      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.

    I have one done in resin, it was in a plain box when I got it, so I have no idea who made it. It's a pretty nice casting.

    I have the Ford N-series and F-800 that he does. They are really nice!. He's in Romania and shipping can take several months. You have to be patient. He's been really good to deal with, though.

    Looking for a wheel and tire
    Does anyone know of a wheel and tire combo similar to this? Either from a kit of aftermarket. It looks to be around a 17" rim.

    Fireball already makes tires that should work on this, unless the wheels are an odd size.

    That looks great! I'm surprised no one's ever done one before. The Loadstar was used for all sorts of things. Around here, it seemed like every other farm had at least one!

    That's looking great Paul!! I can't wait until it's ready. It's a "must buy" for me!

    This is a combo set Round 2 could do. As far as I know all the kits are accounted for:

    Ollie's always seems to have Lindberg kits in their stores. They only get Round2 (AMT/MPC) and Revell stuff once or twice a year. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to which stores get what. Some have a decent selection one time and nothing the next. As for where they get them, it's hard to tell. The stuff they got this time isn't exactly undesirable junk. Who knows, stacks of Revell Model A Coupes may show up there at some point!

    It's working for me now.
     
  13. Dave Toups added a post in a topic Ollie's strike again   

    I was there the day before and they only had the Lindberg stuff. I work in Edgewood, so it's not too far if I go afterwards.

    I remember the "checkerboard" AMT kits! The quality control on those was pretty bad. Someone once told me they selected the subjects for those based on how close the tooling was to the molding machine! That's hilarious if true. Good thing Round2 came in and saved them!

    Thanks for the heads-up! I went there today and was able to pick up a lot of stuff. They had the best selection out of all the stores I've been to so far.
