AMT made several Rangers XLT in the range of 1993-1996, in both the standard and Splash variants. One of the Splash variants would be good, but you would need to modify/recreate the 99 grille and hood. I think the wheels were available in a AMT Ranger or Explorer kit, too.
Very cool. I was in 1976-1992, permanently attached to Greenling (614), Birmingham (695) and Finback (670). I also rode Batfish (681), Tinosa (606), and Sunfish (649) for various lengths of time. I was an STS. Best job I ever had.
My favorite is Testors Model Master Liquid Cement for Plastic Models (stock number 8872). It comes in a home plate shaped container with a very thin application tube. You can put the cement right where you want it in the amount you want, and it won't spill. It is fairly slow drying without a strong odor. It is supposed to be MEK based and suitable for ABS parts like Plastruct, too. It's all I've used for years, and have been quite happy with it.
I like it - looks good. At first, I thought it needs a red vinyl top. Silver with a maroon/red top was a pretty popular combination back then. I'm glad you changed it. How did you lower the suspension, and by how much? I'm working on a non-S&H version myself. It won't be stock, though. Still working out the details.
Depends on how much scratchbuilding you want to do. It's a typical diecast insert - no real detail much lower than the head. No block/oil pan/transmission assembly, and only a suggestion of the manifolds. It's fairly well detailed for a diecast, but I would think about all you could use would be the head/valve cover and air cleaner.
You're welcome. It's a shame; I don't think Edge is quite ready for prime time. I like it a lot, but it doesn't have all, or even most, of the functionality of the more established browsers. Some sites seem to work much better with Edge, others work much worse. I hope upgrades come soon for Edge.
Yes, I have had the same issue with two or three threads recently; the Gran Torino thread was the first, and then a couple of others. I'll get a message that says Edge was trying to load the page several times, and couldn't so it gave up. It usually happens on certain pages; page 13 of the Torino thread was fine, page 14 never loaded, page 15 loaded fine for a few replies then it started acting the same way. I was using Edge on Windows 10. When I use IE 11, everything is fine. I can see all the pages I couldn't see in Edge.
