    The wrecker body actually adds a great deal of strength to the frame, especially if you attach them before painting so you can get a good weld. Do your best to put the joints in the frame under the wrecker body and make the contact points really strong.

    Sometimes you can find the Can Do/Will Do wrecker body on ebay for a decent price, then all you need is the Kenworth kit of your choice and some Evergreen to stretch the chassis and a third axle.

    Best donor kit for Mack B model?
    With the sudden wealth of Mack kits available or soon to be which one would be the most accurate to use as a donor for a B model conversion? The DM600 arguably has the most detailed chassis but the frame is flared in the front and I don't know if that feature was available on the B models. The R685 and Cruiseliner both have straight frames but I believe the engine in the Cruiseliner is a later variant that was after B production ended.

    Well, that $125 I paid for one on ebay a couple years ago feels a bit worse now.

    The AMT 69 Daytona kit is a horrible dumpster fire of sadness. You could help it by adding the chassis from the 68 Roadrunner you posted but by the time you buy two kits you could get the really great Revell 69 Daytona. If you watch ebay for a few weeks the Johan 70 kits can be found for an acceptable price, especially for an open box one.

    I was 13 or 14 when Superunknown came out and it was immediately my favorite cd that I owned. I later found Temple of the Dog and even got to see Audioslave live in 2006 in think, Chris's music has been with me for most of my life. Today is a going to be a rough day, made sadder by the fact that there is some evidence that Chris might have taken his own life. I guess you don't write songs like that or sing like that without some inner demons to deal with. It's becoming quite depressing that all of my favorite bands are gone forever, I mean Layne, Scott, Kurt, Shannon, and now Chris. Can we get some bodyguards for Eddie Vedder please?

    The AMT Baldwin Motion 70 Camaro has some very nice Cragar rims that have wider rears for a good 70's look.

    If they have the 68 Coronet body couldn't they swap in the 68 Roadrunner/69 GTX chassis like they did with the 70 Coronet? It wouldn't be a new kit but would get the 68 back in circulation.

    Man, I am disappointed this doesn't have both sets of wheels and has those sad tires in it.

    The new Revell 71 Bronco and Moebius 72 F-100 both have great 302's with the stock stamped valve covers but neither have the script as far as I can tell.

    If I remember correctly you have to take a bit out of the windshield at the bottom of the vent windows because the MPC interior tub has a bump on each side where the ends of the dash rest, you can also round off the ends of the dash so you don't have to take so much out of the glass.

    I buy my chain at Michael's or Hobby Lobby in the jewelry section, they sell it in a few different sizes. Just be sure to get the kind with the links the correct shape.

    If someone who can still find them would pick me up one I'd appreciate it, they never made it to my usual sources in my area.

    Man I love those CL's, I guess I'm going to have to save my pennies for a resin one.

    The Fallout video game franchise takes place in an alternate future in which scientists of the 40's were able to harness nuclear power and make all of the wild atomic ideas of the 50's a reality. They have some very interesting ideas about what a nuclear car would look like.
