  1. No problem, lots going on here and I know I can't keep up with everything.
  2. I always liked those Scouts, didn't like the way the rear sat on the ground though.
  3. I did my own, I described the process in the build thread, second from the bottom:
  4. Biggest thing is more light and at a lower angle, especially in the front.
  5. Thanks to everyone for taking the time to make all the kind comments! It was a fun build and fits in with my out of the ordinary tastes. BTW, I really loved their Apple Strudel and wish it was still available.
  6. Looks more like it's been sitting in the field!
  7. Peterbilt heavy haul 367

    Nice job! Saw one similar as I was headed home from work earlier this week.
  8. The decals were a challenge, I had several logos but only for modern trucks. I found an old Grumman brochure that show an appropriate era truck with the proper logo. The ad wasn't detailed enough to use, but a search of Ebay came up with a suitable option. I took a macro lens on a 46 mp dslr and got a great file. I found a raster function in Photoshop that smoothed the edges and was able to print large enough to do the trick.
  9. Calling this one done. See build thread for details: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/forum/35-on-the-workbench-pickups-vans-suvs-light-commercial/
  10. Looks nice, sadly I remember them back in the day.....
  11. Bumper question

    I had heard years ago that the handling was better at highway speeds. I also heard it was cheaper to just cut the ends off after minor accidents.
  12. Looks like we have a winner! Decals are printed and drying. Detail painting almost down along with the interior. I still have to fit the front suspension, then decals and window glazing.
  13. Kenworth W900

    Looks great, just one question, how do you plan to get it out of the garage? Those roll up doors are too low!!!!!
  14. Searching Shapeways

    Yes and no, I like to search for a specific thing and it gets frustrating when the search engine just dumps everything. Evil-Bay is bad enough, but at least you get the relevant stuff first. Shapeways has relevant items buried hundreds of items in. Seems like I have to scroll thru 1000's of items on the chance I may hit one thing I'm looking for.
