Old Farm Truck

Hey Everyone!

I just joined the forum, but I have been looking around for a little while now. Since I have been looking at everyone elses builds I thought I should share my latest one.

This started as an AMT 1972 Chevy Fleetside that I picked up from a garage sale and on the side of the box it had "parts" written on it. I bought it anyway and brought it home to find that there were almost enough parts to build two trucks; by almost I mean doubles of most parts, and none of others...

So since this wasn't going to be perfect to begin with I tried somethings on this one that I have never tried before. I started out with scratch building a flatbed for it. Then I took it one step further and tried my hand at weathering. So considering this was built with some missing parts, and a few first for me, I think it turned out alright.

The pictures were taken with my cellphone so I'm sorry if they are blurry.

Thanks for looking
