  1. B.R.B.O. 2019 Mack DM600 #3

    I have decided to withdraw from the competition. Recently got interested in military heavy transportation and M-ATV's & I have more space at home for 1/35. Good luck to the rest of you - especially those DM600s. Steve
  2. eBay: contest for record highest asking price

  3. eBay: contest for record highest asking price

    Amazon has this Revell Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Plastic Model Kit for $47.95. Maybe the one on eBay is an earlier release.
  4. plumbing.....air lines and such

    I'm familiar with Spaulding - one of the only companies that Howard allows to sell his KFS stuff. I think they mark it up way too much.

    Shrink wrap still not removed, but working on the important stuff: suzie coils!
  6. plumbing.....air lines and such

    That looks perfect. Closest I could find was .039 PTFE wire, but it's stranded and I'm not sure yet if it will hold the coil.
  7. KFS Holmes Wrecker Body

    Howard sold the rights to the Holmes 750 to Moluminum Model Truck parts in Louisville, Ohio. Jamie says he is "hoping to get them into production in the next month or so". Stay tuned to https://www.facebook.com/groups/549796202068173/ and http://www.moluminum.com/
  8. Loadcraft LS3-40-S

    My brother-in-law drives a Volvo for Airgas. He says their tankers also have no landing gear - supposedly to save weight used to haul more product. If they ever drop a tanker they have to have a special dolly available to hold up the front end.
  9. AITM= great resin parts!

    They take PayPal now. From the web site: "PayPal;- We are able to accept PayPal. Contact us by e mail with your requirements (order parts list) & your full shipping address. We will work out your total including any export vat discount, shipping, charges & send you a reply. All PayPal orders are sent by Recorded or Tracked Air regardless of value. Bear in mind this can be expensive on small light orders."
  10. Michigan L190 Build

    This will be re-released this year if there is enough interest. From the KFS web site: "This is a 2019 re-release (providing there is sufficient demand) & is available by reservation by E MAIL ONLY. NO TIME WASTERS PLEASE"
  11. Does anyone make engine decals ?

    You could find something without a watermark here: https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1CAMWDF_enUS765US765&q=caterpillar+decals&tbm=isch&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwi95vGC-5jgAhUL0oMKHZS9BkoQsAR6BAgBEAE&biw=1920&bih=1009 I'm also looking for something for my AMT bulldozer.
  12. Paystar 5000 Long logger and pup trailer

    Nice build & details. I do believe that Australian truckers would scoff at the use of the term "Super Train" lol.
  13. I got to see this awesome paint job in person at a local model club meeting last Thursday evening.
  14. BRBO 2019 R Model Mack
