I'm going to try my first ratted out truck.I'm using the new straight 8 engine from Norm Veber and bits and pieces from other trucks.The cab has been chopped and sectioned,the frame was Z'd.More pictures to come.

I agree with the Madman; that motor is sweet, and you've put it to good use here.

Are the winches scratch built? They look perfect here.

The wheels are from a Dodge Ram dually and the tires are from the parts box.My avatar is a model i did which is BADFISH resin body from Jimmy Flinstone.Ricky Couch did the master of it and it was my tribute to him.Here is a side shot of it.

Your weathering looks like it was done with a brush. What happened with the salt effect?
