I built this AMT 1972 GMC Stepside a while back and it cooperated easily with everything I wanted to do to it. It had been waiting patiently in my stash since I got it back in the 90’s. I’m glad I waited to do this one now instead of back then, as my skills are more developed now versus then.  Once I started on it I couldn’t put it down, I was on a major roll. Besides the Stepside kit, I used parts from a Foose pickup and a Revell 2013 Camaro, a Revell 1967 Chevelle, an AMT 1967 Chevelle and several other kits. It is covered with Dupli-Color Toyota Yellow and clear with the engine painted with Dupli-Color Naples Gold. The interior was covered with Krylon Almond satin and Khaki satin and I tried to pull off a wood grain steering wheel. It doesn’t have one single aftermarket part on it but it does have some scratch built ones. This one was fun one for sure.

Nicely done Tony.  Boy do those colors work well together.  I really like those Krylon colors on the interior.  Great job.

Beautiful looking paint color and finish. I like the modern custom build style. Great looking engine details along with the interior, I'm also a big fan of the short step side bed trucks.

Crisp! That is a fantastic looking  little truck. I’m not normally a fan of yellow, but it looks really good, especially with your interior colours. Nice work on adding some clean detail to the simplified chassis. 
 

 Here’s, Steve

Looks great from every angle, did you decant and airbrush the paint?

Thank you for the compliment. 

I didn’t decant the paint, I just sprayed it with the rattle cans.
