    Thanks! I'll try to show what I've just been working on. You probably know the Revell Unimog kits and the Yellow Submarine kit, and I combined them.

    Done a few myself. I like your M-715. Here's one I did a few months back. A "surplus" piece given a second life.

    Thanks, Driptroit ! I wanted the old Mercury sleeper look but since I couldn't find a sleeper kit that size (1:43) I went with the tried-and-true white pine and Molotow method Johnny

    1944 Diamond T 6x6

    Got a bit more done on the chassis and axle assemblies. Lots of small stuff to do to get it all together. All torque rods are in place. Front axle is glued to the springs and U-bolts added. The springs are still detachable and will need final pinning. The rear axles are finished along with brake parts. The axles pivot up and down with the springs floating free on top. Drive shaft between axles is also in place. Tires and wheels are still unattached and will have to be painted before they can be mounted in place.

  15. Oh Yeah that's for sure. I remember that sound so well. Thanks! Johnny
  16. Yeah, the Autocar in the 4th photo from the end had a good ol 8v71. I remember they had a sandwich board out in front of it just out of the photo that said it was a 318 Detroit. Not sure how common it was in an Autocar, but overall there was a lot of green leakers at the show. In fact, the green and white 352 just ahead of it was a 1979 model with an 8v92 in it. The owner mentioned how uncommon it was to have one in a 352 that wasn’t a 352H. All original. I said “oh man, I bet that sounds sweet” and he said “we’ll, let me fire it up for you”. It was a crowd-caller, because that old mean Detroit starting bringing a bunch of people over when he started it up.

    For anyone in the area who's interested, the Mayberry Truck Show in Mt.Airy is next weekend. The show last year was a blast and I have no doubt this year will be even better.

    Thanks, Vince. I hope to do some learning and contribute if I can.
  19. What a fine weekend ! Do you remember what engine that was in the old Autocar? Is that a 6V-92? I had a 6V-71 once and the one in the Autocar looks different somehow. Also, isn't it unusual to have Detroit Diesel power in an Autocar? I tend to think of them as being Cummins or maybe Cat powered. Hmmm.. Just curious, Johnny
  20. Other than checking out all of the awesome trucks up close, the thing I enjoyed most was the conversations I had with the owners. So many great stories. Another thing I enjoyed was the drive south towards home on Sunday. Many of the trucks were taking the same route, so it was like a 5 hour rolling truck show.

    Welcome to the forum. You bring a lot of resources, that’s for sure. I hope you enjoy your time here.

    Back to truck modeling

    Hello folks, my name is Dave Brown. I've been either driving trucks or selling truck parts since getting out of the Marines in 74. I'm currently working for the Pete dealership in Charlotte until I figure out whether I'm ever gonna retire or not. I'll be glad to help with reference material if possible. At present, I'm working on the old Monogram 1/16 scale 359 and have a couple of other projects in the works for some customer friends.

    I'll try to show some other models here. I'm really into Kenworths, especially fire trucks so here are a couple I've done. Bill

    Nice work, Bill. Have seen your work in Vintage Fire Truck magazine. Any new fire projects on the bench?
