I built this about 12 years ago....I really like this truck...I hope they re release it again soon.  I have a second one to build  but would pick up a couple more if they put them out again.

 

I was inspired to post mine after seeing  MsDano85dt's post.....I would like to see some more Honcho's if you got them...post away!  you can even add them to this thread if you want.

 

 I lifted mine using body lift blocks, Plumbed the brakes, wired the starter and alt. added braided radiator lines and added plug wires.  The wheels are from the parts box...they came from the Testors Eddie Van Halen Byods truck kit.  Wheels are American Satco.  The paint was a mix of model masters Gold and Magnesium brown. I flocked the floor and seats also.

 

 Thanks for looking!

Nice Honcho. Looks good in that color and the wheels somehow work. Cool.

Good looking Honcho. I have one of these in my stash to build but have not decided how I want to build it up yet. Yours has given me some ideas to thinks about.

Great build. I have one under the knife currently. Its going slow due to some other models getting in the way, but I should have some updates this week.

Nice.  I've been a Honcho fan all my life.  I love the body style.  I just think they look so tough, like a truck should.
