    Oh THAT Allison V-12. Forgot about that. It would be cool to see a pair of those on a pulling tractor.

    Jay Leno has a couple of cars with huge engines (aircraft size). They both use Allison transmissions, as used in Greyhound busses. What does an Allison transmission look like? Heck if I know. I'd guess it's the same for most of us. Use a trans from a big rig kit.
    Where are you getting a big Allison engine? FYI- Airfix makes a 1/24 P-51 with a Rolls-Royce Merlin that is not bad at all. You could get a couple of turbos off a larger scale kit and make an induction system like on pulling tractors or old hydroplanes.

    AMT '32 Ford Phantom Vickie. Unpainted, not Pro-Shop
    Looking for 1 or 2. I am not looking for the pre-painted version.
    Thanks. Lee

    I almost stepped on a rattlesnake tonight
    ...and after I changed my shorts, I got my phone and took a picture of it.

    Poor quality pic, but I wasn't about to get any closer
    There's a berm at the end of my street. I walked over it in my bare feet and heard a weird noise. It sounded like a spray can hissing, not like rattlesnakes sound on TV or in the movies. I knew there was no can there, so I hauled A out of there. I thought about getting my shotgun and shooting it, but I don't feel like telling the police why I fired a gun in the city, and besides, that snake has no malice.

  5. LDO added a post in a topic I would love to have Revell's tires in a parts pack!   

    Someone else would love to have the rest of that '29 or '32. 
    Get a Rat Roaster and we can work out a trade. I'd love to put AMT's '32 Phantom Vicky wheels and tires on it. Keep the SBC, too. I want a Ford mod motor in it. No joke. Let's make a deal.

    Also not Jungle Pam: approximately 7.3 billion other people.
  7. LDO added a post in a topic Luigi Colani’s 1970 Lamborghini Miura Le Mans Concept Car   

    Some guy posted that on the HAMB a while back. Said his buddy just bought it. Got a whole bunch of profane "How does that relate to traditional hot rods?" replies.
  8. LDO added a post in a topic The 60s must have been some WILD times they were   

    I once got a "junk yard" off ebay. One of the cars was a '68 Cadillac with the roof/glass off a Lancia Stratos. It was poorly done and not finished. I just threw it away.

    Nice job on a beautiful car.
  10. LDO added a post in a topic Amt LiL Roamin Chariot instrutions needed   

    People may think you no longer need it, since your subject line is in the past tense. It's also worded as a question...and doesn't state what instruction sheet.
  11. LDO added a post in a topic Best single year ever?   

    Mid '60s for sure. 1964 Cadillac Coupe Deville, 1965 Buick Riviera, 1965-66 Mustang fastback, 1966-67  Chevelle, GTO, and Nova, 1963-67 Corvette,1966 Galaxie 500...and that '67 Impala. Wow.
  12. LDO added a post in a topic no wings, no tracks & no guns   

    Nice work. For this meaning of the word, we say "tracks" instead of "chains". (Ich have in Deutschland gewohnnt vier jahre, als M1A1 panzer fahrer.
    I hope my German isn't too bad. I left 15 years ago.
  13. LDO added a post in a topic 1:1 Magnesium Parts..   

    Valve covers and intake manifolds on 4-cam Porsche 928s. Maybe SOHC 928s as well, but I'm not sure on that.
  14. LDO added a post in a topic Another '26 Model T Sedan   

    I'd go for spray can or air brush. Brush strokes will be roughly 25 times too big on this model.

    If she would prefer working with styrene, Tamiya offers he old Toyota "Hiace" van:
