    Can you give us one more hint....?

    Good looking trailer. What did you use for the basis of the build, or is it completely scratch built?
  3. uncle potts added a post in a topic Transtar and Wilson pot.   

    That combo looks great. Love the old Wilson Trailer behind a cabover, never looks right behind the newer trucks or a conventional.  We really need a modern punch side Wilson.

    What an ugly piece of junk! Why didn't they add fins and a whale tail? It couldn't have hurt.

    My dad had a '66 Dodge Monaco 9 passenger wagon. The only thing I know about the motor was that it was a 383. He embarresed more than one young kid with his jacked up hot rods and loud exhaust with that thing.

    My grandson and me working on his model. He is almost ready to start building on his own.

    I don't have a suggestion for a name thats any better than what was already suggested. This however is a very amazing creative build, very well done.

    My wife would never go for this. She won't let my hobby out of its room.

    Nice start, and I really like the color choice. I've got a soft spot for these, my first car was a '63 Chevy.

    They probably double dog dared them....
  12. uncle potts added a post in a topic Current MCM   

    I know it can be upsetting when someone or something you're waiting for is late, it drives me crazy as well. However, some things are worth waiting for. My first granddaughter that is now two days late is one of them, MCM magazine is another. I personally don't subscribe, our postal service here sucks, however, I NEVER miss an issue. My LHS holds a copy for me so I don't miss an issue. If all we had was SA, which is a fine product on its own, this hobby would be missing a valuable resource.
    I agree that this magazine may be slanted to the personal interests of Gregg. But regardless of who was in charge this would probably be the case. If it was my baby, the articles in it would probably reflect my tastes as well, regardless of how hard we try to include something for everyone. Its just human nature.
    Regardless of how late it may be I'm personally going to wait. No one tells me how quickly, nor how often I have to finish my next model. And I'm not going to even ask someone who has the health problems that Gregg does how to run his magazine, which is his baby.
    Remember patience is a virtue, cultivating it will do us all some good.
    Now............back to the workbench....................

    Harry,

    I have always enjoyed watching your builds. The craftsmanship is inspiring. The way you take a model, and detail them, brings them to life. I've learned a number of things watching you build these scale works of art. This one is becoming my

    favorite. The craftsmanship you are putting into this wooden body is amazing. It's making me want to dig out the only 1/16 scale kit I have in my stash, a 1913 Model T Van, and build it. I've got far too many on the workbench now, so it will have to

    wait. I want to thank you for taking the time and effort to share your build process with us. We benefit so much for it, and these threads like this one are the reason many of us are here.

    Thanks again, Harry. And amazing job, keep up the good work.

    A '53 footer has somewhere in the range of about 6500 to 7000 rivets,..........just in case you wanted to know.
