  1. Old Buckaroo added a post in a topic Motivation, wish I could find some.   

    I really dont know how any of you "fair weather climate" guys get anything done.  Summer for me is spending time with my Wife (she is a school teacher).  We like to travel and goof off as much as we can..  
    I still look at the forum here on a regular basis over morning coffee most of the time,  and follow all the great work and shenanigans.
    Soon as school goes back in session I find myself in the hobby room starting to clean up and organize the kits I had bought over the Summer.  Then I get the motivation to start building again.
    Clayton - Spend as much time as you can with your Wife and little one , the hobby will work its way back in to your routine !

    Top Notch work all the way around.  I keep going back and looking at the pictures as this Wrecker really stands out.

    That looks fantastic, I was curious on why you were looking for doors.
      That is a beast and I have always admired COE wreckers.  On the plus side you have the rest of a cab to double bunk a GMC or Astro !

    It is not much but it is all mine.

     
    Yes that fancy moving box to the right is my computer desk. Oh and that thing draped over the loveseat is my bear rug..

    This is one great looking truck !

    Growing up in Colorado - I started modeling HOn3 back when I was a teen and did so for 30 some years.  I disassembled my layout and sold everything off due to failing eyesight and not so steady hands.
    I did reinvest the proceeds into On30 stuff but have yet to do anything with it.

    Wow - That is one model I look forward to seeing !

    I took a vacation from work , spent a week in North Carolina with my wife and a week at home.
    Actually have had some time to work on this truck.  This has not been the easiest of assembling. This is an old kit and almost every piece was off the sprues and loose in the box and the directions are a little vague to say the least..  
    But hey, it makes things interesting.

     
    Thanks for looking in

    Terry - I am really happy to see this one back.  A little late to chime in but have you ever tried using thick foil embossed over your diamond tread with a q-tip to make pieces for what you just did ?
    I use to make roofing tin like that all the time for use on my model RR.

    Finding the new format was quite a surprise after being away on vacation.  The look is different but I am already use to it. My biggest obstacle to overcome is not hitting the "sign up" button when I go to log in
    This forum even with the new format surpasses "fsm" and "sa" a million times over.

    Sorry to hear that, I lost a lot of books that way many years back.
    You can send those kits out here to Montana - they will be dried up in just a few hrs.
  12. Old Buckaroo added a post in a topic Why is it.........................??   

    I have always feared change ,  revamping a format will not attract younger people.
    Young people have their own ideas and habits , model building is a hidden talent that only a handful of privileged people possess .
  13. Old Buckaroo added a post in a topic 1930 Mack AK Rigging truck, and AC dumper   

    It is almost a shame to assemble all this fine detail work.  I think this build would be very popular as a resin offering.
    Super all the way !
  14. Old Buckaroo added a post in a topic My pair of Peterbilt 377s   

    Both look fantastic !  Did you use decals for your headlights or paint them ?

    Actually the past week of being away.
