  1. Great kits, I grab them when ever I see them. I must have about 50 Michelin men and 25 of the Fruit of the Loom chefs. most every truck in Europe has at least 2 Michelin men on it some where.
  2. After building one I found a few interesting things. The Utility Body fits all trucks with an 8 foot bed. BUT if you reverse the front and back ends it now will fit a 6 foot short bed truck. Windshield install is trying, I found part of the issue is the thickness of the front 'A' pillars isn't consistent, the right side on both the 60's and 70's cabs is thicker. I sanded both down to be thinner, slightly radius-ed the side "gasket" on the windshield and from the front popped the top in and than slightly deflected the cowl (No firewall in place) and popped the bottom in from the front. Seems to work easier than the install from the back as per instructions. Worked on the 1965 and the 1970 kits. Paul

    That is a beautiful build and the paint is great, I saw those all the time when I first went OTR. Golden age of trucking IMO. Paul
  4. Moebius kit build to be from the time when Ford made OTR and farm tractors. Added full engine compartment details, made up dual exhaust because nothing sounds better than an 352 FE with glass packs! Paint is 2005 Chrysler Pacifica Yellow and decals are from 1970 F100 4x4 kit. Tools in bed are scratch built.

    Glad I'm not the only one who manages to get a bug or drop the painted part. :)

    Started this kits kind of half hardheartedly because the box art build made it look meh! Here it is after hiding in the AC all week end. Tires are a set of Shabo Desert Duelers I've had for ages. I shaved off the nubs on the wheels and added a .020 strip around the wheel to hold the tires. Paul Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki

    Beautiful job! It is one of my grail kits. The oil company my uncle worked at had these and Macks as their tanker home delivery units. Paul

    All done only one minor issue and I'm also having it in the 1970 F100 4x4. is the windshield fits so tight that I had to relieve the cab opening and sand the windshield flange area down. Like I said very minor. Paint is Royal Blue enamel from Ace Hardware.bed wood is a decal from Gofer Decals.

    Part Box Louisville

    I shot for the look of a unit assembled from basically spare parts. Kind of thing that will earn money with minimal investment. Louisville chassis and cab, Cummins Non Turbo, Fuller trans, Mercury sleeper and early Pete Air ride. Biggest mods was the dog house to clear the Cummins. Paul
