Nice truck, and you are an quick builder

i do quick i have no patience. anyway got the fenders painted and on, the stacks on sorta, and im working on getting the hood to sit level i figured out the tray behind the windshield wipers is what the hood sets on and is molded way too high. blurry picture though.0105131610_zps56de21d9.jpg

Got this for christmas yesterday along with a monogram 40 ford hotrod. thinking about doing it like thisattachicon.giflonestar1.pngattachicon.giflonestar2.png or like my peterbilt which if youve seen before is usally hauling cars. It is a good deal longer than my pete and has twice as many pieces. and seeing how we are getting blasted with a blizzard as i type the frame and body wont have any paint for a while.attachicon.gif1226121311.jpgattachicon.gif1226121312.jpgattachicon.gif1226121312a.jpgattachicon.gifdddd.png

Oh man, that'll like gorgeous!!!!!!

Thanks. well when you have a 2 week winter break with nothing to do but eat build and fill out job applications you get a lot of building done. got most the body done need to do that little wrath they call lights. and i have decided after looking at all the pictures of built lonestars that my hood is sitting normal for the kit other than the moebius promo picture on their instructions. oh yah and my dad just signed up for these forums yesterday he is oldguy70 with only one post its a 71 cuda in the underglass car section. he spent like 2 years building the thing with scratchbuilding and detailing included.
