Dan, I don't know if this would work or not, and they are only four hole wheels and not 5 hole like you are looking for, but maybe the wheels in the Monogram F350 dually might work? This is a pic of my 1:1, but it has the same wheels as the kit does.
I know I have used 1/32 semi wheels for 1/24th and 1/25th duallys and they look right, so it might be something to think about.
As Angel said, not noticeable at all, and here is the pic he was referring to from me in the other thread.
Also, here are a couple pics I took for a thread about the differences between 1/24 and 1/25 scales. The tires in the pics are on a 1/24 scale tractor, and the blue trailer is a 1/24 scale Italeri container and the silver colored trailer is AMT's 1/25 scale livestock trailer.
As you can see, there is not a very noticeable difference. Even over the length of trailers, I don't get all "Scale Nazi" over trailers, I was going to use the livestock trailer on this build, and now it has the Moebius 53' on it.
When I measured the tractor's frame in scale, it measured out to 38 feet in 1/24 scale, but it was as long as the 1/25 scale trailer, so there was actually 2 feet difference between the two scales, but it still "looks" right.
I spent a little more bench time tonight on hopefully my last day of an unwanted "vacation" thanks to the upper respiratory infection I've been fighting for a week now, and got all the little bits finished to finally get the frame into a roller form and almost ready for primer and paint.
I think I'm going to build some custom stack mounts, I'm not really happy with the kit pieces, and I'm going to see about getting another set that are longer and with elbows from Rhino's Custom Truck Parts so I don't have to piece these together with anything, but the size will stay 8" to let the big 16V71 Detroit breathe.
A mock up of the complete unit, without the reefer unit yet. The nose and doors will remain chrome, and the reefer unit, landing legs, and suspension will be all the same red I'm going to use for the cab and trailer body.
I couldn't resist taking a couple pics with this sitting alongside of its big brother.
I think if the KW had a hood, it would be as long as the Ford!
Thanks Dennis, I'm pretty sure that was what I used on the bullrack my custom Ford was originally going to pull, and had the same issues. The gloves are a good suggestion for the fingerprints, but the other reason I'm looking for something I can clear for a more durable finish is for dusting, especially while this and the Ford are still in progress. Anything I've tried to clean the roof for either trailer has destroyed the shine. It may be my only choice is wait until everything else on both trailers are finished and paint the roof and floor of both just before final assembly, and then quickly get a case built for both.
If you are talking about the F Series stepside "Ranger", it may be possible, but you would be looking at a needing to modify the frame and floorboards that are molded into the frame pieces as well if you are looking to build a regular cab dually. I have one of the duallys I'm converting to be my 1:1 1990 regular cab, and if it is just a regular cab you want, it's not that difficult to shorten the kit's cab. Here are some of the "surgery" pics from my conversion.
This and the pic above shows what I removed from the molded in floors from the frame, but you have to cut around the crossmember and fuel tank in the middle section.
This was the result of all the surgery, and the gap in between the bed and the cab is intentional. My truck was born as a chassis cab, and it has a 6 inch gap between the bed and the cab as a result of the previous owner putting the stock dually bed on it.
It all came out to look like the 1:1, and once I drag it off the back burner, the 4x4 conversion will begin.
If you look closely at the instructions above, the detached engine is also from the C1500 kits, it is the standard small block for the non 454SS trucks. As for the antilock brake box and shorter air intake hose, those are also for the 454SS. Everything in the opening post's pics are for AMT's Chevy C1500 trucks, the manual transmission equipped engine is the 350 and the automatic equipped is the 454, and the small sprue in the second pic with the 350 are actually all parts for the 454SS version.
