I like what loaded heavy said. It would be nice if soneone did resin parts like long hood, ultra cab roof or even a whole pete cab. An ais roof for sleeper or even a whole sleeper kit with ais roof or flat top with choices of coffin up to 70". Could even do the same with w9 stuff ie hood and areodyne sleeper. I know all of this is available for 1/24 scale and im not tryin to take away from the modeling part just tryin to get rid of some sanding dust. Lol

Hokay...

Parts not offered yet (or not found)

- metal replacements for Tamiya flatbed 'stakes' and stake-mounts (got metal rails, need metal supports!)

- metal replacements for the plastic in the stock Tamiya bull-bars - how many would like to replace just those w/o replacing the whole unit?

- metal replacement mudflap mounts (the Tamiyas tend to flex/bend)

- a good Oshkosh HEMTT cab, M35 milspec cab, or even a CCKW-353 (early 40's) cab, for us military chassis guys (the German MAN KAT & Faun ones are SO expensive, OY!)

Memory knows there are more, brain is a bit sluggish ATM. Let the brains wander, guys, you'll think of stuff.

AH, that was one I missed...

- a new kind of 'hubcap'... one that would end up covering the whole inner cavity of the wheel, like many automotive hubcaps do. Think like the milSpec ones on the HEMTT's and such, or the ones on the APC in Aliens, or the ones on the RT's (the 8x8's) in 'Prometheus'.

They ~could~ be flat and unmarked - think of those old extender-axle stubs they made for the the Tamiya buggies. You attach the hub-cover to a threaded bolt, and weld/braise/whatever, and it just screws into the extension, instead of the extended axle. Sure there are a few other ways to make them...

Thoughts?

I think I have a simpler 'hubcap' solution, but not gonna threadjack, so moving it.

Please read if you're interested, and gimme opinions.

And NO, Admin, I'm NOT gonna become a vendor for these. Don't have the facilities for it. Besides, this method is DIY.

Edit: oh ~bother~, where should I put it?

I'd like to see some options for grilles for CoE trucks. But not direct replacements, more properly sized, narrower and styled like you'd see on a K100:


Or even plain but narrower:



Also like to see some light bars for under cabs/sleepers. Garden trucking do a sleeper one, but it includes yellow LED's (no good if you dont want yellow, and rather pricey), plus i think they're too thin to drill out for Lynns bezels. I'm trying to make some of these at the moment and they're driving me mad.

Some new cabs for sure, imo just not enough out there and some of us arent as talented as others...

Some options for palletized loads (like chem totes maybe)

Military themed accessories (having a hellacious time trying to find the stuff I need for a M916 or M939)
