    Textured Paint
      Has anyone used textured paint instead of flocking or embossing powder for carpet etc. on any of there models ?  It looks like it would work ok to me but I don't want  to buy any of it if it doesn't .  I see that KRYLON and RUSTOLEUM sell it in different colors and textures, and I am curious to find out if  anyone who used any of it liked it and also what  brand, texture, etc. they have used if they did. Thanks, JARRNO88

        That is just the kind of display case that I need.  If they are in my price range I  probably will end up getting one from Gary Wallace and drop the idea of building one.
    I also need to find out they cost.  Hopefully Gary is selling them  for what I can afford right now.

    Display Cases
      I  am now building  1:25  truck tractor and a trailer that I am going to paint as a matching set.  All my models that I have built in the past are being displayed in a curio cabinet so they will stay dust free . I want to store my rig in a case etc. to keep it spotless also, but my curio cabinet is way to narrow for it to fit  so I  need to find a wide case or something to display it in.  I have been looking  for plans or ideas to build a display case or thinking of putting a glass front on a wide bookcase that mounts to the wall or just sets on the floor but I can't seem to find anything at all.  I  need  a case that is about 48" w , at least 6" d, and somewhere around 8" to 10" h .  Does anyone have any ideas or plans etc. or know where I can purchase what I am looking for ?   Thanks,

            Thanks everyone.  I  found loads of photos on  Google .  I just need to spend a little time looking at the photos and decide how much detail I want to add to the engine when I build it.  I  already decided  to paint the engine in ACRYLIC  so I ordered a bottle of  MODEL MASTER   " GRUN RLM 62".  A couple of people said it is a good color to paint Detroit engines with.  Thanks again, JARRNO88

    Detailing DETROIT 8V71 engine in California Hauler
      I am getting ready to build a AMT PETERBILT  California Hauler and have been surfing the web looking for information on detailing the 8V71 model kit engine but I have not found anything .  There is plenty of info about detailing the CAT 3406, NTC CUMMINS and the 92 series Detroit  but that is all that I have found.  Does anyone  know  where I can find any articles, info etc.  about detailing the 8V71 ?

      I have a bottle of ZAP MEDIUM that I have been using for a little over 2 years now and it works fine.  Since it was brand new I have kept the bottle in the refrigerator and the only thing that I need to do now and then is clean off the buildup from around the lid area.

    MODIDIFY ENGINE IN AMT 866 CALIFORNIA HAULER
     Has anyone modified the 871 DETROIT in the model kit to a 871t ?   It would be really nice building the kit with with a larger turbocharged engine in it.   I was just curious to find out if the engine would fit ok with the turbo and other modifications.

  10. JARRNO88 added a post in a topic How long do ya'll take   

       It takes me along time to complete a model.  I have semi truck tractors in the building stage right now and have been working on them both for about 2 years.  I would like to complete them faster but during the summer time I get involved in  many repair prodjects etc. around the house and barely even touch them at all. I can't wait for wintertime so I can get back to building again. I also have 2 other semi truck models all planned out with all the paint etc. already purchaced for them and a lot of photos and notes completed for all the detailing and modifications that I will be doing on them but I won't start building them untill I have the builds in progress completed.

  11. JARRNO88 added a post in a topic AMT Wrecker , need PICS and Info   

      A couple of years ago I built one of the AMT PETE wreckers and I found some information out about the wrecker and wrecker body on "TIMS TRUCKS" website.  He has a little bit of info about them and some photos of the AMT wreckers that he had built.  I looked and the photos etc. are still on his site.  Tim says that the wrecker is a HEINZ Big Stick Wrecker and the wrecker body was made by "SOUTH UNION BODY WORKS",  If you search around a bit through his website you will find it. (I put the wrecker unit on and AMT R 600 MACK)  JARRNO88

     I JUST WANTED TO LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT I STRAGHTENED OUT THE PROBLEM WITH THE REVELL SNAP KIT FENDERS FOULING OUT AGAINST THE FRONT BUMPER ON MY AMT PETERBILT 359.  I REALLY LIKE ALL THE DETAIL THAT THE REVELL FENDERS HAVE AND I DID NOT WANT REMAKE THE HOOD HINGES SO I SET THE HOOD UP TO LIFT OFF AND ON.  I JUST CUT A NOTCH ON TOP OF THE CAVITY WHERE THE HOOD HINGE PINS GO INTO SO THE HOOD CAN BE LIFTED OFF AND ON.  I FIGURED I THAT I WOULD NEVER BE DISPLAYING THE MODEL WITH THE HOOD TILTED OPEN VERY MUCH  SO  THE DETAIL ON THE THE FENDERS ETC. WAS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE HOOD TILTING.  JARRNO88
