  1. Well it looks great, especially with the high gloss applied over the top👍
  2. First time browsing through trucks here and came across this one..Amazing!... So fun to look at all the incredible detail.... Very clean, nicely done work. Can’t imagine how much time goes into some of these trucks..wow!
  3. My first time on here looking at big trucks- I’m always in the cars. Man, this thing really is cool I must say! Great paint, and details...it looks very real, I love the careful balance of weathering and cleanness. Super!! -I am interested in knowing how you got the mottled wood effect on the dash and steering wheel ???
  4. Thanks Rex...lovin’ the vibe of those vintage photos! As for the build, the parts have been fitting together beautifully so far except for the driveshaft was a bit too long, but that’s a simple fix with the x-acto.

  6. The days that I hate the most here are when it’s about 25F, but the wind is ripping along at about 45 mph with gusts of 60+. Happens all the time in the winter here!🙁
  7. Hahaha..... you guys! Winter in Tennessee.... C’mon😂
  8. It is certainly a “glue bomb”. There are big globs holding the suspension parts together. I know I could make it awesome again, but I have way cooler things to work on at least for the next year or so, one of which is a fresh Revell Cobra.
  9. My thought is ditch the mesh thing (it’s not noticeable in the real pic), respray the piece in matte black, add a bit more yellow to the color and dilute it down quite a bit and spray it over the black.
