Hello out there,

 

My name's Mark, from Whittier CA. I enjoy building "light commercial" types of vehicles. This is the Ertyl 1950 Chevy pick up. It's basicly box stock, except for the cage which is made from Evergreen stock, as is the padlock on the chain. The seat is covered with masking tape and given the worn look. Weathering is a combination of washes, dry brushing, and chalks. I also build rc scale ship models, but always try to find time to build plastic car/truck models between boat projects. 

 

Hope you like it,

 

Mark
