This is a project I've had on my brain for quite a while. Not sure how far this is gonna go as I have a terrible tendency to wander off from project to project, but it will get done eventually. 

I bought 2 of the reissue Revell Honcho Ice Patrol kits and did the body mods a couple years ago. I ran into a couple issues and it went back in the box until this week...a buddy of mine is building one and he got me interested in it again.

So I cut the bed away from both bodies and added Evergreen sheet to fill the void in the back cab wall. Then both boxes were cut up to lengthen the bed by about 14mm (9/16"). The frame was also lengthened the same amount. I'm building this as a 3/4 ton 4x4 so I picked up a set of resin 8 lug steel wheels and will be using some parts box tires.

Today was the 1st mockup. Stay tuned.
