    Trading model collection for non model items
    I'm just wondering what everyone thinks about someone trading all of their models/ supplies for non model items.. Musical instruments, wood working tools.. Things like that?

    I really like those blazers.. I'm feeling like maybe grabbing one of those body's and not using the s10 body..

    We'll I didn't really use primer and the tailgate area. I ran out, so what you see there is a dusting of flat white and flat black spray paint.

    Got alittle more done on this never ending project haha... Thanks to pharoah for hooking me up with a chevy tailgate that I molded into the rear of the truck. I hope to have the front suspension done today and maybe be alittle closer to paint.

    Thanks everyone. I have a busy few days coming up so I don't know how much I'll get to work on the truck but it's coming along great! Hopefully I'll have paint on it sooner then later

    Started building the scratch built firewall with tubs for the front tires, I have a little more work to do to that.. Also started on the upper and lower control arm, since this kit didn't come with them. I think it might of been 4 wheel drive?

    I've thought about that if I decide to do that I can always use the piece I've made as a templet.. I'm trying to find a tailgate with the embossed Chevrolet or gmc in it so I can mold it into this kit some where..

    Not much for updates.. I got the body wet sanded and another coat of primer on it I hope to have it painted this weekend. As for any other updates, I'm building door panels or door cards depending what side of the world your reading this from I hope to start working more on the interior this weekend sometime between coats of paint..

    Gmc syclone?
    I've been working on this project for a year or two now it started life as a gmc syclone but has turned into this crazy project... Body dropped, chopped top and I laid the A pillar back to keep a nice shape to the side windows, custom phantom grille, scratch built front bumper, shaved everything, door handles windshield whipers, gas door, tail lights, tailgate.. I added a sunroof, custom cut the hood and molded the rest of the hood into the body.. As for the chassis, it's sorta stock besides the back half which is custom tubed with a scratch build independent rear axle.. I just got back into this project after a few month brake from model building.. I hope to have it done in the next few months...

    Need some help with 3d printing/ modeling?
    I'm in need of some 3d printing assistance? I've been working on a 63 ford econoline van that's gonna be a replica of a van called vango. I started with a 60s dodge a100 van and I've made my way to the front end where I'm having some trouble scaling everything and making it all work.. I saw someone working on a 1:18 scale 3d printed ford econoline truck. I was wondering if anyone knows who that might be or can someone point me in a direction so I can get the front end of a ford econoline modeled and printed in 1:24 scale.

    Engraving parts?
    I'm currently working on a project that I'm getting very detailed with. I've been into lowriders for 20+ years and the new trend is engraving.. I'm trying to figure out a way to "engrave" a few parts ,control arms, rear axle, etc.. Just wondering if anyone has an idea of how I can get that look?

    It's FAR from done. I had hoped to have primer on it but, due to snow and more snow I haven't had a chance to get to the store so I tossed a paint on it I had just to see where I stood. I still have to put tail light buckets in and figure out the highlights, the driver side needs the wheel wells... If I named everything I still have to do you'd still be reading a year from now. Chassis on the other hand is coming together I'll get photos of that up soon... That's all I have to show for now
