     I dont like lowered big wheeled cars. But this is an exception. Love it.

    Scenes Unlimited sells the whole line of So Real tires redone in much softer Rubber. He also remastered the old Ground Hog, putting the lettering on both sides so they are in the correct direction. Something to check out then...

    Very nice . Which one did that one start out as? Was that trim on the front fender?

    Thanks for the comments. Have recently been noticing the some of the different bodies availible in 1/24 from some of these cheaper brands. They have a lot of potential.

    1957 Suburban 4x4 Maisto
    This started out s a 2wd Maisto 57 Suburban. I swapped it onto a M2 1959 GMC 4x4 chassis. Tires, wheels and rear trailer hitch from Scenes unlimited.Semi detailed the interior. I also stripped the chrome going for the base stripper look.

    A lot of grinding in the front of the suburban and the frame.. The chassis length is right,you just have to make it fit. It was a messy swap (dremel) on the diecast. I cut the inner fender wells of the maisto chassis to fill the big gap in the rear. But it was worth all the effort. It is mostly done now.

    And my Maisto 57 Suburban, still in progress.Swapped onto the M2 chassis. Tires and wheels from Scenes unlimited.

    M2 also makes this Cameo. It was a 2wd I swapped the 4x4 chassis from the red truck. Again tires and wheels from Scenes Unlimited.
