I really like the way this angle shows how the combination of the repositioned front wheels and the seriously pie-cut hood lighten the look of the front of the truck. Here you can also see the removable trailer hitch. Except for the taillights, the license plate and a few other details, this one is almost done.

I agree. the work on the front fender and hood really paid off from this angle (as well as from the front view). Really sophisticated and atrractive surface development. I'm still waiting for the payoff on the backside when you add the detail, as pretty as the basic curvature is! :unsure:

Actually, I just got a new display case from my friend, Al, so I have PLENTY of room...for now.

Besides, I'm still waiting to see you finish your hauler and trailer for the Avanti. :unsure:

Thanks, Bernard!

I may get the back done today on the hauler and the trailer. I'm in the process of making the taillights for both of them. They're made by cutting the custom taillights from the AMT '57 Ford in half, adding a small piece of plastic to finish off the end where they're cut, then BMF and a bit of red paint.

I'm working on it. I got the cab worked out I think. But I think I messed up the frame though, trying to get the rims I wanted on it. :blink:

Clay,
Send me an email with some pics of what you've got and I'll see if I can help you get it sorted out.

I will when I get a chance. I might just get a lightning kit and do like you did.

Let me know if you need any instruction on what I did. I really didn't use all that much from the Lightning kit on the hauler.
