    Ford Model AA truck

    I'd be lost because the chassis is almost to detailed to cover, but an AA is never seen build in anything but 1/35 or 1/72 scale, so it does deserve a body. Could always make it a cut away factory display. Paul.

  4. Here are some shots of a model I'm building of a 1930/31 Ford Model AA truck. A Minicraft 1/16 Model A truck kit is the donor for the cab, engine, front axle and a few small parts. Everything else, frame, wheels, tranny and rear axle are all scratch built. Tire are from Thomas toys, made for some old cast toy truck which happened to be the perfect size. This has been on the back burner for a while, really should get out and finish it. The chassis is all the farther I've gotten. All the wheel bolts are tiny brass bolts and nuts.I'm almost inclined not to finish as most of the frame will not be seen. The engine will be wired and all the brake rods installed. The drag link moves with the front wheels.

    PPVintage takes time to answer but they DO answer. Sourkraut appears to only sell plastic now. Paul

    Hi, I'm Jim Page from Pennsylvania. Been building models since 1964 and been trying to get back into it now that I'm semi retired. I fool mostly with real antique cars and am currently restoring a 1936 Dodge sedan. My son recently purchased an old 1975 Chevy C65 single axle dump truck for his construction business. He was really excited about it and it has brought back memories of my teenage years. It's a real beast but a lot of fun to drive. I'd been wanting to build a 1/25 scale model of it for him and have been searching for parts on the internet. I did see a resin C6500 Chevy/GMC conversion kit at PPvintage kits and some parts at Sourkrauts parts but have not been able to contact them. Does anyone know if either of these companies are still in business or if anyone else sells the c6500 kit? Any help will be appreciated. Another foray in modeling that I tried was to build a 1/6 scale model of my '36 Dodge engine. 2 years and still not completely finished but here are a couple of shots of it. Take care guys!
  14. Hello. I'm new to the forum and am looking for a resin Chevy /GMC C6500 cab kit. I saw one on PPVintage kits website but have not been able to get them to respond to emails. Are they still in business? If not, does anyone know where I can find this kit or did it disappear? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

    Hi, I am John Ross, originally from England and now living in France. I am retired and spent my whole working life in road haulage, originally as a driver of what I think is called an 18-wheeler, working my way up to manager, and then spending the last 15 years once again as a driver after being made redundant. I started truck modelling when I was a boy, spending my pocket money on Airfix kits, never completing a model without converting it. For many years I have built truck models from scratch, always in the scale of 1/76. Here are some pictures of more recent projects. Best Regards, John Ross

    Welcome to the group Rich!! Speed doesn't mean lack of quality, but the main thing is to please your self. The AMT/ERTL decals should be good as long as the were not in a hot and damp area. I would pick up some Micro Scale Liquid Decal and brush on a coat just to be on the safe side, Just remember to trim close when you use them. Paul

    Hello out there my name is Rich Kinane i just joined as a member and am just getting started building models after a 40 years. I'm 60 years old and am currently building a model of my 72 Ford F250 4x4. I know I have to slow down and take my time I'm a get it done quickly kind of guy but I know if it is going to be a quality piece I have to slow it down.I have a International Transtar 2 cabover that I have had for maybe 25 years and will be my next build. Does anyone know if the decals would still be good after this much time.Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks Rich Kinane [email protected] .

    Road Boss Custom

    I love it. Some very simple changes on an uncommon rig add up to an unmistakable design.

    Road Boss Custom

    Ton of little touches. Air extractors on hood sides, molded grill shell, quad lights. On the cab I enlarged the rear glass, made custom ram air cleaner. Stretched the chassis and machined a set of air line fittings into the frame cover. Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki
