    Let's just say I had a bit of a mishap with the one I was doing up as a beater, and I'm really itching for a do-over. C'mon,, I'm sure one of you has one you purchased in one of those "what was I thinking" moments years ago, and now you're itching to get rid of it.  I've got plenty to trade.

    If you can find a set of 8-bolt (or what have you) wheels with similar holes, you can always cut off the existing lug nut/stud detail and add your own. That's what I did on these Scenes Unlimited dually wheels. I carefully cut the existing detail flush, then just glued them back on (minus two of course) in the appropriate pattern.
     
    And before you ask... no, I'm afraid these particular wheels are way too small in diameter for what you need.

    Nabbed an MPC Gravel Trailer today. The decals from it are already on the tractor which will end up towing it.

    People still use IH as short hand for International, even though the "harvester" part is long gone. Probably will forever.

    I have no idea if it's on the docket for a reissue as of right now, but given how Round 2 operates I'd not be surprised at all to see it reissued within a few years if not sooner. If you don't "need" the kit you could always wait it out for a reissue and pay about forty bucks. Also going by past Round 2 reissues, it *might* even come with a better decal sheet than previous versions. Barring all of that, as has been mentioned, just dig a little deeper for something more in your price range. You could even consider a started or incomplete kit if you don't mind a little tinkering.

    I was up to no good today....

    The decals were kind of a fluke. The adhesive underneath them clouded. I've had that happen before with mid '90's Revell-o-gram decals, but this time they didn't clear up after a couple of days like they usually do. If anything, the clouding got worse. I was pulling them off with masking tape when I thought "why not leave some of the graphic in place". So basically, that's how the distressed door graphics on this one happened.

    Interior on the Cummins powered truck is pretty much done. I had to modify the trans hump, and I nabbed some buckets from a Lexus LS 400.

    I also went with some distressed door graphics for the '71 beater- the "Ned and Ted's TV Repair" decals from the Revell '56 F-100.

    Now that Mr. Lucas no longer owns the Star Wars franchise, I wonder how long it will be before this movie is re-released with really badly integrated digital effects, and a scene where Greedo shoots first... or how long it will be before there's a prequel.

    Front end on that one is a Mustang II setup from a Beatnik Bandit II with modified spindles, and a just-short-of-unrealistically large step notch in the rear to give it the "aired out" look. The '69 kit coughed up the Type 4 hubcaps. The kit wheels had the "paddles" trimmed off to fit into the SATCO BFG wide whites.

    And then there's this...

    Yes, that's the Trailer Trash Kustomz Cummins 5.9 12-valve diesel, and yes, that will be the ride height...

    I took the Maisto 2010 F-150 XLT and "downgraded" it to a base-model XL. I used wheels and tires from the Revell Expedition SSV... incorrect for that application, but just the ticket here, and a scratchbuilt center bench. 

    The untouched factory example is on the left in this pic-

    Weird how this was an '82 annual with the correct grille, but the previous year the Cannonball van had been reissued with the weird "old/new" grille. Wonder if the insert for the correct grille has existed this whole time?
