Ahhh . . . my first truck model, (it was 1974 I think)
Never could get the stacks to stay mounted to the cab, drove me completely nuts . . .
Can't wait to see your build progress, please post plenty of pics.
Are you planning much detailing?
Very nice work . . . personally I think that the chrome fronts look great with the painted tanks and quarters, if they were chrome then maybe that might border on a bit much . . . not that you asked for my opinion, lol!
Tim . . . are the wheels Duplicolor, Killer Chrome or ??
To me, those are your most realistic yet.
I love the way you use different NMF finishes to get that real life look.
Very nice Pete,
I still remember being close to first in line on opening night for the first Smokey and the Bandit movie at our local cinema.
Can't wait to see this build progress further.
Your detailing is phenomenal.
I wish I could have found brass channel for my cab steps, I probably scrapped at least 2 dozen attempts with Plastruct.
I don't know if it's just the photo, but your door panels painted look just like actual black vinyl to me . . . any special prep/paint there that you'd consider sharing?
Please keep the pics coming, I was very inspired looking through your album.
