  1. Palmer model kit history?

    Does anyone know how long Palmer Plastics made model cars? And how they even stayed in business for so many years with such atrocious model kits? "Scale model" was not in their vocabulary. Does anyone even care?
  2. Post your RVs here

    Why not make your own? Camper shapes are easy, it's just a box with a lot of little boxes around it. I'd love to see this built. Scale it to the Revell Silverado, Draw some side profiles on grid paper, Grab some Evergreen sheet plastic and start cutting! Look at what Repstock did with the interior of the GMC Motorhome, none of those details came in the original RV. He built all that from box shapes of sheet plastic.

    A happy camper, yes. An RV - eh, no.
  5. Post your RVs here

    Those are awesome! Hope you don't mind I copied and pasted them here for others to see.
  6. Post your RVs here

    That bus is exactly what I wanted to see, I can almost smell the incense from here. The slide out looks good too. Maybe it's time too add an interior to it! Reminds me of a camper I started to scratch build many years ago using the Monogram F350 dually as it's mate, so it's big. I'll have to find that one and post it here. It's not finished, but seeing other projects here might kick start me to finish it.
  7. Post your RVs here

    I love that kit! I have a couple of them.
  8. Has anyone built any fully detailed RVs, Campers, Camper vans or trailers? I've been contemplating building a fully equipped rig using an old Hess Training Van GMC Motorhome that I got on the 'bay years ago. And I need some inspiration. I'd like to see scratch builts, in progress, old kits - whatever you got! Has anybody else gone crazy and built up the GMC Motorhome as a detailed model? Or the MPC Open Road Camper. Or AMT Chevy van Mini Motorhome. Has anyone scratchbuilt a fifth wheeler, over the cab camper, or even a class 3 Winnebago? Whatever you've built - please post it here!
  9. Firetruck lime yellow paint

    "Yes fire marshall, we offer it in white. What color of white do you want? White, light white, dark white, neutral white, pure white, off white, candy white or clear white?" "And over here we have red...." Can't say that I've ever seen a BLACK fire truck! Either that or it's a super dark green. (might as well be black) Although Grabber Blue looks eye catching, I can't imagine it shouts "Fire, get out of the way!!!" Like red does.
  10. What truck is this?

    Yes, and send me the extra parts afterwards! LOL😄
  11. 65 Miller-Meteor Pontiac Ambulance?

    Bummer, only because I've wanted to use up the Pontiac bodies on this. The Caddy roof looks very similar to the Olds roof, maybe someday I'll find a junker Delta 88 body to make this. (Not likely). Oh well, I could try a station wagon limo with it.
  12. New Forum Rules

    Amen, to that!
  13. keep stopping at the end of my builds

    You guys are right! I saw somebody using one and he was using it like a spray gun. That's when it dawned on me, if I'm building everything else in miniature, then my paint jobs need to be in miniature too. Thanks for the advice. I'll get one soon and practice again. The weather's getting warmer anyway, now's the perfect time.
