      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    the easiest way to set up the ride hight for the torsion bar suspension is to first fit the shock absorbers to the chassis cross members and diffs. Then do the linkages, it's all rathar fiddly, but by doing it this way one has a reasonable chance of having all the drive wheels sitting evenely on the road

    Can't imagine it being the Torsion Bar version, they were only ever available on the first W Model, plus the cab over and the Challenger cement mixer. The torsion bar suspension was such a nightmare to construct that AMT pretty smartly dumped the idea and replaced it with the Hendrickson suspension.

    Good luck with that request, resin copy's would be about the only option. Not the easiest suspension to assemble,always had problems getting all the drive wheels to sit properly

    What color is the plastic on this re-release? Have got the original Aerodyne version in the dark grey plastic. Hopefully this is in white plastic this time.

  12. kevjoh added a post in a topic Bill Drennen 379 hood???   

    Glad I was able to help. I reckon the ideal kit for this 379 extended hood would be the Italeri Pete 378 # 3857 Long Hauler kit, it's got the same big sleeper as the Italeri 377 kit. There's a heap of info on Google about this kit.

    The Pete hood you're showing is the Clint Freeman 1/24th scale hood. MS-10 You'll notice that it's got the narrow hood strip which is the same as the 1/24th Italeri Pete 378 kit This hood is to convert the Italeri 378 to a 379. Just checked mine, bought it way back in 2002 for $35.
    The Bill Drennen 379 hood is 1/25th scale, it's to convert the Revell Pete 359 to a 379. It's got the wider hood hood strip the same as the Revell kit.

    From memory the only Superbird kit that came with all the factory decals was the Richard Petty version, kit # 85-2360, apparently Monogram got the rights to use the Road runner symbols, all to do with licencing from the movie studio.
