    Google/or any search for Divco Milk trucks....tons of pictures of stock n  modified ones.

    mostly the very chopped top...they sat higher...had no "chrome trim" on the sides...and they used heavier truck wheels.
  3. mike 51 added a post in a topic My take on the Revell 2015 Mustang snap kit   

    looks great..."correct" sized tires make quite a difference!
    .when are we gonna see this as a regular kit?  anybody heard anything?

    i like the wires n whitewalls
    do not like it on a rake.
    .low and level works far better!

    FYI
    The "bite by M and H" refers to a brand of drag slicks (M&H Racemaster)....that are NOT made by Goodyear.
    Nice racer otherwise...

    My health insurance company doesn't help much on a couple of my meds..
    I had a pre-existing condition which they accepted (as the law reguires), they just don't want to pay for the meds that treat it (which the law does NOT require)..
    but they were able to buy a competing insurance company for several billion dollars with their profits.....so it's working for them just fine I guess.

    My new Revell 29 Fords came with bubble wrap between the chrome trees that were enclosed in the standard plastic bags...nothing rubbing together.
    A very thoughtful approach,I've never seen that before.

    oh...yes you're probably right, I'm not really familar with the show/movie.

    ok..and Galaxie is doing too few to get the  volume "discount" price Moebius pays for the developement/production of their kits?
  10. mike 51 added a post in a topic 1969 Moebius ford pickup grille   

    definitely looks better...the transition from edge of headlight doors to lamp still needs smoothing it appears but maybe its just the contrast of the two colors?
    but the grille looks great and the headlight doors look like the right width now.
    yes it was kinda odd to mold the grille open but have no details at all behind it...just one of many things that make the design of the kit seem unfinished to me....

    They never had them,they only had the 71s.  I understand the run is over,but not sold out.   There is said to be a 70 shortbed coming but when is a ?.

    ".... that internet tough guy stuff don't work so well."
    All in a vain effort to impress complete strangers....  
  13. mike 51 added a post in a topic Revell '29A CHANNELED Hot Rod Roadster Quick Build Update #3 - Chassis and Interior completion, and photos of completed model...   

    Thanks for sharing again Tim...love the 46 'caps.  So I guess there's an easy 3rd version here too, a highboy using the model A frame? 
    I don't care for the channeling's effect on the proportions...your idea to move the radiator back might help some, but I think it would need to be chopped to return to the over the axle location.  
    Are those the largest of the 3 headlights?
  14. mike 51 added a post in a topic Galaxie Limited 1947 Chevy Coupe   

    It sure is "pricey" for what is essentially  a modified re-issue.  
    How can Moebius,as an example,do brand new kits for so much less?

    neat project!
