Sweet Models Dan!!!
I love that BEAUTIFUL looking Mack Dump Truck :thumb: :thumb:
Also, my latest build - not sure how it's going to work out, but it's a 1:87 version of the Bluth Company Stair Car from the show Arrested Development
Dan that is an awesome project:thumb:
here are the rest of my collection
and some more:mrgreen:
Well this is the end of my collection at this point in time sorry for the over postingsign1
Junkyard Packard Motor progress
The V12 motor for the 34 Packard is about done. All it needs now is a distributer, starter, & some plugs & wires on one side. And of course to be cut off its "tree" . Oh, almost forgot, they had a big oil filler tube on the drivers side , thats a must.
Found the perfect wheels!!
I finally found just what I need to build rims to fit the O-ring tires.
Found 2 things actually , both have a perfect "lip' to be the edge of the rim.
one is a 10/24 or 10/32 thin metal"anchor nut" the other is part of the insulator on a 10-12 guage wire terminal. The anchor nut just needs to be cut to proper width, but the terminal must have the lip filed down a bit as it's a bit thick.
The centers are made from the aluminum of a disposable baking tin.
I think that for HO scale a 8/32 nut & a 16-14 ( blue) terminal would be about the right size.
Who says you can't get anything for a buck?
Picked this up at Wally-World for just that.
Yes, this one will get a driver also.
More Wally World rides...these are found with the 1:144 scale tanks and are near perfect N scale. Not bed for a buck 97...
Those are nice!
I still have a couple of Micro-Machines amoured vehicles that I used for flat car loads when I was into N scale. They were painted in wild bright colored camo paint, but a can of Testors Model Master "Forest Green" took care of that. That was before the Army started painting everything Desert Sand
Here's a pic of the Micro Machines armoured vehicles that I used for flat car loads when I was doing Nscale.
This is a refriderator truck I kitbashed from an N scale tractor, and an N scale Refridgerated container
I guess there are alot more options out there for N scale than I thought there was.
I won a Caterpillar 920 wheel loader in 1/50 scale today off ebay since I collect a few others than HO. I figured I needed a beavertail trailer to haul it and my backhoes around. I dont have a truck, but the trailer is a start. Here are some pictures.
Heres the finished product less ramps. Its 1/50th scale but I still figured I could post it here, theres no size requirement.
Thats too cool Kevin, i really like it, nice job on it :thumb: :thumb:
The Packard V 12 is DONE -- not the whole car -- just the V 12 motor.
Take a look-- Here are a few pics of it both in & out of the car. This is 1/64 or S scale & is to be part of a Junkyard diorama.
Little Construction fun and some close-ups
HEY THAT LOOKS GOOD!!
What did you use for your road stripes?
Cool bridge too. Is that a kit??
I also like the wood on the top of the dump truck.. nice addition since boley doesnt do that on the production trucks.
