      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    I wouldn't mind buying a few kits and building most of these.  I threw in the non flatfender trucks because they may be easier for the first truck.  But easy is not alwayz the best lol.

    Been wanting to do a kustom G506 pickup and never thought of using that cab.  Thanks for the idea...

    Yes.  You are on the right track.  All trucks built during the Second World War were Civilian cab and chassis with rugged front clips. All companies did this and coleman generally built the front axle kits to make them 4x4 or 6x6.  Check out OLIVEDRAB.com for more info and pics on them.  http://www.the-blueprints.com/blueprints/cars/ has a front rear and side views in one of their pics.  Should help with the front clip.

    Pre-1960 Foreign and US spec trucks. 1/24 or 25
     Just wanted to get a list of kits still available or discontinued.  Resin...plastic or hell die cast.
    Going through a kick of designing hotrod trucks and came across some sweet antiques I would love to build.  Scammells and Leylands.  Even domestic US trucks.  Basically I would like a comprehensive list of any truck or cab to build a 1:1 truck that was produced before 1960 in scale.  Hows about we even throw together a list of donor kits and parts and pieces you guys have found that work.  I love classic trucks and am sure other people would love this list.  Pics are welcome.

    A few new pieces of truck art for inspiration...
    So.  We got what I call a "new" K425 Bullnose KW.  I based the nose off a UPS truck and the newer Aussie Kenworth.
    1948 Federal Conventional with reeferbox decorated in my favorite candy.  Lol.
    1950 Chevy Cannonball rollaway for my shop when I build it.  Haulng a model TT with a Allison Short block.
    1950 Chevy Cannonball with polished aluminum Camper body.
    1950 Chevy Cannonball wrecker for my shop when I build it.
    1948 Pete crewcab 4x4.
    All except the Federal took about an hour.

    I like it.  I got an International I rebuilt that my dad mad had done back in the 70's.  Factory paint scheme using Brandy wine and Pearl white.  Painted some chrome cause it was flaking.  It's on here somewhere.
