    Pretty cool diorama.  I like the Minion!
  2. Jim B added a post in a topic Modern style semi steering wheel   

    The only one like that that I know of is in the LoneStar/ProStar kits from Moebius.  Would a car steering wheel work?
  3. Jim B added a post in a topic B.R.B.O. Diamond Reo C-1164DFL   

    Looking really nice!
  4. Jim B added a post in a topic Custom Ford single axle finished!   

    Nicely done.

    Nice base!
  6. Jim B added a post in a topic Monogram P-61   

    Can't say as I've ever seen a chrome P-61.  It's probably not very good for sneaking up on people at night, but it sure is interesting.

    Definitely has the 70's look to it.  Well done.
  8. Jim B added a post in a topic Ural 4320, 1:35 Trumpeter 01012 + Voyager PE35646   

    Very nicely done.  Is this shown in Russian service?
  9. Jim B added a post in a topic Engine Colors?   

    I've also found that Tamiya X12 Gold Leaf is a good match for the gold used be Mack, Tamiya X13 Metallic Blue is a good match for the blue that International used on their MaxxForce engines, Tamiya XF18 Medium Blue is a good match for the Detriot Diesel Series60 Blue (I have also heard that Humbrol #87 Matt Steel Gray is close), and Testors Model Masters Grun RLM 62 is a good match for the early Detroit Diesel Alpine Green.  I have heard, but cannot confirm, that Testors Red 1203 is a dead-on match for the International Red, while Testors Model Master Auto Lacquer 1969 Ford Metallic Acapulco Blue can be used for the International V800.

    It's so little!  Probably a close match for the Type 95 Chi Ha, though.  I don't think the M1 or M60 would bother with the main gun against the FT17/M1917.  I think they'd use the 50cal, or just push it out of the way.

    Working hard at hardly working?

    It would be interesting to see this parked next to a M-1 or M-60 & some figures for a size comparison.

    Nicely done.

    I am enjoying this build, and I think you are doing a great job on it.
    As far as the ship's boats go, I think they were stored with everything ready to go (oars, sails, masts, etc.); but I'm not 100% sure.  You could always make a canvas cover for them.
