This is my tentative plan for the 41 Chevy pickup. The bed will be replaced with a scratch built one.

I am also not the most prolific builder on this forum, so you'll need to be patient with me, this may take awhile.

Your input is welcome, thanks for looking.

No need to worry about being a speedy builder Paul.  We're easily entertained here.

Speed is irrelevant. It's the final product that counts, not how fast (or slow) you built it.  B)

Same thing i was thinking. Or is it a 32nd scale military chassis? either way it's starting off pretty good. No hurry, but keep us updated when you can! Thanks! :D  ;)

Thanks for the comments, guys.

The wheels do come from a 1/32 military kit, don't know which one. They have a ridge in the center of the rim like so...

So I added a strip of .010 x .040 plastic on the outer edge

This is the result

Latest update, got the basic chassis done. The brake drums were made from small wooden toy wheels. Not sure how much detail I am going to add. This may end up being just a basic build.
