'73 Dodge is a kit bash--'78 D-100; resin pickup box; Modelhaus '73 grill, hood, and dash; '78 Warlock chassis pan and suspension.

'78 is out of the box.

'77 CUCV is a kit bash--Thunders Truck is all I remember.

Great looking trio. The 4x4 work truck has a very realistic looking finish without being overdone. The Yellow truck looks very clean and a great calling card for a business to use. The Camo truck needs a rifle rack in the rear window and it would be ready to head out.

I so remember that CUCV from one of your write-ups in one of the old model car magazines in the 80s.

I seem to recall a yellow, rusty, beat up, 4x4 1972 Chevy pickup with a horse rack and tobacco droppings. Wasn't that yours too?

Great looking Dodges Terry! I'm pretty sure you started the weathered look trend way back in the 90s with your Cowboy Cadillac at GSLMCC. Looks like you still do it best. 

I'm inspired to finish my '78 short bed! I hope our paths cross again someday soon.

Very cool stuff! Love the trucks; hard to pick a favorite, but the weathering on the blue one really makes it real to me. Your book on detailing pickups was one of my first purchases when I got back into building/collecting models. Lots of good info for modeling in general in that book. Thanks!
