Blair,did you make scale drawings of the larger panels of your truck when you were building it?I would like to see you post photos of them if you did.If we had the panel drawings for the cowl/windshield,side panel,doors,roof and rear section panel that we could enlarge to the size we needed we could use those to create our own versions of your bread truck.

Thanks...Tom

I will usually create the body from card stock before carrying the design over to sheet plastic.  Card stock is cheaper than sheet plastic!

I just love the smell of plastic in the morning , I do better with plastic sheets ,i have a 1/24th scale ruler and using it works for me ,when I get my dremel going and the plastic is flying i,m in haven ,

 

 

 

THANKS TO EVERY ONE FOR THE KIND COMMENTS ,THE NEXT ONE WILL BE THE 1950 CHEVY FRONT END ,
