This is going to be my scale representation of the truck I would build if I had an unlimited bankroll.

The build process begins.This is the start onf my full kustom frame.To get the 1:1 C10's to lay out you have to "Z" the front frame section which you can see I've done here.

Yeah I'm sticking with these wheels.They are the closest I could find to a Centerline Smoothie.Hopefully my engine and rear diff center section show up soon so I can start dialing in the air ride set up.

Very interesting. Rick over at Scale Dreams must love you for that order. Who did you order the rear end from? I've been looking for a couple but can't find any.

Thanx I appreciate that.I'm not sure I'd say that.The rear centre section is actually from the AMT Rides edition 66 Novathat I sent to a friend and had it cast.I believe he is on here as slammdsonoma.

Got my frame built.

Sprayed a quick test hood to lay out my paint idea.The base is metal-speck silver,the skullz are gel pen and the top is metal cast red.

Here is a shot of the 502.It is sprayed with the same base and top coat as the test hood.
