  1. Finished and detailed out with kit parts. It's still missing some items. Specifically the throttle body and air intake portion. And of course the miles of cables and hoses. If I had added all of those you would never be able to see the engine. Kitchen Table Resins
  2. Strange I can still see the pics. Here's the link to my Fotki site so that you can see them. Visit My Website
  3. Hey that helps a lot. I passed the info on the the guy that asked me. Maybe it's the 250 which was the last gen of the 144 engine introduced in 1960. Thanks, Ken
  4. It was passed to me by someone who is trying to find out all he can about the car. Other than that I have no idea.
  5. That's true for the Carbed version of the 6. However the fuel injected version is indeed indented to make clearance for the plenum and the throttle body. I can post pics later. Thanks,
  6. Unfortunately I'm just the messenger passing on what was asked of me. I do believe they were refereing to Dale Sr. As to the car it's my understanding it was campaigned in the early 70's. From other sources I've been told that the popular engine in that class was the 240/300. However if they were required to run stock engines I agree that it would have been the smaller 6. Take care,
  7. Ok, so I admit that I know nothing about this area of modeling. What I do know is that this car ran an early Ford 6. And for some reason people assume that I know all about every car that ran one. I've had several people ask me this question. So if you can help me help them I would most certainly appreciate it. The question most often asked is what was the CI of this car? The one in the black and white photo. I believe based on the time it ran that it most probably had the Ford big 6, the 240/300. But was that true and if so which one was it. You can tell there is a marking on the hood in this photo but that's all.
  8. I was pretty good timing on your part. Thanks, Ken
  9. Ok here's what I was going for: Here is the very first pull from the new mold. No cleanup no detail painting just raw resin from the mold. Well what do you think. Ready for production or back to the drawing board?
  10. Shhhh, Don't tell anybody but I'm working on the master now. We'll see how it turns out.
  11. Jody, Would it be possible for me to get a copy of that. I do mostly small parts like my engines and I doubt I'll ever get into anything as large as a body but it might have some useful info for me. If you can please send it to me at: kitchen_table_resins@yahoo.com Thanks, Ken
  12. More info pictures can be found at the link. Kitchen Table Resins You can also contact me via email at: kitchen_table_resins@yahoo.com
  13. I like that a lot. One question, did you widen the front fenders? On the 1 1/2 ton and larger trucks Chevy used wider fenders. Here is a tow truck that I built. Unfortunately it's not the best photo to show the mods. I scratch built the tow bed and the booms on this one.
  14. Please include me on your email with the plans. That might be just the ticket for me. Thanks,
  15. I would love to see more shots of this one. What's that big black thing near the left front tire? It appears to be too large for a headlight. If it is what's he using?
  16. That drawing inspired me to build this. I used a pre-painted kit and added a parts pack allison engine. Notice that the springs have broken down from the weight of the engine just like the real thing would have.
  17. Hey, here's how that one winds up. LOL. I built this years ago in similar colors to yours. This was an early attempt at weathering. I don't know whether to redo it with what I learned or keep it. Nice looking model by the way. Where'd you get the figures?
  18. Yes, No, Yes. Love the taillight treatment it really works. No way on the GTO. You can't improve on perfection. I definitely like the updated treatment on the 300, but I think a little more modern treatment of the headlights would help it. Get rid of the trim rings and fair it into the body. Otherwise a great improvement on the design.
  19. I used the C-600 kit for the chassis, engine, wheels and tires. The bed and dual axle are from the snowplow kit. The cab is from the Model King issue of the 79 Ford F100. The fender flares are scratch built items and the grille is from a friend on the HHMB (Repstock). This is a bit of a stretch for me. Normally if a 1:1 wouldn't fit in my garage I wouldn't build it. But when Repstock offered the parts I couldn't pass up the chance to use them.

  21. Thanks for the help and suggestions. Here's a pic of what I came up with. I'll post more pics under the completed projects section.
  22. Richard, I bet you were wondering what happened to me. I got busy and couldn't answer right away. Then I had a devil of a time finding your post again. The latest news on FRAM is that we are probably going to be changing our meeting place. The current plan is that we'll meet once a month at Hobby Town south at Citadel Crossing and once a month downtown at Compleat Games. That is if we can get agreement from the stores. We've approached them and they are interested but it's not a done deal yet. Please send me an email to my home address at kitchen_table_resins@yahoo.com so that I can contact you directly. We'll also be posting flyers in the hobby shops when we get it arranged. Thanks for your patience and sorry to have taken so long to get back to you. Ken
  23. First off this is a stretch project for me. I don't normally build models of any vehicle that would be too large to fit in my garage. However for some reason this project really grabbed me so I'm gonna run with it. I'm building a late 70's F-600 based on some resin parts acquired from a friend of mine. I'm building it up using the C-600 chassis and using the dumpbed from the AMT snowplow kit. It's coming along nicely and I'm wanting to add some additional details. Specifically I have a broom and shovel that I want to mount on the outside. I'm stumped as to how to do it and for the life of me I can't seem to find any pictures of how it's done on 1:1 trucks. Does anyone have any pics or suggestions on how this might be done? Thanks, Ken
