You REALLY should put together a kit of this whole truck as a conversion and offer it. AWESOME work sir!

Thanks Tom, I do have most of the parts ready...except casting the tailgate.  The master is done, just need to mold it.

Small update.  I can't believe how slow this one is going!  Not much to add but I got the bumper painted, weathered and installed, windshield installed, back glass finished with surround, interior finished and installed, grill installed, and began weathering and dirtying up the engine bay.  I started the wiring on the firewall, painted and weathered the master cylinder and attached the brake line.  I need to do the spear trim on the bed yet and of course the engine bay, exhaust, mirrors, door handles etc.  Still have lots to do but its coming along!  Thanks for following this slow build!

Great work with incredible detail. I especially like the dashboard. What do you use to make the molds?

Thank you,  I use lego's for the box and clay for the base then two part smooth on liquid silicone for the mold.

Outstanding weathering and ageing on this build. Looks just like an old work truck in 1:1.

Small update!  This is probably the last shot on the workbench for this one!  I got the rest of the trim on the bed and cab, the chains on the tailgate, made a toolbox for it, and made some wheels as I found I did not have any 6 lug stock rims.  All that is left is Weathering the white on the box sides, mirrors, antenna, engine bay, front bumper, wipers, and door handles.  Hope you like it, thanks for following this slow build and thank you all for your positive feedback....see you under glass!

This looks so realistic it makes me wonder if you might have an old work horse hanging around in your drive was. This is really spot on !

Great work. I have to admire your dedication to this project and your ability to create the parts you don't have by making them yourself. Your weathering skills are superb and appear very realistic. Thanks for sharing.
