    SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!!!
    Seriously, I'd be down for several of these.

    Elmer's makes several types of glue, the regular white glue for paper and kids things and the tan wood glue.

    Your paint scheme reminds me of the original King Kong monster truck.

    Wow, why so salty? I know they're available in resin, that doesn't change the fact that a plastic version would be nice. I have a lot of resin and will buy more but I'd still like to see mass produced versions of these kits.

    Again, a lot of the reissues are new to me so I'll continue to buy them for now, whether it causes that particular company to ever tool another new kit is largely out of my control. I will continue to support Moebius with my dollars and hopefully they will see fit to continue to produce more semi kits. Personally, I hope whatever they make is an older truck because the new trucks really don't interest me enough to buy large numbers of them. I would buy multiples of a CL9000, Mack B model, Mack R700, Pete 379, Pete 350, Needlenose Kenworth, Bullnose Kenworth, Crackerbox GMC, and several more where I would only buy one new Kenworth, Pete, or Freightliner.

    The DM800 tooling still exists, it was out as a Model King kit a few years ago.

    I've bought the new Moebius kits, not just big rigs but everything automotive they've done and all they need to do to get me to buy more semi kits is to put them out. Me buying reissues doesn't keep me from buying new kits if they're out there. I don't see how people buying reissued semi truck kits hurts the market, if anything it should show that there is a customer base for big truck kits in general. Round2 is not going to do anything new any time soon but buying their reissues, which are new to me as most haven't been out in my life time, will hopefully fund new kits in the future.

    I can't imagine why we wouldn't see the R model again, they seem to be going through every tooling they have in their inventory. I'd wager within the next few years we see every big truck they can cobble together trotted back out, Autocar, Transtar II, 2974, Cruiseliner, all of them.

    Most of the actual engine parts in that kit were cast from parts out of the Johan Boss Hoss Mustang drag car. That maybe be a little easier to come by cheaply in your are, just throw on the intake and aircleaner from the Revell Torino and you have a great looking stock Boss 429.

    Are you trying to kill me? I already weigh 400 pounds, too much of this and they'll have to roll me in the Walmart.

    I'm glad to see the Papa truck but it's makes the over $150 I spent on two of the blue AMT K100s without the ramp body a pretty bad investment.
  13. Fat Brian added a post in a topic Question about wreckers with sleepers   

    Okay, I didn't know a wrecker would tow a truck a distance that would require a sleeper. I had wondered if some of them had seating instead of beds since the towed vehicle might have more than one person in it.

    Question about wreckers with sleepers
    What is the sleeper used for on a wrecker? It doesn't seem like there would be much opportunity for sleeping in one since their trips are short and I can't imagine they get much use on a crash scene.

    I know they're a modern wheel and absolutely correct for what they are, I was just pointing out a way to get a period correct look for older trucks.
