Checking this out, you got some kewl things going on, here is just a thought, what if you took the parymid and cut it in half, then mold it to the back of the cab, kinda a 3-D fx, looks kewl no matter, but it would also give you more room in the bed too, just an idea.....

Ill have to try that, i thought too it took up a lot of room, was also thinking of scratch building one a lot smaller as well.

It's a 3-d sign foam that is very durable and strong that can be carved to shape a urethane type foam, ever since i discovered this stuff I love it for this kind of work.

Im not a figure painter by far, but think this Aztec Warrior is coming out pretty good. Will have several of them on and around the model.

Thanks Mike,

Derrick,

got mine from signfoam.com , or you can check with a sign shop that makes customs signs in your area to see if they will sell you some drops or leftovers, thats a long shot but some might.

 

laying out the rest of the interior! IMG_20130323_155610_zps57eb9511.jpg

Well it doesn't look very comfortable, but it sure is neat looking. I always enjoy your work.

Thanks guys...,
working on some different ideas for the one of the beds, rethinking the pyramid in the bed of the truck may change that.

Been working on the radiator, always wanted a more realistic radiator then what comes in the kit, I came across this tip from a modeling website and to finish it off i have to install the photo etch radiator detail screen on top but that should not be to hard after all the painstaking time that went into the vanes of the radiator.

Loving all the details.  Second and third servings of eye candy are a must.

FINALLY!!! Finally got down to business to figure out a design for the grille and how it would look over all, not sure about the tooth pick staying, was going to put tooth picks up and down for a grill effect but could break the foam in the process and could use smaller round post, but so far pretty content with the design.
