Yikes, that is a fine looking truck going into the rebuild shop.

Looking forward to seeing this one progress, I have a box of parts to build a similar (I think)

Have you found all the parts you need ?

Sean,

I think most. I need a few things if I can find them. Like the Malone Tires and an air conditioner for the roof

Sheesch, that's a long frame.  How many mm's would that be ?  My rough calculations was 380mm. This is going to be a nice one to see transpire.  Everybody will want one when your finished. ;)

Everything is looking great - keep up the inspirational work.

I've been pretty steady at this project since my first post. I have parts to complete it comming but until they arrive I robbed them from other builds which I will replace when the parts get here. It is comming along fairly well and can't wait to complete it. Right now about 75% done. Hope it looks somewhat close so far.

I think you have made a fantastic representation. Such a super looking model.  The only thing I might of done different was make the frame a little longer. And trust me it is a "stretch" for me to say that as long wheelbases are really not to my liking. ;)

I will definitely refer back to this thread when I get around to building mine so keep those photos on your host site.  I have plans for the same truck but the "white top" version.

 

PS Dont forget to paint the KW bug catcher gold..
