  1. 1/25 AMT Peterbilt Wrecker

    I'll take 3 of those kits ! Credit card warmed up and ready! LOL
  2. B.R.B.O. Peterbilt 352

    Yeah.. you ain't kidding it's a real pain. Another marvel of AMT engineering :-( I built this kit when I was like 13 yrs old and no way did I struggle with it like this thing. Was the original kit 40 yrs ago that much better?
  3. 2019 Round2 Truck Kit Releases

    Either !! or even better -- both !! And I would love to see a grain trailer kit like the Transtar II Eagle is pulling on the box !
  4. best beginner amt truck model

    Correct me if i don't have this correct -- I had heard that since the 4300 used the 4270 mold (different hood length for the 4300) that the front axle needed to be relocated a bit to get the front wheels to center in the wheel opening of the front fenders ?

    The one thing I can say about the AMT 1/25 truck kits is *DO NOT* start with the Freightliner cabover ! I'm currently working on the AMT Pete 352 cabover, and this one has fit issues (as do almost all AMT truck kits).

    Hey guys -- any of you that have built this kit: did you run into this issue where the rear drive shaft between the drive axles seems too long ?? Here's a pic of mine -- if you did, what did you do ??

  9. Hi all: Two things I need some help with. 1) The piece called "air ride leveling switches" -- the instructions aren't really clear where on the frame rails this piece should go. Are the "fingers just supposed to butt against the rear cross member as I show in the picture ? How do you know where to locate it on the frame rails ? 2) Front springs -- the pin on one of the front springs is higher than the pin on the other front spring. So on one side, you have a gap between the frame rail and the spring mount bracket -- what have you done with this ?? Thanks !
  10. Anyone convert a Revell W900 Aerodyne to a day cab?

    Love the day cab !! Did you scratch build the back panel or take it from somewhere ? Looks great !
  11. SCENES UNLIMITED

    I've been talking to him for the past few months at our club meetings -- and there is nobody that pays more attention to detail and quality. Outstanding !!

    Thanks ! I'm darn slow. Hopefully I can primer the frame and get some paint on the engine and transmission this week.
  13. TAT 2018 IH F-4270

    Got a little bit done today. Was a bit disappointed that even this early Ertl kit has a large amount of ejector pin marks that need cleaning up like the current AMT kits. But.. on we go...

    While my B.R.B.O. Pete project is giving me grief, I worked on this one a bit that I didn't finish for last years contest.
  15. B.R.B.O. Peterbilt 352

    Thank you for doing that !
  16. Another kenworth snap kit

    Ahh... OK. Nice work !
  17. Future Possible Moebius Semi Trailer Kit?

    In other words, put a ProStar and a LoneStar in your stash now before they are gone forever -- in case there isn't another "spot run". Thanks.
  18. Another kenworth snap kit

    Looks fantastic !! The 60" sleeper really makes the truck. Where did you get the 60" sleeper ?
  19. Future Possible Moebius Semi Trailer Kit?

    I do like the new front end on the latest Cascadia Freightshaker too !
  20. Future Possible Moebius Semi Trailer Kit?

    Or a Pete 579 ?

    Got the rear suspension on now. Working on the rear axles and the mystery brake assemblies.
