      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    Looking for tires
    Anybody have a couple extra tires for an AMT?Matchbox 1/32 Mack, kit # PK-6804? I obtained it recently and just went through the parts, only missing two tires! These are the hollow vinyl ones, not the later plastic style.

    I work for a dealer. There are no plans for any updates to the 9900. The new models will be available in many different configurations for both severe (dump, mixer, etc) and for OTR type tractors. I have seen several layouts and these are really nice trucks.

    How did you do the framework for the curtain side? I'd like to do one soon.
  6. Modelcollector added a post in a topic Sooooooooooooooooooooo.. which way is up?   

    Guys, the truck Rick used had been crashed and was beat up pretty good. He used what was good and built this unique ride. He has also built a large version of the Radio Flyer wagon.

    Very nice combo! Do you have pics of the framework under the cover? I would like to do the same with the trash bag but not sure of the framework. Did you use aluminum tubing or styrene and bend to shape?

    Thank you sir. It was built for my friends Shawn & Penny Brownfield. He asked me to build it for him, he never has enough time.

    Thanks everyone! The final results are over in Under Glass. I donated this one to the Convoy for Kids fundraiser show yesterday. She brought $135 in the silent auction. Glad I could do a small part to help.

    Thanks everybody. She brought in $135 at the auction today. The voting buckets alone for the real trucks brought in $4900! There were 40 really nice trucks there and a great cause was supported well!

    Thanks everybody. The truck's been done for awhile. Trailer is a Fruehauf tanker frame, scratched box, fenders, etc. The tank is Plastruct tube and ends. Wheels from a Freightliner COE.
  21. Modelcollector added a post in a topic 352 COE & Race trailer   

    Thanks guys. Yes Jim, I cut the frame behind the deck plate on one, in front of the deck plate on the other and glued them up. The inspiration is from a guy I met last year. His 389 is stretched to 321" and painted the same way. You can find pics of it on Facebook. Look for Shawn and Penny Brownfield Trucking, its called Creepin'.

  25. Modelcollector added a post in a topic Posting pics   

    Mine doesn't have 4 boxes under the pictures. I have the word "Direct" on the left and then the url line on the right, nothing else. On the right side of the page I have 4 boxes, Email & IM, HTML Embed, Flash Embed, and Slideshow. Not sure what I have that is different. It does seem Photobucket is different from what I've used before. There are some little "gears" up in the top right corner of the pics when I roll over them, they drop down Share, Copy, Move, Edit, Delete.
