Hi!

 

This is my first Modelhaus kit and I have been quite pleased its quality although it was a bit expensive.

 

The kit contains all parts to built curbside model.

The chassis was not what I wanted because it was promo style and I don't usually use them.

I decided to show Dremell to fix it but something went wrong :D

Lindberg L-700 chassis was almost suitable but too short so I had to modify it.

Chassis is still in progress. Front and rear suspension is modified L-700 and rear axle is built from resin rear end and aluminium tube.

Body is painted

Interior is ready.

Poor little slant gives decent performance and was one of the most popular engine sold to this truck.

Stance testing before I noticed that door panel lines are wrong and needs correcting. Wheels are form the kit but tires are from Jeep.

More to come...

Great truck!  Modelhaus resins are a little more expensive than the average, but the quality is way better! Certainly worth the money. You are doing a great job on the truck so far.  One thing is that Chrysler slant sixes used in trucks were painted yellow. And the transmission would be left metal color.

 

I don't know if the crew cabs of this era were sold to the general public. All of the ones I've seen in real life started out as military units.  My father was in the US Army when I was a kid and I remember these.

that needs hemi

Yes, it needs but 426 street hemi was not an option to Crew Cab 1964, only CSS could be ordered with that monster. I tried to find Chrysler Poly A 318 ci V8 but I could not find any kit with it.

Yellow engine would be much better but I found pictures such kind of engine too late. Slant has already been painted and wired  banghead.gif

Karl, Nice build so far I like how you put your frame in and the stance of the Truck is spot on. I built the 65 CSS with a 426 max wedge. Looking for ward to see some more progress pictures.

I had a '68 and a '71 both with slant sixes, and mine were that blue/green color. I never saw a yellow Mopar engine.

Yours are later trucks. The '64 era had a yellow engine.  Anyone know the year cut off?
