  2. So Glad they made it safe to Canada!!! Thanks so much for your order and trust in me!
  3. Hello Fellow Builders, Just wanted to introduce myself and let you know about the parts i produce for 1/24-1/25 scale truck models. I started production early this summer and have had great success in reproducing some of the hard to find detail parts we all wish came in our truck models from the factory. I design and test all parts i make on models that are available at stores and hobby shops everywhere so fitment is always great. I also pride myself on my quality of items and customer service if a problem does arise. Right now i have a eBay store and handle all my orders through PayPal so buyer protections and protocols are in place to make sure you have a pleasant buying experience. Also if you visit my store you will be able to see i have a 100 percent feedback score and have been a member since 1999. If you follow this link your will be able to visit store and see all items available. https://www.ebay.com/str/miniaredeluxe Thank You so much for your time and look forward to helping fit your great model truck project with scale quality unique parts such as Headache Racks, Trailer Detail Sets, Interior Detail Sets, and many more items to come!!
  4. Very Kool Build!! Coloring and Details are Tops!!!
  5. Hello everyone Progress has been a bit slow on the 359 been putting quite a bit of time into learning and setup of a new resin printer and new designs but I was able to take a few new beauty shots and have a lot of the final parts chromed and ready for final assembly. I have been working on a new Special Deluxe version of my opening door head rack and will most likely mount my prototype to this truck to show what final product will look like. I also have a few new special parts in the works to add just a bit more detail to the final build. Keep your eyes peeled this one’s almost ready to hit the open road!
  6. Thanks so much Brian really appreciate your support and can’t wait to see what truck you choose to put it on! I was able to step up to next level and order a resin setup and am very excited to see what I can design and produce. As always I am all ears when it comes to parts and accessories that everyone would like to see made! Thank you again and will watching out for your next build.
  7. In my view this is a very good Thread for so many reasons. When i read all posts i take away that craftmanship has many different layers and definitions to many people. My thoughts are not completely defined to just one and only one way of thinking on this subject but I always take in consideration that there are many different categories of how i will build certain type model kit and will always give each and every model its due attention and detail to the best of my abilities and knowledge. Meaning for instance if i am tackling a more costly kit i would be more likely to dedicate extra time and techniques that i am practiced and perfected at verses a kit that is cost effective and is easily found i will try new techniques and experiment. I think good craftmanship is learned by trial and error and is not just immediate. I had a conversation recently that was close to the mark but had to do with how everyone's eyes see and experience a different reality then the one you see. I have quite a few interactions with random people because one of the cars i have built and drive. It is a nostalgic hotrod with many flaws to my eyes but one interaction had me surprised and baffled. I was gassing the car up one day and a brand new BMW pulls alongside, a lovely dressed to the nines blonde says out the window "it's Beautiful" i was taken back how can this lady think that this car that has 93 years of dents and bruises mismatched and cobble together with old hotrod parts be beautiful? Through her eyes and perspective she see's something i do not see. She is viewing the car i see when it is complete and finished. As any builder, artist or maker of things your project or piece of art will never meet your expectation completely because you and only you will see its flaws but that is what should drive you for a new level of greatness and craftmanship on every piece you create using what success's or failures you had experienced on your past projects.
  8. Excellent Tip! Thanks for sharing. ?
  9. Nice Work!! Its going to be a beauty when finished i can tell! I have thought long and hard about buying this kit but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Still finishing the revell version and its taking a while because other 1:1 projects and printing product for customers is taking precedence. I saw you had mentioned no visor in that kit. Had the same deal in the revell kit as well i was able to rob out of the parts bin and i think mine was from the AMT/Ertl W900a kit. Fit was good. Keep up the good work defiantly watching this build!
  10. Thanks Defiantly Appreciate it. Just want to make sure i am doing things correctly.
  11. Artwork at its finest! Hats off to you sir!
