okay, I am having a problem with my website software.
Can't seem to properly update the website.
Images are not uploading and loading properly.
Links might be there...but pages seem to be screwing up.
Bear with me.

I just downloaded the Milk Delivery truck
weirdest thought went through my mind, it kinda looks like an Apollo command module and the part where the lander is housed, repaint to an Apollo commemorative version for the all the men who have lost their lives in the race to space.

yes! yes!
I saw that too when building the prototype...it looks like a capsule from the front.

but its not! shut it. and build it.

dammit Jim...I'm a Milkman, not a Space Jockey!



...............
oh, and I got the site uploaded.
I redesigned the Specialz page to accomodate new model topics...and I lost the extraz page in the process! lol I found it again.
For a moment, it really was a "vacuous" website.

Dave,
Very cool milk truck! I had to pick it up. I wonder if I can reduce it to 1:100 and still have the ability to assemble it.

Dave, I just downloaded the Milk truck and Wienermobile. Mauther's Hillbilly Snail is the only automotive type of vehicle that I've ever built. These are nice and they look like fun to make. Thank you.

I struggled to match the Milk Bottle to the Chassis/Fenders/Running Boards of the truck.
Then I noticed in photos that the Milk Bottle didn't fit on the real thing.
Filler pieces had been used to fill various gaps.
The Bottle doesn't necessarily contact at all locations (with the chassis).
So I decided not to worry, and I recut the hole in the chassis that receives the Milk Bottle
to make it a much simpler assembly.
Now, just center the Bottle and glue the central chassis tabs to it.

Other than some very small parts, reducing to 1/100 scale should not be too difficult.
I'd say the model is currently in the 1/50 to 1/60 range?
So, you would be shrinking by about half.

Next KoolWheelz model is ready to go...

same deal as before, I want to see some activity.
A couple of builds of the Milk Truck would be nice.
Even half built would be cool.

I just want to get people involved and see that I am not just producing models for hoarders.
I want to know people are enjoying building my models!

lol

But I know that some of you are preparing for the upcoming IPMC
and dealing with life and other work...
so you guys get a pass (if you need it).

Its only Wednesday...lets see if we can put out another model next weekend.

Dammit! the Fold legend is reversed on the Milk Truck.

My Mountain Folds are always dashed lines.
Valley Folds are dotted.

....

I forgot to add, there is an Assembly sheet for this one too!
It'll be available in the koolWheelz section at my forum.
