Been far too long since I have even tried to build anything. I wanted to start with a kit I would not want to put too many extras on. I am sure I will still have to fight the urge to over do it.. but I will try to keep it as box stock as I can.

 

Updates will be slow, I am actually in the process of setting up a temporary build space in my outside stoage unit at the property I manage.

 

I believe I already started this kit a few years back but only got as far as washing the kit and maybe cleaning up some stuff.

Cool.  I didn't even realize this was in California Wheels now. Any definite colors planned yet?

I was thinking something like this. Nothing set yet tho. Want to keep it simple, get some seat time in.. and actually complete something to really get the stuff flowing.

 

Also, I think I purchased this like 4-5 years back so I am sure its out there.

Thanks for the inspiration Justin! If my weathering techniques were good enough, I may try that weathered patina look..

I believe it's a current product.  I think I saw it at Michaels the last time I was there.

It is a nice kit and can not wait to see what he does with it, my hobby lobby has had this kit on the shelves, (not the california wheels but the trucks version) for quit some time, if you can use the revell trucks version and have a hobby lobby close check em out and remember to use the 40 percent coupon or there new app for smart phones to pick it up.

Well if I wasnt nervous before I AM NOW! 

 

Updates should start to slowly roll in after tomorrow. I will be clearing out the storage area, setting up my desk and tools. I just need to figure out ventilation. I think a simple screen door paired with my huge fan should be good enough.

 

Thanks for all the photos, encouragement, and PRESSURE!

I had a 1:1 '64 Chevy pickup back in the 70's only it had a "stepside" bed. After I blew the 6 cylinder motor, I put in a 350 block with an L88 cam, Holley spread bore carb, Hooker headers, and a dual point dizzy. It also had a four speed tranny which came out of a wrecked Nova as well as the engine did also. The truck was a rust bucket, but lots of fun, and got me pulled over by the local Barney Fife's a couple of times.

An "L88 cam" will not work in a 350, L88s were Big Blocks.

I went by one of the hobby lobby's thats no too far from my house in hopes of finding one of these kits but they didnt have any. I may have to try another one here in the valley. Gotta love the 40% off coupon lol
