Well, before I can start my A-100...I'll have to find it!

I honestly have no idea where it could have gone.

I'll still do it, especially as multiples can be done. But for right now, I'm switching to an AMT 1960 Chevy pickup. This will be built as a stock truck, as will the A-100, once I find it.

I need to change my build from a 1950 3100 to a 1955 Cameo.
I hope this doesn't cause you a problem, sorry.

Well, I started with the '60. Most of the parts are in the soap-and-water. Cab and box will have to be done separately due to lack of space in the tub. I'm still trying to decide on the paint color, but I'm leaning towards a solid. The two-tone looks like it's a bit beyond my ability to do and have come out well. If I do get adventurous, I'm leaning towards Imperial Ivory with either Sky Blue or Marlin Blue.

I think I'll jump in this if it's not too late. I'll be building a Revell F-150 Lightning. I won't be starting it til some time in November though.

Either one looks good, but I prefer the rallye wheels. I think they're more in-keeping with a Jeep.
