I had a ball building this one. I take my hat off to Revell for giving us such a well engineered kit.

Gorgeous. The surf board is a nice touch. As a bonus, you can post this in both the "Cars" and "Light Trucks" sections :D

Pretty. I missed the build thread...guess I'll have to find it to find out how you got the Fairlane side trim on it.

Beautiful job!  I think the rails on the bed are a nice touch.  Also love the paint colors.
