  1. Has anyone done a good copy of Cooter Davenport's wrecker? There were several versions aired during the Dukes of Hazzard's run. Actually, I would like to see any kind of twin boom Holmes setup for a one-ton truck.
  2. As I was reading down the discussions about decaling, you mentioned trying to find gold leaf old-style lettering. It occurred to me that there are letters and numbers in gold on the decal sheet in the Trumpeter ALF Eagle Pumper Fire truck. But then I scrolled down further, and saw the decals you used... It works for me. And I think it looks better than the gold would have looked!
  3. Storage space can be a real problem, both for new, unbuilt stuff and actually finished models. It would be wonderful if I had enough wall space to display 1/18 scale diecasts. The quality and detail is so much higher the bigger you go, but they do take up a lot more space. Therefore, I choose to display 1/64 diecasts, giving up detail for diversity. Same goes for model trucks. While I do like variety, I just don't have the room. I display most of my trucks without trailers, because the trailers, especially the long ones, just eat up too much shelf space.
