I've been working on this on & off for a looong time. I'm using 2 AMT Escalade kits and 1 Revel Silverado.

The Caddy & Chevy bodies were cut just behind the rear doors. Then the Chevy back window "bulkhead" was glued to the Caddy body. The Chevy bed was shortened and sides removed. Scratched bedcover with the Caddy's third brake light. Modified Chevy frame.

'm gong to try & get this done this year. Thanks for looking.

Nice proportions going on there. Those wheels must be HUGE in 1:1 scale, they look nearly as tall as my car. I don't know much about US pick-ups, but that looks factory after the mods you've done. Cool work.

Thanks for the compliments! Still need to clean up the bodywork and the front bumper. And the wheels are only 24",  :)   

C-man495 here you go and thanks again...

Cool idea, I like the front bumper and third brake-light put in the bed cover!
