This is the last thing that I should be doing but have had this idea for a while and while shopping for more gamer bits came across a piece i could not pass up that added to it so I bought it and will start this now.....Not sure if it will stay a 50 chevy, may try a 55 ford pickup but this 50 model gives the general idea i have for the truck, may add a trailer, may not, time will tell..

Made a trip to hobby lobby and came up with these cool pieces that I will put in a trailer behind the pickup and make it look like loot from the tombs...

Thanks Chris,

Ok I finally decided on a truck for this build. I was undecided for a while for a number of reasons, but have decided that the revell '56 ford will work, I like the shape of the cab and roof line for this project, plus it already has opening doors that will save me a lot of time creating working doors for this build.

The only thing I do not like is the fact that after buying three kits to get a kit that is not warped in the cab or frame area, which in all three kits need a lot of work to straighten the frame and cab area. That sucks but can be overcome.

my new years res is to finish the aztec warrior, the strippers delight and this one. Decided that there was way to much work on the revell 56 ford due to warpage and the fit of the doors so im going with this truck the amt 53 ford pickup.

I am on the final leg of finishing the Aztec Warrior so I am getting a renewed interest in this build. I have had a problem getting inspiration for this one and have gone thru 5 different trucks for this build but am settling on the 1950 chevy, i am starting to carve the Egyptian eye in the roof. here is where I am at now and more to come now that the aztec is 95% done.....20140904160533_zps32505c01.jpg

well after going thru about 6-9 trucks decided to go with the 1965 chevy pickup, getting some resin casting on and finally getting a feel for this build.

ok getting back into this one, spent some time opening up the doors, I really did not want to do it but it gives such good access to the interior by doing this so I went for it.

also playing with ideas for the trailer with the 32 on it which I will call the pharaohs rat rod, it wont leave much space for the other goodies taken from the tomb but ill figure that one out later......

decided to go for cutting out the doors....
IMG_1346_zpsab1972a4.jpg
this is just an idea for the doors, it may stay this way or go another route, this is the part of the build of just playing around with it to gain ideas.......
IMG_1343_zpsd5aa05de.jpg
another idea for the bed, mocking it up and toying with ideas....
DA747CCF-F2FC-48D6-82A7-430A1669C007_zps
mock up of the engine, mummy machine air cleaner and pulleys from the ends of guitar strings, they are gold so that will work out good with the overall look and paint job which should be off the wall on this one i hope.

Very much looking forward to following this build, and I'm hoping you're your going to build that 32 as well.

Thanks Bill yes going to do something with it finding out its a horribly engineered kit the dash board does not even come close to fitting the body.

making an interior with a hieroglyphic back drop may do that on the 32 as well.

Thanks Jose I usually do been having a real hard time with inspiration on this, done a lot of searching on line and see a lot of the artifacts that came from the tombs and the tombs them selves but very hard to wrap it all together in a model format. Even easier getting inspiration for the strippers delight (short of hitting a strip club that is) but this one not so much......
