1950 Chevy Pickup
Posted 13 September 2012 - 02:43 PM
Just wanted to share some pictures on the 1950 Chevy Pickup from AMT.
Most of the parts are done, just putting it together and some final touch up is needed. Not happy with the fit of some of the parts, as when you line up the differential, drive shaft and engine, the cab no longer sits where it is supposed to.

I still have to mask of the bed and spray the rails. The glass still has to be added and I will pick out the lettering on the chevrolet emblems and on the tailgate.

The paint is from rattle cans, Daytona Yellow and Citrus Yellow Metallic with Testors one coat clear coat lacquer over that. The metal work is Alclad Duralinium or Polished aluminum.
Hopefully I can finish it this weekend and post final pictures.
Thanks for looking.

So far my wheels are centered in the wheel wells, but I haven't attached the interior to the cab yet, so there's still a chance for the fronts to get screwed up. My back wheels are dead-center, so either I got lucky when I did my wood bed, or the Modeling Gods were smiling on me that day!
