I have paint picked out but I haven't started the build yet. I think I know the direction I'm going to take it. So many interesting builds by great builders started already. Should be a couple of weeks before a update.

thank you all for the kind words. I got the rears assembled and brake lines ran. tires have been sanded and sidewalls scuffed. front end work is next. this has been an enjoyable build so far. I didn't build any models last year and it felt strange at first.

I got the cab, interior bucket and window glass cut apart. doors have been hung using rc airplane piano hinges. have to order drill bits for the front axle so the wheels pivot. build is coming along and thanks everyone for the kind words.

Very nice! Think its the 1st time I've seen the doors opened . Adds so much realism to a cool truck 

Are ya planning to hinge the hood panels too ?
