This one is going to be kind of a hot rod, sort of rat rod truck. It begins with a resin cab from KP Conversions, the frame is an old Mack R Model frame that I got off of Ebay already assembled. (Never by a model truck frame that's been assembled!) The rear suspension is air leaf from the snap Peterbilt with air bags that I cast from one of the Ertl kits. The drive axles are from one of the Road Boss type kits. The engine is a 4-71 Detroit that was made by cutting down a Spaulding resin 6-71.

You absolutely killed that exhaust manifold !!!

I'd love to hear your technique to do that !    It looks awesome.   You should do a YouTube video on how to do that !!

Thanks, but it was kind of an experiment. It is a red oxide primer base, with flat black and red oxide lightly fogged from a distance to give a "dry spray" look. I think that I added a little chalk too.
