    Thanks, it's for sale on ebay.  I never keep what I build. I don't have the room to keep them & for me the fun & satisfying part is the build itself. And thanks to everyone for all the great comments.

    Cooter's 72 Chevy wrecker. I built the wrecker body & lots of other stuff. Let me know what you think, good or bad.

    Hi, Missing Link has the cab for $50. You could build one from a super stones f350 cab. I did one almost 15 years ago, didn't come out too bad. I've seen your builds & I'm sure you would have no problem building one. The wrecker body would be easy to build. Here's the missing link cab & one I built a long time ago that was rebuilt by someone else. http://www.missinglinkrc.com/70s_f700_2012.htm

    She's about done. I have to build an exhaust And a few other small details. I built the mirrors from wire & added a little plumbing & wiring under the hood. I had to make it dirty because it's a work truck not a show truck. I'll post some better pics under glass when I get time. Thanks for looking.

    Thanks Ron. "Time" that seems to be the hardest part of building sometimes. I used to use the Midnight Cowboy kit too but they can get a little pricey so I just build them. The Holmes is what we had on our last wrecker when I was a kid. It was originally a 1966 Ford f-350 rack body truck & my father used the Holmes body off an old worn out 1960 Dodge we had in the junkyard. He used it for years & towed some big stuff with it too, lots of power in those old 390 Fords.

    Wow, great weathering! I love everything about it & Foxer is right, it's begging for a diorama.

    Thanks guys. I got the interior done, some paint & resin wheels.

    72 Chevy Cooter's tow truck
    Digging through some stuff, I found a box full of Cooter's tow truck parts. 3 built trucks with tons of missing parts. So I figured I'd build one box stock & one "my way". This one is the "my way" version. I started by stripping the paint off the cab & chassis & giving it some primer. I didn't have a complete wrecker body for it so I built my own. I don't like the way the kit one is anyway.

    That's nice! Does it have an engine or is it curbside? If it has the engine lets see it.

    I need help painting 1/24 figure faces
    Hi guys, I need some help. I want to add some figures to a project but I having problems painting the faces to make them look right. I can't get the eyes to look good. Tried painting them & "NOPE" not right. I tried leaving them unpainted & just did the eyebrows but that doesn't seem right either.  Please help.

    Make sure you make the top of the door panels worn & dirty from climbing in & out the windows.
