  1. Incredible build, there's a lot of hidden details on this ! I'm building a 359 myself, lots of reference pictures here for me to study... Any build pictures here, or details of what parts you've added ?
  2. Thank you guys, I know most of the builds here are stock so I wasn't sure how this would go down... More soon I'm just waiting for sunshine ( in the UK !! ) to finish more painting ! !
  3. Very impressive so far, I like to see people scratch building parts and you've built most of the truck this way ! ! Looking forward to more !
  4. Then the chassis prepped and painted, added chrome suspension and looking forward to adding all the kit chrome parts next ! Up to date now so thanks for looking, more progress soon !
  5. Engine was painted and the basic parts put together....
  6. Thans guys... Hereis the new chassis section added from sheet plastic, engine started, and started to make up new suspension on the front, i`ll be adding air bags later !
  7. Ive a bit more progress to show but i`ll update it again after ive moved some pictures around ! Been fiddling with this for a couple of weeks so i`ll get you up to date soon , thanks for looking !
  8. Chassis cut and wheels mocked up, the rear is standard height so you can see how much its lowered !
  9. Found a couple of wheels and tyres in the spares box which looked okay, ultra low profiles but with horrid centres. So i used the backs of the wheels with the original truck hubcaps modified to fit ! Still looked a little small even though the actual wheel was bigger, so i painted the rim black to blend in with the tyre ! After cutting off the front suspension and chopping up the sump ive got this, about the right height !
  10. So i wanted it long and low, most things i build are low and this was a real test ! First things first, cut up a photo copy and mess about with it for ideas..... Heres the plan !
  11. Hi guys...... Getting back into the models after a bit of a break, and joined in a build off on another forum. Now ive no idea about trucks, never built one, just googled pics and hope for the best ! Heres the kit im starting with........
  12. Thanks guys.. Mike, as I said I'm taking a chance building the body as one piece, this is not how the instructions show it ! And I must admit I've seen finished versions of this kit which looked fine. So the fact mine didn't like up well could be down to cutting the doors out etc, I've also found the floor pan was a little warped too, so I'm not blaming the manufacturer, in fact I'm sure if you built it carefully following the instructions it would line up correctly. So don't be put off building one of these due to my project, it's a very nice kit just take your time with the bodywork ! Oh and Chris, that's a really good idea, I just may go that route thanks !
  13. Thanks guys, and thanks Robert for the pics, its interesting to see them done properly ! So its back together, now 1cm shorter ! Lines up better too so i should be okay now ! Doors are only on with tape and im probably not using these wheels, but heres a mock up !
  14. Wow I love the original rendering, what a beautiful design ! Your doing a fantastic job so far, with both working out the dimensions and altering the body, and your choice of parts to create the lights etc ! Good luck with the rest of the build, think you may want to consider taking molds of this too !
