I started this one with a resin cab with a chopped top and the quarter windows removed. I used the AMT pickup with the custom parts on the bed. Since it had Corvette tailights a lightbulb went on in my head! Why not go with a Corvette theme? I wanted the lakester look so I already had decided on the Moons. Looking back I probably should have just used the Corvette wheels. I robbed parts from a '93 AMT Vette and the rearend from the Monogram '37 Ford.
Had a few issues with the resin body. First the kit hood would not fit so, I heated the body in warm water to reshape the cowl. Then after I painted it with Dupli-Color primers and Model Master Green Go, I noticed the rear of the cab had caved in . Upon reheating the body to reshape it I was afraid I had ruined my paint. Forunately the water marks buffed out with Meguiars Scratch X2.0 later.
A fun build that went a different direction than I had originally intended. No windshield wipers, antennas or mirrors but, strangely has AC. Enjoy.
