Well got started on her yesterday and had to get rid of those box lines.

I'm thinking Tu-tone and weathered so if you have any ideas throw them out their and I might use them ???

Off and running. 4X4, not sure on the colors but the rusting should be cool. I guess jsut about any to colors would work together.

Great start Walt. Is it going to be that high? Looks good. at that height.

Give it plenty of dings and scratches!!

Walt: I like the idea of a beater. Lots of dents and surface rust are cool. I'm personally not wild about a two-tone on this body style.

I'm curious to see how this one differs from the Monogram version. Good start on it. Keep it coming!

Ok well progress has been a little slow as I have been trying to learn how to use the rusting solution, but got the cab corners done and engine almost done



Had to pin the exhaust so they would mate up better


Tailgate is all fitted

I know what you mean. We're constantly trying to keep it at bay on our 1:1 stuff and here we are cheering it on in scale!

That blue looks spectacular! Can't to see what the other color is going to be. I'm gonna have to see if Hobby Lobby or Michael's carries that Mod-Podge. Looks like great stuff. 8)

Well here is a quick update I got the chassiss all done the pinstrip on with a little cleanup to do and the dash all done in leather and wood inlay painted along with the seats and console and still working on the bucket.




Almost forgot the master cylinder lines ran.
