    Thanks guys! It does look sharp in black with the graphics.. They're meet little trucks that you never see anymore, at least around here. 
     
    I got the flares painted and inside roof done, next is the flat black around the rear window and door frames. After that it's BMF around the front window, door handles, lockss and tie downs on the box. I will BMF the tail lights and paint them clear red, clear orange and white. I also have to black wash all the panel lines in flat black.

    Thanks guys! Ahh that will help a bunch on looking up pictures, thanks! I just figured it was an 1985 since that was the year on the chassis.. I am not to big on imports, so it's hard for me to tell the years. 
     
    I got the decals applied and cleared it.. These were really hard decals to use since they were so thick and didn't want to stick well even with micro set and micro sol. After a lot of fighting I got them, I hope the automotive clear holds them down well. The clear also didn't wanna lay flat on the decals, but it's almost unnoticeable. 
     

     

     

     

     

     
    flares will be airbrushed with low gloss black, as well as the rear window rubber and door frames. The front trim will be BMF,d as well as the tie downs and door locks. Not sure on the handles, I'll have to look that up.

    Yeah black can be tricky! I will wet sand the black with 2000 and 4000 prior to applying decals and then I will lay a coat of eurothane automotive clear and that gives the glass look.

    This is my next build and it's another low parts count kit, so it shouldn't take to long.. I sanded all the mold lines off, scribed all the panel lines deeper, Tamiya primer and painted then painted in tamiya gloss black. Next is decals and clear, then satin black details. It's gonna have white rims, black/chrome trim with red interior.

    Thanks guys! I've now got 12 models completed and about 50 unbuilt still in the wrapper kits that eventually need to be built... Trying to decide on what to start next.

    Just finished this one up.. Took about a week and a half and a chunk out of my thumb in the process.. turned out pretty nice in Hemi Orange.

    Thanks for the compliments guys!! This was another really fun build.. I like the old 1/24 scale monogram kits more and more.. I'm gonna track down a 71 GTX and do that one next! I used testors enamel light brown for the woodgrain parts, the ones in the little glass jars. 
     
    I got got it all finished up tonight.. I'll post some pics in under glass as well.

    Thanks guys! Yeah this kit is definitely worth picking up for the mopar collection.. The box art makes it look really toyish but it does build into a really nice kit.. It lacks detail on the firewall and door panels but it makes up for it everywhere else. It does bring challenges with the low parts count with detailing also.
