  1. That’s a Hot Shot Truck. Hauls small loads that are priority like medicine.
  2. Cool! Happy to see those parts used on a great build!
  3. Beautiful! I used to build the real ones for over thirty years.
  4. I had some gray ABS from Plastruct I think it was and I couldn’t get superglue or epoxy to stick. It came apart easily. In all these years I’ve found there’s no need for any other type of plastic. I’ve been able to use styrene for everything I’ve ever needed.
  5. Awesome work!! I sure wish I had known you were building this! I mastered those exact, small, three spoke wheels that are on the trailer. Jamie Rahmoeller at moluminum.com sells them.
  6. There’s so many ways to do it with styrene? Why would you use ABS? That stuff is horrible, nothing wants to stick to it.
  7. 2/8/20 Update, I finally found the red one with the three wheeler! Just need the one with the go cart now!
  8. What I would do is, glue a tiny piece of flat styrene on the leaf springs, just in front of where the axle is supposed to sit, according to the instructions. Sand and blend it into the spring. What you’d be doing is lengthening the flat part of the spring so the axle can be moved forward.
  9. The wheels and tires in those Revell Kenworth and Pete kits are horrible!! As said above, swap them with a Moebius wheel and tire set. They’re more accurate, great quality and look so much better! Theres many other options out there as well, two holes, five holes, spoke wheels etc. a good place to find them is moluminum.com
  10. I’m not a fan of any of today’s trucks! They look like they all come from the same mold! The newest trucks I like are a 379 or 362 Pete, W900B or W900L Kenworth, etc.
  11. Is Plastic Dreams still in business? I can’t find any contact info for them on their website?
