      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

    They are very well done, especially the detail on the tires! It sucks though that they are one of the only modern aftermarket 8-lug wheels currently available (that I've found)! Hopefully Joseph makes some other styles eventually if these sell well enough.

    Just go to the website of the store of your choice and find it. The Walmart site shows you whether its in stock and you can search by location.

    Just go to the area with the cleaning supplies, it is just vinyl and tile floor finisher, here's what it looks like:

    I guess I'm not surprised that people don't know where it is, most probably wouldn't have used it at all since it seems to have gone by the wayside to keep your floors coated.

    I haven't had a chance to do much in the way of updating lately, been flipping between 3 different builds! I'll try to remember to post some pics tonight, but I did get the cab pretty much completed, with it currently sitting in primer. The bed required some square tube placed between the fenders and the inner box to straighten out the sides, and I will have to add the ribbing to the bottom as well. I also received a set of of wheels and tires from Joseph at Fireball Modelworks which will give it some height and some attitude! I tried to stay more stock in regards to the transmission, but I couldn't find any kits that have a manual that resembles an NV4500. I figure, since I don't plan on keeping this totally stock, I will simply use the kit transmission (TR-6060 which is similar to the T56) and say that it was swapped in for the 6th gear and better ratios (I have come across conversion kits to attach a transfer case, so it is a plausible swap).

    Looks good!

    Could you post up a pic? I'm interested to see how they look!

    I am intrigued by the 1/12 500F, though it all depends on the price. Since the truck kits seem to go for 30 bucks and up around here, I'm thinking probably high double digits.

    I suppose I can finally post something here! As you can see in the first post, I'll be building a 2000 Dodge Ram 2500. It will have the 8.0L V10, 5-speed manual, 4x4, and will be the extended cab-long bed configuration with the Sport trim package.
    The kits I'm using are the Revell Ram VTS, AMT Ram 2500, and yes, the Meng F350!

    The F350 will be providing the chassis and drivetrain (minus the engine/trans), the AMT kit will provide the cab extension, long box, tailights, and rear bumper, and the Revell kit will provide most of the rest of the parts.
    Here's the combined cab and the long bed, I still have to do some final work on the cab.

    Finally, here's the chassis in its current state. I had to remove 3/4" from the frame, as well as rearrange a few pieces to get it in a similar configuration to the Dodge chassis.

    The one thing I've always wondered is what is it with the redesigned AMT boxes in the early 2000s? To me at least, they made the kits look really bad compared to earlier boxart. An example:
    Dodge Ram snap kit
    Old box:

    Newer box:

    A bit of work done to mine so far, the engine is out of the Revell '99 Silverado and is mostly built. I had to cut out a bit of the inner fenderwells to fit the exhaust.

    I also got the chassis mostly together. Front suspension is stock, rear consists of stock shocks with leaf springs from Revell '99 Silverado, and axle from an Aoshima kit meant to resemble a Ford 9".

    I would guess that around 25% of the time, it's someone using it incorrectly to try and get a payout settlement from the company.

    If I recall correctly, a shooting brake is a 2-door wagon, and an estate is a 4-door wagon (though there may be something about the overall shape in there as well!)
    As for the topic, Wheeler Dealers is a great source of info on the different terms that they use in the UK. One that I haven't seen yet is "back box" which refers to the rear most muffler (usually aft of the rear wheels).
