Anyone making scale (24th?) moonshine products?
Posted by 195X on Sunday, March 8, 2020 1:35 PM

I searched for years for the Revell truck kit "Bear Bait". Kept getting a Vega! (?) Come to find out recently the old memory box wasn't working right and the kit's name is "Big Ten Ford" and "Bear Bait" appears as part of the decal sheet. 

I have an idea, that involves that particular decal, a girl figure, and a moonshiner's diorama wrapped around it. With all that blather out of the way...

Does anyone know of a maker doing moonshiner's items like Mason jars, moonshine jugs or even a scale still?

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

Good question, however I think that you'll have to use your scratch building skills to make those items your lookin' for. I've been in this hobby for many years and never have come across any moonshine making stills, etc.

Your best bet is to scratch build many of the moonshine items that you need.  Just like the real moonshiners, they scratch build their still and other items.  If you have any doubts about the look of an item, try watching Moonshiners on the Discovery Channel and look at their equipment.

The AMT Beverly Hillbillies truck has a couple of jugs with Granny's "medicine". Just get one and resin cast as many as you need. An empty soda can and some copper wire should put you on your way to a still. Dont forget some scale bail money!
