    I got the rear clip of a 41 willys coupe through the post, it needs cutting and trimming but this is a rough mock up. Il have to put a piece of styrene tube across to keep it solid while I do what I thinks going to be the hardest bit to do. I need to embed the truck bed into the fap but still leaving enough room for the wheels.

    Bonnet and underside done, starting in the door now then its just finishing the body off. Im waiting for a old willys coupe to come through so I can do the bed of the truck, im going to be using the rear arches of the coupe and mould them to the truck bed as I don't really like the standard arches for the truck and I think the coupe arches will set it off a lot better especially with the big tyres tucked inside.

    A little update, i've rusted one door and done the hood and other door in primer, there is still sanding and another coat of primer for both then il add the black to the hood and rust and rust the primed door. I still have more rust to do for the rest of the body too. I have decided for the interior that at some point in its past it has been sealed so im deciding to use black underbody sealant applied by hand, it has a brownish tinge to it already which will help but il add just a sprinkle of rust within.
    Id say even though this build seems complicated because of the rusting details, to be honest its the opposite because I don't have to worry about tiny imperfections in the paint work

    Thanks guys i appreciate the positve feedback so soon! 
    Thanks for the Suggestion Steven, to be honest that's exactly what i was going to do in a way, i was going to get a little pot of tamiya base coat, mix a bit of it with the rust and a tiny bit of salty water to make a rusty paint/paste and hand paint the inside with a fine brush, hopefully while drying the rust will oxidize a bit more and cause rust runs, we'll see how things go though haha.

    Thanks for the offer man but im specifically looking for a used one just for the rear fenders as I want to mould them to the pickup bed of my 41 willys pickup.

    Need desperately!
    I need a 41 willys front grill and also the back end of a 41 willys coupe maybe an old glue bomb or anything as long as the rear fenders are in tact.

    Thanks buddy, all the body panels will be to match except the hood which will be gloss black with rust to look like its been replaced and a door in primer again with rust on to look like it was replaced too but not painted for a long time. Possibly an old decal here and there. All underneath though will look brand new and a surprise is in store for the engine.

    41 rust power!
    I decided to build this 41 willys pickup truck, I have limited supplies at the moment but that's not stopping me, I couldn't decide on a colour so I decided to rust it, not with all this fancy stuff for rust effect, this is genuine rust sanded off an old brake disc I have.
    I started by sanding the body as usual then rubbed rust powder all over the body. I then clear coated the body and sprinkled the dust hear and there and built it up. I still have more to do but thought id show how it stands.

    Donor body
    Im looking for a donor revell dodge charger body, 68 or 69. It really doesn't need to be the best of shape, aslong as it has the roof and pillars. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

    Hes around 7 months old now and hes just not learning, i swear he still doesn't know his name and we've tried all sorts to stop his bad habits and get him taught but he won't have any of it, hes awful with me and my girlfriend but won't go near our daughter. I guess all we can do is keep on trying but when hes no longer a puppy and hes still doing it we will just have to get rid of him. At least i know now to put all my parts back in boxes even if i only pop out for a minute.

    Disaster!!
    Has anybody got a dog? Is that dog annoying? Does that dog chew anything in sight?
    Well my dog is called Alf and i am not very happy with him, i mated an AMT quad cam 426 Hemi to the transaxle gearbox of a revell Ferrari Enzo, it took ages to get everything straight, filled and detailed to look as if it was meant to be together, luckily i hadn't finished building the engine, it was literally the block with cylinder heads and gearbox.
    Just as i finally decide what to use the engine in, the dog decided to get hold of it and now all that remains is the cylinder heads and a lot of chewed plastic. Now i have to find a new 426 doner block and a Enzo engine.
    Thanks Alf.....
