Have you guys seen the newly released resin conversion kit for the 1:350 NX-01? Builds the Drexler refit. The resin portion is $195!  :blink:

The opening for the clearance lights is a little different on the straight pickup kits, but can still work. The frame is almost the same; just a bit different at the front for the tilt hood. IIRC the interiors are slightly different, but I'm not home with my kits so can't confirm that right now.

 

Although a better donor for a frame and possibly wrecker setup if your friend likes it better is the GMC wrecker. Its cab has the same roof insert; you would pretty much just need the front clip to build a complete wrecker.

I would like to finish two kits that are awaiting foil and final assembly: 1981 Chevy K20 and a 1957 Chevy Bel Air. 

 

I need to it down and figure out what I can bring with me to work on while I'm away at work; it would be nice to get some building done while in camp, even if I can't spray paint. Brush painting Vallejo acrylics should be fine. :)
