    Looks like you've got a real monster on your hands. Do you have sources for the rest of your running/dump gear or is that all going to get scratched?
  2. White Road Boss & Logging Trailer

    Very impressive, Sergei. That looks great.
  3. Hi from New Mexico

    Didn't expect to see so many builders from here on this forum. Very cool! ABQ myself.

    A wee bit of a derailment, but what would make the 426 unsuitable for short round track, other than weight issues? Would the smaller track not give the engine room to really wind out, thus keeping it down in the low RPM ranges, necessitating shorter gearing?

    I'm very impressed with your replication of offhighway grime. How'd you make that look so good?
  6. Loader Cat 966C

    Now these are projects I love! I'll certainly be following this one!
  7. KW aerodyne wrecker - decal time !!!

    Looks like you've got your work cut out for you. Will this be a curbside to save on frustration or will we get the whole hog?
  8. 1967 International Loadstar 1600

    Thankfully providing one's own power doesn't seem so hard, the IH 345 looks fairly similar to a smallblock ford to me (with some cursory looks anyway) but with a different intake manifold and front dress, but they don't seem so bad to stratch.
  9. 1967 Trans-Am Mustang - Under Glass

    Looks great. With all these old T/A's popping up, we might need us a proper race. Could use a few bowties first though.... Man, they really did shoehorn that dual-quad in there, didn't they!
  10. The Disappointments of Online Buying

    It would be a disservice to not finish out the story, so here goes; after emailing Buffalo Road, they said that the incomplete kit was sent to me by mistake, and that they would ship out a new kit free of charge and let me keep the parts one. Great! It arrived today, and was exactly what I wanted; a brand new box, still in its shrinkwrap, with parts neatly bagged inside undisturbed. It was here quickly and there was no wheeling and dealing to get it resolved. Overall I'm satisfied - they owned up to a mistake and rectified it and that's all we would really want in this situation. I'll be building this one soon, see you guys On The Workbench!
  11. I figure this is the place for this complaint. If not, my apologies. A week or so ago I ordered an Italeri M923A1 "Big Foot" truck (kit no. 279) from Buffalo Road Imports. The listing marked the kit as new stock of a discontinued kit - at a good price too, so I jumped on it. It came in the mail today, and upon opening it, there was an immediate problem - the kit had been somewhat assembled already. The box didn't have it's shrinkwrap and was slightly damaged (both of which I could live with) but the frame assembly had been started, with a frame laying on top of the trees in the box. The bench seat and front bumper were also loose in the box, and the instructions had large, yellowed glue stains on them - as did the frame. Upon further inspection, I discovered that the engine and transmission assembly had been mounted upside down in the frame - and judging by the other parts, and the detail, I'm fairly certain I won't be able to flip it the right way. Needless to say, I'm pretty unhappy with the situation - and composing an email to Buffalo Road Imports as soon as I get this post out there. I'll update if they fix the issue - but I'm dubious of trusting them, especially if they offer an exchange. For now, it's a waste of $40.
  12. Galion Tandem Roller Under Construction

    Paint looks fine to me! Rollers aren't the most attractive creatures anyway, so no sweat either way.
  13. 1974 Dodge Bighorn - Done!!!

    Looks great to me! Man, the track on that front axle is deceptively thin!
  14. GW Trucks has a VT903 as well. If you get one I'd love to see pictures since I'm also considering an order. I believe one of the Snowman rigs had 8v92 power as well, but I can't 100% that.
  15. 1974 Dodge Bighorn - Done!!!

    Very nice sir. The forced perspective of the painted molding and the long hood almost makes the windshield look chopped, lol
