Well, here she is! I still have to paint the windshield wipers (I can't believe I forgot them!), and someday when the sun cooperates, I'll get more outside pics to gawk at, Thanks for following along, and enjoy the pics! More pics can be found on my Fotki page, just click on the link!

Thanks guys, I wish I had the time and desire to have done everything I wanted, but life just gets in the way sometimes. It came out looking great, and what I had planned can be done on the next one of these I do, whenever that is! It's a great kit, so I plan on building another one someday!

OH THAT'S SWEET ! lf l HAD to change anything, l would add the front bumper, but that's just personal choice & certainly doesn't detract from the beauty or workmanship of this gem ! Kudos, Mike ! Bart

It turned out beautiful!  The first two pictures look like a real full size truck.  I watched along with most of your build and the end result is awesome.  The real wood in the bed got me hooked, then the chains, and the screw on gas cap.  What a detail artist you are!  We need an engine picture here.  Congratulations on a beautiful model. Happy New Year, can't wait to see your next project.

Sam, I still have a certain Duster here, and it just asked for those same tail lights.....

 

Ron, ask and you shall receive!

To be honest, I didn't quite get the tail lights at first but, they grew on me, and now I think they finish the awesome look. Oh, and thanks for the engine pictures Mike, they are equally awesome as well as the chassis shot, brings back more memories of the amount of detail.

Thanks guys, I'll have some more pics in a few days, I painted the windshield wipers, and removed the side mirrors and repainted them body color, so once they're all dry, I'll snap some fresh pics!
