  1. Thank you I ended up posting this in the wrong column but oh well thanks again
  2. I use colored electrical tape ( black leaves nasty marks on light colors) and also 3m makes a body shop tape that works very well- i usually just spray the base coat of white or gray primer , clean it with alcohol, depending on the size of stripes I'll use quarter inch or half inch tape wrapping around the drum 3 to 4 times , then spray your colors, lightly wet sand it and then Clear coat it - when using the rex kit drum with the big lap welds it is difficult I usually try to push the tape up close to the line somtimes blow dry it works or use a lil rubber cement soo it sneaks down tight , ei
  3. After my friend Dave Natale mentioned to me that the late great Tripp Anderson started working on a crane carrier dcm cab years ago and sent it to him and it never got finished I had the honor to complete it soo it could be casted - it is a complete cab chassis kit available threw aitm , i scratchbuilt the crossmembers rear suspension and front tubular axle the frame rails are I beam plastruct -this one was inspired by a real monster that certified concrete of nyc ran back in the day but with my own door logo - the mixer is the kit rex 232 , scratchbuilt water tank and tower( available threw
  4. The very last truck which is a crane carrier still in progress- scratch built chassis- aitm challenge mixer with extended drum
  5. After having pics of my models on allreadymix.com I was contracted to build for mixers for a guy in Massachusetts of trucks his dad drove back in the day - the first is a chicopee concrete autocar which was the first truck he ever drove the last 3 are dauphinias trucks which he worked for 30 years until becoming I'll a week before retiring and sadly passing away
  6. Here's a Gary Wallace ( GW trucks) dm690 conversion - extended dm600 frame rails with fishplates ,12x24 wheels n tires , the mixer is my own scratch built mcneilius mtm body which I had casted by Dave Natale of aitm and is available to purchase- if somebody is looking to do an 80's or newer mixer this is the body u want !
  7. Most people on here who know me know I build alot of mixers and they are mostly blue n white but I decided to do somthing differant and a good cause - it's a Dm800 with 80,000 rears 12x24 tires n wheels wheelbase has been altered ,it has the later after '73 dash but with the flat back cab ( the idea was to create a u model replacement cab this was a parts box truck soo what the heck) the mixer is a resin cast by plow chaser that was mastered by Tripp Anderson , the drum was extended to 15 yards scratch built water tank and fenders
  8. Personally the first thing I would do is tear the whole thing apart - I've seen the model in person and it sits on a paystar chassis which doesn't splay out in front like macks and brockways do ur better off using mack dm800 frame rails ( many people don't realize that Brockway frame rails were almost identical to macks considering they owned them since the 50's) next I would call dave Natale ( aitm ) and get the rest of the challenge mixer running gear ( u have a challenge drum with a rex front and rear pedistall the tip of the drum doesn't line up in back ) - here's some pics of 2 brockway 3
  9. Here's a b81 mixer and b815 dump in progress- both sit on slightly narrowed dm800 frames - i too cut the hood open on the mixer and after going threw all that I said screw it on the dump truck
