      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

    Wow, Dan! You did an excellent job with that! I like the one piece body and rear hatch. I've always wanted to narrow the rear and upsize the rear tires to fit the power of the Hemi.

    I have been hunting this one for a long, long time. I finally got a good e-bay price on one.

    The box showed up today. Marked FRAGILE - good. Looks like a smaller box surrounded by packing - good. Pick up the smaller box - the model drops out the open end wrapped in a plastic grocery bag. Parts follow. Poop. Broken axel, driving lights and nerf bars. The seller was doing so well. He just failed to wrap the model before putting in a 6-sided inner box (instead of an open ended box).
    So much for putting this one straight on the shelf. I'll have a little more repair to do. I knew it was missing one exhaust trumpet, but I also have the make the rear end cover and headlight lenses.

    I know the risks of buying built models; I'm still thrilled have to have it. It will be fairly easy too take apart and restore.

    Wow Chris, That is just spot on perfect. I am so glad you take your time with this. It's worth it.

    Great work overall. The grill and dash are my favorite parts. I would display this one on a mirror for sure.

    That screw drive vehicle needs some custom exploration. Way Cool!
    Mr. Snake, The Tarantula would be called Reentry and it would have either an Orange or While paint with a entering the atmosphere flame job.
    Here is a Lil' Coffin truck. Brad Leisure also had the same idea, but he went with a fleetside. Sorry, I don't have a pic of his art.

    I remember that one, Pete. I saw it at a model show and asked you about it. If I remember right , you did it once then redid it. Excellent styling and super clean execution. That one will always be a classic.
    If you want to change platforms, try some of Ira Dunham's space hot rods. You would have to find the thread.

    Its a 51 chevy fastback crossed with a 956 Porsche... And in need of a refresh.

    I like this thread. I am always looking for something different in both model cars and 1:1 cars. Rat Rods had their run, but that look quickly got old for me. Every once in a while I see some cool ideas like Bill's car above. One of my favorite tends - along the lines of road cars turned street cars - are old rods and muscle cars turned road racers like the Jet Hot duce and the Rear engine 37 Ford.

    Thanks for the heads up. I see them. Not sure what the problem is.

    Hmm. I'm trying to think. Did they have berings then? I saw some at the exhibit too, but they were very large. 
     
    Here is a link to the differential. I'm not sure if it answers the question as to "Why?"

    It's been a year and a half since this project got tucked away for school, and new career and a house remodel. It's back on the bench now and here is where I am at.
    Today I finished the bracing on the inside of the bed. It's pretty intricate. I still need to add the mounting brackets.

    I also got a start on the valve cover. I couldn't find any replicas out there. I learned from the crew here on the Truckers page that they are a one year only item. At this point I have no way to make uppercase/lowercase lettering, so I will have to settle for the all uppercase ones that I have. Hopefully, I can produce one and cut a deal with a resin caster to make a set.

    Thanks for looking.
    Time to grade papers.

    One good thing about being an "older" modeler...
    its that you sometimes forget what about some of the items you have collected.
    I recently was able to unpack my complete stash of kits and get my bench fired up again.
    While I was looking for a old 40 ford body I remembered I had stashed in a box , I found a galloping Ghost II rails, some report decals for other projects, and the roof someone gave me to try on a custom Nova project I had stopped on many years ago. When i went to check the roof on the Nova (a pretty good start) I also found the beginnings of one my wilder projects.
