Been down with the flu, (bad stuff this year!) Maybe start back on this next week. Power will be a 440 since the wheels are new model dodge. Need to polish the pipes, not sure what to do, keep em or lose em?

ya that flu is awful, but I survived it. Neat project, I personally like the pipes, you said they need polished, are they aluminum tubing? They would look  better polished

I like it!   Keep the stacks.

 

What did you use for a chassis? Scratch built or stretched?

I agree keep the stacks but polish them they make updated mirrors fit in. What did you use for the 41 Chevy cab?

That's cool.  I prefer it without the stacks.  Where are the wheels from?  I could do with a set like that.

Chassis is stretch 41, cab is a 41 pickup, wheels are from a new ray 1/32 scale dodge pickup farm set. They measure the same size as 1/25 scale, modified to fit the 41 axles. Stacks will be polished before final fitting and bed still has some work to be done. oh, mirrors are f250 ford.

Nice. I'm also a little curious about the stretch chassis. Any photo of the underside available? Thanks.

That's wicked, love it. My son keeps his toy trucks hidden away from me so I don't steal his wheels :)
