  1. My wife bought me these AMT 1/25th scale kits for a belated birthday present. l know this is a far cry from posts about the Booger Creek gin but kinda excited about it. ln the past (maybe mid 70's) l had 3 of the D8 kits. l'm sort of anxious to build the Transtar and do it in a paint scheme like the real Transtar when l first started hauling crude oil all those long years ago. The three kits total almost 800 parts so once l start building them it will take a while. l don't know how to do videos but l will post photos as l work on them if you guys would be interested.
  2. All you have to do is change your name to Juan or Jose....maybe Pedro.

  4. Over the years l've seen a lot of graffiti on rail cars and a lot of it was actually pretty good art work. And one that has surprised me is that a lot of what l've seen wasn't obscene or vulgar.....usually just humorous. But bridges and overpasses are a different story......
  5. l've ordered 4 different items from 4 different places in the past 3 weeks. 2 arrived the day tracking said they would, the other 2 arrived a day earlier than tracking said they would. All shipped via UPS. I also feel l'm really fortunate to have a really excellent mail carrier and l've never had a reason to complain about my mail service. You got that right!! l'll take UPS over FedEx any day.
  6. OBG, kinda odd you posted the pic of the B-17 with the nose blown off. saw a article about it just a few days ago. Said it was the result of a direct hit by flak. l've also seen a pic of a B-17 with almost the entire tail shot off and it still brought her crew home. And the tailgunner survived. They interviewed a WWII bomber pilot and he said that when they were assigning crews most wanted to fly in B-17's because were tougher than the others like B-24's and Lancasters.
  7. l've seen some of the Amadas machines running from a distance took some pics. Maybe you can explain what the "shakers" do? l'm guessing they shake dirt and trash from the peanuts?
  8. That is a Amadas peanut combine. Most peanut combines around here are self propelled. A Amadas self propelled is built on a JD chassis. This pic was taken near Rule, Texas several years ago. Here in west central Texas, cotton is usually started being planted by late April to early May and starts being harvested by mid to late September. But that varies quite a bit by region. Cotton is already being planted in south Texas.
  9. Tony, you may have already said, but what color will the finished cab be and will the bed be the same color?
  10. lf you are on Facebook, look up a group called Pirate Farm Toys. A great group of guys that do a lot of custom building. lf any of them don't have what you need, they can probably put you on the right track to find it.
  11. They were among our favorites back in high school. My cousin still races and painted his GTX like Sox and Martin's.
  12. Even though it's about those things with green and yeller wheels, l like this one because it reminds of two things....this guy sounds a lot like George Strait. And second, it's the story of a lot of farm kids....which a few grow up to be tractor collectors....😀 Danny Hooper - John Deere Tractor Keys - YouTube
  13. Might be better off with this "self propelled unit"..... Donkey spraying pesticides. Funny video 😂 - YouTube
  14. l quit watching nascar when they started changing the rules every week to ensure they could GIVE jimmie johnson his 7th championship.
  15. Might trade that 'ol galvanized tin wagon for a newer model Jeep-A-Bago. Might even get the propane fired model like in the pic.
