  1. No updates for this month, but I'm still in as well. Been very busy with life issues.
  2. Very nice build! I like the colors and the Pete and tanker together. You did an outstanding job on this combo! Like the others, I want this combo too! Thanks for posting it!
  3. Just checking in for the month. Unfortunately I have no progress to report at this time. I hope to get ordering a few aftermarket parts for it next month. Jeff
  4. That's a nicely built truck. I like the color and the scratch-built toter body you put on it. Really cool!
  5. You have a really nice collection of trucks. I am enjoying thumbing through the posts looking at them!
  6. I like it too! This is a really cool looking truck and the white with blue frame is eye catching
  7. I like the big bunk COEs in your collection. Rick , you have a nice assortment of trucks! This group of your models is my favorite.
  8. I want to thank the following modelers for being true gentlemen and having taken a chance. I say this because we all know the horrors of being "taken" when your intent is to help by taking a chance to support someone and we don't even know the other person. A big "THANKS" to those that went out of their way to help me and give up some of their prized parts/kits and money in the process. Some guys didn't want anything in return. YOU GUYS ROCK!!! Here is my list: Old Buckaroo - Sean ZIL 111V - Paul GrumpyGrowly - Jonathan Purepmd - Mark Cappy625 - Tony Doobie - Dave AlanGarber - Alan Chu - Jesus Also thanks to those whom have contacted me but we could not make the deal. I really appreciate the replies to offer a hand!
  9. One more off the bench. This puts me closer to working on my Build Off rig.
  10. If those KWs had those stripes as decals, I don't think Hobby stores would have a hard time keeping those kits on the shelves! Nice artwork!
  11. This is a very nice build. So real...I like the flatbed on the truck with the hidden 5th wheel. My Grandfather had two of these trucks in his construction business and I used to ride in them with him. One had a dump box and the other was a stake bed. I like everything about it!
  12. This is one of the finest scratch built garbage trucks I have ever seen! Simply outstanding in everyway! This is a really an awesome model! I wish I had half our talent and eye for detail! The Ln series used as refuse trucks are still running in my neck of the woods.
  13. Nice job! I like the look without the visor! Looks like a truck an old farmer would use to haul his grain trailer once a month. That is a nice looking Kenworth!
  14. Wow, what a beautiful little truck! I like the mag wheels you added to this kit, nice touch! The whole truck is really nice!!!
  15. I like your truck! I followed the WIP build thread as well! I am in awe over the skill, craftsmanship and ingenuity you put into this build! Thanks for sharing! Jeff
  16. Thanks gentlemen on the words of encouragement! I put a little more thought into this...I will be using a 4300 kit which is no big difference but I will put a Cummins inline 6 in it and go with a single bunk. Shortly after I picked up the 9300 hood from CFC, he offered a second round of hoods which included a square "Texas" bumper and dual battery boxes. It was a very short run. I missed it and am hoping someday this kit comes around again. Stephen - The 9300 is a fine looking truck, I would have been happy to drive one too!
  17. My choice of truck came down to; an Ertl Transtar kit with a Clint Freeman hood conversion. I felt it was about time I dug in the stash of resin that has accumulated over the years and get it out there. I have been busy and was not thinking of joining in but the long time given to build may suit me in my involvement. So here is the start of my build thread for the Big Rig Build Off. I haven’t really browsed through the BRBO threads to see the ideas others have started for this community build off. When I have some time I'll have to look through them and get some inspiration and motivation for my build! I am still working on a couple other models at this time. I really don't have a final direction in my mind and how it will exactly turn out is still up in the air. I don’t even have a paint scheme in mind either. But it will be changed around from the box stock look. I am going to stretch the frame a couple scale feet but not too long just a owner/operator look to it with updated/aftermarket parts. If time permits the plan is to put a Fruehauf flatbed trailer behind it. Here is the start of my build.
  18. Great looking build Sean! Your KW is exceptional! The grill is a nice feature on your truck! These TV/movie trucks that are popping up on the board now are reminding me of my truck model bucket list. I have not built one yet, I should get going on one myself. Thanks for sharing!
  19. You picked a fine kit to build! Nice work on this cool kit. I like the paint work on the hood! Looks like you have a nice collection in the background too!
  20. This is a beautiful looking truck! I like the color, the fenders the stretch and all the chrome goodies! This is definitely an American truck from the 80s & 90s! Nice build!
  21. What a cool looking tanker truck! Nice job on getting the tanker on the back of that Pete! Jeff
  22. Wow! Jaw dropping beautiful! YOU have skills... Jeff
