How can something that's basically just a big box look so cool? I don't know, but it's possible. I'm definitely getting one of these now, but I can only hope mine will turn out as well as yours!

In the immortal words of Capt. Malcom Reynolds, "SHINY!"

 

I like it a lot!!!

 

I'm right there with you, Chuck! It is possible! :) B) Personally, and no reflection on this build, Dan; I think the LS1000 was one ugly truck... But, they certainly had a distinct, no-nonsense, brutish cool factor. This is the second one I've seen built up recently and I can say that I wouldn't mind adding one to my collection.

Chuck and Chris I'm with you it's the bullish affect that I like and it is a MOPAR.
JT thanks for the comments don't know if you Remember meeting me last March at the model show in Missouri City you had your Ford dump truck on display.
Dave this is a very good resin kit there was very little customization to make the fit up to the Titan doner. The resin is about the same thickness as what a plastic one would be.

Thanks for all the comments from everyone. Michael your friend is off to a very nice build on the Dodge and the Crackerbox looks nice. You should have the GMC posted here with some more pictures of it.

Mopar Dan, your truck looks great, love the stripes, nice work! Man the cabovers were just big boxes at one time, look at the Ford W9000, the Dodge L1000, the Kenworth K100 and the GMC "Crackerbox", older Whites from the 60's to early 70's. Makes them distinctive today!

Could you persuade your friend to post some pictures of his work here? He is doing some very good work. The Dodge is looking good and that GMC looks very interesting!
