      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    Looks really nice; very well done.  Hope to see it in Fulton.
      I've seen his trucks running through Chittenango before, although it's usually the Aerodyne.

    It's only been almost 4 years.  That is a quickie build!

    Wonder if the Autocar will have Coca-Cola livery.  It would be pretty ridiculous if it did.

    Were all Loadstars gas powered?  I'm not that familiar with them?  Would this truck be a competitor to the Ford L-Series?

    Thanks, Brian.  Having issues with Testors Model Masters Turn Signal Amber.  It's really thin & yellow-ish; and just doesn't look right.

    Interesting.  Didn't get the Autocar tractor the last few times around.  Maybe I'll pick one up this time.

    Excellent looking Loadstar, Charlie.

    You know what I mean.  The TSA should be orange-ish (amber, if you will), but this is sparkly yellow.  Not even close to amber.  As I stated in my original post, the new TSA is lifting & mixing with the base coat of paint; but an orange base coat might just solve the issue.  I'll give that a try (off the model) as well.

    Thanks for the info, guys.  I'll keep looking for the orange.
    Art, that just might work; but I'll try it off the model first!

    Testors Turn Signal Amber Metallic
    I recently had to pick up a new bottle of Testors Turn Signal Amber, and I must say that it is very disappointing!  First of all, it's very yellow & pale compared to the old bottle that I had.  And second, it lifts up & mixes with the base silver that I had put down first.  Has anyone else seen this with the Turn Signal Amber?

    Thanks, Dave.  I's definitely not a contest winner, but I like how it's coming together.

    I think I'm closing in on done.  Maybe.
     

  15. Jim B added a post in a topic Testors Spray Can seeping, anyone else have this happen?   

    Never seen this before!  I'll have to keep an eye out for that.  I will day that I usually only get one use out of Testors Gloss Black spray can.  Once I go back for the second coat, the nozzle is so clogged that the can is useless.  Needless to say, I don't use Testors Gloss Black any more.
