1934 Ford Pick Up

I acquired two of these kits from a friend, this one was loose in a box so I thought Id play with it and see how it went together, kind of as a dry run. Ill build the other one later
I found a few things that Ill do differently on the next one, but it was fun just to see how it would come out.
Overall it fits well, but being as tiny as it is, there are some tight tolerances.
I used Tamiya AS-21 Dark Green and Krylon satin black for the exterior, RAF Medium Gray for the wheels.
There were no windows so I used Micro Krystal Klear for the windshield and rear window, Ill make actual windows for the next one.
The wood for the bed is decal. I painted the silver strips and cut up the door panel decals from a Testors 442 kit for the wood grain.
A little wash and light weathering on the chassis. The chassis parts even include the steering arm along with full suspension.

Yes, Nice! I did an O scale version and it took a lot of fiddling to get things to fit.
