Thanks for the kind words guys. A bit of an update for you fellas. Got the rolled up tarps assembled and attached to the roof rack. I also added a chain on the passenger side of the cab but it still needs weathering. The actual hook was carved from a rivet shaft. Taillights are made, just need to make some red lenses for them. And I built a step and painted it the color of the truck. At this point, the exterior is mostly complete with the exception of some weathering and the lenses. I may make a couple of wooden storage boxes to go on each running board towards the rear fender. I'm also redoing one of the exterior posters because its too pixelated.

A couple of shots to share.

Thanks Wesley, Jim, Bryan, Andy and Dan. Some more bench time in and a few more details have been completed. Made a wooden box for the running board, just need to decide which side to put it on. Made a shovel out of printing plate with a balsa wood handle. Weathered it and made a double hook for it on the driver's side. Also weathered the chain and its now attached for good.

Just plain excellent!

I always wondered how those folks managed to support all that extra weight on those skinny little tires.

There must have been 200 lbs of air in them! :blink:

Thanks James, Del, Virgil, Chris and David.

Well David, I don't have that problem. Mine's made from balsa wood. :)

I should really put on dual tires in the back and I've been considering this since I started this build. You may have just convinced me.

Borrowed the DW's fancy EOS camera and took a few close-ups and here's the radiator after weathering it a bit.

I'll need to experiment with her camera some more.

I finished up the tail lights by finding some red lenses from the parts bin, added a few more items to the book shelf and am working on fabricating a soap dish and some fruit for the blue bowl. Pictures will be forthcoming. Please stay tuned.

It needs a partner. How about a calliope truck? This one seems to have more heavy-duty rear wheels and tires.
