    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

After all the crappy news on the radio today, decided to do some sculpting. Thinking about bringing this out as a resin kit and would like imput from you guys on what you would like to see in a kit. Also in the pics are my 1/16 GoodYear Blue Streaks, better pics of these later. Brian

It's got my interest!!! Beautifully sculpted. The 1:1 may have been the high water mark for this era of digger.

Will be working on it this weekend. Now that the primer is on it I can start tightening and detailing the body. Want to get the engine fitted also. Body is made of polyurethane foam used for making industrial patterns. Professional version of balsa foam. Other projects are sitting till decals are sourced. Brian
