  1. Thanks for the info, now I just have to wait to see if I can get a kit!
  2. I did get in contact with Kelly today via phone but the kits are out of stock! She thought that she might have a second so she's going to look and let me know. Can warped or damaged bodies be repaired?

    Ford Model AA truck

    I've been debating on what kind of bed to use, stake bed, dump, grain or maybe a HD express, Although I don't think any Model AA express trucks were built with dual wheels. I was looking today at the cab; it's amazing how much detail is left out on some of these kits, even in 1/16 scale. Lots of work to get the cab looking correct!
  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.
  5. Weeks, wow, I would never thought that! I guess I'll wait and see! Thanks

    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!
  8. 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
