    It all depends on the condition, this one is still factory sealed and lets just say I paid around the price of a current issue kit for it!

    Thank you Mark!!
  3. highway added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    This is what the mailman brought to me yesterday, wins from a live auction group I'm in on Facebook, and all of the older kits in the front are all still factory sealed originals. The Type K Sportwagon is one of my "Holy Grail" kits!

    Actually, if Pierre was referring to this kit

    or the newer wrecker version, this is way before the Aeromax came to be and could be anywhere from a late 70s to 80s era truck before electronic engines. 
    As Brian mentioned earlier, a glider could use any type of power unit you would wish to put under the hood Pierre, as I have toyed around with a few different possibilities for mine.

    Cat 3406 from the Revell Pete 359 snaps

    Or for the wild and crazy, the Detroit 12V71T from the AMT Super Boss!

    You're welcome! The Papa Truck also is good for a custom look for a tractor too. I used a spare fifth wheel on this one for a custom I'm building.

    I just recently picked up the dually version, as well as a few other goodies!

    Honestly in my opinion Jeff, I would use the "Papa Truck" if you want to build a K100 wrecker since it already has a stretched frame for the hauler bed. 
  8. highway added a post in a topic Highway thru Hell   


    If you have Netflix, they have "Highway Thru Hell" and another similar Discovery Canada show called "Heavy Rescue: 401" there. The Weather Channel carried the show through season 4, but they have never carried it past that, the only way I got to see the 5th season was thanks to Netflix. I did just check, Netflix does not have any of the season 6 episodes yet, they may have to wait until the season ends to carry them. 
  9. highway added a post in a topic General Lee decals?   

    If you have one of the old Revell Pro Modeler editions of the 69 Charger, the one with the photo of a real car painted yellow on the box, that kit has a flag and "0", "1", and "2" decals on the decal sheet. I tried uploading a scan, but for some reason the pic doesn't want to upload. 
     
  10. highway added a post in a topic Moebius Trailers   

    I hope this isn't true either, and if so it is a very dumb move on Moebius' part in my opinion! It seems as if everyone here has at least one of each style and probably more than that. I know personally I have 3 of each, and if this is true I'm going to go scarf up all of the at least 8 to 10 more I know are sitting on shelves at various shops in my area! 
    As for more Intertrashinals, if Moebius is not finished in the Class 8 market I would rather see more modern equipment from Freightliner, Peterbilt, and Kenworth instead. Don't get me wrong, the Lonestar is a nice truck and the Prostar was a no brainer since it shares mostly everything but the hood with the Lonestar, but the only one of the two I bought was the Lonestar. The Prostar never appealed to me mainly because I don't build fleet style trucks unless it is something I have actually driven and the only reason I would like to see a Freightliner Cascadia to build my current fleet ride. 
  11. highway added a post in a topic 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8   

    Thanks Marty, and especially with a Hemi Orange Mopar!  Even though I bleed Ford Blue, I've always loved the Mopar High Impact colors and I have two of the AMT Challenger kits that will get High Impact colors as well. 

    Thank you guys!

    2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8
    This was a too long on the back burner build that finally hit the finished column after being started about 7 years ago. The paint is Testor's Custom Lacquer System Hemi Orange. I had a few issues with parts fitting, mainly the headlight lenses (which my Carpet Monster feasted on one and the reason for the tinted headlights and taillight) and obviously there is something keeping the hood from fitting properly.

  13. highway added a post in a topic Inches to scale conversion help needed   

    Other than the great help most have already given you Kerry, there is one addition no one mentioned. Though the measurement that you needed was already in inches, just in case you would need to find out what something measured in feet would be, don't forget to convert it to inches first for the measurement. A good example would be making a 48' trailer in 1/25th scale and this is how I find out the measurement. 
    48 feet X 12 = 576 inches
    Then just follow the others advice for what it would be in scale. 
    576 divided by 25 = 23.04 inches in scale.

    I checked that out, and the instructions are the same style as what is in the KW and also seen another from the same seller. I would say mine was very well bought compared to the prices of those two!

    Thanks Mark!
    I never had seen it either Mike. I'm not really sure, but seeing as how it is a 1/28th scale (the reason I got the Testors trailer to go with it) and definitely a Japanese kit with instructions mostly in Japanese and the early Japanese kit features like an option to motorize it, I would guess it may be an IMAI original. It also has the options to light it as well. 
    Thanks for pointing out the gun rack in the Chevy, I honestly didn't even notice that, I just wanted a 4x4 Stepside again!
