Hey all. Finally finished The Dodge. I scratchbuilt the frame, suspension pieces, shocks, 2 1/2 ton Rockwells, Optima, orbital valve, oil reservoir, wheels faces for direct-fit to the axles, etc. Thanks for lookin'. The build pics are in The Dodge album.

Excellent build! The weathering on the tires is great.

That engine sure looks clean for a truck with no inner fenders! :D

Very nice and well detailed. Sure wish there was a way to get this truck re-issued.

Thanks all for the compliments. It truly was a labor of love. I love what I do, no matter how long it takes...just ask jeffs396.

Kind of odd that the tires are caked with mud but there's not a speck of mud anywhere on the truck... not on the underside, not on the body... :blink:

Yeah Harry...they would get that way driving into the arena.....before the loud pedal was pushed.

Only thing you need is a drop of silver paint on the radiator cap....then start that MUTHA!!

AWESOME work as usual from you Larry! There's so many cool details to this that it's hard to catch them all now that it's built. The chassis is a model of it's own! I really like the treatment you gave the tires also. I'll have to give that a try sometime. Well done!

Nice job.

But, I agree with Harry. Half a job of weathering looks more incomplete than no weathering.

Thanks all for the compliments again. There are some items that I did overlook. I'm currently makin' inner fenders (imagine that engine bay after some muddin'), I missed the radiator cap...thanks Greg. And you're right...the tires were done pre-mud event. That's why they aren't loaded with mud...just like it was driven thru some. Harry & Danno-I appreciate the candor. Anthony & Roger (an old friend)-thank you for the comps.
