  1. Anyone know what truck it is,the later one or the early one with the small back window? I have a reissue,the red one on the box,its the later version,it even come with a sleeper. Harvey
  2. When you put the kit together,watch this area as it is tricky to get right,has to be the right height or the box wont come down or there will be a gap between the heat tube. Harvey
  3. Not sure but ithink it started out life a s a ford cabover,about a 69 vintage. harvey
  4. The bottom dump trailer looks like the trailer that is behind the IH transtar 2 on the box art?,but that was a ERTL kit so i dont think it was a possibility at that time?,would be neat to get the garbage truck body,have been hearing about it for years. Harvey
  5. If you put the part in where it is supposed to go,it doesnt look that bad?,AMT instructions were notorius for poor pictures.You need to be a mechanic to assemble them,just so you will have an idea as to what it is and where it goes.. Harvey
  6. another way to tell will be by the light blue plastic the 4270 kit was cast from,it is a very light blue,the engine assy is all blue,the tranny was black.I had this kit when they first came out in 73,it was the first ERTL kit i had. Harvey
  7. WOW,thought it was a real truck at first,simply amazing.Harvey
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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?
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. Wow, some of the outdoor pictures are really hard to tell from the real thing.Very impressive. Harvey
  14. 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
  15. 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.
