|While looking through our volumes
of reference photos & materials recently, we realized that many
of you could benefit from these photos as well, so we decided to
make them available online. So welcome to our new Reference section!
We will start with digital photos of trains, trucks, 4x4s, SUVs,
and other vehicles that we have taken over the years, and then move
into scanned documents and print photos. We are currently combing
our thousands of film negatives for suitable photos to have reproduced
on Photo CDs in digital format, to save us the time of manually
scanning these one by one. We hope that these may be useful and
beneficial for your modeling projects.
Silver State Specialties was created in 1999 to offer quality resin
accessories, replacement parts and conversion kits, suitable for
many 1/25-scale plastic model kits. SSS specializes in accessories
and parts for plastic model pickup, SUV, 4x4, and heavy truck &
trailer kits. 1/32-scale and 1/35-scale parts and accessories
will be available in the future for model truck kits, such as the
1/32 Monogram Snap-Tite and ERTL snap-together kits, as well as
1/35-scale Revell, Italeri, AFV Club, Trumpeter, Airfix, Heller,
Tamiya, and other military model truck kits. Some of these
smaller scale model kits are quite well detailed, and a wide variety
of photo-etched, resin, and
other accessories are widely available for most of these military
truck model kits. What's even more exciting is the line of 1/24th
& 1/25th-scale military model kits and conversions we are in
the early stages of developing, to nicely compliment your ERTL,
AMT, Italeri, Revell, and other brands of truck models.
Silver State Specialties is working on resin accessories and complete
kits for G- gauge outdoor garden railway trains ("Large Scale")
in 1/24th-scale. Some patterns have been completed, and many more
are under construction. These kits and accessories will include
complete Beyer-Garratt style of locomotives and Narrow Gauge ore
hopper cars, as well as 24-inch & 30-inch gauge industrial equipment
in this same scale.
SSS also has master patterns partially completed for many 1/16-scale
model truck accessories and conversion kits, mainly for the Monogram-Revell
1/16-scale model truck kits. Some projected accessories for
these 1/16-scale kits are front drive axles, different wheels and
tires, air cleaner accessories, pusher and tag axles, oil filters
and engine accessories, and possibly different engines. Cab
& hood conversion kits remain a possibility for these monsters
as well, but are still years away from being offered as there are
more pressing projects to push forward with first. But someday
they should be available!
Thank you for your continued support!
