  1. BIGTRUCK added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    62 Ford ..door handles shaved and custom front and rear glued on but I'll take it

    Original 63 Chevy.. complete
  2. BIGTRUCK added a post in a topic So I'm sitting on a stack of 63 Country Squies and 64 Colony Parks   

    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
  3. 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.
  5. 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..

    A very sad day indeed. ..Rest in peace friend.
  9. 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.

    67 Monza complete, never built. Im trying for all the Corvairs but may have to settle on some builders on the earlier ones

    You got that right brother 😆
  13. BIGTRUCK added a post in a topic Trades Gone Wrong   

    Ive traded with low post  or newer members here and the trade always went well. Now Im not saying it cant happen , there is no sure shot positive all deals will work out the way they were meant to be. One could only hope honesty plays a part in all trades.Behind the scenes trades happen all the time.. If your not sure PM others you notice trade alot and ask a question or two.

    Thank you Nick, great to run into you again at dupage..
  15. BIGTRUCK added a post in a topic Gremlins in model building (not AMC type).   

    " Other Mishaps I've been hit with is parts falling and disappearing  never to be found again or after the part has been replaced it shows back up. Anyone else have these Gremlins in their house????"
    All these parts that fall and go missing never to be seen again are tied in with with tools , such as sockets, if you drop a socket on the garage floor it rolls to a secret spot someplace on the property where it hit the ground. Thats as close as I can pinpoint those " floor lost objects".
