  1. mikemodeler added a post in a topic What's your next model purchase?   

    Despite telling myself "No more models", I have found a couple of the MPC WWII Jeeps on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $14 the last two weeks and figured they were worth it for parts to fix some Jeeps already in my collection.
    I truly have to rid myself of some more models before I buy any more as I am trying to de-clutter my life in other areas. I am looking forward to getting some bench time here real soon, maybe getting a bunch of WIPs finished!

    I saw a news article last night that mentioned Wal Mart was getting their toy department ready for Christmas shopping earlier than usual this year, so I would imagine there was a lot of stuff that was clearance priced in anticipation of this event.
    Haven't seen a model kit at Wal Mart in years that had me wanting to buy it. Lately it has either been Hobby Lobby or online for me, don't see that changing much soon unless someone opens a hobby shop in the Charlotte area.

    Very nice, simple, clean and well detailed!

    Had to look at this for a few minutes before I realized it was the Revell snap fast kit.
    Very well done, as always!

    Looks pretty good to me, especially since it has been awhile for you! Keep at it and you will turn out better looking models as you gain confidence and experience.

    Well said Harry.

    Aaron, the AMT '78 Ford kit has a F-150 4wd set up in it so it is accurate for the Moebius kit as long as you are depicting a 1/2 ton 4wd F150 truck. The F250 and F350 trucks had leaf spring set ups while the F150 had coil springs and radius arms, like the Bronco.

    That looks great! I wonder how many of us will build a 4x4 version ahead of the actual kit being released by Moebius ?
     
    I need to get started on my '69 F 100 shortbed 4x4.

    That is an excellent rendition of that kit. Beautiful paint, great details and perfect finish to the model.

    Check with some of the guys who sell collections- Jim in Ohio, Fred Sterns, Dean's Hobby Shop- they might have one or might have one coming in soon.
    If you have any shows coming up in your area, you might find one there.
  15. mikemodeler added a post in a topic Looking for a 1/24 light strip   

    That is a 1/10th scale light bar that would probably look cartoonish on the Meng F350. I don't have mine in front of me, but if I had to guess it would be rather large compared to the rest of the model.
    Your best bet would be to scratchbuild one, shouldn't be that hard/
