    Now a vehicle like that might just get me to build a truck made in the last decade.....

    I gotta say. I bought one of these and the finish on the raw casting is so nice and smooth it will almost be a shame to paint it. It is as good as or better than the old Monogram kits where they polished the molds and the parts were ultra shiny. I can't say enough about how nice this piece is and well worth the price. I know how much RTV costs having done some casting of my own and the amount of RTV to make a mold for this must have been hundreds of dollars worth. And the mold must weigh a ton.
    Sugggestion for next project....the predecessor to this. the Streamliner.

    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.

    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
