I really like the opening doors, but man this lack luster flat-head is going in the "round file". Not much leeway for box stock builders either.

It does however have some rather cool decals for the wood bed planks and metal strips. There are also decals for the side boards.
I like the rolled and pleated molded in headliner......not sure about the button tufted bench seat and door panels though.

After doing the touchy feel thing with this kit and formulating a cocktail napkin sketch of what I plan to do with mine.....I have a bunch of parts left over.
About all I'm using from the kit is the cab, hood and front fenders.
I really have no use for the rest of it and no desire to save any of it....that includes the flathead & pick-up box.
Soooooo, to get to the point, if any of you F.A.S.T. members (building a '40) needs any of those parts for your build.....let me know and I'll bring them to the next meeting........no cost or anything owed.
I'll also be bringing a tool with me that I wouldn't be without....it's called a nibbler. It's cheap to buy (mine was under 10 bucks) and durable as all get out. I'll bring some scraps of sheet plastic so that anyone interested can give it a try........use it once and you'll come up with all sorts of uses for it.

That nibbler sounds interesting. Don't forget we have the BMF workshop.

It would be kinda cool (if we manage to get our horsepower show together) to display them at the Castro Farm.
I've started mine.....but man, I just have to say I've worked with better kits.......it's going to take some serious head scratchin' to turn this one around.

I've started it and am not impressed with the kit. Goodbye hood louvers.

Took a little side trip after the meeting to check out the personal collection of one of the fellow members and was blown away by the sheer number of models (built and unbuilt) Nascar and other car memorabilia and his 1:1 mint condition Trans Am Pace Cars stored in the garage. I should have brought the camera in to document but was so overwhelmed by everything to see that I totally spaced that.
