  1. Finished both of these this week. Built specifically by request by my wife. The pickup is a 1929 Model A all metal Hubley kit I had for years. The bed will be filled with seasonal themed objects. White pearl is one of her favorite colors. No. 1 is Chrysler's Sub-lime Green. So I bought the white pearl paint at Hanger 18 Hobbies in Raleigh NC and did up an Escalade from my unbuilt stock.
  2. Nice build. What paint did you use for the blue?
  3. Since there are no locating holes for the cab trim except for the door handles, using a gel type super glue will alleviate much angst when attaching the parts, especially the mirrors. .
  4. The tractor was coated with Future floor finish hence the shine.
  5. Grod.. I tried for the workingman look, minimal chrome. The grass is leftover from my model railroad supplies.
  6. From WIP section. Other than the usual 1970's fitment issues, not to hard of a build.
  7. Used elastic thread from Hobby Lobby to use as cable for the two bunks. Additional benefit is the stakes can move and hold the lowered position.
  8. Trailer in this one too. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-m&ei=mwHKXf24Osbn_Qac4Kn4Cw&q=amt+1960+corvair&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwi98rf4uePlAhXGc98KHRxwCr8Q7Al6BAgKEA8&biw=360&bih=560#imgrc=tmFk0UOQutEq8M%3A
  9. The trailer also came in the 1960 Corvair kit. https://www.google.com/search?q=amt+haul-it+trailer&client=firefox-b-1-m&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiHk-uXuOPlAhXu01kKHZa6D4cQ_AUICSgE&biw=360&bih=560#imgrc=JsotBblHDga9jM%3A
  10. How about a reissue of the rental trailer and hitch that came with the original kit?
  11. Rear assembly done. Had to drill out inner wheel to get the brake drum to fit flush.
  12. Clayton, yes, I think that's how the kit is designed. Decided to use the stock wheels/tires. Slight hiccup, the Uniroyals that came with the tractor have an inside diameter that is too large, the tires won't lock onto the dually rims but worked on the front rims. Tried the Goodyears from the trailer and they fit the duallies. The Uniroyals from the tractor fit the trailer rims, problem solved.
  13. tbill, Thx for the heads up. I'll mock it up before finalizing. Warren D, will check it out.
