  1. Kalmar Ottawa Yard Tractor

    I used the product in the picture. I melted sprue over a candle under my fume hood.
  2. Kalmar Ottawa Yard Tractor

    Getting back to work now that winter is coming and the yard work has tapered off. Took the plunge and glued the suspension to the frame to get it up on its wheels. Found an engine in the parts box that may work but I'd like to identify the source and maybe find a shorter tranny if i could. Any ideas what engine this is? Tie rod is temporary, as my plastic one didn't work out, too flimsy. To be honest, the plastic frame and suspension parts are pretty fragile. Now I see why Charlie likes brass! Mocked up. Need to raise the cab and put some louvres on the hood (I'm thinking 0.030 quarter round strips, though lots of little pieces involved) and then if it looks okay sand to its final shape Bonus tip - found you can melt styrene into a silicone mold, though under the fume hood or die. First attempts, original part on the left.

    Another flawless build! Wish I had as much success with painting as you have! These kits are hard to find, and can be pricey, do you order through eBay or foreign sellers? Have you ever done one of their buses, they're pretty neat kits too?
  4. Mack DM600 Water Truck

    Great matchup, very well done. Nice job on the paint and weathering!
  5. Class 325 Chevy/Maxim fire truck

    I just noticed the raised area on the hood sides and the riveted front third, as you say, quite a neat detail that I would have overlooked. You certainly have a keen eye for detail! Nice work!
  6. Volvo EC360B 1/25 scale

    Wow, really great job! The construction is neatly done and the weathering is perfect, not too much. Overall, very realistic!
  7. Loadstar Brush Truck

    Great job, Charlie! Overall, it's really a very colourful subject, what with the contrast between the black and red, and then the (primarily)yellow accents provided by the stripes and hoses. Very impressive!
  8. Awesome construction work!That's a whole lot of plastic sheet to cut up and join with such precision, congratulations!
  9. Revell car transport trailer.

    Neat idea, great minds think alike! Still in progress here, don't let it get on the back burner like me I posted it to show one way to paint the rack - I kinda think there's too much blue if you do everything but the treadplate panels like I did, but dull silver for the whole trailer doesn't seem to look the best either!

    Finally figured how to attach the rear sliding door. Just mocked up here, the rear wall won't be glued in until I finish the interior, which is on a platform that just slides in from the back. The camera reveals all, doesn't it, LOL
  11. You're not expected to be there at 6 AM! (I may be late, LOL)
  12. Loadstar Brush Truck

    Neat work, I especially like the stripes and the contrast of the two-tone paint job. That ain't no $29.95 Earl Scheib special!

  14. Thank you for your ongoing support, Peter! We should call this our 'Hope It Don't Snow' show! (Not a show, though, more of a swap meet)
