    This is exactly the type of irrational unstable person that guns should be kept away from... sad that he wants to fly the flag of the oppressed. And how in the world is this even remotely truck related? Just curious. Seems better suited to being off topic or even general maybe. Maybe we need a section for the psycho crowd to post in?

  2. chris02719 added a post in a topic A more appropriate question than How many kits do you have?   

    You're 100% correct. Although the flip side to that would be "ignorance is bliss", but not totally sure I'd buy into that cliché.

    True, but then you can't see what they're saying behind your back....

    Is this going to be a reality tv show? Seems like there is enough overhyped drama for it to become one.

    What are the chances of these kits being reissued? We're the molds used for anything else or changed over the years? I'd love to see these reissued so I don't have to spend a small fortune to get one.

    Testors flat white being an enamel paint won't work on vinyl tires which might explain the poor coverage.

    If I were going to build one of these, I'd personally go with the gw trucks hood, as the aitm and plaskit hoods aren't as accurate. It also has the suspension parts to "modernize" the front end. Just my 2 cents
  9. chris02719 added a post in a topic how to make gas pump handles   

    A while ago I made a fuel transfer tank and pump for a pickup model and bought a cheap die cast of 2 gas pumps. You could try doing the same and possibly casting them. I forget the brand but they were really cheap and the handles were only held On with a rubber tube. Hope this helps some.

    He answered it I'm the post after the first one you sent.
  11. chris02719 added a post in a topic Does anyone know of a good kit source for these?   

    I found these in 1/50 scale. They're listed as 100 ton shackles. They don't list actual dimensions, and they are pricey.

    Awesome news
    So, life is moving on at a feverish pace. My wife and I just had an offer accepted on our first house! Perfect timing considering that we're expecting our first baby June 27th. I'm looking forward to having my own work space. Right now we're living in my inlaws' basement and while I can work on models here, I'm not supposed to paint anything. Even with my paint booth venting outside. The only downside to all this is that I won't be building anything for a little while between getting the house ready, moving, and the baby coming. I will say with certainty that I will continue to check in here and try to get back to actually building something as soon as I can.

    Yeah, I am pretty sure the e7 and e9 etc. Were gray, don't recall any modern green motors.
  15. chris02719 added a post in a topic Gosh, even a chrome crank.   

    I think both.
