    This is actually a display of the John Deere Triple Link Suspension system but has a nice engine so it counts to me. It was made for JD dealers to demonstrate the front axle and is made of diecast on a wood base in 1/16 scale.

    If you are asking about the one in the Falcon, it is 1/18, like the third photo from the top. The photo above that one is the same engine on a stand. 
    Thanks for sharing the link and the Model A engine. I had not seen that version before and having had a few 1:1 A's & T's I would sure like to find one.
     
    Thanks Mike, Looking at that again makes me want to dig my stash out and get started.

    That's a good one Danno.  I'm just getting started, can't find all of my photos.  I hope I didn't lose them in my computer crash
    Here are a few more that need built.

    Great job. They look factory made.

    Thanks Ray. I love doing these and it's easy to make some extra hobby money
    This a beverage truck made by London Toys and is about 3 in long.  The paint is Createx acrylic. Very easy to use, pretty hard to mess this stuff up.

     
    This one is Tootsietoy and is about 4 in long. I painted it with MM Lacquer Hugger orange and did not clear coat it. I just polished it with a automotive polish and it made it look more like the original paint.  Clear coat looks great but too glossy for old toys.

    Kevin, Looks great in the photo. Nice color.  I'm glad you're working through this, practice, practice, practice

    Looking good.  I think now the parking lights look too big. Are you going to make a mold of this when you're done?

    Was this kit ever sold as a Mack Superliner?  i have only seen it as Superliner.

    Fingers crossed
  10. AzTom added a post in a topic Has anyone used the Testors/Aztec paints?   

    I just posted this in the diecast section.  I tried this paint for the first time a few days ago and think it's the best acrylic ever. Went on smooth and covered well. I used  the Aztec airbrush with white nozzle and about 20 PSI.  Clear coated about an hour later. This is the Pearl Copper.

    Tootsietoy Paint Tests
    These are a few old diecast trucks and cars from my junk box that needed paint jobs.  I dig some of these out every now and then to test new paints or just practice on. Some I will keep in the collection, others I will sell at the antique mall for hobby money.
     They were all stripped and primed with self etching primer. 

    This is a Midgetoy Ford wrecker about 3 in long.  It's paint with Testors MM Guard red with a drop of hardener added. 

    Midgetoy 58 Corvette about 2-1/4 in long. Painted with Testors Aztec acrylics.  This is with out a doubt the best acrylic paint I have ever sprayed in an airbrush.

    Here we have both Corvettes, one Copper and the other Guard Red finished.

    Very nice, My first car was a black 56 VW.  Is this one black or dark green?

    Manny, knowing what you do to Franklin mint models, I was afraid to open this one when I saw Airstream camper. 
    I'm glad you found a scrap one, these are pricey.  I like what you did to this and will be perfect for a junk yard office.

    I have one of those here somewhere but couldn't find my photos.
