    Craft paint or tole paint is a great cheap alternative on plastic. I use it all the time but I find that if I mix 20% acrylic clear varnish (found in the funiture finishing department of your local hardware store) and 10% Tamiya thinner I get better results and the paint in a bit harder for wet sanding. The great thing about that paint is that it dries in a hurry! Now I wish I could use the Pearl they have in my airbrush but it clog it up pretty good even with a #3 tip.

    Tmc Mack Truck Build Off
    All the details of the "TMC Mack Truck Build Off " are almost finalized and all we need now are participants. The prize pool is HUGE with over $700.00 in prizes and I've been getting e-mails from a few participants and competition will be fierce and we should see some very nice builds. This Competition will go on for over 1 year and the Winner will be announced Jan 2009. I'm also negotiating with a big sponsor that want's to remain a surprise until further in the build off (It's a Major Trucking Company here in Ontario") And That BIG Special Prize will be awarded At the 2009 Fergus Truck Show. More details on this later during the build but if I get good response from Truck Modelers, I will also organised a mini Truck Model show at the Fergus event.

    Good Luck to all the participants, This is a worldwide competion and we should see all kinds of different variation of Mack Trucks.
    For details go to www.truckmodeler. com

    Thanks to all the Sponsors, they help keep our hobby alive!!

    Alive but I don't know about well...in Canada anyway. They might be doing well in the US but here in Canada, I think they are strugling. Most AutoCar garbage trucks we see here don't have any badging on them, the only way you know it's an AutoCar is a small 2" sticker on the dump body. And one of the drivers said the dealerships are having a hard time getting parts to keep them running.
