i had a distressed f.m. 1950 GMC pick up truck in maroon and a gearbox 1/24 1953 ford tow truck. so i just started taking them apart and made one truck out of them. i repainted the GMC red it took some cutting to do this but now it is a 1950 GMC tow truck. i wanted a daily work truck.

i thought it would look mean with a flat black bumper and grill

i was able to remove the painted on door logo and put it on the GMC

from the outside you would never guess whats under the hood.
