  1. sorry for your loss. you are in our thoughts and prayers, keep us updated. dave
  2. fantastic job, as usual doc! i'm learning a lot from your builds, but mostly to have fun, and, go wild with it! dave
  3. thanks george! rob, thanks for that suggestion. i'm still working on the paint(or lack of). got the running boards painted and washed, and some streaks of darker yellow. i'll post more pictures in a few days. i'll definitely do the alcohol/and toothbrush procedure. thanks again-dave
  4. thanks ryan. i've enjoyed this build alot so far. i have much more to do(haven't even started the interior). but the the original truck is 60+ years old, so i guess no big rush. just havin fun! dave
  5. not going too fast on this, but, what's the hurry anyway? here's a few more comments please... thanks for looking dave
  6. rip annette...another of our childhood heroes/legends-gone, but never forgotten dave
  7. thanks ed for the info. my son is wanting to build one, and was talking about converting a 40. i guess thats what he'll have to do. dave
  8. does anyone, or has anyone made this kit in 1/25, or 1/24? dave
  9. simply...AMAZING! what i've been doing is tinkering with a toy. what you are doing is true to life automotive craftsmanship in small scale! i am impressed! dave
  10. a few more pictures...the salting, and, after applying the yellow/cream final coat. this truck came from the factory in k.c. in sheridan blue(dark, almost black), was purchased by a caterpillar dealer in the area, and painted caterpillar yellow. it was used as the shop/service truck for several years. years later,(after alot of fading) i purchased it. the color of the 1:25 is now very close to the color of the 1:1 that i owned.
  11. brett, as much as i have always loved the willys coupes, and would really scowl at anyone who said the coupe body should be messed with, this thing is COOL! can't wait to see it finished. color me breathlessly awaiting the final product! dave
  12. whatever you choose on the wheels, it just keeps gettin better. i do like it better with fenders! i'm wantin to build an old wrecker. did you scratch build the wrecker beams, or rob off another kit? either way, its great! keep it going dave
  13. you've done a great job so far on your ranchero. it's gonna be a looker when it's done! dave
