    That's probably what I'm talking about. It was all the rage, a couple of years ago.
    Use what you know about the world to model…
    Learn from modeling what you don't know about the real world.

    Oh, so you aren't using the 3D scanning method, hence you need to take apart some models. I was hoping you had a scanning setup, as some of the models I was thinking about are worth a bit of wampum... still, something to keep in mind!

    This is a really awesome thread, I may have some ideas for vehicles I'd like to see but I'll have to find examples to use. I'd really like to know more about your process if you don't mind sharing.

    I have two more resin vehicles available. First, a 1951-65 IH M54 5 ton 6x6 army truck kit, consisting of 14 pieces. These are $8.00 each:



    Here it is shown assembled, except for the brass exhaust stack




    Also available is a 2011-15 Ford Explorer ($4.00 each)



    Please send me a PM to place an order or if you need a copy of the updated product listing. I have raised the prices on some of
    the truck kits and all of the bus kits to reflect the material cost and labor that goes in to making them.

    Nice work.
    Not sure I see the differences. Are they (buses) different kits?
    Do you also have the decals?

    Partly a reply to mark this for future use, partly to say: I really like the M35 and soon will have a need for a couple or more of those...
    Nice looking

    The casting is the same between the two, just the included decals are different. The Trailways version includes all of the red areas.
