  1. I really don’t need more project ideas but this one I have to do ! Fabulous build on all three!
  2. I watched this one from the beginning and it came out phenomenal! If one didn’t know you would think it was a new kit!
  3. Doesn’t look like a what if! Nice build of a truck MACK would have sold many of once the market increased ! It took awhile for the double bunk trucks to take off!
  4. They could always talk to Thermo King and release it in its very early livery!
  5. If Round 2 is going to tool a body for a 71-72 Road Runner, I would hope they would put it on the AMT 71 Charger kit. I love all the old MPC kits but they were not very accurate under the skin. The chassis is from the mid 60’s and was under just about every Mopar kit they did. You can bet if that tooling is remotely salvageable they will do a 71-72 Road Runner. The body took a beating when it was modified to do the Petty Plymouth. I personally am happy that we have anything to critique at all , this hobby isn’t no where near popular like it once was !
  6. The Revell kit is an early first generation T600 that made it’s debut in 1986 . I have yet to acquire one of these but if it is based on the earlier W900 kit that’s not a bad thing as it was very accurate and the real T600 was actually based on the W900 platform.
  7. Judging by the front axel this one is getting spokes ! Looks great so far , I always love your builds!
  8. Glad that this truck was reissued, although I am not so sure of the tires , would rather have seen them left as Goodyear with the tire size and lettering moulded on . But they do look good and I have many boxes full of original tires to work with.
  9. Nice score! The Transtar even built was a steel! Same on the Peterbilt.
  10. You don’t see too many Pete’s with spokes ! This is fabulous, I don’t need anymore ideas but I like it ! Have to do one!
  11. They build up well ! And they do look right out of the box. When it comes to prototypically correct , the two cars are very different from one another, but these days there is a lot of references out there to do an accurate build.
  12. I think that for an out of the box build of either kit , Baker or Petty readily available paint is a fine way to go . Unless you’re modifying both kits to be prototypically correct the color is a moot point. I have just started on both kits ( original issue on both ) and that’s the route I will take. I also will do both as accurate as I can with the current reissues, for those, aftermarket decals , correcting the chassis and bodies and most certainly paint as correct as. possible will happen ! In the end what ever looks good to your own eye is all that counts!
  13. One of my all time favourite trailer kits ! Always get a kick out of the box art with a dressed up W925 Kenworth pull the Consolidated Freightways Doubles!
  14. A good supply of flotation tires can be had if you score a Turnpiker Peterbilt Kit , all 10 tires are floats in that kit ! I have two of them , never run out of floats now!
  15. Go with the spare , it adds extra to that part of the build ! This is a neat piece ! I have to admit I am thinking of a future steer car build as well ! Train first!
