  1. Add to my winter list a pair of AMT Cat Dozers and the AMT heavy flatbed trailer.
  2. Picked up a pair of Autocar dumps and plan on building one of my real units. The second build is a stretched cab Mack Cruiseliner with Mack twin turbo V10. Up here in Maine where I am the 3 days of summer is due to arrive on Monday. :)
  3. Nice work and cool project. I worked for Walton P Davis in Locust Valley L.I. N.Y. in 1973 and they had a few dozen of them and ran horses and Moving trailers up and down the east coast. All V8 powered and ran with trucks with "real" engines quite easily. The issue like the Allis Chalmers "Big Als" was lack of service facilities.

    My KW W900A Aerodyne

    I like the pearl white color. Your weathering on the Cat is very realistic and well done. Going to be a sharp model when it is all finished. Paul

    1978 Dodge D100

    Started out to build my '88 D150 I bought new (41000 miles) but things are different. Cab roof, hood are major different but the least least issue is the grill. Whipped out the Revell Dodge Ramcharger 4x4 and low and behold it is 1/24 So decided to make a D100 with the 1990 two tone of Viper Blue and Silver. Thought lets really step out of the box and make it a 225 Slant Six and a Heavy Duty 4 speed. Paul

    Kenworth and Steer Car

    All of the projects look good! Paul
  12. 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.
  13. 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

    67 Freightliner

    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
  15. 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.
