Tyrone Malone's Hideout Truck
Posted 17 September 2010 - 03:13 PM
The truck was painted Tamiya French blue for the frame and undercarriage, and flat black for the body. I then painted Tamiya clear blue over the black to give it a glossy blue tint. I also did this to the Bandag Bandit on the rear deck. I managed to use the kit decals, but added P.U.C. stickers to the drivers wing window and AMT logos. This is the last of the four AMT Tyrone Malone trucks I had to build for my collection. This one I worked on off and on for over 6 months because I got so frustrated with the brittleness of the plastic and the fit problems mentioned about. I may do the Boss truck of America and Mama truck in the near future. I have a spare Super Boss in the closet for parts just in case.

With the quality Round II puts into these old kits, it would be worth it. And Bill, you did a tremendous job with this old KW. Very nice!
Sure wish AMT would bring these back for one run only?
