So here's my one week slump buster build turned one month project. This one was supposed to be a back to basics, low detail, spray bomb build that took a new course simply because I couldn't stand that early fuel injection system included with the kit. If you're going to change one goofy looking thing, why stop there, right?

Alterations to the base kit include opening the grill and putting a piece of screen behind it to mimic the 1:1 stock grill, swapping out the fuel injection for a carb, adding a little extra under hood detail, adding detail to the interior side   of the doors, and using some aluminum tube to beef up the exhaust tips a bit. Color is all shades of red from Krylon. Hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Great looking build. Where'd you get the Air Cleaner? It looks perfect for the truck!

Thank you. That's actually out of the Revell 65 Chevy 2n1 pickup. I used the custom air cleaner on the one I built and had that stock one laying around for a while. Between that and the SBC intake from an AMT parts pack, I think you get a much better look than the kit setup with almost no work involved.

The truck is really well done, but that diorama..... dude! What an amazing setting!

It's much harder to do a subtle weathering for a car that is just used but well maintained than to do a complete wreck, but you have succeeded very well here IMO, great build.
