This is the last thing that I should be doing but have had this idea for a while and while shopping for more gamer bits came across a piece i could not pass up that added to it so I bought it and will start this now.....Not sure if it will stay a 50 chevy, may try a 55 ford pickup but this 50 model gives the general idea i have for the truck, may add a trailer, may not, time will tell..

Made a trip to hobby lobby and came up with these cool pieces that I will put in a trailer behind the pickup and make it look like loot from the tombs...

Thanks Chris,

Ok I finally decided on a truck for this build. I was undecided for a while for a number of reasons, but have decided that the revell '56 ford will work, I like the shape of the cab and roof line for this project, plus it already has opening doors that will save me a lot of time creating working doors for this build.

The only thing I do not like is the fact that after buying three kits to get a kit that is not warped in the cab or frame area, which in all three kits need a lot of work to straighten the frame and cab area. That sucks but can be overcome.

my new years res is to finish the aztec warrior, the strippers delight and this one. Decided that there was way to much work on the revell 56 ford due to warpage and the fit of the doors so im going with this truck the amt 53 ford pickup.

I am on the final leg of finishing the Aztec Warrior so I am getting a renewed interest in this build. I have had a problem getting inspiration for this one and have gone thru 5 different trucks for this build but am settling on the 1950 chevy, i am starting to carve the Egyptian eye in the roof. here is where I am at now and more to come now that the aztec is 95% done.....20140904160533_zps32505c01.jpg
