This is a promo model that I modified a little. I came across a resin hood at a model show. I did not want to repaint the whole truck because I liked the blue it was molded in. My solution was a two-tone paint scheme. The top is Testor's german silver and clear, the bottom is raw plastic. The grand-sport style stripes are small strips of reflective trailer tape. The bumpers were all paint detailed.Posted Image

The interior recieved a black-wash and some paint detailing along with a parts box cb radio.

I built a sub box for the back of the interior out of sheet plastic.

I wanted this to be a tow rig, so out back I built a tow hitch out of square stock. I also added a custom exhaust. All the trim was foiled and the weather stripping was hand painted. I also gave the wheels a black-wash.
