  1. I am in the market for semi roof top air deflectors. Like the one pictured above. I have no idea how hard they would be to recreate. I would be down for 5 or 6, price depending. Rog😁
  2. You might check O’Reillys, the one here has a great Duplicolor rack. Rog😁
  3. Long over due up-date!! The chassis are done except for the exhaust (the first time I have ever modified a wheel base). Cab modifications are done (the first tine I have ever done that). Two trailers done except for lights and decals. Now the rub, I'm going to have to pause on this project. The last several weeks have been a pain, major (unexpected) home and vehicle repairs have really spanked the wallet and I haven't had much bench or computer time.. I still need to get rivets for the cabs, more decal sets, another set of double trailers and various PE & resin items. I'm working as much OT as I can get but I'm probably a month or more away from feeling comfortable enough to start spending on the hobby again. I can still work on a few things, interiors, lights on the trailer, etc. So I will up-date as I can. Here are some pictures of what I have done. Thanks Rog😁
  4. I use the Varathane poly spray, satin and semigloss. I use it for frames and interiors and have had no issues I have’t used gloss on exterior panels so I can't,t say about that. Rog😁
  5. Three Inches Under https://www.threeinchesunder.com/search?q=Siren https://www.threeinchesunder.com/search?q=Light Rog😁
  6. https://www.ebay.com/itm/294279755025 https://www.hobbylinc.com/htm/sms/sms8055.htm Found these on a quick search, google can be your friend. Rog😁
  7. I have two of these: https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/tertial-work-lamp-with-led-bulb-dark-gray-00424985/ I have 100 watt equivalent LED bulbs in them, I just screwed the mounts to my desk. I also have an LED magnifier. I had everything up and running in less than 20 minutes. Rog😁
  8. https://cricut.com/en_us?sscid=31k6_r2o67&utm_campaign=2951323&utm_medium=affiliates&utm_source=shareasale.com& I know Hobby Lobby has them. 😁Rog
  9. Looks like a great project. We don’t have anything like that around here. Every thing here is the front discharge type. When you get around to mounting the cab and hood, I would very much appreciate it if you could give us a quick rundown on your method for mounting these aftermarket items. I have yet to delve into the resin cab conversions ( I intend to in the future ) and I really have no clue whereto start. Thanks Rog 😁
  10. My guess is it is a 20ft container. I used to work for a packaging co. It was used for some packaging, lotto tickets and wrapping paper. If I can recall it was .0005” (super thin), the rolls we got were 62” web width and had 150,000feet on them. We usually got 25 rolls per shipment, they were around 1,800 lbs per roll. Rog😁
  11. Sorry to here about the mishap. Substitutions are allowed. Rog😁
  12. Another question? Do you have to cut close to the rivets or will primer hide the edge of the carrier just fine? Thanks Rog😁
  13. Me too!!! It was probably warm enough today, but the wind was blowing 45. I need to get another set of doubles, I cut one up for the drom. Here is a mockup of the SD with one of the doubles. Thanks Rog😁
  14. Pinned topic above might help http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/73170-buying-my-first-airbrush-or-compressor-questions/ Rog😁
  15. Thanks for the info!! I have a bunch of other open kits, maybe they ended up in one of them. If not, I will probably just grab some I beam stock and make my own. Rog😁
  16. Back to not being able to paint. They are talking better weather mid-week, we will see!! Just been working on getting thing ready to paint. Here is a mock-up of the drom with trailer. Rog😁
  17. Here is a picture of the instructions with the parts indicated. Rog😁
  18. The instructions show two I beam frame rails that install in front of the rear bogie. My kit doesn’t have these pieces. Is this an oversight by the company or were these removed for the later issues of the kit? Thanks Rog😁
  19. Thank for the info! One of the videos I watched said to use the G scale 5(8 rivets. He said it was almost a perfect match for the kit rivets. Thanks agin. Rog😁
  20. Archer water slide rivets. Do they need a glossy surface, or can they be applied directly to the primer? I have done some research and it seems to be the best way to deal with the seam on the Freightliner COE. Thanks Rog😁
  21. Yes!! At least 2. In doing the research I have kind of fell in love with the company. I have the rest of the year so hard telling what will happen. I wish someone made the older freightliner shown in the pic from a previous post. Rog😁
