  1. I had a Yodel Fury (taxi I think) many years ago. Probably packed up in my parents house somewhere still. I remember it being a very enjoyable build that looked great in the end. This one will be over the top. I love the progress. The car looks great
  2. I think it looks great! I’ve always wanted to do something like this. Can’t wait to see more
  3. AMT Trailers

    I think I saw the Fruehauf van is coming back with Coca Cola decals too
  4. International resin cabs?

    I can vouch for Dave’s stuff. Just got one of those 4000 series internationals a couple weeks ago. Top notch
  5. Almost looks like the old Entenmanns delivery vans. Can’t wait to see how it turns out!
  6. Big blue Mack, a long time coming

    The AITM kits aren't cheap, but they are really clean castings and build out beautifully. I recently bought an R700 and its one of the nicest resin conversion kits Ive ever bought. Absolutely worth the money.
  7. Big blue Mack, a long time coming

    AITM has larger tanks, the step toolboxes, as well as the correct hood and grille
  8. Resin Wrecker Body

    That Holmes bed is awesome. Picked it up at a show a couple years ago. Was building a 70s Dodge wrecker but got stuck on some issues with frame width and I put it on the back burner
  9. AMT Kenworth W925 Questions

    I'm not really sure I care what is on the box. Could be a plain brown packaging and I'll be totally fine. I just need to get like a dozen when they come out. Have many plans
  10. All three I bought have perfect cabs and chrome. All three came from different places (my LHS, one from Tower and one from Mark Twain Hobbies) and all three were fine. I wouldn't be swayed from buying another. Just make sure the box isn't crushed

    Great work! I'm interested in doing something similar now having seen your work. Gives me an idea for what I can do with a stalled Ford project I've had on the back burners for several years. Regarding the spokes, certain versions of the AMT Mack come with 6 spoke steers and 5 spoke drives. sure it was common at one time
  12. Glad I bought three. It looks like a much nicer build than the AMT KW cabovers
  13. I agree. Ive bought a number of Mack R models over the years. I have already built one stock so recently I picked up one of those R700 conversion kits from AITM for an original issue kit Im working on. To say the least, they are beautiful, clean castings and come with a bunch of nice parts. I cant wait to get mine worked on. I plan to buy many more as soon as the reissues hit the shelves.
  14. http://www.aitruckmodels.com/pages/ck123mackr700westcoast.html This is the one I think you're after
  15. AITM has several nice conversion kits for the r700. I just bought one. Well worth the cost. Going to get another once the R model kits are released. I can't wait
