Well guys, I have been working on this one for about a week, tweaking this, shaving that, and this is where I am at.

I shaved the hood, getting rid of the rib going down the center, got rid of the front emblem too.

Hinged the hood, used the last of my brass rods though :lol:

Looks pretty cool so far Clay, glad to see I'm not the only one who has removed the center rib from the hood.

I like the way you hinged the hood forward, Clay. I have a '56 Effie on the wrokbench and I need to try a hinge like yours.

I am still debating. Not sure yet. I will have to see what it looks like on the wheels and tires I have picked out.

Yeah I have no idea why I have been putting it on there for pictures... I could have at least picked the nice one.

You are really cranking them out Clay, this one looks great! I would think you would have the models packed up for the move North by now but am glad that you haven't !

Keep them coming, I need some motivation!

Thanks again for your service and have a Merry Christmas.

Are you going to finish the inside of the trailer and make a diorama thing out of it?

There's a good post on here somewhere (I don't search so good) about making a hitch receiver for the truck if you don't have one already.

I DO like that blue, but the paint shop needs to get that trailer cleaned up if they want repeat business on these customs! :)
