MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. Attended the IPMS show near Indianapolis over the weekend. Was shocked that my Freightliner was awarded 1st place in the Commercial vehicles class.
  2. I really prefer the look of Cabover trucks but someone gave me this one so I am going to give it a go. Looking for pics of what people have done with this kit for inspiration!
  3. I like what you have done so far. I had fun building this kit.
  4. Will trade for any Cabover Semi Truck kit. I just like cabovers better!
  5. I didnt take any pics as I made them but it was pretty simple. I used 1mm brass rod for the mounts, evergreen plastic strip and .015 aluminum rod for the main mirror along with mirror finish foil for the glass. Thank you
  6. I recently built one of these and I agree the directions leave something to be desired. But it does build up to a pretty good looking cabover once you get past that.
  7. Lots of nice touches, I am learning a lot from looking at everyone's builds.
  8. I recently built one of these AMT freightliners too so understand about the instructions. They seem to assume you already are knowledgeable about big trucks. Looks like you figured it out though!
  9. Just tried some myself. They worked fine over primer. I did use setting solution.
  10. Went to the MDA Show In Roanoke yesterday. Close but no cigar! Actually I was quite flattered as I thought there were some pretty awesome trucks there.
