Ok, this was a salvage job on a kit someone else had started. I stripped the baby blue paint off & sprayed HOK Organic Green Pearl over black & added aftermarket tires & wheels. Hope you enjoy.

Very nice build on one of my favorite old kits! Funny thing, I've had a bunch of this issue (opening hood) that I've used for parts restoring old Craftsman issues, but I've never built one.

I like this one, Nice resto.

I too have the Craftsman kits. an Original Styline

& a Desert Race series "El Ranchero Grande" to restore.

I Might build an open hood issue when the Mobeus Ranger pickup

with the 6 is released.

Thanks for the great comments! I will post some more of my older builds for you to check out. I'm glad you like my work, I've always loved building models & I'm very happy to see a lot of young guys are getting into it. It means the hobby will survive after all us baby boomers are gone.
