    O-key, which of these books more interesting?

    Unfortunatelly - no Dodge trucks.
    O-key! Arrived "The Great American PickUp Trucks" book.

    Well it tells about all kinds of PickUps from 20-s to 80-s. It were not only Fords, Chevys and Dodges. Mack, International, Dimond T, Studebaker, Hudson, Reo - were PickUps of 40-s and 50-s too. High rolers and Low riders are shown here too, as stylish Terraplane bizare and little Crosley. Written in best tradicion of Motorbook. There are prices some old trucks costs at that time, beside other information.
    The only minus of this book that there are 3-4 photos of the same trucks from different racurs because most of them left in small number. But from other hand all phoptos are colored. Another minus just for me, that my favorite period (from 60-s to 80-s) partly presented by Toyota and Nissan, living empty gap in large amount of US trucks. That' s why I need Dodge truck book.

    The topic is old, but I think it is the best place to ask:
    Does anyone knows the best Dodge PickUp trucks book about photo history of these trucks and thair main features; with pictures for reference and inspiration? Time period: from 50-s to at least 2002.
    Im looking for something like "Ford Trucks chronicle" but about Dodge.
    Thanks in advance!

    Hello every one!
    I suggest to post here all the questiones and news about Truck boks.
    For example: does any one knows about "Ford F-Series: America's Pickup Truck" content? Is it al about PickUps, or Medium Duty F-series get in this book too?
     
    I have bought "Ford truck chronicle" by same author some time before and I like it!
    I Just try to decide which book to buy: "Ford F-Series: America's Pickup Truck" or "Ford Medium-Duty Trucks"  by Paul Mclaughlin + Ford Pickup Trucks by Steve Statham ?


    Thanks in advance

    Have found "Reflective Tape Regulations": "Also, the two segments should have a minimum of 12 inches in length plus or minus six inches. This would mean a range of six inches to eighteen inches. ....Besides the 2 colors, the reflective tape should only come in the following widths: 2 inches, 3 inches and 4 inches."
    So Microscale striping is 0,5mm narrower, than minimum. ...... BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH! I could print it my self with ink jet printer, but it mean I have to cover it with Liqued Tape, and even then, when I cut out the strip and put it in water - red edges will contact with water and bleed!
    Or may be I still should try Microscale? Nobody care about safety tape but me?

    Yes, they say the thikest stripes are 1/16" high (mean - 1,5 mm) and I guess each color about 6 mm long. Is it small?
    I haven't see many US trailers in Russia. Our trailers don't have safety strips.

    Does any one tried this?
    http://www.microscale.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=MD&Product_Code=48-452&Category_Code=STRIPES
    Can it suits to our scale?

    I tried to contact Line O Tape sales office, but unfortunatelly my mail can not be delivered. Is this site working?

    Thank you Richard. 
    I heared about this manufactorer before, but never tried. Is thair safety tape suit our 1/24 (1/25) scale?
    Main question is - how can I order it? Product list doesn't show up.

    Haven't found modern topic about Modeltrucking, so I ask here.
    Does Jerry have Red/White safety strip decal set for semi trailer sides? I need one for current project.
