  1. I've got a car parts collection I'd like to throw up for trade possibly! I won't split the lot for only a part or 2. It's either the full picture, or nothing at all. I can trade each picture separately, or you can take the whole collection. *There are 6 bodies missing in the first picture* I only collect/build 1/25 and 1/24 big rigs. So any truck kits/built ups/parts/etc is what I'm after. Any questions please message me. Thanks! 12 lots total, take one, a few, or all!
  2. Another superliner all done. Scratchbuilt lift axle with moebius rims and amt tires, replaced the kit italeri rear hubs, amt 5th wheel/platform, new mudflaps, and other little odds and ends!
  3. Ive been following this build since day 1. It's a fantastic work of art. I'm jealous at your skills. It came out great!
  4. I'd be interested in some as well. How do they look mocked up in a rim?
  5. No it wouldn't. I've paired a 1/24 trailer with a 1/25 truck and it looks great
  6. I'm overwhelmed with all this positive feedback, I really appreciate each comment. Thank you!! You should, it was a fantastic build. I've done 3 in the past with no issues. Well worth it.
  7. Send me a message, I'll check for you tomorrow before work.
  8. I don't think I have that exact piece, but I may have one from a diamond reo that would work?
  9. Thank you again everyone, I appreciate the comments and feedback! Great eye, I sure did do that!
  10. Looks fantastic, nice and simple. Great color too! One of my favorite kits to do. Also neat story with the 60 series. It's one of my favorite engines that they've produced. I'm glad to have worked on them myself too!
  11. I appreciate it, thank you! I had to swap out that 5th wheel assembly. I've never liked it, I'm glad I had a spare one to use on this build. Looks much better!
  12. That's a signature touch I try to add on as many builds as I can! Definitely a challenge to add, but worth it! Thank you guys😁
  13. This is the newer release Italeri branded AMT Mack Superliner. Swapped out the kit Cummins for a 12v71 Detroit from a Tyrone Malone Superboss kit. Has to modify the turbos and up pipes, as well as the front belt assembly and water pump to fit. Had to move the cab and cab mounts too. Added a 3d printed swan, modified bow tie visor, moebius super single rims and tires, AMT 5th wheel plate, and custom mudflaps. Also moved the fuel tanks back and added battery boxes. Overall, a very nice kit!
  14. Thank you everyone for the compliments! And yes, it took quite a while. Even though this is a newer release kit, there was a huge amount of flash, and warpage to deal with!
  15. I've built over 16 transtars, and have over 40 waiting to be built/rebuilt. These are fantastic kits, and the reissue is 10x better. You won't have any issues at all! Great color choice too
  16. Awesome, looks great. Glad I was able to be a part of this build!
  17. Finished this one tonight after work. Still might add a few small decals and lights along the way, but for now it's on the shelf. Added Moebius rims and tires, battery box mudflaps, Italeri Mack Superliner horns, 3D printed swan hood ornament, and decals from various AMT kits. Definitely was a challenge, but I love the way it looks!
  18. I've built all of them a few times. The worst of the bunch is the dm600. From tons of fitment issues, to horrible instructions, I would avoid it. The general is straight forward. Just a little challenging with the frame steps, and hood hinges. The diamond reo is easy. I haven't come across any major challenges with them yet!
  19. Looks fantastic! But one critique, the steps are on the wrong side of the cab. They need to be flipped!
  20. Happy I could help with this project, that visor looks great on there. Keep it up!
  21. Very very impressive work so far. Love it, can't wait to see the stripes on there too!
