I wish the year was right…. I wanted to basically slam it together without getting too "involved" and let me tell you, THAT was a modeling challenge unto itself! There's more wrong with this build (aside from calling it a Surburban…) than right, but for a casual shelf piece to represent our truck is close enough. But I still had to stop myself from drilling holes in the doors for a set of handles from the Galaxie kit. And mirrors. And wipers….and fix the windshield….
I'm being open and honest, it WAS a challenge to stop at the "$10 die cast" level of detail without trying to over do it. But I show a co-worker a picture of it earlier and he was impressed. And he painted the actual vehicle! But stopping just when I was getting started was tough…..
