    To be on the workbench for 2022

    Thanks. Yes I agree with your points. Your projects sound great and I like the idea for your spray booth. I don't have a basement or I would be doing something similar. For me it's always going to be wait for fresh air, low humidity. my table, and rattle cans. Although I have an airbrush someone gave me 4 or 5 years ago I am content to go with the known, vs. the unknown.
  5. Hello all hope everyone is doing great. These will be on my workbench for 2022: Mack DM600- I'm hung up on the most basic question I have on the build itself. Do I go with the DM series and make it a construction tractor? Or do I go with a fleet unit (Roadway, or similar). If I'm rivet counting it's the DM. However I don't generally count rivets. However winter being as it may here in NJ it may afford me to change my mind a few hundred times. Chevy Titan 90- Truth be told the Titan 90 is one of my favorite tractors from my younger days. Also I liked it better than it's more popular cousin the Astro 95. This will be a parts box build and destined to be more than likely a full year build. Estimated completion date is December 2022, January 2023. Ford LNT8000- Once again one of my favorite tractors from my teen years. Loved the stubby nose, and it was a very popular tractor for the grocery/freight haulers where I grew up in Long Island NY. I have been building this on, and off for about 2 years now. About time I finished her off. Peterbilt 359 (Revell USA)- destined to be another year long project. The top 3 will take precedence in building order. Kenworth W900 (Revell USA)- See commentary on the Pete 359. Same situation. Happy New Year all. And if anybody cares to share their thoughts, I'm all ears. Regards, Jersee Jerry

    Found at Walmart

    I was in my local Walmart last week and I came across this. The AMT White Western Star Coca Cola edition. I have a lot of ideas, and a lot of concerns for the kit. Not sure if I am going day cab, or sleeper. Never have done a stretch so the sleeper may be out. In any event my biggest decision as always is color(s). Most of my time I go with Blue. Easy, simple, many shades available. Could use any suggestions on paint. Also some tips on building the kit. Such as what is the easiest way to assemble the mirrors? Do I use an epoxy type cement, or super glue? Thanks.

    Thanks
  8. Hell all hope all are well. I just received the Revell Snap Peterbilt 359 front visors from the MTB website today and have questions about attaching them to the cab. There were small grey parts in a bag do those get attached to the visor and act like “spacers”? If anybody knows please let me know. Thank you. Regards, JerseeJerry55

    Thank you. There is one small speck you cannot see in the pics. Dust must have gotten in the process. However since its gonna sit on a shelf, and not be entered in any contest I'm okay with it. Besides since when has a project that has emerged from Fowler's House of Paint not had an issue of any kind? The streak continues. Happy Thanksgiving.

    Revell snap frame. The ROG frame is just the inspiration.

    On the Winter workbench

    Hello all and hope everyone’s well. On the Winter workbench will be another Revell USA Peterbilt 359. Always seem to pick one of these up from time to time. As you can see the second picture is the inspiration for my frame. Cab color is up in the air currently. The only thing I’ve done so far is removal of the sleeper ladder steps as I believe they were an option back in the 1980’s. Usually I am one to fret over making the model perfect. Which it generally doesn’t. However not this time as how it comes out is how it comes out. Will be adding the front visor from this website’s parts store. Will post as I go along.
