      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    I forgot all about the figures that came with the kit.  I darkened Pams hair and gave her glasses.

    Found an "in progress" picture of the chassis and motor.

    Here are some more pictures of the stake truck.  No pics of the cab tilted. When I put the grill in, the cab won't tilt more than 10-15 degrees after.

    AMT Ford C600 Stake
    Hey Gang!
    Just finished an AMT C600 Stake that I got in a trade with Sam I Am.  Done up in Ford colors, I grew up in Dearborn Hts, Mi and these trucks were up and down Ford Rd. all day every day

    Chimneyville figures
    Hi Gang!
    I picked up some Chimneyville 1/24 people at the swap meet this past weekend.
    Couldn’t beat the price at $2 each.  I can identify Andy and Goober from the Andy Griffith Show,
    But cant figure out who the third guy is?  The p/ns on them are CH-44, CH-49, and CH-50.
    I’m having zero luck looking up Chimneyville figures,  it appears that Chimneyville does not have their own site?   Also picked up a Chimneyville LE-5 (looks to be a guy driving), is he supposed to be someone or just a generic guy driving?
    Thanks for any insight into these figures
