  1. Jared Roach added a post in a topic GMC s15/sonoma Updated 7/3/15   

    Actually i do have an update on this truck. I have gotten out of the hobby because i don't have the time to build anymore. Just trying to save as much money as possible before i go back to school. But this is the last thing i have worked on, i might finish it before the summer but don't count on it.









    I used a aoshima Toyota hilux for its frame, but cut and shortened to fit the s10 wheelbase. I also cut out the frame so i can fit a motor in there. I used a syclone front grill and modified it to fit the s10 bumper so it would resemble a stock s15/sonoma grill. I've still got a sealed kit to build as a stock truck, just decided to do something different with this one.

    I wish had more time and money to build, but right now my priority is my schooling, I'll probably come back at some point but once i finish school 1:1's will be my main priority.

    Thanks everyone! This was my first attempt at weathering with this method, I think it came out pretty well. Still not finished with it either.

    50 ford pick up
    So it's been awhile since I have posted anything. I've been building just no chance to share. Anyways i started this 50 ford pickup. Going to be pretty much box stock except for the wheels. I'm going to build it all restored except for a weathered body. I seen a TV show and kinda got inspired by they're builds so I wanted to give it a shot.








    I'm going to add some washes and powders too. Just thought I would share my latest project since I don't post much anymore.

    Well here is an update on this project.
    I've got the cab pretty much finished, Just needs a little more fill work and add some trim for the rear windows to sit on. Now I've been working on the front end, I've got the front grill almost done, and the bumper is started. The bumper still needs alot of work. I have yet to start the headlight housings. And some interior parts and rear bumper from a revell 99 silverado, still need alot of work to fit and look like the 98+ interior in my truck. I might not use the door panels, I'll see. Also shaved the rear gate since that is a modification I want to do to the 1:1 eventually. I plan on finishing the cab and front end and then onto the interior.

    Thanks guys! They are Pegasus 23 T's. I have a set of 19's too but I thought they were too small for this build.

    Well here is a long over due update on this truck. I painted it shortly after the last post. Paint went bad so I pulled out a second kit and painted that one. That also went down hill so I got discouraged and put it away.

    Well now I decided to get it back out and open it all up. Hinges are finished and now it needs door jambs.

    Thanks guys.

    I already have a speccast and I did that one as a landscaping truck.

    99 f350 plow truck
    So I started this one a while ago and kinda lost interest in it till a few days ago. It's just a basic maisto 1/27 diecast f350. I added the plow and decals from revells gmc plow truck. It's not really correct but it will do. Then scratch built a salt spreader and weathered it quite a bit. wanted to give it a well used look kinda like it has been used in many trucks. Now I'm working on finishing up the plow and details on the truck. Just thought I would post what I have done so far.
    I didn't take many in progress pics of the spreader, but it was pretty simple to make.

    Well I think I found a solution for the tires. I had some 1/4in wire loom sitting on the bench for the 1:1 but I never got to it yet lol. I decided to cut a piece to length and stuffed it inside the tire. Seems to have made it round again and also makes the tire more firm and supportive.

    I put the front and back wheel parts together yesterday and it seems to be slowly turning back to being round but there is still a flat spot. It's not as obvious as before but it is still there.

    So I just picked this kit up and I am very pleased with it except for one thing. These hollow firestone tires for the stock wheels are all flat on one side where they were attached to the tree. Anyway to fix that? I'm thinking about putting something in there to fill them but I'm not sure yet?

    Here's a pic


    The new wheels tires are awesome and very well done. The new tires are exactly the same tread pattern on my 1:1 which are BFGoodrich kdw g-force t/a's.

    Thanks everyone! It's the revell/monogram kit. I found everything fit pretty well, the hood was fine in my kit. I really like this one and I'm glad you guys do too!
