Si.

As Jose say's, that is a redneckest plow I have ever seen.

It looks like it belong's on the  :moose: :moose: :moose: Rly.


With two plow's I believe I am covered for snow removal,

but I've said that before about locomotive's, tank cars and other rolling stock.

" As Jose say's, that is a redneckest plow I have ever seen "


Hi Guys  :wave:


Well ... if BOTH you AND Jose say it's the redneckest plow EVER ...  :mex:

... who am I to disagree.  ;)


The RIVETing looks like top quality '5 Year Plan' Soviet quality !  :s:

And if they wanna make snow plows, that look like armour plated log cabins ...  :java: :P

They've probably been watching too many 'Beverly Hillbillies' re-runs on The Tube !  :hyp:


I'll have to see what Wolfys friend, Boris from Stalingrad, thinks about it.  L:



- - - - - - -






My stripwood hoard for car building has been getting a bit low recently ...  :f:

... due to all the  M.M.M.M.M.& M.Co.  car building of course !  :P


BUT ... Like manna from Heaven:pop: stripwood has been falling from Outer Space here !!  :shocked:

Where is it all coming from :us: I asked myself ?  L:

My neighbour ...  ROCKET  MAN  !  :shades:





ROCKET  MAN  !  :shades:  has managed to avoid my sophisticated R.A.D.A.R tracking so far ...

... But I strongly suspect, that his secret launch pad is to the South East.  :Salute:



He has been launching an astounding amount of stripwood in my direction lately !  :shocked:

I've managed to gather up  FOURTEEN  FEET  !  of the stuff so far !!  :boogie:

So maybe that NEW tank car frame, can be built after all !  :bg:


Further ballistic launches from  ROCKET  MAN  !  :shades:  are likely as well !  :time:

This dude likes his rockets.  :P

I like FREE strip wood.  :mex:

Hi    Ken  :wave:


That's not the only thing that looks like it belongs on the  M.M.M.M.M.& M.Co.  Rly. !  :old dude:

I finally pulled the trigger (no pun intended !)  ;)  on one of those Armoured Cars.  :Salute:


The Rolls Royce job was a bit of a monstrosity ...  :shocked:

... But the 'Model-T Armoured Car' was a much better size & just as fugly !  :P


Just happened to look on eBay & the price was right at under a £ Tenner.  :thumb:





The Polish company 'RPM' Ford Tfc 1:35 kit & a proto-photo from Google Images.





Just the kinda funky junk that was left over from La Revolucion !  :mex:

VIVA LA KITBASH !


:dt:















No more stripwood from  ROCKET MAN !  found yet, but 14' so far aint bad though ...  :cool:

... & I found a couple of his plastic nose-cones as well, sadly NOT a matching pair.  :f:

You know what I'm thinking of course Ken ... Eh !  ;)

Well apparently TWO guys CAN FIT inside this wheeled, front engined, Model-T sardine can !  :old dude:





Possibly, 'Formula-1' driver-size criteria, might have been needed for the crew !  :mex:

" Jackie Stewart would be proud ! "


Hi Steven  :cb:


Yeah ... The ultra-light aluminium chassis, on the Ford Armoured Car ...  ;)

... get rid of all that awful looking riveted 1/4" steel-plate ...  :td:

... swop out the 'T' motor, for a 3L Ford DFV ...  :pimp:

... BINGO !

Monte Carlo  HERE I COME BABY !  :cool:


- - - - - - -


Anyway ... Back in reality ! (almost) ...  :Crazy:

... My NEW 'Matchbox' Models Of Yesteryear 1:35 diecast pickup arrived ...  :)

... so after driving a few laps of the kitchen table Grand Prix circuit ...

... I snapped a few pix of the race winner & his HIGH SPEED Ford Model-T !  :P




The wheelbase measures correctly for this type of vehicle (I think !) ...  :brill:

... & my Polish 'R.P.M.' 1:35 kit Military WWI Ford Model-T, is the same size as the 'Matchbox'.  :thumb:


Don't forget to allow a bit of 'size-warp' from the cellphone cameras wide-angle-lens ...  L:

... & the fact that Wolfy is standing about 1/2" in front of the pickup !  :P


This all makes a surprising amount of difference ...

... but the 'T's were pretty compact !  :shocked:


Close on a HOT DATE !  :P [whack]

The Polish made 1:35 scale 'Ford Model-T' kit No.35016 made by 'R.P.M.' ...  :old dude:

... mentioned in the previous ^^ Post.  :)





I have mostly assembled mine, sans roof at present ...  L:

... It's a fairly simple, low parts count, 'old-skool' style 1:35 scale kit.  :P
