  4. Here is an alternative for you from the Sterling Factory. You CAN use the AutoCar rears in place of chain drives. Paul.

    Mack R685ST

    Great looking chassis!! Paul
  6. Hees a few photos of a 1940's 1950's Sterling drive set up. The differential is in the center of the 2 axles. Look at Tamiya, Top Studio and Model Factory Hiro, they make a few 1/12 and 1/16 scale Motorcycle chain and sprocket set up detail sets. https://www.hiroboy.com/112_Motorcycle_Chain_Set__P941--product--2135.html
  7. I generally use the AMT Autocars for any of the non Pete, KW Mack or IH kitsconversions paul

    Roadway Mack B67 with Contour Cab

    Going to be nice when done. Drove one once, I'm over 6 feet with size 13 shoes and glove size is XXL, My head hit the roof and the cab back and the wheel was in my waist. Never would have made it in their era.

    KW 900

    Nice ,super clean build. I like it! Paul
  20. Add to my winter list a pair of AMT Cat Dozers and the AMT heavy flatbed trailer.
  21. 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. :)
  22. 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

    1970 Ford F100 4x4

    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
