Here are a couple pics of the engine and chassis detail:
I was going to use one of the Aluminum moon tanks, but after seeing how little of it shows once the body is on the chassis, i decided to just strip the chrome off of the kit tank and paint it with Rub & Buff Aluminum. I'll save the Aluminum tank for a model where it can be seen better...
I need to repaint the scoop. Too much handling while I was adding some of the details rubbed just a bit too much of the Rub & Buff Aluminum off of it... I still need to add the throttle linkage to the rear of the Hilborn 4 port injector base.
The engine and chassis in the 41 Revell Willys drag kits is so nice that I bought several "spares" for other projects!!
Here's a pic of the body and hood after a base coat of paint. I reshaped the hood opening to match the shape of the scoop from the Stone, Woods & Cook Willys, and I opened the headlamp openings to fit 41 Willys headlamp assemblies.
I'm thinking of painting the top portion of the truck bright yellow, just above the beltline molding. If I do, I'll also paint the bed cover the same color. Suggestions?
