    Thanks, Rob. It's the Detail Master bed truck kit.  Comes with balsa wood and eight 5in. rails.  Enough for 2 kits.  Balsa wood is a little thick but you find some at a hobby shop.

    1953 Ford Pickup - Updated 8/27
    Here is my 4th build of a 53 pickup.  I really like this kit - not the flip version (even though I did build one), but the 3 in 1. I love the custom parts and the Desoto engine in it. I have plans for another custom, a 4x4 and a COE.  here are the other 3 I've built so far:



    This one will be the stock version.  A couple of good things that should go well for me on this build.  I've built two 3 in 1s so I'm fairly familiar with the kit.  Although this is the first stock, for my 53 ford wagon, I built a stock engine so I also have an idea of how that goes.  
    Cleaned up some parts the last couple of days and laid primer and some base flat black on them. Using a resin spare tire fender.  Not sure on the color yet. Here are some pics:

    The color, the exhausts, the taillight, even the skull shifter, they all fit so well together.  Greta job!

    I think you're right, Ray.  I'm going to do that before I put it in the display case.
     
    ...and i just noticed I put this in the wrong place.  Harry, can you please move to the Under Glass section, please.  Thanks in advance.

    I got to work a little more on this one.  Quite a bit actually since the wife is out of town.  Here are some progress shots.

    Thanks Carl. It's great that you always follow my threads.
    Here is more paint.  Some gloss coats are needed to call it complete.  Soon...

    Alright, I'm back from running errands.  Today it really felt like I put some good bench time on this one.
    Pulleys in place as well as the alternator and bracket.


    The engine is just about complete.  Some minor last finishing touches are needed.


    Some chassis work


    I had sanded this the other night so another layer of red and then the first layer of purple is on.

    Carl - it's model master acrylic. guards red with a bit of crimson red.
    While waiting for the wife to get ready, I put the plugs in.  Now off to run some errands
