I got them from a 1:32 scale truck I had around that was falling apart. It was a snap kit. From a long time ago.

Thanks, Clay. I kinda figured they were 1/32 scales, but those are the best I've seen from a snap kit!

Actually, I remember now it was one of those kits that you screw together.

Another 55 pickup. I have a twist on it.. Posted Image I chopped and painted it a couple of years back, but put it away. So thanks to Clay and Tonio...I've got the urge again. So what is different. Well I had it painted and it looked like a blob..a bright purple blob. Posted Image So into the pond it went and came out back the way it was. So I've Z'd the rear frame and cut out the bed, made a wooden bed for it, cut the running boards and refit the floor and cab. I also reversed the tailgate, cut out pockets in the rear where a pair of 52 caddie taillights will poke out. I've also fitted the trailer hitch to it, needs to be finished and attached.

This is where I started...


Posted Image

got it stripped down re did the hood hinge , shaved the running boards, and lowered the body in the rear and made a wood bed for it

i have a partially build pick'm'up truck that i started for a different CBP

i beleive the 4 rules of that build were
1 has to be a truck made after 1960
2 has to have a stock bed
3 has to be a V8 engine
4 has to be done before the dead line


here is what my entry was

Posted Image

Posted Image


its a 1956 VW bug converted to a front engine rear wheel drive pick'm'up with a custom turbod GTI swap and scratchbuild bed
(my initial entry was a joke just ragging on the rules and whoever was in charge allowed it because of how ridiculous it is)

clearly i managed to break every rule


woudlnt hurt to finish this one :rolleyes:
