Every now and then, you need to step out of your comfort zone. For myself, that means anything older than about 1968 or so. It's just not what I'm into, it's not what I normally build. But this one was something different that caught my eye for some reason.

Although I didn't build it as a clone, the inspiration was the 1960 Chev truck that Honda build to celebrate their 60th anniversary in North America. They restored a truck to look like one of their delivery vehicles from the early 60s. I dug the idea, dug the look, that was my starting point.

I build this box stock, using Tamiya paints. I added some plug wires and seatbelts, and that's about it. Interior on the Honda appeared to be varying shades of grey, which kind of aligns with what the kit instructions called for. I think I used 4 or 5 different colours in there.

I like how this one turned out.

Great looking basic work truck. Clean looking trim and the stark basic interior also looks spot on.

Very well done! I like the attention to detail, blacked out behind the grill and correct 6 cyl bowtie emblem. Only thing I would  to this gem is black tailgate letters.
