      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

  1. hobby lobby

    Just stopped at the Bangor, ME store. Pretty picked over, grabbed another Lindberg 37 Ford kit and a bunch of paint. They still have the Porsche 914, Mazda RX-7, Datsun 280ZX, and the S&H Torino.
  2. hobby lobby

    Seabrook, NH store has lots of clearance items that have been mentioned earlier. Including the Gama Goat.
  3. Kom-Pak Trailer

    As I recall the boat is removable.
  4. Front axle question!

    My company has a batch of Cascadias that have air bags in addition to leaf springs on the front axle. Dump the air and the whole truck lowers. I believe Volvo also offered this as an option. I didn't notice that much of a handling difference.
  5. What do YOU use to store stuff in ?

    My "work space" is completely piled up with stuff ever since I moved it to my basement right before my son was born (January 2017). I have my main building supplies in a tackle box, paint in a Plano plastic organizer container for taking in the truck with me.

    I guess I need to find the older style grille to make my truck accurate! 😃

    I'm a dork for inline 6 engines and incorporate them whenever I can. 😊
  8. This past week I've noticed some Western Express trucks hauling Walmart trailers around here.

    No, this is an AMC 258ci, which was an optional engine in the later years.
  10. Where were you based out of, highway? I run strictly New England and only ever see Prime hauling for Walmart. Well, aside from Walmart's own trucks that is. There's a Walmart DC in Lewiston, ME that I drive by six times a week so lots of Walmart trucks coming and going.
  11. I never did end up getting the Moebius trailers so I don't know about the differences between them. In addition to those you mentioned, reefers have insulated doors that usually have a diamond pattern on them. Plus reefers have corrugated metal floors and dry vans have wood. And then you get into ducting... ☺

    One piece interior tub/chassis, no understood detail, spring/axle combo, integral roof; really decreases the parts count. I had to do a lot of digging to flesh out this engine compartment:
