This is awesome. I've never seen one of these trucks before.

Looking forward to more.

I've been working on other projects along with this one, but I've gotten a little further, and established the "look" of the Dodge.

I'm ready to call it a D 700! Excellent workmanship. It's  a treat to see these  medium duties come to life.

I really love this Dodge Tom truck and I also love the direction this project is taking!  Could make an amazing drag car hauler... I know I have a bias!!!

Progress continues. The weathering effect looks strange in these pictures, I'm not sure why. I'm wondering now if I should stay with the flatbed or make this a box truck. What do you think?

Wow,  incredible weathering, looks exactly like a used truck looks like after 10 years and 100,000 miles or 20 years and 200,000 miles! IMO,  box trucks are sometimes too boxy. IMO,  a smaller body, like a grain truck  body, would be perfect. But as you know, they were never covered by  plastic, maybe too regional of a thing.

Looks great so far. Great detail on the weathering.

It's so beautiful Tom!  On my side I would prefer to see it as a flatbed as you had planned first.  It will be perfect in my shelf...  I love, I love, I love !!!

I think it is fine the way it is.  You have put so much time into it so far it would be a shame to cover it all up with just a box.  I go for the ramp truck as well since it would be movable to show off all the detail underneath.  Weather the bed with a light touch of rust here and there and just a small amount of dirt where tires might end up on a damaged vehicle.  A small amount of grease on the winch cable...……..etc.

If you do a flat bed, maybe you can build a load of parts to haul to a Mopar show (hoods, quarter panels, engines, etc.).

This board seems populated with encouraging builders. Thanks for your comments...it's a good for the motivation. That being said, if something looks like BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH, tell me so I can fix it.

I'd love to build a stock Swinger some day. When the time comes, mind if I pick your brain?

With all due respect Tom, I don't think you need anyone else's brain, as far as I know, your recreation skills are pretty impressive sir!!!
