    Looks nice with the trailer.  I like the air lines.

    Great looking Pete, Tom.  Well done.

    From what I've been able to find out, the Cat 3406C, Cummins N14, or Detroit Diesel Series60 would be appropriate.  The Detroit V8's & Caterpillar 3408 are too "old" for the Ford LTL9000.  Stick with the 3406.
    I'm not familiar with the transmission that's in the kit, but the "standard" transmission was a 9-speed direct.

    Interesting.
  5. Jim B added a post in a topic Baltimore Clipper 1825, Bowsprit rigging..   

    This is the kit I have:

    It's the Model Shipways New York Pilot Boat Phantom.  It's a solid hull kit, but I still cannot figure out how to proceed.  My biggest fear is putting a ton of time into it, but having it only be worthy of kindling.

    Really fantastic work.  I have a wooden ship kit in my stash, but I've been to intimidated to start it.  Very well done.

    Oh, tail lights are SOOO over rated!

    Thanks for  information.  I have no idea what a PCD is, but I'll look it up.

    Interesting.  I might need to look into this as I need something like these for a Ford F8.

    Looks good from my house.  Well done.

    Wow!  That's awesome.  Fantastic work.
  12. Jim B added a post in a topic Optimus prime   

    In the 2007 Transformers film, Optimus Prime was a Peterbilt 379.  However, in the 2014 Transformers: Age of Extinction, he was a 1973 Marmon cab-over then either a Western Star 5700 Custom or Western Star 4900 Phantom Custom depending on the source.

    Don't know if this will help: http://www.aerochief.com/
    The engine is just a standard Detroit Diesel 8V71 (I believe).

    Very nice.  I like it.  Did you use the Model Car Garage P/E set?
  15. Jim B added a post in a topic 1974 Dodge Bighorn - Done!!!   

    I'd say that's a job well done.
