Absolutely first class detailing and weathering, no area looks under- or overdone.

This is starting to look a lot like one of those "OLD NAVY" trucks. I love the weathering, like everybody else, especially on the interior. You have the dirty in all the right places! Love your work!!!! :wub:

after dislocating my elbow, i am now healed enough to get back into the truck. its amazing how much a right elbow is needed for hobbies. lol
the cab is now in place, with the firewall and inner guards glued and weathered. so that should be everything under the bonnet done, or should i say "hood"??

it has come to pass that i have actually finished a hobby project. As i said at the beginning of the thread, this is my first 'auto' build after a lot of years, so it was decided to keep it with no mods whatsoever.
here is a pic of the final product. i will take more pics, and add them to the "under glass" section soon.

thinking my next project should be a clean one, so i may do a mid to late 30's ford pickup, or what we like to call in aus, a ute.
