That is a jaw dropper Steve!! Excellent work on the chassis and exhaust. What's the exhaust made from? Aluminum tube or solder?

Thanks everyone for the great comments.

The exhaust is made from solder and the tips are aluminum tube.

Looks like this thread got moved, it was in the "under glass" section. I guess it's not considered a "model" since it is half die cast.

Oh well, it was just as fun and rewarding to build as any plastic kit I've put together.

No, it's not that Steve. It's because it's a pickup. You can post drag cars,NASCARs,motorcycles,airplanes or whatever else you like in "Under Glass,but don't dare post photos of a pickup! It's also funny how some pickups get moved and other don't.
