      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

    For the drive shaft take the kit driveshaft and get a piece of either brass or aluminum tubing that it slides into. Cut the kit part in half and slide an end into each end of the tubing. Measure how long the shaft needs to be and cut the tubing so that the entire length if your part is what you need. This will include some of the kit part sticking out of either end of the tubing. glue the ends in the tubing and you have your drive shaft.

    I bought one of the vans. I've been wanting this in plastic or resin for a LONG time. I think this was pulled off of the die-cast that auto parts stores were selling not too long ago. He has a lot of great items and more cool ones coming.

    "2. The screens covered by a segmented bezel which fed air to the carb, located just behind the door handles on either side of the cab, are AWOL on the kit- this area is featureless on the kit cab. I'm guessing AMT did it to ease molding- break out the PE screen and Plastruct here."
     
    Even a decal would have been enough to please me...

    For years I have been trying to figure out how to make working Pilot-Ray driving lights in 1/25th scale. I'm thinking maybe watch parts will be helpful.

    Talked to them at the Buckeye Classic and the Derby City Shootout is no more. Not this year and never again per their club President.

    Someone on the Spotlight Hobbies Forum found this with a google search. Can be resized and printed in whatever size you might need.

    Cummins Engine Decal
    Did any of the AMT/MPC/ERTL truck kits have a Cummins decal on the decal sheet? I have installed a Cummins in a Ford Tilt-cab fire engine and I'd like to put the Cummins logo on the sides of the engine cover where I so often see it.
     
    Thanks

    I just noticed something funny about the AMT Ford C-600
    This truck, in real life, would ride like BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH. I just noticed that on the instruction sheets there are no rear shocks pictured or assembled to the frame. I think your cargo would be really shaken up without them.

    Beautiful rig. You'd be surprised but you just don't see these cabs around anywhere any more. They used to be everywhere and suddenly they disappeared. So sad.

    Ford Tilt-Cab Front Bumper
    I'm in need of a Ford Tilt-Cab front bumper. I am building a Tilt-Cab fire engine with an extended front bumper for a front suction intake and I need a second bumper/grille piece so that I can do it right. On these the grille is back in its usual place but the bumper is out on the ends of the extended frame rails and to do this right I need one to get the grille from and one to get the bumper from. These are so integral that in cutting them apart you'd have to destroy one to get the other part. So....anyone got one they aren't gonna/haven't used.
