  1. great weathering and work as always Mark! Nice Job! You are the wrecker King!
  2. I built this truck in October 2020. Around the time Eddie Van Halen passed away hence the VH license plate. Wheels are Z Force Modelworx
  3. looks like you have built another truck i see all the time. Great job of capturing that real life lived in look I see all the time on the roads in Kentucky! Great Job Al, keep building! 🙂
  4. I built this truck last April as a gift to a good friend of mine. Its a replica build of his actual truck. I used the Moebius kit, '61 resin grill by f/x resin, custom bed tubs, fuel cell, spider web gussets, hand crank, mustang rally pack, steering column, dash vents all 3d printed. wired engine, throttle linkage, battery, custom built sun visor, gearshift..all the custom decals. I will include some pictures of the 1:1 truck.
  5. so true on battery. I have done the bungee cord on the battery before. I never thought of it on this build. thanks for all the comments.
  6. Thanks everyone I appreciate all the comments. The seat was done using a image I found on google. I reduced it to scale and printed it out on a color printer, it was then cut to fit and white glued onto the kit seat.
  7. Finished this one in December 2020. I used the Fireball Modelworks F250 conversion parts. I also used Fireball Wheels and Tires and cab lights. Weathered the body using the salt technique and frame and undercarriage with various pigments and washes. Saddle Rug front seat cover, Yosemite Sam floor mats, and a bandana from the rearview mirror. I added plug wires and a fuel line and filter. I named this one the Holler Matriarch, because when nobody else can get out of the holler she can get you to town to get the Bread and Milk!
  8. very cool. I am currently doing the same build using the fireball parts. yours is truly inspiring. realistic weather... you done excellent job!
  9. This is a JUST WOW build with Details and cleanliness. A real inspiration to want to improve my skills. Nice Job! Excellent Truck
  10. I finished my 1964 Chevrolet C10 Pickup. I named this one Crissy Snow from Suzanne Somers character on the show "Three's Company" I hope you see the resemblance. My attempt at a mild weather original paint look that has been cleared over. yellow body Paint is Goldenwood yellow and the top of the cab is ermine White, & clear all from ScaleFinishes.com. LS Swap from the silverado kit. 3D printed Custom Frame, muffler exhaust, fuel cell, master cylinder and brake booster, plumbed brake lines and air lines. custom bed floor with a access to the suspension. Shadowcraft Customs 3d
  11. very nice. Clean Build. I appreciate all the work it took to make the lightning chassis work on the 60 cab and bed. Great Job!!!!
  12. Thank you. No I didnt use white glue. It is just thread laid on the sticky side of clear packing tape.
  13. Steve My Canopy was warped. I tried Hot water but I really never was satisfied with the fit. The interior is Vallejo Flat Earth, with Createx Matte Clear over it.
  14. those are just reflections. I caught the two shifters as I was assembly and the photo taken from above shows the shifter on the column removed. Thanks for appreciating the details! Thanks Slusher, the figure was ordered on ebay from the seller: Iceman Collections. Joel Mendoza. Than you to everyone. on to the next one....
