That is a great looking truck, but I'm curious about the pink frame, that can't be factory so why pink?

Once a truck leaves the factory, anything goes when it comes to color!

I saw a 1:1 truck going down the highway with this scheme. It actually looks rather good. Also on the sleeper of this truck it said "Dads Pad when Mom gets Mad". So I would assume the drivers wife had a lot of input on the color the 1:1 was painted.

Great looking rig, Doc! The color combo works for me. Was the paint job complicated to do? I tried to paint a truck yellow recently with a MM spray bomb, the coverage was horrible. This looks great! Dan

The paint was not hard to do at all. The frame is from a tamyia spray bomb, and the yellow was air brushed. Keep in mind that when doing yellow prime the model with white primer.
