  1. Black on the exhaust. Now I need to go do that. I probably forgot something else. Thank you!
  2. Here are a few photos of my AMT Chevy pick-up and go-kart. I began this build in early 2020 at the start of the virus. Therefore, I didn't visit my favorite hobby shop for paints, and I used the rattle cans that I had instead of my airbrush. So, the finish may be a bit not up to most member's standards. The body color is actually from a spray can of lacquer paint for an El Camino that I used to own.
  3. Your build is beautiful. I am completing the same truck. Did you have trouble with the front of the bed sides lining up with the cab? I had to heat my front bed sides and pull them out a bit. Additionally, did you find that waist line of the truck wasn't perfectly straight? Both the cab and bed are seated correctly in the frame, and the front of the bed and the back of the cab fit tight and they fit fairly parallel to each other. However, it appears that there is a slight downward arc at each end of my truck. Thank you.
  4. I've recently started building models again after roughly forty-five years of working on bigger cars. I seem to remember that back then model cars were four or five dollars. I was lucky to find a can of spray paint in my dad's garage, and flat black was my go to color because I could only afford one or two bottles of Testor's. I have always enjoyed drag cars and more specifically gassers. In addition to model building, I enjoy off-roading, metal fabrication, and re-purposing vintage car parts to become art work. I admire all of the talented work on this site, and I look forward to sharing builds and ideas.
  5. Here are some photos of not only a recent build, but the first build I have done in the last 45 years. I wanted to give the car the look of a well-used, low-budget gasser of the 60's. I intentionally made the car unrealistically low in the back end just to give it some attitude.
