Re: Hobbs Reefer From a Tamiya Semi Trailer

Your trailer looks awesome. The mud flaps are a great detail. I saw that Exclusive had some stenciled mud flaps but I didn't see the Hobbs logo. I'll have to ask about them. The trailer mural also...

Re: Hobbs Reefer From a Tamiya Semi Trailer

Thanks! I think if I did it again, which I will to the other box trailer, I would move the axles further back another half inch or so. Did you find Hobbs Anti-Sail decals for the mudflaps? I am...

Re: This sucks!!

I had a UPS driver leave a large box for me inside my open garage bay door. I didn't notice it until the next day. Several people were home. No one heard the door. It was Christmas season and I think...

Re: Hello from Illinois

Hi Bill. The Globe looks good and holds a lot of potential. You'll learn a lot by hanging around here and getting your hands dirty.

Re: King Hauler - Yet another W900

Thanks espee. I used Tamiya masking tape and Tamiya TS paints. The tape is thin, easy to work with, and comes in varying widths. Tamiya paint is more like automotive paint which is much thinner than...

Re: King Hauler - Yet another W900

Finally got to a point where I could get more paint work done. I went back to primer to get rid of some horrid spider webbing. I was hoping that it would look good from 10ft. but it actually looks...

Re: Hardware questions..

Yes! Especially nuts and common lengths such as 6mm and 12mm. My son and I go through about $100 in fasteners per year. I know this because that's my average annual order.
