This is my version of a Ford F-150 Raptor. My hobby room is still not ready to build in so I have a board I can set on a kitchen table. This way I can put it away so my wife isn't upset. I haven't built anything plastic in a couple of years. My slump buster. It's a nicely detailed snap kit as everyone knows. Some let downs are the tail lights and stickers instead of decals, but it's mean't for beginning builders. I used Testors One Coat Lacquer Flaming Orange, Duplicolor Fabric and Vinyl Charcoal Grey and Testors Flat Black. The rest is just detailed using bottle paint. My picture skills are poor, but it's great to build again.
After seeing a couple of these builds pop up, I thought Id grab one and see how it worked out. I flocked the floor mats gray, and got the door panels painted a gloss gray. It was weird, when I tried to paint the door panels the gloss gray, there were certain areas that the paint would 'run away' from, on both pieces. This plastic also seems thicker. Whenever I try to file/sand something, it seems to chew through my material and paper. I decided to scrap the metal axle and kit wheels for something a little different I have since made sure the bed rails, hood inserts, and such fit, which everything does very well. The pictures make look a little unlevel, its only because part of my mat is warped
