I built this truck when I was maybe 10, then blew it up with blackcats and saved some of the pieces for over 20 years. I took this little gluebomb, and gave it a real wood bed and squeezed all the glory out of it I could. I'll put up a build thread if there's some interest...

Don't you wish you knew then what you know now ?  Besides being a good line in a song it does describe  your trailer well. The weathering details here look great. I like how you got the splits in the wood bed and the crusty finish on the frame and everything else.

Great job, your weathering is nice. I blew a few up myself as a kid but never saved one to rebuild. Great idea with a great memory from your childhood.

Thank you, this is the most time I've invested into a piece

I was fascinated by the effects of explosions and always saved my junk. I had a wooden wine box filled to the brim with pieces and parts from countless kits I built. Going to have a sweet junkyard dio one day LOL

I like it! I have a dark red one sitting in the corner of my workbench to finish one of these days. Mine started out as a 56 Ford
