  1. My modeling style is painful and slow. I tend to lose interest for a while then come back to things, that and real life problems seem to come up too. But I am about ready to start on it again. Thanks to the help of a forum member (Mr. Mopar) I have obtained a few parts I needed to keep going. In fact they are in chrome stripper as I type. Stay tuned. Thanks Tom
  2. I just went through the new Revell of Germany 2019 catalog. The only new US truck to be released is the 1/24th W900 with sleeper (reissue), paint and decals had not been determined yet. No trailers.

  4. Reading is fundamental. Perhaps not so quick on the keyboard before you read the whole thing. The title should have given away which kits I was referring to being Italeri's. As I wasn't referring to the 1/25 items I specifically mention 2 items. You had a 50/50 chance of guessing the right ones, I wouldn't play the lottery if I were you it would be a waste.
  5. Stevens had listed 2 items from AMT that I believe are Italeri kits reboxed. AMT PLASTIC MODEL KITS AMT-1160 1/25 Coca-Cola White Western Star Semi Tractor Cab AMT PLASTIC MODEL KITS AMT-1164 1/25 Big Rig Semi Trailer AMT PLASTIC MODEL KITS AMT-1169 1/24 Peterbilt 378 Long Hauler Semi Tractor Cab AMT PLASTIC MODEL KITS AMT-1170 1/24 Reefer Semi Trailer
  6. As the title say I am looking for just the steps for the fuel tanks (part #92c ,93c also (91c ,94c but these aren't necessary)). They only give you one set in the kit and I need 2. I need the top and bottom pieces. I am happy to pay for them. I have looked at the photoetched from KFS and they are not the same style as I need. Thanks Tom
  7. The dump I'm not worried about I can scratch that. I just need to know the length of the box I can make the rest. I just don't know if its 20', 18' or what. I have also come up with an extra cab and hood yesterday so I think I can make the hood if I can't find one. The kit I found also has round fuel tanks so I maybe able to use those as a starting point for the ones in the picture above if all else fails. Thanks Tom
  8. This truck will have a 3406 Cat.That is what she had. Thanks Tom
  9. Thank you I will send another email to Daniel to see if he responds this time. I will email Gary as well i am not familiar with his stuff. Thanks Tom
  10. Is anyone good at extrapolating Dimension from the above photos? I suck at it. I need some ballpark dimensions on the dump box so I can start figuring up what materials I have and need. She doesn't remember how long her dump box was. All she says it was huge.3 If I don't get any answers to this question, since nobody bothered to answer the one above this post, I will assume there will be no interest in me posting anything further on it. Thanks
  11. I have been working on making new shock mounts for the front end. The kit gives a fair representation on one side and a not really so close on the other. Plus they have one mounted to the outside of the frame on the right side and on the left side its mounted on the inside of the frame. While I could find reference for the inside mounted shock it seems to not be the norm. So i am going what seems to be the most common. And I built 2 new shock mounts. The kit ones are above the new for reference. After seeing the macro I need to to a bit of shaping on the bottom still. Now I have to make the bottom shock mounts. Thanks for looking in. Tom
  12. Yes! Thank you, exactly what I was looking for. And it was in one of your threads i saw them but couldn't remember which one.
