Did you Pre-Order this item?

Bill Newcomer
I have not, I generally wait until they show up on ebay. I have one of these built in my display case. I bought a vintage Night Stalker but have not gotten to it yet. The Streaker Vette is definitely a nostalgia kit for me. I was my 1st or second "transparent "Candy" paint job.

I love all the 1/43rd scale and have everyone except a few I am on. I actually bought one of these and used for parts lol. I have another one. I looked over my parts and like I said I do not have any k100 frames. I can send you this model if you like?
24 August, 14:28
Jarrett
I wish they made a 1/43 w900 but oh well guess this scale was not popular. The 1/32 scale also not popular but have all of those two except the cab over 9000 ford. Out of all the 1/32 scale the Ford 9000 conventional, cab over 9000 and Mack wrecker are best to build because they actually have engines 🙂

Kyle, Nigel and Dominik, Thank you. 🙂 I ran across the white stripe decals that came with the kit. They would have been a serious disappointment. They are not tapered and have a slight yellow tint to them. I wet sanded the dust bits out of the hood this evening. The paint is still not quite cured yet. The sluff kept trying to tint my white stripes. I need to wait awhile longer before I can tackle the roof ridge.

Very true Bill, and they seem to retain their value too? I'm currently building a Lonestar. It's a Revell boxing, but it's marked up as Moebius on the actual kit. Nice plastic, very little, if any flash, however there's a few moulding lines that need cleaning up. And most definitely, wash all parts well, in your chosen dish soap, before attempting to lay any paint. I've found this kit, very greasy to handle.

Wow awesome. Thank you. Only have room for 24 trailers? Stack them to the ceiling lol. I am under the assumption I need two kits of a model to build one lol.

@Bozzer. Those IH eagles are a pretty penny so they are worth it? I've had mixed success with the Blueprint series model kits
26 April, 03:36
Bozzer
@Jarrett. If I'm honest mate, I'd say that the Eagle 2 was a good kit. It actually didn't take long to build, and the only problem that I had, was a screw up on the paint, and a misunderstanding by myself, with the decals. It's that good, that I tracked down another one. So definitely, treat yourself, if the opportunity arises.

I have two of the racing trailers. One is the Ernie Irvan one and one is the Bill Elliot one. Yes I did steal some of the interior parts for my diorama. My plan (way down the road) is to build one with all the goodies and one closed up. I want to set them up as two nostalgic front engine dragster haulers.

Most everyone has Smart phones theses days. Remember when having a pager was the big thing? Well there were transmitters in radio tower sites that sent the signals to everyone's pagers. My paint booth fan plate was the cooling method for the electronics in the radio cabinet. They are all rated at 14vdc. You could do the same thing with DC fans from a PC.

You can pick up a rangehood as I did
Plenty to pick up for free
Mine is a 2 speed
And if you put a light dimmer on it you can set speed as you like
Build a box out of melamine
Plum it out the windows whed a setup for a clodes dryer
All done for small budget
All can be done for less then 100 aud
I will warn all about uesing a vacuum cleaner
The electrics in a vacuum cleaner is not flame proof
And can egnite fumes burn your house down and in worst case electrocute you
Rangehoods have flameproof electrics

I have 3 helpful hints. 1) sand the cab halves mating surfaces on a large piece of sandpaper taped to a flat surface. This will true them for when they are glued together removing the gaps. 2) Removed the useless ceiling porting of the window glass piece to permit the side windows to adhere to the doors of the cab. 3) File down the upper perimeter of the assembled interior to help it fit into the body without splitting it apart.
