Finally pulled this one off of the shelf of doom and finished it up about half an hour ago! I guess a rainy weekend was the motivation I needed. I say finished but I really mean done for now🙃. Still need a source for mirrors and add an exhaust. Used the engine from the Revell GTS Dart to represent a 400 big block truck. I mixed up Tamiya acrylics for Mopar engine blue, but for whatever reason, its showing a lot darker than it really is ( I guess my lack of picture taking ability is showing through). The body was sprayed with Tamiya AS-9 RAF Dark Green and the white is Tamiyas primer cleared with ts13. The box is a resin piece I bought off eBay about 10 years ago. The rest of the kit is Little Red Express. I think the tailgate represents an earlier truck(72-76?) but it was all I had at the time I started building this five years ago. The bumpers grill, and rims were stripped of their kit chrome and sprayed using Alcad chrome. I added the upper chrome piece and the lower trim to represent an SE? trim package. I added the drip tray/ trim as the kit one was barely visible, l also should of bmf'd it as well. I also drilled out the molded in headlights and added some parts bin pieces. Comments, criticism welcomed.

Great looking OEM style build. The paint looks like something that Dodge would have offered and the finish looks real smooth. Nice clean chrome trim.

Excellent build. Great color choice!

Just remember, don't mix radials and bias-ply tires

Lol. Good eyes. Was wondering if anyone would notice. I lost one tire, it'll pop up in a month or so......right?
