  1. If you want to get technical, the "likes" are the easier option since it's one click versus clicking in the box, typing your text, then clicking Submit. The nice thing is if you don't care for the system, you don't have to use it and you can ignore the notifications for it. You can still reply to a post with text, just as you did before, nothing has changed in that regard. I do agree that so far, this system is strange in that it gives options for responses, but yet only shows a number next to the heart icon especially when the notifications only show that someone reacted to your post.
  2. It's a great kit and I wish they would re-issue it, but alas the molds are most likely permanently in monster truck mode and won't be reverted back at all. I was lucky to find the weird "camper" High Sierra version of the kit at a hobby shop for $75, as well as find the stock grille and rollbar. I guess I would have considered this one of my "holy grail" kits before I found my kit since I love this generation of C/K, and being in 1/16 scale means I can have even more fun with the detailing.
  3. Unfortunately the kit springs are attached to the axles so he would need to cut them off to move them.
  4. Depending on how high you want, I would first suggest the taller body mounts since the kit frame is nicely separate from the body. Next I would go with longer shackles. If you need more, you can slightly heat the springs and re-arch them taller.
  5. On the other hand, the Goodyear radials are some great tires! It’s just too bad they only made them 14” and not 15”!
  6. To be fair, how many people who would use the like button aren't actually writing responses now anyways? I'm not sure if people who do not have an account here count towards the view count for a topic, but it does show that there are already people who view but don't leave a comment. Now I know that (a general) you would think that would mean even less comments, but I think that if someone is now taking the effort to leave a comment, they aren't just going to suddenly stop commenting because there is now a like button. I also think the like button is great to agree with someone's post rather t
  7. In any case, I think that a "like" feature would be beneficial in threads where voting on builds are involved. You wouldn't need to fiddle with making polls here or on a third party site, and rather you could just count the likes (unless you are one who really adores viewing graphs!)
  8. So Moebius, a relatively small model manufacturer, makes a full lineup of Ford trucks from the 60's and early 70's, and they are quite popular. Yet someone like Revell couldn't come along and do the same thing with the 67-72 GM trucks and not expect enough sales to justify it?
  9. Alright, thank you! I may just 3d print my own since then I can make sure they will fit the wheels I am using.
  10. As the title states, are there any resin casters out there making these Chevy/GMC hubcaps?
  11. I am looking for a version of the 1/12 Bel Air kit, unbuilt (preferred), started, or possibly even built. I have a thread going on my 1/8 1985 Corvette that I would like to trade, I will repeat here that it is in good shape and complete, the parts are just all loose and there isn't the original box.
  12. They re-released that kit several years back as an Ed Roth themed kit. I got one to build as a gift for my dad to replicate his build of the original issue of this kit. Let me tell you that the opening parts are not great, and it had flash for days.
  13. I know that 252" is the top end of the wheelbase for that configuration, but I know some people were saying that the kit seemed short which is why I was wondering what the kit itself scales out to.
  14. I have repaired the broken pieces and confirmed that all the parts are there.
  15. Bit of a bump, but I just picked up this kit recently and I have been looking at how other people have built it up. I see that some have lengthened the frame, and I know that the real truck had a range of wheelbases for this cab/drive configuration. Does anyone know what the original kit wheelbase is (approximately) supposed to be?
  16. To be fair, I think Joseph's (Fireball) conversion surpasses anything that would come from Moebius if they decided to make a 250/350 version of the kit.
  17. For those that have built this, how well does it go together?
  18. Revell’s full detail Peterbilt 359 kit. I’m guessing this is a repop of an older kit based on what I see at Scalemates?
  19. This kit is still available for trades! I’m fine with started/partially built kits too.
  20. I mean the 1/25 kit isn't too far off, it only has the rear doors open and doesn't have the engine detailing parts, but it does also have a fairly detailed interior, and full chassis and engine. Being 1/16 scale certainly does help this one though and it would be cool to see it released again.
  21. I know I've seen this kit on ebay before. Does anyone know if it's just an enlarged version of their 1/25 custom van kit? It certainly resembles it in some ways.
  22. Most likely, do you have some pictures?
