    Revell truck kit questions
    AUTO HAULER- How well does this kit hold six autos? any extra bracing needed to support the weight of the models...I'am going to use six AMT snap Ford explorers...and how about replacing those softer tires with newer ones...as this is an older release of the trailer.                                                                                                                                                    
    PETE & KENWORTH WRECKERS- looks like big kits...any problems with assembly...just better take it slow and easy with these...and how about the tires in these kits too... KW is the old first release and PETE is the newer release.
    as always, your comments are welcome... and thanks builders....John

    Glue and Air compressor question ?
    GREETINGS builders,
    GLUE; what product could I use to de-bond old glue ?, just picked up a box of old glue bomb kits that still can be re-built. Something that would not harm the old plastic.
    AIR COMPRESSOR; what one is better ? the small metal one painted blue by paasche #D 500 -or- the mini air one in clear blue plastic by testors ?

    Your comments please, THANKS........ John

    As being a builder of emergency apparatus, I see in my future.....a new squad box ambulance, quick attack mini-pumper, walk around rescue, or how about a brush/grass fire rig.... but let's not stop there... we can also build a wrecker too!!! but wait there's more...take the open road camper, cut the old front / rear clips off, scratchbuild some newer extensions... and presto!!! a brand new class C motorhome.... GOTTA get at least two of these kits.

    Truck and Trailer question ?
    GREETINGS truck builders,
    I just picked up the older REVELL (ITALERI) Ford aero-max 120 big rig, how well does this go together ? any problems with assembly I should know about.
    Also have the ITALERI heavy tanker (BP gas) don't know if we would see that six wheel set up here in america, if I wanted to change that one, what suspension could I replace that one with.

    Hobby Room/Workbench questions
    GREETINGS, fellow builders,

    As I'am revamping my hobbyroom, I've placed WHITE pegboard on some walls and also on the walls around the workbench to reflect lighting better.
    LIGHTING; What do you like?, the hum and buzz of CFL bulbs or the LED ones that cost more, what gives more light.
    WORKBENCH; On the bench top, I placed a sheet of white paper and over layed that with a sheet of plexi-glass. Good choice or bad for the plexi ??. The bench will also have more lighting overhead.
    PEGBOARD; On walls now, so that I can hang parts, tools, clipboards etc, and I can stop digging through endless boxes of stuff to find what I need.

    Did I do good ?, what's your take on this, any comments are always welcomed if there's room for more improvment.

    THANKS!! John
