    A friend of mine passed away and left me a custom made 1985 Peterbilt made by De-Elegant Model Trucks in Chicago. If I can’t contact him, how can I learn more about my truck?

  6. Here are a few pics of a current project. The AITM B61 is a beautiful kit. Working on the glass now. It’s been the hardest part of the build. Still have to touch up the stripes on the tanker. My honey-do list is growing now that it’s warm out so my time at the bench has been limited.

    Quarantine Builds

    Thanks guys. It’s funny you talk about the smell of a kit Brian. I opened up a factory sealed Kenworth logging truck the other day and the smell took me back to the first time I built the kit as a kid. Great memories.

    Another one bites the dust?

    I would certainly like to see this forum continue, and thrive. It does get a little harder to visit and post regularly during the warmer months, but I will do my best. I’ve got upcoming projects and completed builds to post, so I’ll stay active. I actually discovered this forum while looking for parts a while back. I just bought a flat top sleeper roof for the Italeri Peterbilt Sleepers, a new resin item offered here. To me, this site is very useful to the truck builder, and I’d like to encourage people to visit.

    Another one bites the dust?

    It's been a month since Hank's Truck Forum faded away into cyber oblivion. First the picture site, now the forum, both gone. However, from a truck model building standpoint, Hank's was never very active. Nonetheless it's still a loss for the truck building community. With the calendar about to turn to June, the warm summer weather is upon us. Normally that means activity on forums such as this one tends to slow. This forum has over 500 registered members, yet fewer than 10 visit and contribute on a regular basis. This upcoming summer season doesn't hold much promise for an increase in activity either. So now what? Does MTB suffer the same fate as Hank's or do we survive the current lack of interest and live to see the fall season? What are your thoughts on this? Do you want to see this forum continue or do you really not care about it anymore?

    Transtar II Log Truck

    Thanks!! You're right, I built the Johnson truck and had to build another. 😀 Thanks! I like Detroits! My favorite one to use in builds is the 6-71.

    I like it! That is one serious bumper on the front! I thought that I had a big one on the front of my H-model Mack! Nice work!

    Reo Gold Comet

    Truly a work of art in the making. Your master is already a work of art in itself.

    Reo Gold Comet

    Here's what it looks like built up. Just up on blocks for now. Time to start working up a frame.

    Transtar II Log Truck

    Great looking truck! I really like the engine, you don’t see many people use 6v92 Detroits in their builds. I agree that it needs to be reissued. It’s got to be one of the most requested truck reissues out there. It’s an incredibly popular model today, I’m seeing a lot of guys building them, especially lately.

    Transtar II Log Truck

    Looks great all wrapped up! I would also like to see a re-release, have one in my stash already. Sorta like potato chips.... just can’t have one. Nice work

    Transtar II Log Truck

    Thanks Anthony! I would like to see the Transtar II released again too along with the other Ertl kits. I know the tooling was modified from the Transtar to make the Transtar II and from the 4200 to make the 4300, but they managed to release the W900 kit that was said to have been modified. My hope is that there would be enough interest to warrant such an undertaking as making the Transtar and 4200 again. With all that said, I think the Transtar II and the S series trucks would be the easiest to release first, that is if the molds can be found. Thanks again. Thanks!
