Please do not automatically label a comment regarding your behavior as smart assed simply because it did not agree with you, that is rather childish. I wasn't concerned with my comment sounding friendly, you are correct. I also did not intend for it to sound mean either. I simply wanted to bring attention to the way you come across to some of the members on the board here. Not unlike yourself I was simply calling it as I see it. Also, assuming that I would not be interested in your particular subject matter of choice simply because I did not agree with one aspect of your behavior is a little bit much. I am very interested in the Pocher kits and would love to have a go at one someday when my skills are up to the task. Its going to be a long way in the future with how fast I'm building skills now, lol.
The revell version has factory style wheel flares where the aoshima uses an aftermarket style. The revell has better body proportions in my eyes. They are both 1/24 scale. The KingCab revell offered in the past as a 4x4 and a 2x4 was 1/25 scale.
Use a drill to turn them against a fine wire brush to add wear to the tread surface. The wires on the brush will get down into the tiny low spots where sandpaper doesn't. I have done lots of 2 piece drag slicks this way and it works well.
I remember the article where Tim built his version. Crazy to think that was 25 years ago already, where does the time go? Your version looks very nice and has held up well over the years. I enjoyed your write up on the project along with the photos. Keep up the good work
The trucks went from Datsun to Nissan in the 83 model year. They made some front end changes too, bumper, valance and grille were all tweaked with . They also lost the vents on the hood for the switchover year.
I'm excited to see the kit return to the fold, its simple but builds up well. I'm thinking some lift and the tires from the jeep Rubicon kit. The kits 6 lug wheels would be accurate too.
The hardbody model of truck started in the 86 1/2 model year and the long bed regular cab hardbodies were dropped after 89
