The transfer case, trans, axles and front diff came from the amt EXT Cadi.. The motor came from a Revell 69 Camaro...

That's a real nice looking Chevy! Are the wheels from the Caddi EXT? They really suit the truck. Nice work!

Nice build Dave. It's pretty cool to see build ups of everyday vehicles, Especially one of my favorites, A full size GM quad cab truck :) . It's a bummer nobody cast the parts in resin to convert it to a GMC. My wifes step dad has a GMC 3500 dually in your 1;1 body style. Great job on the over all build !! I really like the plow.

That is coming along quite nicely. I would suggest that you consider resin casting that plow as there are members here who would probably buy one (or more!) or you may want to have one for your next project.

I agree that it is a shame that no one has cast a resin crew cab in the current body style, I see many possibilities.

Not sure if you are going to duplicate those plow lights but if not, Craig Hosfeld (mannyclub on this forum) casts some nice ones that I bought earlier this year. Clean castings and nice decals for the lights!

Can't wait to see more of this one!

Thanks for all the comments..... Hey Mike I have considered it with the truck and been in contact with one of the casters, but he was not sure how well it would do.... So I built it so he could see it finished. If he likes it I will build one more and send it to him.. I have not tried to cast myself so I don't know how it would turn out, and it is not exact I would need to build another before I could cast it...... Thanks for the suggestions I

appreciate it..... Now on to the headlights I did build them let me know what you guys think... First the 1:1......DSCN1263-vi.jpg

And here are the ones I made.....

Where did you get that body? Did you make it or is it resin?

I made it from two Revell 99 Chevy Silverado Ext cabs was able to make the crew cab and a regular cab.... Same with the frame and interior so I still have two kits to build which is nice..... The four wheel drive and rear door handles are from the AMT Cadillac Esclade EXT...

Looks very realistic there David! Those lights are near spot on replicas of the real thing. That looks like it is very close to being done and ready for the first snowfall!

Hope you are successful in getting that crew cab body cast, I think it would sell!
