  3. I had a quick PM chat with Jeff. I will host the 2022 BRBO. I will start an official thread tonight where everyone can sign-up. All my hopes for a good year!!! Rog๐Ÿ˜
  4. Started with the AMT Freightliner FLC and AMT Great Dane flatbed trailer. The trailer is just shake the box, all lights are aftermarket CTM from ST Supply. The tractor: Aftermarket parts include: Fenders and rear bumper from Model Truck Builder. Decals from Modeltruckin. PE and lights are CTM from ST Supply. Had a headache rack from MTB but couldn't find a glue that would hold. Had straps and ratchets for the load but just didn't get to install them. I enjoyed the build, on to next year. Thanks Rog๐Ÿ˜
  5. I am about to finish up this years BRBO. I am in for 2022, I already have my condo picked. rog ๐Ÿ˜
  6. I had last week off from work and was able to get quite a bit done. It seems like this project has been nothing but one step forward and two steps back. I think I can finally call the chassis done; the interior is done I just need to install it. Some detail painting or BMF and add the shiny bits. That's it for now, see you Under Glass. Rog๐Ÿ˜
  7. I was in Seymour, IN store on Tuesday. They had the Diamond Rio & White Western Star, I picked up one of each (if I would have had more money, I would have taken them all). They also had the 97 Mustang GT. Rog๐Ÿ˜
  8. I built this kit a few months back, it all most falls together, no trouble at all I will say this; be careful when you glue on the landing gear, it's very easy to get it in the sliding section. Following along. Rog๐Ÿ˜
  9. I like to look with the sleeper but it does make it look a little stubby. Care to share, that would be some useful info!! Following along. Rog๐Ÿ˜
  10. I was in the North Vernon, IN Wal-Mart yesterday, they had one of the pallets in the back main isle. It was picked over but I was able to get the Ford snowplow and a Chevelle pro street. Rog๐Ÿ˜
  11. O.K. You guys have me scared now!!!! On my current BRBO build I am using the 2X gloss clear (first pic). I used it on the fenders and rear panel (second pic). I haven't put any clear on the cab parts yet. The color coat is Duplicolor Perfect Match over Rust-oleum 2 in 1 gray primer. Now I'm afraid that the 2X Gloss will eat the decals, I did use 2X satin and semi-gloss on the trailer with no ill effects to the decals. So do I have anything to worry ABOUT??? Thanks Rog๐Ÿ˜ P.S. All of the decals I am using are from Modeltruckin. I have already had to order a 2nd set because of my mistake and I don't want have do a 3rd.
  12. Thanks for the comments!! It's much appreciated. Wish I could take credit but they are decals from Modeltrucking. Look way better then I expected. CTM thru ST Supply Supposedly the decals shipped yesterday. Thanks!!! Rog๐Ÿ˜
  13. Update: I have the fenders mounted, the rear panel is done just needs glue. Fuel tanks and battery boxes almost ready to install. Was working on the cab decals but messed up the nose piece on the right side and had to order a new set. Still waiting for the new decals. Did a couple of mock-up pics. The trailer is basically done I just need to add a few pieces when I add the load. Back when I have more!!
  14. I'm finally able to get back to it. Trailer: I was working on trying to finish it and realized I needed to do a bit of modification before some of the parts I wanted to do would fit. I have the work done and it's back in paint, I'm going to let it cure for a few days. Tractor: I have the rear bumper mounted and am working on getting the fenders mounted (nothing is glued yet). I did a quick mock-up to get an idea what it's going to look like. Back when I have more!! Rog๐Ÿ˜

    Was looking for something to do while I was off for my surgeries (carpal tunnel) so I pulled these to kits. Nothing fancy!! Don't criticize to much the yellow & pink ones were done mostly only left handed and the blue & gold ones mostly only right handed. Rog๐Ÿ˜
  17. Way behind on posting what I have picked up. I will start with the latest. Pic 1: Big Boy Hobbies yesterday - on Pendleton Pike in Indy. Pic 2: Hobby Town last Friday - on 82nd street in Indy, I also got some styrene and wood shapes. The next 4 pics were ordered the first week in June and received through out the month. Pic:3 Hobbylinc Pic 4: ST Supply Company Pic 5: Welcome to moluminum - Sample Slogan (3dcartstores.com) Pic6: Model Truck Builder Parts Store Pic 7: Hobby Lobby the last few months. Not pictured 2 Revell w900 Aerodynes and a White Freightliner SD/DD Pic 8: What I got for Christmas. Rog๐Ÿ˜
  18. These might be what you want. Ambulance_Body (resinrealm.net) 2005 Ford E350 E450 Ambulance - SSB Resin (rocketfin.com) ๐ŸšจPro Built 1/25 1/24 scale Ambulance/Rescue/SWAT Truck add-on item! See Pics! | eBay Also you can get parts and pieces here. Three Inches Under Rog
  19. I guess no one has used this particular product. If they are 8 scale feet wide there looks to be at least 48 scale feet on the sheet. If I measured correctly the trailer only scales out to 42 feet. So I guess 1 will be enough. Thanks Rog๐Ÿ™ƒ
  20. I gave this some consideration when I started the kit. I have ZERO experience modifying anything, it was the only trailer I had and didn't want to take the chance of screwing it up!! So I'm going with the decals, I just need to know how much material I will need. Thanks Rog
  21. A couple of weeks ago sent an e-mail to Modeltrucking with a question about one of their products and have yet to receive a reply. Wood #3 floor kit : Zen Cart!, The Art of E-commerce (modeltruckin.com) I need to know if there is enough material in one set to do a full flatbed trailer (in my case the AMT extendible), or will I need to get two of them? Thanks Rog๐Ÿ˜
  22. I was curious so I looked them up online. Found this one on Amazon: Amazon.com: Shaken Not Stirred Tattoo Ink Shaker Hobby Paint Mixer Permanent Makeup Pigment Nail Polish Gel Lacquer Microblading Varnish Bottle Shaking Machine: Beauty Looks to be similar to the one OP has. Rog๐Ÿ˜
