Antiques are always better in my eyes Sean. The BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH we have today does not even deserve to be called junk. Im not referring to models of course, just everything in general. I happen to think were in a golden age of modeling, even if the participants are not as plentiful. I think the possibilties now are greater than thevye ever been. Anyhow, yes Im a sucker for that original issue artwork. I love collecting the originals.
Thanks Dennis.Yes I did, and its great. Exactly like Jarda said, cutting the hex rod straight can be a hassle. This makes it very easy, although there are advantages and disadvantages to both. Thanks Gator. I dont want to let this one get too far off the back burner. Its getting close, so I just need to keep chugging away at it.
Im trying to push this one along to completion. I jumped a big hurdle tonight and punched out the bolts for the frame. I also put yet another coat of primer on the cab and hood after more sanding. Im still trying to get he bodywork right, and then its right into paint.
I usually just take a little bit off of the hub assembly. This happens a lot more when your mix matching wheels, and axles, and different kits. Some kits just have an axle thats too long. This one us not that bad, but if you want them tucked more, I would trim the hubs.
Nice work Sean.It looks good in primer. Ill admit that this isnt my favorite movie truck, but Ive thought about using the 1/32 Mack and tanker to make a diorama of the Duck hanging off of a scale bridge at the fims end. I dont currently have the room for that kind of layout, but it will happen.
