I built this years ago. I took apart because back then I used baking soda and superglue for filling body work.  I will never make that mistake again! I cleaned all the old stuff out and striped it. After getting the body work redone Jimmy Flintstone casted the body. I decided to turn the original body it to a rat rod. I did this in case the baking soda came back to haunt me again. I will use a resin body to make a shiny version sometime. This was the first model that I got into a magazine.  It's getting a lot of changes , but I had to fix it.20180605_013222.thumb.jpg.0c90c858eeb32d4415a5598ba54a631d.jpg20180605_013117.thumb.jpg.f4712f19f4285f48b7a9b1512026bb5e.jpg20180605_013015.thumb.jpg.90e46abbb0019c50d30935d64c43e73a.jpg

What were your issues with superglue and baking soda?  Going to be a nice build, looking forward to updates.

Basically everywhere the baking soda was used it corroded and the paint bubbled off. Shouldn't take to long to finish. Mostly just a lot of painting and reassembling it.

What I can see looks good. I am reserving judgment on the rest untill you show us the front and rear styling. Please share more photos.

Pat your weathering always leaves me speechless, but this finish almost looks like a camo pattern as its pretty constant on the whole body.

Thanks,  not done yet. This is just the base ,still trying to figure out something to add to it ( lettering or graphics) . I'll add some streaks and pigments after that. I've been trying to work on my real truck and haven't got back to it.20171208_114052.thumb.jpg.dbee44d3a93316b8fd2213df86d0d7ec.jpg

Almost got this back together.  Still need to paint the wheel centers and glue them on.
