  1. BIGTRUCK added a post in a topic Bad Trader Alert!   

    These are the kind of things that ended open trading for me and I open traded alot. I still trade but its a PM to a person if I'm looking for something or someone needs something I will PM them, or I get PMs from others looking for items...mine is not a fool proof system but it all starts with simple honesty.

    A friend of mine was sending a bunch of resin bumpers so I tossed in a few resin front and rear pieces myself. They came in yesterday and the items looked outstanding, great work George...

    I would love to see a post started just on the odd, unusual , resin builds you dont always see. I think that would be something we all understand
  9. BIGTRUCK added a post in a topic Is this typical ?   

    Most of his items are pretty thick and need to be thin walled and trimmed for things to fit but I enjoy building J/F stuff like this PT Cruiser panel . You cant really force fit resin , it will crack or break....if you do ruin it and its not fixable your not out of big bucks,,

    This was just a back half of a small 30s 40s truck box that was super thick and top heavy,I but I changed a few things and had to lengthen the 41 Chevy frame..took some time but its different

    VERY thick

    Then I guess Im part of the general public and not in the high end buyer area. Maybe a high end guy like Bernie Madoff could use one hes got alot of time on his hands and high end people are honest right?. Maybe Im taking it wrong but again it may have been said wrong.
  11. BIGTRUCK added a post in a topic Giving up the hobby, again.   

    Ive taken many breaks from the hobby all due to my job. Driving across the country left little or no time for building. My problem was I never stopped buying kits😆 Im still driving but after almost 2 years of being a local drver I can say I built probably 1 a month sometimes 1 every 3 months. Now I try to only chase down kits from the 60s or early 70s and go to as many swap meets as I can plus hang here with you guys...Good luck whatever road you choose Ray but I hope its with us..Ken

    The box art looks like the old "Sizzler" kit from the 60s.

    I enjoy the older kit builds, the driver completes the look. Looking great so far..

  15. BIGTRUCK added a post in a topic Your package went where?   

    Out bound and inbound pakages to Vince in Pa always take the same amount of time to me in the west suburbs of Chicago..2 to 3 days Priority mail, now Missouri to me in Illinois always goes thru St.Louis at least 2 times then back south before it arrives by me, sometimes 6 or 7 days priority mail.
