Just finished my latest project. I combined four different kits for the build. I started with the frame and engine from an old MPC kit, the cab from a U.S.A. 1 monster truck and the bed from a snap fast kit. I scratch built a goose neck plate, rear bumper and tool box from sheet styrene. Wheels are from a Monogram F-350. Finish is Krylon Banner Red.

Nice looking dually Benny! Great idea on the kit bash! I'll have to remember that one. I actually like that grille better than the later models. It looks like one could put a couple of square lenses on each side and make the head lights really pop.

Nice phantom! In 1988 the 3500 trucks would've had the same bodystyle as the 73-87, IIRC. I've been trying to build a regular cab dually for a while now but need to find a frame...

Thanks for all the kind words. I had a great time at the MCMA show this past Saturday and a photographer from another model mag took pictures of this truck. I hope it gets selected for the mag.
