  1. One More Class 325 on the bench

    As the saying goes a picture is worth a thousand words I can not write the words to satisfactorily praise your work. I am extremely fortunate to have you as a hobby friend. Have you heard from the veteran in Hawaii that got his model? It would be great to see a photo of him with the model. greg

  5. What Irked You Today?

    For Snake Since 1967, Ohio has issued special license plates for DUI offenders, sometimes called "scarlet letter plates" or "party plates." The red-lettering-on-yellow plates were initially issued at the behest of judges. But a sweeping overhaul of Ohio's drunken driving laws in 2004 mandated the plates for second offenses and instances where a driver's blood-alcohol level is twice the legal limit.
  6. What Irked You Today?

    What irked me today was seeing a $55.000 Mercedes Benz SUV in a Walmart parking lot with Ohio special plates (yellow and red lettered) which designate a convicted DUI driver AKA 'party plates'. I guess with that type of vehicle all he could afford after the court costs, attorney fees, insurance and fines was shopping at Walmart. greg
  7. KDW Garbage Truck, 1/24 Scale

    The cab is a Mack MR cab- M= style R= refuse chassis and cab variations. It is not 1/24th scale maybe 1/24 mm It is small and around 1/43rd to 1/32. I had a friend buy one and returned it due to inaccurate advertising got his money back. The M cab for refuse had a standard drivers door the same as the commercial cab and the passenger door had a sliding larger window for visibility greg

  9. Are things THIS serious with this kit?!

    The original AMT van body had a removal recess in the roof and the sides had optional side pieces for windows or sheet metal sides. What was nice it made a curb side option of having windows on the right side. easy to make ambulances The goofy part were the headlights greg

    Roll up doors are not hard if you are not making them functional, Did this years ago Evergreen slotted car siding and square stock Used this method on this fire truck using three different sizes of siding on the roll ups greg
  14. Renwal The Visible Automobile Chassis

    Nice picture of the chassis, I hope he does have the clear hubcaps. One thing that the renewal originals had was a replacement parts lists where you could send for pats that broke, I used mine a lot since the camshaft always broke in the engine, I loved the suggestion of using Vasoline to make the parts move easier. Does any one have the radial engine? greg

    A simple system is to secure thread/string inside the cylinders the length of the stretch, the string stops the cylinders before they come apart and doesn't interfere with the operations of the cylinder. greg
