    Over the weekend I got the engine mated to the frame and I had Doctors appointment this morning so I had the day off and got one side of the engine plumbed. I plan on doing brake and fuel lines as well.

    Looking for rig kits any and all
    I'm on a rig kick and looking for projects, all kits preferably older. I also prefer amt, I will take all most of the time started or un-started as long as they are complete. I'm also interested in decals and some parts like, wheels, tires, engines, exhaust parts, sleepers, 5th wheels, and chrome parts. I am also interested in trailer kits. My trade list is limited but let me know what you've got and what you want, Thanks!

    Got a bit done on the engine and frame this week. Not done by no means but getting there. I'm trying to add only light weathering on this one. Still waiting on the decals before I lay down paint on the body though I did get the body work finished and a final sanding done tonight.

    70s White Freightner COE, trying somthing new
    Hey guys, Started this a month ago, botched the body right out of the box. I got another one off ebay witch had a gap issue witch I did fix. I had to do away with the center seam witch looks awful. I still have to work on the left drip rails and a bit on the right side but that's not too bad, I ordered decals from model truckin.com and plan on doing like the last pic.. does anyone have a source for detail parts like wires, air hoses, springs and under cab insulation? Thanks

    Hello all, Getting back and finishing some builds. I've been working on this one since December. My first "real" big rig, few mods, I originally wanted to do it as a dump truck, but changed my mind. Still have to make the radiator hose, the kit one is MIA. Thanks for looking and all comments ae welcome!

    Share your weathering tips
    As some of you may know I enjoy weathering my models and though its ok I've never really cared for my results. So hat are some of the things you guys use? I've tried washes before with no luck and usually use various paints. Also, what do you use for rust powder? Thanks

    Nice build and story! I like to build old work trucks so I'll have to file away the work bed idea.

    70 1/2 Camaro, 4X4!!!!
    I pulled this out and finished it up over the holiday, my first attempt at a large amount of modification. I used a late 70s ford frame, axels, driveshaft and transfer case, shortened it, and shortened the driveshaft. I cut out the stock gas tank, filled in the hole and made a support and bumper in the back around the ford gas tank. I put in the stock small block Chevy and used tri-five Chevy exhaust manifolds flipped up-side-down with homemade pipes, also added a homemade roll bar along with seat belts and a steering wheel from the parts box. wheels and tires as well as the air cleaner and plates are from the parts box too. Thanks for looking an all comments/suggestions welcome.

    '71 f100 rebuild....kind of
    This summer I built this kit up using a new "overspraying" weathering technique I had developed. I never really liked the way it turned out the weathering just didn't work with the blue paint so I re built it, kind of. I added the wood bed walls, red door w/f150 trim and primer along with re-weathering a lot of it with various paints I also added an inspection sticker and some junk I the bed. Thanks for looking and all comments/suggestions welcome!
     
    I only have the one pic of it for now...
