  1. VOLVO F7 Toter Truck for Mobile-homes

    WOW,thought it was a real truck at first,simply amazing.Harvey
  2. chrysler was experimenting with turbines back then,around 64-65 they had a fleet of cars they gave to the public to test for them,didnt work too well,they didnt make it to production..it is a strange picture,looks to be in a warehouse or loading dock of some sort.Harveyb
  3. 2019 Round2 Truck Kit Releases

    anyone know anything about this one,it is advertised on a local hobby shop website,says ford C-600 with the hostess dcals, truck is all wrong for a C-600 has tandem rear wheels and looks like a newer conventional truck.. http://www.greathobbies.com/productinfo/?prod_id=AMT1139
  4. 1978 Dodge Power Wagon

    I think the warlock kit had those spoke wheels,i had one about 40 years ago,it was black on the box,the wheels were a gold colored plastic? There used to be a lot of different dodge truck kits back then,all seemed to have the stepside box too?
  5. Mack DM600

    To me it seems like all the parts that are chrome on the AMT kits are parts that would have been made from aluminum?,I do agree there is way too much chrome,but i always hated to paint over it,anyone else feel the same. Harvey
  6. Looking for nice roof-mounted airhorns

    The horns that come in the DM600 and DM800 mack trucks are the nicest ones i have seen,all the other ones seem to have the sink in marks in them,the mack ones are not capped and look better in my opinion. Harvey
  7. MB Eurocab 1424 Volume Transporter

    Wow, some of the outdoor pictures are really hard to tell from the real thing.Very impressive. Harvey
  8. Dumb question #1

    When i was younger,about 35 years ago?, i used to heat the end of the metal axle with a match,and when it was still hot i would press it in to the brake drum,it worked pretty good,the heat softened the plastic enough for it to slide in easy,and it would stay and the axle,wouldnt slide off.,dont heat it to red hot,just very warm,after you have it in the rear end,heat the other end the same,be careful not to melt the rear end?. give it a try it really works. Harvey
  9. Marmon COE Interior

    Another thing to take into account is that the Marmons were a custom built truck aimed at the owner operator market,they were hand built to order,if you wanted a pink truck with a lime green interior they would build it for you.the sky was the limit on them.You cant go wrong no matter what color you use. Harvey
  10. TAT L-700 7-8 trailer done

    Cool little kit,one of my favorites.The motor is a 361 dodge,it is part of the big block family,same as the 440 383 bunch every one loves,the distributor on that will go at the front f the motor,sticks out at a 45 degree angle on the right front corner.I always thought it would be cool to stuff a hemi in one of them. Harvey
  11. Truck Kits You've Scored Recently

    What does it look like in the box,would like to see it?.Looks like a neat old time tractor. Harvey
  12. International Sightliner

    Wow simply amazing. very nice work indeed. Harvey
  13. the model companies parts are also all a bit different,revell is not the same scale as amt and etc.The boxes are the same from 55-66,but a revell box will not be exactly the same as a AMT box,myself i wouldnt worry about the minute differences,when they are that small no one is going to be able to tell anyway? Harvey
  14. Freightliner COE Questions

    Frieightliner was big on the fact that every truck was custom built to the owners specs,they always had ads in the magazines promoting just that.Coming on to the end of the cabover era they werent really a fleet truck,IH Ford and Dodge were the real cheapy ones then,frieghtlier was a step up from them,KW and peterbilt were the top of the line then,Mack was not at the bottom but between a IH and a frieghtliner.At least thats how i remember it. Harvey
  15. Freightliner COE Questions

    That old truck looks like its been ridden hard and put away wet?,there are some good shots for details you normally dont see,it has stack towers very similar to the kit ones,wouldnt be hard to replicate that.It has the small emblem on the grille top,it is a pointed type,not the rectangle one in the kit.The cab in the kit is an oddball cab,they had a very limited run of the cab steps,was a one year only?.I have never seen one in person that is the same cab with those type of steps.There were some pictures on here of the real one that had those steps.
