Nothing new, had to take time off for the holidays, family stuff, and working on my current 1:1 project; as the winter is AZ outdoor activity time. I get more indoor stuff done during the summer. I'll be back to finish this one up soon. I always finish a project thread.

OK, where were we? I had two windshields, both glue burned and one cracked. I smoothed the best one, and vacuformed a replacement:

I took the least glue-bombed interior, sanded some damage smooth, and used it along with Monogram Fox Mustang Recaros from the parts box, and a rally console with thermos bottles from an AMT '64 Falcon.

Painted it all up this afternoon with Testors spray bombs. The colors are Some Kind Of Blue and Some Kind Of Pewter. I didn't want to use the same colors as the exterior. The dash was masked and the faces shot with Tamiya semigloss black.

Looking for a decal sheet from the new issue kit for the gauge faces. Further detailing will be basic, but it will have navy blue flocking and a CB radio.

'73-'74 and '75-'77 are different. I don't have any others, but Kris Morgan of M.A.D. Resin offers both styles, very cleanly cast. I've seen them, recommended.

Interior came together pretty well. I like how the center A/C vents on this dash are pointed at the driver and passenger.

Admittedly, I've been laying low on this project because I'm not crazy about masking for two tone paint jobs. Or really paint jobs in particular. The spoon test looked promising:

So the silver was applied first.

Next: Blue.

Spectacualr project!! I love it.

I will have to keep your tutorial on the moving of the rearwheelwells for my own future projects. I think this truck is going to look fantastic when done :)

Thanks very much, Gentlemen.

Feeling the blues!

Lotsa blue on this Ferd, but it'll be broken up with lots of chrome. Chrome makes everything better!
