00Ranger added a topic in On the Workbench: Big RigsVentvisor wrap-around bug deflectorHas anyone come across the brown bug deflectors that wrap-around three sides of a conventional hood? I need one for an Italeri FLD120. KFS has some old school types that sit on top of the hood. Ventvisor company makes them for the real rigs, i've been looking but can't find any.

00Ranger added a topic in On the Workbench: Big RigsMaking a double axle into a single axle ???I've purchased an AMT Mack DM600 tractor that I plan on making into an early 70's Roadway tractor. I have sucessfully shortened the frame of the rig to what I need. The model comes out of the box with a double drive axle with trunion. I need to make this rig a single drive axle, however I am not quite sure on exactly how to convert what came with the model. Can I convert the parts with the model or should I search for a single axle/leaf setup from a different model ? I am just getting into modelling so I don't have any extra parts kickin' around. I have searched around the forum and several other sites and have seen this done but cant quite tell how.
Any information or pointers would be greatly appreciated.
