This is an old MPC "Dust Devil" kit. It was missing some pieces here and there, but I managed to scrounge up enough to build it. bed accessories are from the parts box, brush guard is from the A-Team van, engine has a few things from the parts box. Since these photos were taken, the hood went MIA, and I have searched EVERYWHERE, even went through every kit box, and nothing, got a replacement from an old Revell kit, but haven't finished it yet.
Hope you guys like it, it will get a nice "dirty" treatment once I get the use of pastels down just right.
Since seing Steve's build I figured I would finish mine up. I had a ton of problems with the old decals and went through 3 sets. The clear was difficult to work with and I am still not sure why. But I am calling it done for now. I still don't have the side windows in, but they don't quite fit right so I will make some better ones later.
Well, I finally got something off the bench! With school out, yard work done and most of my VW issues fixed, I have time to start building again.
This was a built up from a LONG time ago, I built it as a "lowrider" for some rediculous reason, but it took first at the Good Guys contest a few years back. I only have one photo of it before, but it was ugly, you could see the primer through the base coat in places, the wheels did it no justice, engine was a very basic flat head...
So I tore it down, started from the beginning, and wow did it turn out sweeet! (I think, though I'm still having trouble getting the hood to sit right.)
Color is Ford Sunrise Red Pearl, interior is two tone custom mixed by me. I used a little flocking for the rear carpet, and added snaps to the boot. Under the hood is a Revell parts pak Ford 427. Air filters, wheels/tires from parts boxes and I scratched the front and rear roll pans from styrene and added some BMF.
