MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. I was in the area last year and attended this show. Lots of nice stuff to see and a great swap meet.
  2. Thank you everyone for all the comments. I am already thinking about my next build.
  3. Picked up and started on one of the AMT Tobias modified kits. Whenever I build a kit I have not done before I build a box stock version to "learn" the kit and I am glad I did on this one. Definitely not a kit for beginners!
  4. I always seem to find a few things that need some attention after I finish a build but until I do I am calling this one done. Built straight out of the box. I must say this kit went together very well, everything seemed to fit like it was supposed to and no surprises. Thanks for looking
  5. Those are some 1st class builds
  6. The Jungle Jim, Gunfighter, and Sandy Elliot cars were models that I started over ten years ago and finished this year when I took up the hobby again. Thanks for looking
  7. Picked the colors and got a good start on the cab. Deciding on what decals to use and then on to clear coat.
  8. I like it, I think my next truck build will be some kind of Ford
  9. I am working on the AMT International Harvester Transtar cabover kit as my first semi truck build. I am no expert but I always thought the Cabover design was to shorten the length of the tractor so longer trailers could be used before deregulation when total length was limited. This kit seems to have a very long wheelbase. The distance between the fuel tanks and rear tires seems very long to me. I imagine they were offered in various wheelbases for different applications but why wouldnt they just use a conventional cab on a wheelbase this long? Is the kit correct? Thanks
  10. Decided to do the tanks in Tamiya Aluminum. Got the interior done and am working on the smokestacks now. This kit really goes together well.

  12. Decided to go with an aluminum silver for the tanks, painted them last night. Should have the frame done today then start the interior.
