  1. How do you display your rigs??

    This was a fabulous question and I too have been planning it forward with several projects neat completion, how to display them!
  2. Freightliner FLA (fsba) 1/25

    I can’t wait to see your progress , this is a spectacular build! For the emblems , the decal sheet in the most recent reissue of the White Freightliner, there are current Freightliner emblem on the sheet that would work well for you.
  3. 1/25 MPC '78 Dodge D-100 Pickup

    I would not pine over the lack of 4x4 parts , they were wrong for the Dodge anyway ! Transfer case was a New Process unit also found under GM trucks , the one depicted in the MPC kits was similar if not identical to that found under a Ford, or the earlier pre72 Dodge truck’s.
  4. CF white Freightliner question

    I have wanted to do an accurate version of the CF Freightliner as well , so the plan is to strip the interior tub of all diamond pleats , rob the seats from a White Motor Corp tractor kit , 5 hole wheels from a La France fire truck, scratch a v6 Detroit, move the driver side mirror down to the door middle at a canted angle, single headlamps and lose the lower bumper and chrome. Most of their trucks had the small roof lights found in the Ford Louisville kits. Glad I am deep in parts kits! As soon as the reissue Doubles set hits then I start on this one , for fun as a triple!
  5. Reissue Wishlist

    My list : Kenworth Challenge Mixer , Lowboy /Cat D8H combo , Autocar Dump, Trailmobile Moving Van ( was reissued in North American, Mayflower liveries and the race car variety as well as the original Allied Van Lines). And lastly I would love all of the 1/43 TNT series, Kenworth & Peterbilt truck’s and Fruehauf trailers.
  6. MPC Tom McEwen FED

    Yes that’s a good one ! Also the newer Revell Willy’s kits and the AMT 57 Chrysler 300 also has a really good engine in it!
  7. MPC Tom McEwen FED

    It has 426ish valve covers but rear mounted magneto is a dead giveaway and the block is also very different.
  8. 1978 Overnight Mack U Model

    It’s been a bit since I have been peeking but I love how this truck is turning out! As always you set the bar higher great job!
  9. Would the turbos from a couple of Cummins work for you, if so PM or shoot an email!
  10. MPC Tom McEwen FED

    Another source for the 392 is the Soapy Sales Funny Car Kit , not the best rendition of the engine but with little effort it can be made to look good.
  11. The first issue carried the same box art as the upcoming reissue. The second issue with a picture of the trailers built up and also carried T521 box # by AMT then also AMT Matchbox had no chrome, it was added back for the Stevens International release and I’m guessing for the upcoming reissue as well. I agree , I would rather have the plating and remove it as an option
  12. The second reissue of the CF Doubles came chrome free. I think it’s release was in 75 if I remember correctly when I bought it. A lot of the reissues later had the chrome return.
  13. 1965 Dodge D700 Dick Landy race car hauler

    Well done build of Dandy Dick’s race team!
  14. Heller 359 wrecker

    Nice work! These were such great little kits! I wish they would have been more successful for AMT, only a couple of different kits but they build up really nice!
  15. Tiny Lund Charger Daytona WIP

    For 2019 Mike’s Decals has announced that coming soon #55 Tiny Lund is in the works!
