I got this kit at a yard sale back in October for $5.00!!! I started building it the day before xmas to keep me busy over vacation from work. Unfortunately I could not use the decals as they have yellowed pretty badly.

Thank you all for the kind comments,I really appreciate it!!! I uploaded the pics to photobucket so they would show up large and show the detail here ,but I guess the forum downsizes them by default?

It was the first time I had ever seen a kit at a yard sale. I was actually driving past it and saw the big box in the yard,I then whipped a massive U-turn and went back to get it,lol. Check antique shops and flea markets also,I have seen a good bit of kits at those places but the prices are usually more than what I'd be willing to pay.

Very nice clean work.  Love the color combo & finish.  I agree with the others, you did not need the decals.

It's a fun kit george, The boat was more difficult than the truck was to build. On the parts tree for the boat the amount of flash was the most I have ever seen on parts in my 20+ years of modelling,lol. I had a few fitment issues with it also.

Nice. 

 

It would look even better had you painted the underside of the interior tub so you did not have bare white plastic showing around the transmission.  Something to consider next time.
