Grabbed this one because of the odd subject. Plus, I'm a Mopar nut! Motormax 1/24. All I did was change out the blackwalls for a set of white walls, blackwashed the grille and wheels, detailed the Plymouth script on the tailgate, and painted the stop light.

Looks good, you brought it alive!  I have a red and black one I'm keeping intact and another one I plan on blowing apart and creating a model project out of it... someday!

That is definitely a cool body style.  I like what you did with it.

Now there's something different! I didn't realize Plymouth made trucks back then. Yours looks great!

I know I commented earlier, but I just found this photo!  Here is the '41 Plymouth pickup along with it's Dodge brother. The Dodge is from the Johnny Lightning line.  I believe our own Art Anderson designed the tampo for this one!

Nice Plymouth Al. Your detailing sure brought it to life.

I never picked up one of these, I do have the Ertl Dodge panel.

Here is a nice 47 Dodge Canopy Delivery made by Ertl you may like as well. This one I left sealed because the logo is pad printed upside down. Somewhere I have one of these opened.

Not sure what happened to the photo, I think it got lost re-posting. I usually have to post twice half of the time here to get it to go.

Couldn't find the pic, but I like lots of the stuff in your Fotki album!

Al, your truck really "pops" with the whitewall tires and the blue and black color combination! Excellent work. I chose this model for the same reason you did, except my version is a dark green and black. Yours shows the details much better. Nice model!
