Dodge L-700 help please


Recommended Posts

Guys:

A short while ago I bought the Dodge L-700, the one with the flatbed and the '40 Ford Coupe. While I've been working on the cab, and the cab working on me (why won't those doors line up????) I put the other parts aside. But now that I'm working on the trailer I can only find 2 of the outer rims. Either I lost them somehow, or they weren't in the box to begin with.

Has anyone else had that problem?

Thanks

John

Typical problem

Either enlarge doors with added styrene then re-shape door to fit opening or, add styrene to door opening of cab then re-shape opening of cab to fit door

Good Luck, and remember .....this is F U N

Those hinges are a pain. On the last one I did I filled in the holes in the hinges with plastic and re-drilled them with smaller holes and then used a common pin to secure them together. Make the holes just a bit oversize but not so much that the door sags or wobbles when you open it.
