that refund!! . I have heard that tune by him before, It  seems he has a lot of excuses , it's either this or that , Just send the freakin refunds to ALL the people you owe money to (including me) and stop with blaming everybody else, it gets really old!! Bob
