      Unfortunately, we were unable to upgrade the board software due to some technical difficulties. We will try again once we get the problems worked out.

    Hmmm, guess the Ferrari crowd is dormant.  If there are no takers by tomorrow I will switch out kits.

    My 50th will be in October of this year.  I have been away from this area for the majority of my adult life, 21 years in the military then later 12 years in ministry, so I grew up differently and away from all of them.  I have made it back for a couple reunions.  Since returning 5 years ago I have been in contact with a few members of my class, we get together once or twice a year and have dinner.  In high school it was The Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, and the  Beatles.  In my early military career it was Grand Funk Railroad, Iron Butterfly, and Black Sabbath.

    Good stuff, I kind of like the "John Deere" Audi.

    Those wheels may be available in resin, but I believe you are going to have one heck of a time finding those rubber bands...err...I mean tires to fit them.  Good luck in your search.  A local guy has a 1:1 jacked-up 1-ton dually Dodge with big rig tires on it.

    Beautiful build of an outstanding truck.  As others have said, it could easily be mistaken for a real one, excellent work.  And it is a FORD, so, all is good.

    May be just a visual thing, but it does look to be too shallow.  The length seems proportionally alright, but I think the tank itself needs to be a bit taller.

    Thanks for the info.  May use that idea on a future build.

    Awesome work on a somewhat of a 'pig' design.  I built one into a short-track car and have another and was wondering what to do with it.  This build is giving me some inspiration.  Can you give us some details on how you did the fenders?  Those are really beautiful.

    Good looking restoration and even the box also - wow!

    Excellent work, especially like the mud around the cow's feet and on the farmer's pants.  And yeah, the "recycled field grass" does add just the right touch.

    Beautiful weathering and nice overall build.  Now if you had a couple sacks of cracked corn and a sack of sugar back there with all those mason jars, you would need to keep an eye out for "revenoors".

    If you are wanting a short wheelbase Fleetside, the AMT '60 Chevrolet Pickup has one that will work.  There was very minute body changes over those model years.
  14. TarheelRick added a post in a topic Quick Build-Lindberg 1/32 1949 Ford   

    Good looking build.  That is one of the funkiest looking Ford bodies I have seen in awhile.  That grille looks more like a late Packard than a Ford and the "fins" on the rear fenders are way out of proportion.  Still, all in all you did a good job.
  15. TarheelRick added a post in a topic 1936 Toyoda AA   

    Good looking kit and I like where you are going with it.  Of course my mind's eye is seeing it with an injected small-block Ford and some 10.5 slicks out back.
