    It was worth the drive through 2 hrs of heavy traffic last night to pick up a Revell Bill Signs Peterbilt and a Revell Kenworth Aerodyne Cabover !

    That should have said "probuilt"

    I have seen prices go way beyond stupid on Ebay, but I think for some it can be an addiction to win that auction at all costs.  As for "prebuilt" you ever see what some "professional contractors" try to pass off when doing home renos.

    Sorry to hear you have to pack up your hobby area.  I've been there and done that.  Perhaps you will have an extra rubber maid tote that you can put this baby into until after you settle into your new place.  You put a lot into this build and others that you are working on so if you decide not to pack it I'm sure it will go to a good home.

    Thanks for the heads up Chris.  Stuff like this ruins the hobby for everyone.

    Longshot Mack Cruiseliner Part needed
    I'm looking for the white curved plastic head light bracket part #140 for the AMT Mack Cruiseliner. Its the part that the chrome headlight bezel fits onto. Will buy or trade for the part. Any help greatly appreciated.

    I had that same kit as a kid and once it was all covered in dust I thought I would use a bathroom spray foam to help wash it clean and after the foam dissolved it looked just like your picture.  I can't remember the brand of spray foam cleaner but its probably taken off the market now for being too hazardous LOL

    Great save on the paint.  Its always good to try a new masking tape.  Sometimes it will be your new favourite and other times it will just be something to avoid.

    I like the way you changed the stance, it makes a world of difference.  Nice work on the visor too.

    Try Plaskit.  Daniel cast the original Unimog tires and even cast a modified one which is wider.  I don't believe he cast the Unimog rims but he should have rims that fit all tires that he casts.

    Thanks guys.  This was an original built up that I restored and I am happy to see that it was reissued.  So many variations you can build with this kit.

    I used the Rex Mixer body and spliced in the longer Mack DM800 rails to my DM 600

    Just did another awesome trade with MR Mopar Doug Spencer. Awesome guy to deal with, lightning fast shipping and great communication.
  14. doogie7046 added a post in a topic AMT Ford L-Series Tire Size?   

    I bought several of the Coke version Louisville kits all factory sealed and they all had the 11.00 X 20 inch Goodyear tires. Some of the older versions like the Ryder or Pops Produce came with the smaller 10.00 X 20 Goodyear tires. Those 11.00 X 20 tires were originally from MPC and when ERTL took over the moulds for the MPC trucks they started using that same 11.00 X 20 tire in their kits. When AMT became AMT/ERTL those tires found their way into some of the AMT Kits like the Coke version of the Louisville, GMC General, Mack R Model, etc. that previously under the AMT brand only had the 10.00 X 20 tires but the later reissues of those same kits saw the larger tire. I prefer the fit of the 11.00 X 20 tires on the rears as you had mentioned as they fit without leaving gaps.

    Its good you saved those kits. The plastic won't go bad so he can just take his time building them. Having your son help build them will make for some great Father/son time. Its a shame that there are a few bad apples in every bunch but you just have to learn to ignore them and reflect on all the postive comments coming from the group.
