Liking it so far

 

What rims are those?

It is a set I created and Replicas & Miniatures cast for me along with the tires.

Thanks Anton !  I did the front by making my own grille , modifying the bumper and using headlights from a '77 Monte Carlo .

I clearly need to focus!

 

These vintage stock pickups look great. The  Chevy  looks spot on for the factory Klondike Gold, is it a custom mix or a  rattle can color? Paint job looks fantastic.

Thanks,  these old trucks are my favorites currently.  The Klondike Gold is simply Ace Hardware metallic gold rattle can that's close enough for me.  I'm having good luck using all Ace products for primer,  paint and gloss clear. It takes some color sanding and polishing for a good finish.

Thanks Bill!  It would be a pretty cool ride in 1:1  Hopefully you had a look at the finished build under glass.

First yp is a 64 I started quite a while ago and got burned out on.

Next 3 pics are of a Honda Odyssey that I got from my buddy that someone had destroyed and I pieced it back together. (Third pic in the group is what I was given to fix and the first two are where it is now.)

Last two pics is my creation from parts box pieces.

I have a few others, but this is enough for now.

Later-

down n dirty unfoosed 56 f100 I just started. sectioned until I liked the look and the bed is starting as the quarters from a monogram 55 ford delivery. It's becoming a late 50s radical custom. I still need to set the wheelbase, bed length, height etc. itll have canted quad headlights (hence my wanted ad) ³
