    Thank you David. I thought about painting it black but all the images I found online showed it in the same blue as the rest of the block.

    Here's a little bit of an update.
    One thing Moebius didn't provide in this kit was an alternator bracket. Since I don't like "floating alternators", I decided to make one myself.
     
    I fashioned this from a scrap of styrene. I made the slot using a panel line scribe and file.

     
     
     
    To secure the bracket on the alternator end, I drilled a hole in the alternator to accommodate a "bolt" to hold them together.  

     
    Here's the bracket installed. It's glued to the block with a spacer in between to properly align it with the alternator and held in place on the alternator with a wire "bolt" which will be trimmed and painted later.

     
    As always, thanks for taking the time to look and feel free to comment.

    Beautifully done Túlio. The extra add-ons aren't even missed.

    71 Ford Ranger
    Here's my shot at the 1971 Ford Ranger by Moebius.
     
     
    This kit is excellent! Everything fits as it should with little or no adjustment. The chassis looks like a model in its own right. I painted the whitewall lines with acrylic paint. They're going to need a little more work.

     
     
    Some minor detail work included drilling out the lug holes in the spare wheel and painting "labels" on the shocks.
       
     
    It usually takes me about ten hours to get to this point- this took about four hours.
      
     
     
     
    Test fitting the body.
     
     
     
    Or maybe the Racer's Wedge from Model King. I think I'd have to make it a dualie though.

     
     
    As Always, Thanks for looking and feel free to comment.

    Thanks Mike, I think the whitewalls bump up the "classiness".
    Thank you Christian. Are there any photos of your Studebaker on the MCM Forum? If so, I'd like to see them. 
     
    The other cars in the display case you noticed are the 1941 Plymouth, the 1958 Chevy Proton, and the Reaver. The Reaver doesn't have its own topic and I should probably make one. There are however, other photos of it on MCM Forum that will come up if you search under "Reaver".  Thank you for your interest.
     
    Thank you Dan.
