I am liking the 3 window cab Nick, did you have to re-do it after the yellow paint was shot? Looks like some final bodywork is needed where you filled in the windows.

The rally wheels and small block power should make this a nice little truck!

Actually I got the truck as a built up and used it as paint practice a while back, but yes it needs a bit of final work yet.

That'll look GOOD as a 3-window cab Nick!

Do you know where the Rallys with open lug detail came from?

Jeff there from the AMT '74 Corvette, I assume they were in some of the MPC Vette annuals also.

Cool Nick, I will be watching this one. Your skills have come a long way and I am sure you will do this one justice! You gonna keep it yellow or change the color?

Mike the yellow is gone, went with a baby blue, primer and semi black color combo.

NIce work so far!

I have the same kit in my stash and I am giving it the same treatment. Ratted shop truck. I even filled in the rear side windows to.

It's on the way back burner on my list though.

I will be watching your build.

So January was the last time I updated this build, hmmmmm been a while Eh? Since day one it's been a back-burner project, just something to work on while I wait for things. So here's the progress since the last time I updated this topic (took about 20 minutes to find it).

Added some bumper guards to the only bumper.

Scratchbuilt a class IV receiver for it, and yes you can pull the drop/rise out and swap it around.
