BJ and the Bear


Recommended Posts

The build was a bear for sure. I thought the truck was headed to the shed for a few years a couple of times. There were several setbacks and some vacation time but the build is finally finished. Turned out better than I expected.

Looks fantastic! But one critique, the steps are on the wrong side of the cab. They need to be flipped!

Thanks Alex. I will get the flipped around.

Outstanding job.  I have this kit with the BJ decals too.  How did you do the pointed-down (curbed) red part at the front so they could match the black stripes?

Thanks Angel. I traced the decals onto tracing paper, transferred that to a piece of low tack tape and applied to the truck. Make a couple photo copies of the decal sheet.

This has to be the amt version (small bumper, non-opening cab doors) with a shortened frame, isn't it?

That was my guess, but I've done enough part swapping to never take it for granted!
