  1. Engine color AMT White Freightliner SD

    If you don't have true Cummins beige, my go-to is Tamiya's Wooden Deck Tan (TS-68). I find it's not as dark as other "tan" colored paint.
  2. Updated list maybe?

    I just posted this yesterday in Truck News & Reviews – hope it helps… According to Rocketfin.com, there are a few kits coming up for release: http://www.rocketfin.com/heavy_truck_models.cfm Great Dane Extendable Flatbed Trailer - Due 2018 Wilson Livestock Van Trailer - Due 2018 Mack DM800 - Due 2018 Peerless Logging Trailer - Due 2018 Italeri Freightliner FLD120 - Due 2018 The Autocar A64B, Contruction Bulldozer and Coca-Cola trailer just hit the market a short while ago.

  4. Santa Fe International Harvester CO4000

    WOW, this is great, nice work! The weathering job against the orange paint is just awesome. Love the extra detail work too!!
  5. Just in time for spring, is this "spring green" 1/24 Western Star 5964 Constellation. Painted with Tamiya Candy Lime Green. A pretty straight forward build with no frills. Just added bare metal foil, reflective tape and added fender mud guards. Had some challenges with the hood lining up (which was surprising, given the precision of these Italeri kits).
  6. Mack RD600 conversion?

    This link ma be helpful as well - http://www.ppvintagekits.com/index.html Steve
  7. COE Cab

    here's the link: http://aitruckmodels.com/product-category/conversionkits/ GMC, Marmon, Hayes, Mack etc..
  8. Not sure if this has been already posted, but just saw this: Revell Kenworth K-100 Aerodyne - due in 2017 http://www.rocketfin.com/heavy_truck_models.cfm
  9. The only logical next step R2 has would be to re-issue the Mack Cruiseliner COE… wishful thinking I suppose.
  10. Looks like this is confirmed—if the box art is accurate—it will be the "Matlack" version of the R685ST kit. This is on the Round2 website as of today Thurs. 3/23. http://round2corp.com/product/mack-r685st-semi-tractor/ "The Kats at AMT have listened to what truck modelers want to see again, and here’s a top selection – the Mack R685ST tractor! This super-detailed big rig has all the great parts truck modelers want, including the wheel options that have been left out of previous releases! It has been spruced up with expanded and improved decals, too! It features fantastic Retro Deluxe™ vintage packaging to boot. Get truckin’ with AMT!"
  11. AMT Kenworth W925 Questions

    That would also be confirmed here on Rocketfin: http://www.rocketfin.com/heavy_truck_models.cfm
  12. You may have some luck digging through this archive of conversion and detailing articles. I have this to be a gold mine (go to source) of information on many of my projects: http://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/model_magazine_articles/ CM07 May 1991 Detroit 8V92N & 8V92TA http://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/model_magazine_articles/car_modeller/cm07_may_1991_detro/
  13. Hi all, not sure if this has been posted already but just saw this – Round2 releasing the White Freightliner Single-Drive (AMT 1004): http://round2corp.com/product/white-freightliner-single-drive-tractor/ - Steve
  14. NASA Pete 1/25

    Excited to see where this one goes - very ambitious, and unique subject matter!
  15. Will Chandler's 1970 Kenworth K-123

    Thanks all, I'm genuinely humbled by all the positive comments – it was a fun build! And thank you Russell for posting it on the "Movin' On" Facebook page. Awesome. Steve
