I built this one a while ago, but I can't remember if I posted it here before. If I have, sorry.
I started with an AMT '50 Chevy, after modifying the cab I built 4 different beds before I settled on the '60 Starliner.

Looks like the Skyliner's hood was repurposed as the roof skin, too. Very cool.

This is spectacular! Mark took the words out of my mouth as to how everything flows from one panel to another and the whole works together beautifully.

This should be in the dictionary for the definition of "Custom". Awesome work, excellent proportions, you have quite a knack for design!

Wow! Very nice customizing work! It's radical, but not bizarre, as some customs seemed to be "back in the day". It's just about perfect!

Sweet 60's styled Chevy! I like that look, lots of body modifications, that frontend and Starliner rear are looking very good and they fit nicely to the cab of the pickup. Paintjob is very nice too and wheels and tires are just perfect choice to this one. Thank you for sharing it. Any pictures from the engine or interior? :D

Thanks everybody, this was one of the most involved models I ever built. I spent so much on it I nicknamed it XSF.

Yup. They're a bit small, they're from an old photobucket account.
