My very first resin kit and it was a blast!  The kit came from Race Motor Replicas and arrived real quick.  I painted it with HOK tangerine kandy over zenith gold.  Prowler headlights fit just about perfect.  The hauler portion was made from Evergreen.  The ramps slide into the slots at the rear.  Now I need to build something to be carried.

Thanks, Bruce.  My mind has been working - nothing yet.  I can't decide if I want something to match the truck or just something completely different.  Oh, the problems of modeling.

Nice paint and wheels, but Bruce is right, the ride has to look better than the truck. No pressure !!!!

Thanks, Chris.  Maybe a '37 Chevy coupe with the same paint and wheels?  Nuts - I'd have to find more Prowler headlights.

Nice color, looks great.  

What about a prowler with the same wheels , but running slicks out back.

Thanks, Andy.  I like the Prowler idea with some BIG slicks.  I did build one Prowler with a hemi - maybe again and make it a drag racer.

Thanks, Richard.  My plan was for the modern Prowler headlights to go along with the upgraded Chevy small block engine and Toyota truck front suspension.  I believe they're called resto rods now.  And besides that, the Prowler headlight fit the curvature of the hood just perfectly.
