  1. Started with a scratch built RS Mack that needed to be more than a power unit. Stretched it about an 1 1/2". Started to build up the body from a Leech unit in the yard where my Marmon is parked right now. Also on a whim stuck it on a Mack LMSW that is slated to be a Maine Logger unit.

    Mashpee 354 is finished.

    I took the AFV Club 1/35 M35 Vietnam gun truck and scaled it up to 1/25 and scratch built it. The chassis, wheels and suspension are kit bashed from a pair of Italeri 1/24 Opel Blitz. Cab roof and windshield are from an old Monogram hot rod kit, air cleaner cover is actually a Tuxedo shirt cuff stud. There is a few kits on here I've scaled up from 1/35 , one is an AM General M917 dump truck I scaled up from the Trumpeter U.S. Army Container semi truck kit.

    Quarantine Builds

    I got a Gershaw scrap metal unit done. 6V71, shortened cab and chassis, home brew decals. No illusion, Gershaw runs smaller 20" rims on the front on al of their trucks. Easier to turn in their shredder yard. Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Cat/Mitsubishi service van.

    Yes we need a ton of overhead protection! Here is our Shoreham rig I started a few years ago. I scaled up a 1/35 GMC to scratch build it in1/25. Still doing the tank, pumps, hose reels and froward below bumper spray units. Now the Long Island built Fire-Matic factory built units are replacing the ex mil units here

    Beautiful work! Those Cape Cod units are sure built a tad heavier than our L.I. Pine Barren units are. Paul

    Dragon Tiger I Wittmans last Tiger

    Very nice build. Did the kit come with the zimmerit or did you add it? The Frui tracks make a big difference on all armor especially T34's IMO. Making up a set for a 251 UHU conversion on the bench. Paul

    Hello from across the pond

    Welcome!! Don't F.B. either so can't wait to see you post some here! Paul
  9. Moebius kit build to be from the time when Ford made OTR and farm tractors. Added full engine compartment details, made up dual exhaust because nothing sounds better than an 352 FE with glass packs! Paint is 2005 Chrysler Pacifica Yellow and decals are from 1970 F100 4x4 kit. Tools in bed are scratch built.
  10. Now that I am officially semi retired (unless I find an interesting haul) and since it's too late to repaint my Marmon time to build models . . . Building a big sleeper, E12 V12 Turbo tri axle Mack. Since I had to cut a pair of cabs and a pair of chassis figured I do a shorty also. Here is the start. Paul
  11. Made the hood fold, added tool boxes, modified the front bumper and full wiring and last added the missing AC compressor for the Red Dot roof AC. Paul

    1/16 scale Peterbilt 359.

    The interior work and screening on the steps are excellent. Color it is painted works very well the the chrome items. It will be an impressive rig when done! Is the Blue a Humbrol paint? Is it enamel, lacquer or acrylic? Paul

An other thing I do is look at cheap necklaces for chains. Paul

    AMT Freightliner COE Dual Drive

    Nice work. It look like it is going to be a good project. Paul
  18. Got some more done on the chassis, first color on the engine, roughed the interior assembly and rounded up some parts for the shorty chassis from the dead truck box. Paul Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki

    Welcome!! AMT does a log trailer in 1/25, it is out of production but not hard to find on the internet. as for a power unit you can use a number of AMT kits including the like the Western Star or International Paystarand for a few. AITM does resin cab conversions to do purpose built power units that use AMT Autocar, Peterbilt or Kenworth Chassis' https://aitruckmodels.com/product-category/conversionkits/
  20. Came out excellent and you color combination is a great choice. Paul
