    Hi, Paul from Kansas

    Glad to have you with us Paul.
  3. Here's my take on the topic: frame stretch tutorial
  4. I finally finished it...for now... I may go back and touch up a few thing. I built this truck for an online contest over at The Unfinished Big Rig Model Truck Club on Facebook. I didn't fair as well in the voting as I hoped it would. Maybe I'll do better next time. Regardless, it was a great learning experience. The concept was to create a resto-mod COE Freightliner. I started with a fresh AMT COE Freightliner Kit. All other lifted parts were salvaged from the parts box. Chassis: Frame stretch using the rails from an AMT Peterbilt. Air ride suspension from an Italeri FLD 120 Engine: Cummins engine from an Italeri FLD 120 modified into an N14 (new heads, valve covers, fuel pump, etc.). Air to air setup was added to the radiator. Plumbing and hoses were built from the parts box and misc. wire. Clamps chrome sticker. Cab: Scratch built visor. Snap Pete mirrors. Rear fenders: Scratch built. Fifth wheel: ROG Peterbilt. Deck plates and rear light panel: scratch built from styrene Cab Steps: Scratch built. Fuel tanks: Stretched using like tanks from parts box. Air cleaners: ROG Peterbilt. Scratch built piping and parts box plumbing. Stack tops: Tubing wrapped in chrome sticker. Air Lines: Earl Miller. Wheels and tires: Mobius.
  5. What type(s) of glue do you all use, on what and why?

    3D Models

    Since I have so many irons in the fire and haven't had much of an opportunity to build, I thought I would share a few renders of the 3d trucks I have built over the years.

    Orders

    Shawn, Your order has shipped and you should have received a tracking number from PayPal and from the site as well. I appreciate the kind words from your fellow modelers on the site. I think we offer some pretty nice stuff at a fair price. I usually get things out a bit faster but the last few months, well really most of the year, has been crazy. Regarding the messages, were they sent through this site? --Casey

    Orders

    Hey Shawn, Where did you send the messages to? I have not received an e-mail, site message, or support request from you. I'm not trying to insinuate that you didn't send the messages. I'm just curious if there is a problem on my end. Regardless, I fell a bit behind because I have had to work a ton of overtime at my "real" job over the past month and a failure of my rear bumper mold. I am back to my regular schedule, the mold has been replaced and I am currently working to fill orders. I anticipate that your order will ship either tomorrow or Tuesday. Sorry for the delay, Casey

    Truck stuff

    Please post away. I intend to revamp the reference section and I will likely migrate some of it to it but this forum is fine for now. All contributions are welcomed and appreciated. —Casey
  16. Now available in the MTB Parts Store: ROG Pete Fat Front Fenders http://www.modeltruckbuilder.com/index.php?/store/
  17. Sorry I missed this post. We currently do not offer any hoods but I do have an extended hood for the ROG snap Pete in work. It will be at least a month or so before I will have the opportunity to finish and cast it. I'll make a post when it is available.
