  1. Looks great! what paint did you use on the wheels?
  2. The frame, interior and sleeper are the same, hoods and grilles are different. The cabs are slightly different, the only difference is where the fenders of the hood flow into the cab sides.
  3. 2004 Pontiac GTO's had the LS1 rated at 350 hp. '05 & '06 GTO's had the LS2 rated at 400 hp.
  4. Was there a factory dually option on the fleetside beds for this generation truck? I did a google search and it appears that they were either home made jobs or aftermarket conversions. If this new ramp truck has the dually wheels like the pic shows it would be a good idea to tool up some dually fenders to use on the previous kits.
  5. If Revell were to tool up a new 1/16 scale kit they should start with a Porsche 911, Fujimi did a 959 in 1/16 but it appears no one ever did a 1/16 scale 911. I find it surprising that such an iconic sports car is missing in that scale so therefore Revell wouldn't have any competition, and if they did it right (high parts count, opening everything) I think it would be a strong seller.
  6. They're from an Italeri Freightliner FLC kit. But Italeri used the basic Freightliner frame in most of their U.S. truck kits.
  7. And in the first pic a Ford pick up in the back ground!
  8. Yes you can build a dm800 mixer with the mixer parts from the paystar kit. I'm in the process of building one myself and so far everything seems to be there. Only thing is you'll have to find the instruction manual from an original dm mixer kit for assembling the frame and rear suspension.
  9. Years ago I had the Canadian version of the groundshaker chevy pickup.
  10. I requested first generation Toyota 4Runner. I don't think a kit was ever made for that truck, or even the corresponding Toyota pickups from that era.
  11. The "Bush Baby" version does have 4x4 parts. I just built the Monroe Handler version a few months ago and I used the 4x4 suspension from the Bush Baby truck to do a stock 4x4 fleetside. I hope the molds for the fleetside bed are still around, I'd like to see this kit get reissued again.
  12. American Graffiti is one of those movies that most people can relate to. The burger joints, the cruising, the stop-light drag racing was all accurately portrayed in that movie. The F&F franchise is so far fetched you can't relate to it but unfortunately you have all these young kids out there trying to emulate the movie and crashing all over the place. And that is why I have such a dislike for those movies.
  13. I'd love to see an eighties caprice done but without readily available police car decals I don't think they would sell well enough.
  14. So what happened to the scania 6x4 italeri announced last year? was it cancelled?
  15. The new site sucks for sure, I miss the old site.
  16. Some good news in regards to the '70 f-100 kits; the molds for the body parts have been polished out so no more grainy sand blasted texture. Thank you Moebius!
  17. That is just absolutely hideous looking.
  18. the modern tool amt '70 camaro z28 has a nicely done 350 in it.
  19. It looks like it was based of the Italeri DAF 2800. http://italeri.com/scheda.asp?idProdotto=2064&idCategoria=7&idSottocategoria=34
  20. and the metalizer can be buffed till you get to a sheen you're happy with
  21. I'd like to see some Jeep pickups too, like the Comanche (sp?) from the early eighties.
  22. I would also add '81-92 Dodge Ram pickups and Ramcharger to that list, that body style has never been done in plastic. I would do 2x4, 4x4, short bed, long bed and maybe even a club cab and dually. I would include lots of accessories for the 4x4 kits too.
