    The water well in his town dried up and they were having to truck in water. They had to relocate, after they had just moved there. Im sure he will be back once he gets set up again.

    Cool deal. Thanks for the info Ed. This is why I love modeling. There is just so much to get into.

    It would work, it just wouldnt be anything like the frame in the tractor kit. Ive built a tractor using the shorthauler kit. I just made it a single axle,shortened it, and added a 5th wheel.I should have angled the rails at the tail, but I may eventually. This is an old build.

    I was looking at those as well. The MK8 only had a few mins left when I spotted it, and it was cheap so I threw a bid and got lucky.Ill be  grabbing a M8B as well.

    Thanks Bill and JC, that really helps me understand the diff versions. I know this isnt a GT 40, but while hunting one I scored this kit for a great deal.

    Im really getting into these type of cars and At the prices I normally spend on truck models, I can get way more cars!

    That looks like a great kit, thanks for the info. What MK would this represent? MK II, MK IV?

    Wow! What an amazing build. Ive been a machinist for 15 years, and this blows me away. You are a true craftsman. Excellent work.

    Youve outdone yourself on this one Dan. This is a top notch build for sure. I cant say enough good things about it. 
  15. Superpeterbilt added a post in a topic What kind of builder are you?   

    This hits it on the head for me. I consider myself a collector in the sense that I have a ton of kits, but they will all be built. I approach a build as if Im building the real thing. I love doing research on a truck and planning out a build. I love challenging myself to get better, only because I enjoy that. Some trucks I build with the hood glued shut, but theres still a motor in there. I collect lots of reference materials because part of what I enjoy about trucks is the engineering that goes into them.I dont build any show pony Peterbilts, but I will build plenty of ugly iron Autocars. I have defintely "advanced" since I started building, but Im not going to rate myself as a builder. I have fun, and I love doing it. I love when another builder raises the bar and makes me want to try that detail on my own build. My down fall is I only finish about 5% of what I start, but Im ok with that. I can always come back to them later. The only thing that matters is that we are each happy with our own builds, and some other peoples builds! Theres a few trucks on this forum that I wouldnt mind having!
