Scale I Build

Found 4 results

  1. Haven’t built a truck in 30 years. Bought this lit for $17 on a whim last year. And wanted to challenge myself with a first time weathering attempt. Goal was to do a Nevada -Texas truck that had some miles that were all in the dry climates. Here is the cab finished tonight. The tanker will be picked up in Texas when we can find a driver, probably Monday.
  2. I built the Dodge A100 monster truck many years ago (approx. 1990). It has a number of scratchbuilt features including forward-tilting body, working simulated hydraulic cylinders for body and steering, working 4-wheel steering, full wiring & plumbing, etc. At the same time I started a rebuild of an old IMC Dodge L700 to match the MT. The frame was stretched and a tag axle added. An IMC Big Rig semi trailer donated it's floor for a custom drop-deck trailer. The project stalled and went into a box. I recently got it out and was determined to get it finished! This is the result. The ramps store under the trailer deck. Trailer wheels, tires and suspension came from AMT 1/32 reefer trailer
  3. Back from a long time of not being able to post on here.
  4. So, after almost 10 years of celibacy, I have decided it was time to get back and build a few models. A first I was thinking about some 50's winged or finned cruisers, but then I came across Truck drivin' song by Weird Al and that song got inside my head so deep that I decided to build a truck instead. For some time I was thinking about AMT's Diamond Reo, but it turned out that there are no photo-etched details for this set yet, and to be honest, the factory grille in this set is really terrible. And since CMT ( http://www.liaznavzdy.cz/nedtrans/ctm.php ) confirmed plans to create and release the details in the future, I decided to wait for them and select a different truck instead. After seeing Auburn and Cord from Lindberg, I was very skeptical, but it turned out the mold was done by a different company (IMC), and it looked pretty reasonable to build. (Afterwards I also learned that the Auburn and Cord aren't Lindberg molds either, but you know, releasing THOSE kits under your name still tells something about you as well). So L-700 it was. Gathering information about this car is a little tricky, because more than 80% of Google finds show a built model instead of the original car, and engine details are nearly impossible to find. And if you find some, they are dirty and rusty as hell, that you actually can't even tell what the original engine color was. But I want to build a truck that just came out of the factory. I also still don't have the room to set out all the accessories (mostly pistol and compressor), so I started by cutting out the pieces, understanding where and how they fit, and some sanding. And I also glued some components together and drilled a hole into the exhaust. And got pretty upset by the fuel tanks, because they don't fit together - because the bottom part does not go straight up, it is slowly expanding to the sides. I will have to do much more sanding to get that part straight.
