It would look pretty good a little weathered.

I love the pinstriping on the dash, I've seen this a lot in 1:1.  The whole model is looking good, nice!

Thanks, I was just looking at some real trucks and got the idea for the dash. I am going to try and finish it up tonight. Only needs a couple minor things.

The bottle for a shift knob is a nice touch.

Well here is the finished product. I still need to find some mirrors for it. I dont like the one it came with and I wanted 2 on it anyways. I never intended to put as much work in it as I did anyways but I am very happy with the way it turned out.

I love this truck!  Everything about it is just right, nothing is over done.  The wheels fit right in too.

 

As far as mirrors, a pair of the street rod mirrors from either Model Car Garage or Scale Repros Plus would look very cool. They are small round mirrors and come in pairs. They are machined aluminum.

Thanks, Im glad you all like it. I usually build demolition derby car models. So this is really my first go at a normal build. Tom thanks for the info on the mirrors, I will check them out.
