  1. Very nice. What blue did you use?
  2. Thanks for the kind words everyone. I'm on the hunt for a second gen, particularly one from Tamiya, but they're kinda pricey right now.
  3. Cool build, do you remember the color that you sprayed the body with?
  4. Thanks for the kind words! Iamsuperdan, pull it back out and finish it up. Another thing that bothers me about the kit is the fact that it's apparently based on a 3/4 ton camper package, hence the rear axle being so far back. Oh well.
  5. This is a beauty. I love the look!
  6. Thanks again guys. Yeah, I should put a battery in it, but I'm afraid I'm resting on my laurels......lol
  7. This is great! I love the weathering that you've done to it.
  8. Thanks guys! This was the newest Firestone reissue.
  9. Let me start of by saying, I wouldn't want to build one of these again anytime soon. I was asked by my uncle to build a replica of a truck he used to own, and I wasn't smart enough to say no.lol Enough complaining, on to the build. I read on here about the low roofline on the windshield that makes the truck look like it's furrowing it's brow at you, and, once I saw it, I couldn't un-see it. I had to correct it. Best of all, the windshield still works after this modification. I added the lower trim to represent a Ranger Lariat model. Paint is Tamiya white rattle can primer, then masked off for Tamiya acrylic copper which was airbrushed on, then covered with ts13 straight from the can. No polishing as I was tired of looking at it.lol Wheels and tires are from the Dodge Ramcharger as the kit supplied ones look and fit like a dogs breakfast.
  10. Thanks fellas! I'm going to have to build something to hook up behind these someday. Was thinking of the flatbed with the amt dozer on it as I already have the dozer, and the gravel trailer for my LT9000 as it will have a wet kit on it.
  11. Thanks guys and gals! JohnnyK that's a bummer, I would love to own either one in real life. I've heard lots about the apex seals....
  12. I agree on the colors, suits it. Gotta get one of these kits. Nice diorama.
  13. Love it! Is this the Italeri kit?
  14. Thanks guys. iamsuperdan, yeah a second gen(FC) is on my to do list. Maybe even an RX8 just to round it out.
