hope your not getting tired of Sanford and son.still not done but this is what i have to date. its just a facade with one side wall.i still have to ad a roof and some other missing things. hope some like it.
here is the truck where i am using a paper picture as a backround. i am in the process of doing a facade diorama. i have removed the green toilet and added an antique rocker a bundle of newspapers and i made a rusty old bed spring. i also removed the v8 emblem on the front. i made license plates with the correct numbers for it i still have to put the front one on the truck. i will post more when the dio is done.
here are a couple of pictures of the project as it is now. i am not yet done with it i still have to add a few things like the license plates and some touching up.i had ordered a set of decals for it but they are a little small for this scale so i just made my own lettering. also i have to do a diorama backround for it. this is just a peek.
i had a distressed f.m. 1950 GMC pick up truck in maroon and a gearbox 1/24 1953 ford tow truck. so i just started taking them apart and made one truck out of them. i repainted the GMC red it took some cutting to do this but now it is a 1950 GMC tow truck. i wanted a daily work truck.
i thought it would look mean with a flat black bumper and grill
i was able to remove the painted on door logo and put it on the GMC
i made a box to put in a tool box a battery and cables and a shovel
aged it to look well used
added an old flathead engine on the boom
put some accessory items in the body
put in a 396 motor from the d.m. 69 nova for some power
from the outside you would never guess whats under the hood.
