    It's in Boba Flint's ID map (CO-4070A) - and I'm bidding on the only one on eBay - so back off :-P

    I will have all the parts we need for the models professionally pressure cast!

    Ooops, i shouldve been more clear, i meant the drag trucks rear wheel, there are a few videos on you tube.(Tyrone malone)
    The truck runs custom rims.
    It may not be it but it was a shot.

    Is part 62 the same as part 6 either with a bit in the middle or drilled out?

    Looks that way Jestefarean.

    So who won the Transtar truck?

    Anyone have kit scans of the 1/48 Lunar spacecraft, Ertl transtar truck, 1/48 Hawk crusader ?

    I didn't win the Transtar, but found some parts rack pics. Looks like part 6 and 62 could be on the second pic, and that sure looks like the hub to me.

    Need a closeup of the engine block. Actually need closeups of all those sprues. I just noticed the suspension airbags are used on the Y wing on the engines.

    Also have the Hawk - but it was mostly assembled. Not many parts! Whew!

    No no dude...I wasn't bidding on it....what I meant was, while I didn't win it (nor did I bid on it since you posted) I was on the hunt for pics. *I didn't want to sound like I had won it. Nice find on that kit whoever figured it out.

    Come on Jason. Rip those bags open and scan that puppy. It's only $150.
    Can you tell if the Y wing nose is in there?

    Congrats Jason!

    I should have the Revell Mercury/ Gemini kit by the end of the week. I'll scan it for everyone.

    A couple more maps.

    While we wait on better scans, here is a pic from the instructions of the engine block...if it's the piece, it does look like it really could be #15 to me. The mount points line up...

    The transtar engine block is the part needed. I have the kit. It has parts for the T-16 and Y-wing.
    No need to look for another kit.

    Boba, aren't the parts on the engine block that you didn't highlight also on the transtar? On the black sprue.
