    A small save and rebuild

    That’s a beautiful little rig. Nice save! Great details in the bed. The tool box contents are awesome. The boom looks to be fully functional with that level of detail.

    Welcome to the forum! All it takes is a love for trucks, the rest you learn as you go.

    1971 Autocar A64B & Haulaway Trailer

    Nice-lookin’ hot rod style hauler. I’d imagine it would have quite the sound with that straight-piped v12. Funny about those tires, now we know Revell essentially got the design from themselves for their “floats”. A great build overall, and I especially like the 23 1/2 hour road service, just don’t call during that 30 minute break - whenever that is!

    Almost there

    Nice work so far. I like how the engine is a little dirty. I also like the addition of the visor and the headache rack. These are good kits. Highly versatile. You can really dress them up.

    BJ and the Bear

    Beautiful work on this one. Such an attractive paint scheme.

    Blue Devil

    I like it when the tank straps are painted to match the frame. Good color choices.

    Blue Devil

    Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you bring a lot of experience here when it comes to real trucks. That kind of knowledge can be really helpful to the modeling community. For the Classic XL, I wish it was easier to find in 1/24 or 1/25 scale. There’s been a very limited number of resin conversion kits made over the years. There’s also been a few guys to make them using parts (and ingenuity) from both Italeri’s FLC and FLD kits. Either way, not easy, unfortunately. Though, I’ve seen them in 1/32 scale here and there, but that doesn’t help much when you’re into 1/24 and 1/25.

    Earl Miller air lines

    Yeah, they do look nice. I have a few sets, myself.

    Pintle hooks

    Forgot about Jamie having them. Yeah, he has a lot of great stuff.

    1/32 snap kit aftermarket parts

    The only source I know of is a guy on eBay - blackjack_mod - he makes a lot of 1/32 aftermarket parts, and if he doesn’t list what you’re looking for, send him a message. He has a lot more than what’s on there now, and he is willing to design and make other parts.

    Pintle hooks

    It’s possible they had some on here, but I know there’s a few other sources, if MTB doesn’t have them. I haven’t purchased these parts in particular, but the other things I’ve received from Kootenay have been awesome. https://www.kootenay3dmodelparts.com/product-page/1-24-1-25-pintle-hitch-style-2

    3D printing

    I’m no expert on 3d printing whatsoever, but it does sound interesting, and I’ve purchased some printed parts and they’ve been great. I think it’s a huge part of the future of the hobby. Anyway, I was looking for random truck parts last night and stumbled upon this site which seems to have a few offerings of files in 1/25 scale. Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but I thought of your post when I saw it, and thought I’d reply. Maybe it’s a start. https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/big-rig-front-grill-for-peterbilt-359-1-25

    Frame stretch part MTB SP48

    Great to hear. That’ll be a big time saver.

    Frame stretch part MTB SP48

    Yeah that should make it much easier to stretch the Revell snap 359 chassis. I’ve stretched a couple Italeri 378 frames, myself. I bet a series of Italeri chassis stretch parts would sell well, too.

    CF Pusher Freightliner

    Awesome outdoor shots. Makes the “snow” look more realistic with the real sun on it. Just the right look all around, great weathering, nice display base. I like the rusty chipped finish on the exhaust outlet pipe coming off the engine. For its uniqueness, I’d have to say this is one of my favorite builds of yours.
