The cans seem as heavy as the older ones, the leak is always at a seam. I don't think your tubing is a "use thinner material to save a few cents" issue. If that were the case they would no longer fit inside each other. K&S makes 2 different wall thicknesses as well as a soft bendable tubing.
The MM cans leaking has been talked about a few times here. When I first had this issue around 2009, I had twenty plus can that leaked, some worse than the one posted here. I contacted Testors and they verified the date by the numbers on the bottom that they were three years old which is when I bought them. Testors told me that was beyond the recommended life of the paint. That said, they did replace the paint after I returned the leaking ones. I have since had more that leaked some but I don't know if they are the rest of my old cans or some of the new replacement cans. So, the leaking cans go back at least to 2006. I have used cans that have small leaks and had no issues. All of mine have been store in controlled environment since new. A asked this question the last time i saw this mentioned on here and don't think it got answered. Why is the stuff that leaks out clear and never the color?
Bill, Here is one of the 1/25 Olivers. They were also made as a shelf model, same but no inscription. I also have a White Oliver in red and a Minneapolis Moline on my fokti page. Just click on the photo.
Ok, we may be onto something here. All those weather balloons have been absorbing the moister out here in the west and became huge water balloons. They burst every now and then causing flooding in other parts of the world. Just say'in.
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.
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.
