Meant to represent a truck that is used but not abused, perhaps maybe even a hand me down from a parent, and kept in the family since new. I think I may have went a little further on the weathering than I intended, and there are some areas that I simply failed at. I thought about working on a few more areas, but feel that I needed to call this one done at some point. This is the most extensive weathering I have done on a model, and represents some first attempts in various areas as well. Started with AMT Super Stones 78 Ford pickup After market items used as is or modified; Detail Master power steering pump and alternator brackets, and sunglasses, pocket knife, oil filler cap, plate frames Scenes Unlimited tires, battery, and Brake Backs soft metal oil filter (pulled from the parts box, possibly R&M) Bolt and nut heads from various companies Bare Metal Foil Wire mesh for grill (source unknown) scratch items grill is 23 pieces of styrene rod, rough but more realistic(will create jig for next similar project) Lowered mounting points for suspension to lower vehicle stance body to frame mounting brackets power steering pump dipstick Hand rag on seat Rear window, rubber seal Elmer's glue and black Tamiya paint parts box master cylinder rims Radiator (kit did not come with one) Radiator top rear-view mirror printed plates Body mods removed door side trim for better looking door graphics created utility box to be seen from the bottom, as well as door jams, the chassis looked like it had gaping open spots that needed to be filled, otherwise painted, dinged, bumped and weathered. decals printed for me by fellow modeler Ken Shaffer main body color by Scalefinishes.com weathering stains and pigments by Mig Ammo and Vallejo, and AIM products plus various others including RustAll.
