    Well the body work continues  You can see that the body has now been flatted ready for top coat. Apart from some slight issues on the passenger door where the slats were . This will be re filled again .
    Normally I would of passed it and said it was ready but as it will be a copy it needs to right....! I have got the paint that is as close to the cars exterior colour but it has been repainted at some point in its life . The colour on the inside of the doors is slightly different it is a bit more metallic . So I will decant the paint into the airbrush and add a tiny bit of silver to it to try and match the original Light metallic green that Dodge intended .
    Comments as always welcomed good or bad

    Well I just started getting the front and rear bumpers ready for dry fitting. Then I noticed that the bumpers don't have any over riders on them like the 1/1. So that's just one more thing that I will have to scratch build

    Thanks Dan
     I was under the 1/1 this morning on my back  Just checking some colours shocks will be white as there adjustable. The K member is satin black under the dirt and grime, chassis rails are body colour the axel and drive shaft will be satin black also. I did notice that I will have to change the front breaks for disks. Fuel tank is aluminium and I will have to weather the front half of the exhaust pipes as the rear half is brand new . I was very surprized that that the kit is quite accurate to the 1/1 underneath . So it should be fairly strait forward to put in the break and fuel lines.
    I have just about got all the bodywork done and should be able to get it primed tonight flatted tomorrow and with a bit of luck get some colour on as well . I have also drilled for plug wires on the engine. I just have to paint the distributer grey to match the 1/1 .
     Comments welcome

    Love the paint . I would use BMF and not bother using the supplied kit foil as it does not conform to the body shape very well . Keep at it your doing great

    I met ( Ice road Rick) at a truck show a few years ago, unfortunately I found him to be very arrogant  The next year though I met Lisa and she was a very nice person who loves trucks and trucking. Your rig looks great and captures the look perfectly . Nice work
