Default It Doesn't Fly but will Deliver Models!

Hi All:

Well I am still at it with the trucks. Can't help it, I love the damn things! The local truckers must think I am nuts asking them all kinds of questions about "glad hands", air brakes, reefers, and all else things truck. Here are some pics of the Revell K-100 Aerodyne. It's a great kit and has a full engine and transmission. Some kits just give you the basic truck without the engine. Some give you the whole nine yards, as this one does.





More coming on this one. Even custom seat covers!

Default FINISHED!

Hi all:

This one has taken a bit longer than expected. The right paint, decals and such. Used a flat green and then glossed it. Didn't come out to bad...












Gloss paint has always been a pain for me, but I think I have a solution for it. Check out this and see if this is OK. Added a bit more thinner than normal and it went down like glass. Hope you all like...

Hi Devo:

Thanks. Yes they are leopard skin covers. Decals from Scale motorsport in Newton, Conn. Also on www.scalemotorsport.com. Fitting them to the seats was interesting. The decal is all one piece. I just cut them out a bit larger than I needed and trimmed them back after some solvaset. You can find tiger skin also. Now the fun part will be finding a spot for these monsters.

Nice looking KWhopper. That particular kit seems hard to find, unless they have started squeezing it again like they did the Freightliner cabover. About the only one I don't have is the Mack Cruiseliner. I used to drive them, now my only interest is to model them.

Spaz,

After seeing your truck I had to go get one myself.

My K-100 Aerodyne kit arrived today and I can't wait to get into it.

I had never considered building a truck before.... even stranger seeing as I'm a truck driver with my current employer

I also have a Kenworth W-925 on its way, just to keep the 'Dyne' company......Thanks
Regards,
Devo
