I am not interested in the mud splattered, weathered look that many of you folks like to do. I don't like the beaten up, worn out look...it just doesn't do anything for me.
My builds are glossy and shiny!


Yeah, mrmike. I'm with you. SHINY :) :) :) RULES!

Mike, I back you on the wheels. I have several of these kits and only one has the stock rims/rubber. The rest are aftermarket units and I like it that way. Soldier on with YOUR build. If others don't like the rims you chose, let them build their own version and stop grousing about your build.

I like following your builds Mike - usually a no nonsense affair and clean construction.

I have looked at and left the LWR kit a few times - your build may convince me to finally buy another one.

Sorry...no progress since I am very busy at work for 12-15 hours days. If there was any progress made, I would have posted it. As I have previously stated, this will be a slow build and done the way I want it...custom wheels and all!

Mike.....First I think you should do a and put a and even maybe some and for the rest of it I think you should do it with a and then some but only if you use that type when used with a larger but smaller version of the one that didn't come with it on the other kind that would work well with it to make it an awesome model..........................or ya could just do it your way ;)

Hey Mike,
I wasn't trying to be pushy or influence YOUR choice of wheels. Just anxious to see this thru as I am attempting the same build & I assume you are more talented than I, as I have only completed only 1 model in over 30 years. I didn't mean to offend anyone. If I did,.I apologize. PLEASE keep this going!!!!!

The upcoming Classic Plastic Model Club show in September, 2012 will once again have a Club Challenge. This time it will be pickup trucks...built anyway you want. I threw my hat into the ring with a 1950 Ford F1, but I changed my mind after a few days after seeing a Dodge A100 factory stock build elsewhere. I was influenced to try my hand at an A100. This kit has been in my stash for a while and I have been needing an opportunity to built it. This will be a slow build since this is for the Club Challenge and I want to get this one right, especially after hearing stories about the door hinges. I have a Overhaulin' look in mind.

I have a set of Pegasus Chrome T's for this build. Let's see if I can get them to fit.

I am undecided on the color right now. I'm thinking of copper, metallic brown, fiery orange...or maybe Hemi Orange! We shall see...

More to come...

Hemmi Orange

Bart, you didn't offend me. I personally think that posting "Any progress yet?" type of replies is kind of rude. But, somehow I didn't get that from your posting. As I have stated in my opening post, this will be a slow build as I have 9 months to complete it for the Classic Plastic Model Club show in September. If you were hoping for something of a quicker build, then you will be disappointed. This build will not stop, it's just going to take a while to do. I hope you are patient...

Bart, to there are those who don't care if you have manners or not, I consider it to be polite to others.

I have decided on a color for my A100...Testors One Coat Fiery Orange. I know that I have had issues with this paint in the past on my '32 Ford Sedan Street Rod. Maybe I can do a better job with it this time around.

I had started cleaning up the body of mold lines and flash when I decided to do a mock up and to see if the wheels and tires would fit within the wheelwells. That is a definite YES!

These wheels are gonna look great!
