Hi all,
I managed to find this a few years ago in a charity shop, it used to be a remote control but all the electrics had been removed, anyway, it's been sat in my loft for some time and I thought I'd give it a fresh look...

This is how it used to look, it's not painted, it's just shiny black plastic...









Complete strip down...



Primed and a couple of coats of silver...



The headlights where two holes with bumps in the middle, I left the bump silver and filled the space with Micro Kristal Klear ( Microscale Micro Kristal Klear MSKK )



I stripped the rear bumper...



I then painted in some lights and used the Micro Kristal Klear for the lens...







Drying on the radiator...



Interior Before and after...





I will post the finished photos in the 'Completed' section...

Any and all hints & tips greatly received...

Thank you for looking...

Andy...

I also altered the trailer...

To start with...



Stripped down...



I used two pieces of thin Balsa for the new bed...



Taped up so I could paint the edges, the head-board is also made from Balsa wood...



I will post the finished photos with the finished truck ones...

Again, please let me know what you think and any hints or tips great fully received...

Thank you...
