    I recently (just a few days ago...) discovered and subscribed to your YouTube channel.  I was very impressed by your reviews and builds.  I'm glad to know that you are on this Forum, as well!  This AT-AT kit has been added to my 'wish-list' because of your review.

    I consider myself to have a pretty fertile imagination but I'd have never thought this one up!  What an amazing concept!  I really like how you used the hood and fender parts to extend the back end... That's one of those subtle-ish design elements that COULD look like a factory original, if  you know what I mean...  I look forward to watching your progress on this one!

    Excellent!  Thank you, Bill!!!  My mind has been so fuzzed-out, recently, I didn't even think of figuring the volume, myself...  So, I am looking at around 3000 gallons for a straight truck built with half of the kit. Excellent!  The Mack R-model that I recently purchased, is the perfect chassis for it, then!  Thanks again, Ace!!!

    And I've had one or two kits where the tires are so warped, the wheel/tire assemblies were unbuildable...  But, I've found that a really good investment for these kits is the Moebius Big Rig  Wheel and Tire set.  These are the same wheels and tires that are used in their Lonestar kit.  And at around $18.00 a set, are a really good deal considering what you're getting.

    The DM series was designed for short-wheelbase straight trucks and urban-use tractors and had a shorter BBC (Bumper to back of cab) length than the R models, which caused the engine to intrude back into the cab so Mack offset the cab to allow for more room for the driver.  With the offset cab, the engine hump protruded back into the passengers footwell but left the drivers position unobstructed.

    SWEET!  That is looking really nice!  I had completely forgotten that this kit even existed.  Problem solved, though!  I just ordered one, after finding and scrolling through this post. Thanks for sharing!

    IMC/Lindberg Tanker Trailer Capacity Questions;
    Was this kit modeled after a specific 1:1 prototype?  And what would the capacity be, in gallons?  I'm currently building a straight truck milk tanker using the back-half of this kit and am wondering what the carrying capacity would be... I'm thinking somewhere around 2500 gallons, maybe 3000...  I'd like some other, more knowledgeable opinions, please.

    You certainly did that kit justice.  Looks great!  I've been looking really hard at their T kits... After seeing this, I think I'll be picking them up.

    This one got me smiling!  Awesome build! Very believable and a good looking combination, at that.

    Very cool!  I love the mural!

    I could still use them, yes.  Sorry about taking so long to check back but life got in the way of leisure, there, for a while...
  12. Wagoneer81 added a post in a topic What's next from Moebius - How about a 70 F-100 4x4 and a 65-66 F-100   

    Wishes DO come true!!!  I mentioned bugging Moebius about producing a '65-'66 truck kit, just a short time back, on a Facebook modeling forum. Now, Boom!  Man, I just can't quit giggling... After reading this thread, I even got my raggedy butt out of the recliner long enough to do a Happy Dance!  I LOVE the Bump Sides that Moebius has issued and am looking forward to seeing a '67 and '68 to round out my collection... And the 4x4... Way too cool!  I have one of each bumpside that has been issued, to date, and will be getting several more... NOW, I hear about the '65 and '66.... While I'm a big fan of the '67 to '72's, the '66 Ford is my Holy Grail of trucks! Great Googly Mooglies, but it is a great time to be a modeler AND an old-school Ford Truck Man!  Thank you, Moebius!  Keep up the great work!

    Wanted. ISO: Rear Duals from AMT Fire Engine
    I am looking for the rear axle assembly or just a complete set of 10x20 dual wheels and tires from any of the AMT Fire Truck kits. I'm working on a project that needs a tandem rear suspension and I only have the one rear axle. The whole assembly would be great but if unavailable, I could build an unpowered tag axle using the dual wheels/tires.  Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

    Very cool!  This has helped me make up my mind about getting this kit.  I'll be building one, in the near future!

    That's the plan, Mark! I have a rebuildable TranstarII that's going to end up fleet white with Cates Trucking markings. dad said that that white International was the roughest riding truck he had EVER driven... I'll do the R models once Round2 reissues the R685 kit.... Give it a year or so, I think we'll see it. I have a K-123 that a WIP that I think will get stripped and repainted black to model the one I don't have any pictures of... I can see, eventually, building each of these trucks. My way of saying, "Thanks Dad, for everything."
