Re: Kits are missing wheels and axles (nails)

Re: Kits are missing wheels and axles (nails)

I thought he meant pickup trucks. The semi kits for sure had the wheels robbed out of them. They are old style and racers bought up the kits for the 18 wheels. They had no intention of ever doing anything with the big rigs. Actually, these kits were from 2010. These were some of the first wheels ou...

Re: BSA Axles Made in China

No, they were made by Revell, in 2018 Revell went bankrupt. The bankruptcy of Hobbico has led to Revell’s assets being bought by a German investment group, listed in court documents as Blitz 18-313.

Re: Fall TMC Big Rig Challenge

This is super cool, I have built a couple of Big Rigs for the CVSN Pinewood Challenge . It’s amazing they haven’t found a better way to stop these behemoths. Having something for them to crash into doesn’t seem smart. Your trucks were definitely the best looking, some of the others were stacks of 2x...

Re: Pit Road - Car Parking

Here are a couple I have built through the years, I continue to use the second one to this day: Race Display Stand Bulk car transport I am not a big fan of using 1 X 2s on the table as they still seem kind of sketchy if the table is bumped.

2018 car 1962 AMC Metropolitan

In early 2018, I decided to build a pinewood derby car based in a friend's 1962 AMC Metropolitan, street rod.

Re: 2017 car 1974 AMC Javelin

As I remember the setup for holding the car, while chiseling, was an idea I stole from Whoda.
