    On the North Shore, many of the MDC vehicles were re-purposed Mass Highway trucks, especially the snow plows.

    The old WB stuff was the best! Bugs, Daffy, Roadrunner, Wylie Coyote, Marvin Martian, Yosemite Sam .......

    OK, show of hands, who remembers the old Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoons? I know I sure do! Moose and squirrel, Boris and Natasha, Sherman and Peabody... ah the memories. Heck, my favorite was Mr. Knowitall, what was yours?

    The later versions of the Heritage series lacked the rib on top of the fenders, which ran from the headlight back toward the center of the wheel opening and stopped at the turn signal. The Italeri version has this rib- Exactly what year WS stopped this I don't know for certain. The top 2 pictures are a 1987, the bottom 2 are mid 90's (94-96).

    It's actually a little older than 1994, more like a late 1980's (86-89). The engine is an NTC 400 which was originally used in the FLC Freightliner. It's also not a very accurate kit, which I'm sure the Italeri haters on this forum will be quick to point out, so I'll just throw it out there first. I personally am NOT an Italeri hater, rather more of an Italeri supporter and die hard fan. The WS shares much of the same parts as the FLC, and that takes away from the kits individuality. However, with some kit bashing and scratch building you can get a fairly accurate replica.

    Terrific. Just what this forum needs, another "Negative Norman". I guess you can't please all of the people all of the time...
    Most people that frequent this forum want simplicity, it's a case of less is more. Now you come along and rain on the parade and criticize the layout because it doesn't have sub categories. I think the OP's intention was to have a little fun with this, either join in and have some fun or ignore this thread and move on.

    That does it for me. SOLD!

    I've built both the AMT Peerless trailer and the Ertl Paystar logger a few times over the years, and neither one had anything that resembled a telescopic reach. I find it a little hard to believe that both Ertl and AMT would miss something like this, especially Ertl.
    Guess I'll stick with dump trailers.... I'll be in my room, goodnight all

    Bill,
    If you should decide to switch back to Firefox, and want to use an ad blocker, you might want to install U Block Origin instead of Ad Block Plus. I find pages load even faster with U Block

    The Ertl Rubber Duck was/is an epic failure! Without a doubt it was Ertl's greatest mistake

    Right now it's slow, it took better than a minute for this thread to open once I clicked on it to read this topic

    Fotki no longer offers the free account. You get a 30 day free trial when you sign up, but after that 30 days you must pay for the account-
