  1. For those waiting for the F250 4x4 conversion from Fireball Modelworks, the wait is over. Joseph has posted pictures and pricing on his website for the conversions and they look nice! He is taking orders for them! www.fireballmodels.info
  2. Some more Pickup ? worth looking at, Utes.

    IDK, thinking it is an updated Brat more than anything.
  3. 70's Dodge truck sweptside short box?

    The Modelhaus did offer a shortbed conversion but they are no longer in operation.
  4. Saying Hi from Upstate South Carolina.

    Welcome David! There is a modeler group called SCMA and they have several shows throughout the state every year. Their next one is in Spartanburg in January and I highly recommend it as there is a decent sized swap area and great bunch of models on the tables. Keep an eye out for the date.
  5. `64 Chevrolet Fleetside

    Looks great so far, nice details. The oil cap is upside down, it should read "710" instead of "oil" ! JK,that is a joke in the auto parts biz!
  6. 1972 Jeep Commando

    Looks good from here! Nice job on the engine swap and the wheels & tires.
  7. Time for a look at some different Pickup truck offerings ?

    I would love to see some old Dodge pickups come out, their styling might not be as sexy as the Fords and Chevies of the same era, but they were tough trucks. I have the Modelhaus Crew Cab '64 Dodge to build, still trying to decide if I want to make it into a 4wd or build it as the 2wd that Don cast it as. Jeep and International pickups would be nice to have, but most likely from a resin caster. The rest of the trucks shown have appeal, but I don't think they would sell in numbers high enough to justify a kit company tooling them up.
  8. What Do I Do?

    It's always nice to get the unexpected compliments and sometimes when you do, you are left at a loss as to how to deal with them. In this case, there isn't a simple answer. My inclination would be to do as to what was done to you. I am sure you know someone here (or elsewhere) who would love the kit you received and if not, you will find a worthy recipient in due time. It might be via a trade or just a surprise with other items, but I am sure you can give someone a gift like you got.
  9. Ltl9000 wrecker

    Beautiful, nice job and love the details like the opening doors.
  10. Ford Taurus Prisoner Transport

    Another masterpiece Chuck! Love your "different" builds and how you manage to pull it all together.
  11. Kit bashing a 1961 Corvette from two Revell kits

    That is one beautiful, well detailed model. Love the back story!
  12. MAD Morgan Automotive Detail

    Buy with confidence, Kris is a great guy, has excellent products and fast service. PM him here.
  13. Highway thru Hell

    I think that is just north of the border, but will check here in the states. Most of the episodes I have seen are shown on The Weather Channel.
  14. Moebius '65 F-100 Flareside Pickup!

    Funny how when viewed at a different angle, it appears to be much closer to the 1:1.
