      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

  3. trick my mixer added a post in a topic California Hauler 359 Peterbilt Stretch Help   

    Hi Jesse,
    I will give you my 2 cents worth on this topic and hopefully it will help.   Yes I have built several of these California haulers before... I have also built several of the  revell  Peterbilt 359 snap tites and they are easy to build with good detail. What I like to use for the stretch is use  pieces of original frame rails from the same kit. easy for me since I have plenty of those. I usually try to make the cut where there are no cross members involved and usually under the sleeper if you plan on using one. I have used some round sprue stock for the driveline  or you could use some round plastic tubing from local hobby shop in that size. What i would do is cut the u-joint ends off original driveline and put them on new driveline. Also as for covering the new lengthened area  I usually use some diamond plate from Don Mills or just use some plastic sheeting and cut to to size. Length and width. If I use diamond plate I will baremetal foil it and If I use regular flat plastic stock I sometimes paint it same color as  as the frame or what ever your choosing might be...Hope this helps...I am sure others have their own way of doing this, ... Some when they cut the  frame rails cut them at an angle on both ends,,,,I usually just cut them straight and together at the same time...Make sure you re-inforce the inside  and over lap the seems for added strenght...Good Luck...Here is a picture of my  "  Project 350 "

    Eat your heart out J.T. I got to see this model close up Sunday at our monthly model club meeting...It is all of that picture and more.
    The builder is our club president and as you can see detail is the name of the game here. Even I have not had a chance to see the trailers. Really looking forward to the finished project.
     I will talk him into posting more pics especially front ones.......
