    I do have photos I'm using for reference.
    I found a bumper from an old Revell Custom Parts for Vans kit and modified it a little to look like the one on the truck.

    I also made all the bumper stickers for it.  Took me a lot longer to make them for this than it did to slap them on the real one…



     
    And one for the front bumper…

     
    The tire lettering and center cap decals have been applied.

    The wheels have been cast in resin, painted and weathered.  The tires are Desert Dogs that I sanded the lettering off of.  The size and tread pattern is a good match for the Remington’s I had on it.  I’ll add the sidewall lettering and center caps later.

    If I build it, it will be for my friend who gave it to me. But I will check to see if he has room first.
    I've ready done a model of his Continental 737; he was the pilot that took delivery of the very first Continental 737, and the Minicraft kit builds it straight from the box. (With the Scale-Master decals...)

    A friend of mine had to clear his attic for a new furnace today and found these four kits. He decided he'd never build them so he gave them to me.
    He used to fly B-47s and B-52s. He used to have a '63 Corvette and an early Pantera. I'm sure he planned to make replicas of his rides.

    No, I sold it a couple years ago; for $300.00 less than I bought it for. It held its value very well.

    Thanks Carl.

    All the windows have been installed…

    I bought one many years ago, I still have it and rarely use it. I tried all the different nozzles and found it doesn't work very well for paint at all.
    Even when charged fully it doesn't spray for long as the material is depleted so is the pressure. So to empty the canister it needs to be recharged with more air pressure a couple times.
    The spray pattern and volume changes quite a bit and quickly.

    The best use I've found for it is for spraying cleaning chemicals/solvents. But even then it is a hassle to fill, charge, recharge & clean.

    Thanks guys!

    I installed the pop-up vent and a screen below it. It has the screw jack rod too.

    Thanks Ira.

    I added the 2X4 across the front (styrene) and the bar across the back (brass). I also added the black rubber accents that were in some of the aluminum trim.

    Thanks guys.

    I started painting and weathering the camper shell. It was easier to just brush paint the silver and black parts than mask and spray them.

    I added all the corner trim and the iron upper tie-down rails. I freehand drilled the rails with a pin-vise out of sheet stock. The mounting base for the top vent is done.

    Thanks Gator, I'm enjoying the project.

    Here is the camper slider to the cab. Same construction/materials as the side windows. Been working on the roof vent too.

    Thanks guys!

    I made the side windows from sheet styrene, some clear plastic from packaging material and fine screen. They are just loosely plugged in for now.


    The rear “window” was a piece of unfinished dirty plywood. ( The clear plastic window turned white, cracked and ultimately fell out within a couple months of owning it.)
    There was a silhouette of the Stealth Bomber left from when I painted a model of one on the wood (when the B2 was still somewhat classified). The Kammback script was a leftover badge from my Vega.

    I built the original (shown in the box art photos) and don't recall any issues with the plastic being brittle back then.

    Just a little flame trim
