    MPC Dodge pickups
    I don't know where to ask this question.I recieved a MPC 1976 Fodge pickup full bed.Its was built once.its missing,grill,dtive train,wheels tires,engine,all suspension and transfer case..a few othet parts.my question is,does someone have the axles and leaf springs,front and rear for sale or in resin?
    And what are the differences in the 73-76 and after to 78?
    can I use parts from the Amt/ertl 1978 lil red express pickup for rear springs and rear axle and othet parts.
    thank you for any snd sll help......Chris

  6. Nova-ss added a post in a topic What kind of builder are you?   

    Well...I guess I'm middle of the road builder...not a collecter,but as been said...everything is going to be built or its parts for a build.I'm not a rivet counter,but I reseach and want it right.I'm a slow builder...I'm in no hurry.I don't post a whole lot cause I'm building.I've learned so much from builders here and the old (MTDG) on yahoo and I don't hold other builders to any standard,I guess thats why I like shows over contests.
    I love seeing others work,creativity, and thought in the subjects.
    I love it to look real and play its part.work trucks is what I'm into and it has to work.I scratch build all the time...so detail is a big part for me.I build snap kits just to see what I can make of it with whats there.
    Rebuilding models is a blast to me.try to make it what I see it could be.I let the model lead me in construction. 
    Scale modeling has to be challenging. from reseach,plans and construction. ..its all a blast to me...over all modeling has to be fun...other wise...why do it............thats me,.......Chris
