    I mean, they need to come up with something that keeps them from making another account. Verification systems, etc.

    It sure is funny how so many of us know about it and i'm sure many have reported it but Ebay hasn't done anything about it!

    Yep, I mastered a more accurate three spoke wheel and Jamie Rahmoeller made better tire's for them. You can get them at http://www.moluminum.com

    Thanks guys, It's actually not finished yet. I just got a Detroit 671 engine and Fuller transmission to put in it, i'll be scratchbuilding the air start tank for behind the cab, redoing the fuel tanks to remove the seam and they'll get real metal tire chains hanging off them. The wheels will be changed to little two holes as well. Here's a pic of the Cummins HBDS-600 that I bought for another truck. (to show the size)

    I have a Sherline lathe and a booth as well. The booth will emit a little overspray and get on the lathe if close enough but the lathe creates a lot of very fine particles that would kill any paint work! I have mine in separate rooms.

    1/87 Freightliner build
    Did some 1/87 choppin today! Converted an Athearn Consolidated Freightways, single axle sleeper cab Freightliner into a shorter single axle day cab. Chopped the cab, air dam, interior and chassis, drilled out the tiny air horn and exhaust stack, relocated the fuel tanks, added a battery box, added detail to the interior and cut out the lower half of the engine and trans so I can install a tiny Detroit straight six with a tiny Roadranger transmission. (pics are in reverse order, it won't let me change it)

    Hi, i'm in search of this little 1/43 Newray van trailer from either the Peterbilt 380 set or the Mack B-61 set. I only need the trailer but will consider the whole set.
