    None that I know of.
    If you want to do the Bandag Bandit and don't want to wait you have to rely on ebay or other places like that to get one...but they are expensive.
    The Papa Truck transporter is the next to follow and was announced to be released sometime this fall, and Round 2 will most likely do both the Bandag Bandit and Hideout truck transporter too if everything goes well, maybe sometime next year or so

    The Super Boss Is supposed to come out this month and it has two decal options, both are for the Super Boss race truck  one is for the first Thermo King version and one for the later Bandag version and AMT originally did both versions.

    But you can get decals for the Bandag Bandit and Hideout Truck here http://www.modeltruckin.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=2_143_22
    Keep in mind that the Super Boss and Bandag Bandit kits are different allthough they are based on the same tooling, the Bandit has a different hood with pitchfork top scoop, side scoops and custom headlights, the twin turbo setup is different, the exhausts are different, the rear wing and rear tail lights and panel are also different.
    So they look similar but they are very different if you look closely.

    I think it's a bit fun that most of the US made model cars made has manual transmissions since manuals are and has been quite rare in the American traffic over the years since the 50's, and there aren't many that can drive a "stick" over there.

    Your new engines looks a lot better than the Camaro ones...small block engines are quite a lot smaller that the big blocks and wouldn't have done this build justice.

    They are supposed to come out soon.
    The AMT Super Boss race truck was announced to come out this month and the Papa Truck transporter this fall if everything goes as planned for Round 2, the Bandag Bandit race truck and the Hideout Truck transporter should be the next to come out after that.

    Is it the CRC-273?
    It's a new product and I haven't used it so I don't know how it goes together and how it fits...but Slixx doesn't cast resin stuff, most of the resin parts they carry are done by Competition Resins in Upland,CA. and they might be able to answer ypur question.
  9. Force added a post in a topic 1/25 Flathead recommendation?   

    The 1949-53 8BA/8CM flatheads has two belts, the inner belt goes from the crank pulley to the left water pump, up to the generator and back down to the crank pulley, the outer belt goes from the crank pulley to the right water pump, up to the fan and back down to the crank pulley, the fan is lower on the 49-53 engines than the 1938-48 59AB and the 1932-38 21 stud V8 flathead and they had different belt configurations.
    Over the years Ford have had both two, three and four bladed fans mounted at different hights and locations on the flatheads.
    So it's not that weird.

    Very interesting, this I'm gonna follow as I plan to do a NASCAR Daytona myself in the future.
  11. Force added a post in a topic Billy the Kid Stepp Pro Stock 'Cuda   

    The Pro Stock class was all new in 1970 and the cars basically were Super Stock cars with more liberal engine rules wich meant you could use whatever engine you wanted as long as it was a corporate one and supe it up a lot more, it had to be naturaly aspirated and use carburetors.
    So they didn't use subframe connectors wich are a couple of square tubes connecting the rear and front subframes together for rigidity,  it was a later development.
    But soon after in the mid 70's the Pro Stock racers went over to tube chassis in their race cars and they don't flex much.

    Yes, but you can't hotlink photos to forums and other places with a free account at Fotki, but it's fine with PB, you have a traffic and storage limit tho', but not if you pay.
  14. Force added a post in a topic Post your "Snap" kits.   

    The now Revell 1:25 snap kits was first released back in 1982 under the Monogram brand as Snap Tite models.

    The Unilite "Small Window" cab California Hauler Peterbilt 359 was appearently AMT's first semi truck model kit and it was released in 1969, it was replaced by a later 1100 series cab mostly all new version around 1973 and a kit based on the original issue from 1969 has never been reissued since 1971-72 until now.
  15. Force added a post in a topic Peterbilt 359 Day Cab...Metal Parts!!   

    The fenders in both the first AMT Unilite small window cab and the later 1100 series cab Peterbilt 359 kits has allways been too short so they needs to be extended.
