    I posted this here in early Aug. I have not been back to see if they have reset the toy dept.

    Bill,  Those Olivers are my favorite. You know Scale Models made the one you have in 1/25 also. 
    I like the tow truck. Would like to see a WIP here on that one. 
     
    Here's one I did several years ago. This on is 1/34. The bed is First Gear and the truck is SpecCast.

    I would be all over that one.  I have most all the HW61 trucks in 1/16 but they are just too big next to the 1/18 cars.

    Another First Gear Metro van in 1/25 with opening side and rear doors.

    This is like the Mack Roadrunner mentioned. First Gear in 1/25 scale with opening hood and doors.

    Dodge van by First Gear in 1/25 scale. 

     
    You can click on the photos to go to my fotki page and see more photos of these trucks.

    Marc, You could be correct.  
    Marx toys made vehicles for 40 plus years that were close to the real cars, trucks and tractors but far enough off to avoid licensing.   The Ertl Co. did not renew the Mack license in the late 90's and just change the grill bars and took the name off to keep making the 1/64 diecast truck. 
    I think I have seen Superliner used in other trades, I'm thinking it was a pickup bed liner for awhile.

    That's pretty wild Ray, I like it.

    Great start.  I like the hinged engine covers.

    Sorry,  I followed the link above  http://www.missinglinkrc.com/   and it has a Gallery. On that site it also locks up when you click Feedback and FAQ.   I thought they should expand also, probably a glitch.

    I just had the same issue as JTalmage.  Also if you click on the Gallery the Home page won't even work, you are stuck on the Gallery page.  On the Kits page I could click on the item and get a larger photo and description, on the Parts page none of the items would expand.  I was able to them to the cart though.

    What scale?
  12. AzTom added a post in a topic Moline Front Axle from Brass   

    Thanks,  I wanted to keep this one as close to original as I could.  I'm sure I have some MM's with Wheatland fenders packed away. 
  13. AzTom added a post in a topic MH Pony 1/43 Tractor Kit   

    Thanks.  The barn was made by Ohio Art. It is tin but only 8 in wide.  The JD and Ford tractors are Ertl 1/43.

    Welcome Nate.
    My kind of cars.

    So, it that the issue, the paint hardened up in the bottom of the bottle?  Mine settled to the bottom and would not shake up but did stir up rather easily to thicken it up and cover well.
