    Parks by Parks makes trim rings.  The old AMT '32 for has baby moons.

    I ordered quite a few parts this Spring prior to seeing the 2015 health issue posts.  I received all of my parts I believe within 4-5 weeks.  Maybe they received so many orders they are trying to catch up similar to the Modelhaus?

    Highway, Accu-Pro was the name of the company.  I got mine way back in day.  Still need to finish my conversion.

    Another awesome build. Craig

    I had one of those MPC 4x4 Dodge kits. The tires were 1/20th scale street tires. The Dessert Dog Offroad tires on the Fall Guy pick up will fit on these rims. My only worry about sleeving them would be the centers would be too large. Craig

    Probably the same year Impala kit for a chassis and the Johan 70 442, AMT 69 442 or Hurst/Olds kits have big block Olds engines.

    I just received these exact pieces from them this week. Very nice product. Craig

    This is a snap tite Peterbilt by Revell and the transporter is by Revell of Germany. The truck is currently available, but I think the trailer is out of production, but they have been on e-bay. Craig

    I didn't paint the L8000, but I did paint the FORD lettering. I believe there is someone that's producing the lettering as a decal, but I can't recall who.

    Looks good with the chrome grill and rims. If you go with painted rims I'd find some 2 hole Budds. Craig

    I agree with everyone else. Your trucks always look fantastic. Did you have the cab copied for future use?

    You could probably add a small piece of red sprue from another kit to fill the space between the 68 lens and the 72 bucket. You can also get them from the Modelhaus. They have them for the 69 EC $2.50.
