  1. Thanks guys. Just noticed I need to touch up the rear mudflaps. The dm800 with dump trailer is next
  2. Took 6 weeks but done.i tried building this kit as a kid back in the early 80s but didnt get too far. Built box stock.this kit did not include front floatation tires. Had to scratch a new stack for the exhaust as the stock one wouldnt clear the body. Paint is forest green and bright red by rustoleum. Painted it to match the trucks that hauled out of the gravel pit behind my dads house back in the day.
  3. Abby and Elliot our 2 Norwegian elkhounds
  4. I'd guess the western star truck would be in the running...it can offered as a tractor, dump, mixer or logging truck. If they wanted to get the most out of a mold I'd say it would warrant more variations than an over the road highway tractor
  5. These are currently on my wife's 72 pontiac ventura 2 and I'm working on a model of it. Cant seem to locate anything that matches
  6. Old topic but I'd love to see the 72 ventura reissued. I may but the 72 nova and Jimmy flintstone conversion. I build trucks but recently my wife added this 72 to our driveway and I'd love a model of it
  7. I believe they all had floats in the front. The original box art doesnt show them being wide but if you look the dogs and spokes are deeper in the rim .
  8. Yes. The exhaust runs into the body when it's down and it prevents asphalt or wet material from sticking in cold weather. A few of our mack dumps at work have it...but being local I cant say if it makes a difference or not as some trucks here dont jave it and I dont really notice a difference.
  9. Just noticed a few online retailers have this model listed for preorder in late may to July! I'll be adding a few more to my pile for sure !
  10. it took hobby lobby a while to get the dm600 reissue. im sure they will dhow up there later
  11. i believe first gear made that truck for speedway. they also make this in 1/24th scale https://www.firstgearonline.com/product-store/towing-and-recovery/slideback-carriers/79-0572
  12. wow ! what a sharp truck. can i ask where you found the rear tires ?
  13. hello. after lurking for a few years i finally decided to join. when i was a kid...about 1980 or so my parents took me to a new store that opened and while walking through the toy section i was amazed at all the model kits, not so much the planes and ships, i had known about them for a bit but the trucks ! dumps, snowplows,bulldozers and big rigs. my father bought me the cat bulldozer but i was i no way ready for it. years later i was involved the 1/87 and still model quite a bit in that scale. but as of late i have been buying all the truck reissues from round 2 along with a dm800 ,autoc
