    Looks great. I love the foot. LOL

    Thanks. I knew I had to paint it up like a real foot.

    One of the better versions I've seen of this beast. Nice work.

    Thank you!

    Gary is the master of fade paint jobs so he's the ideal person to have done the body. You took it up from there and the result is a really sharp rendition.  It shows why this is such a classic kit.😎👌

    Also, for me, it's on my list of all-time great parts kits!

    Gary is an amazing painter and a great guy to talk with.

    Thanks for the compliments on my part. I love this kit as a parts kit too.

  2. I got this painted body in a trade. It has been painted, decaled, and cleared by exceptional model builder Gary Seeds. I scratchbuilt the headers out of brass tubing and ran a chute cable to the top of the roll cage. Other than that, it is box stock.

    Looking for some parts for the Revell Ford Thunderbolt. I need parts 20, 06, 59, 61, 42, 40, 54, 55, 60, 62, 57, 46, 38, 45, 43, 50, 37, 32, 39, 31, 35, 47, 36, 12, 98, and 90. Not sure if I can buy these parts, but basically, this kit was robbed of its parts by the previous owner. I would like to make this a nice, complete kit. Please let me know if I can get these parts!

    Thanks

    I have a bunch of leftover parts from a couple of these kits. Let me look at my instruction sheet and see what I have.

    I have to admit I wasn't sure about this one. Lots of odd design elements to pull together. However, it does look like you're getting there!

    Thanks! I appreciate the honest opinion. I doubted (and in some ways still doubt) it myself. Part of me still wants to toss it aside and start on another project but I also want to see how it will turn out. I mean, I did spend $3 at the dollar store to buy glasses for bubble tops! Can't back out after an investment of that size.

    I received three sets of dually wheels and tires from Moebius / Pegasus. I am not sure what I will use them on, but wanted to grab them while they are available. I got the chrome because that gives me the option of stripping and painting them if I decide to go that way. They are the same price as plain and are very reasonable IMHO.

     

    I didn't know that these were available. Thanks for the info.

    I got one side finished on the rear fenders and I think it came out pretty good.  I'll complete the other side but wait on the front fenders as I'm still doing body work on the cab.

    That looks good. Just what I had in mind. You can also run a flat file or sanding stick over the top of the strips either before or once they are in place if you want to take down a bit of the roundness and make them just a bit more flat.

    That Sky and Gun Metal combo will look great!

    This is interesting, I'm following along. I think the rear window would look better as a half oval to mimic the rear of the cab. 

    Thanks for the comment and following along.

    I agree completely. My plans were to change the shape in upcoming sessions once I figure out the bed layout so as not to make some thing that may need to be revised.

    One thing I had contemplated was raising the bed height to the level of the highest point on the bed currently. Then adding an arched wall that would mimic the rear of the cab, but lower in height for the tonneau cover to attach to. If I do that a rear window may not be in the cards.

    I know what you asked for, but Gerry's question is relevant. Aren't the RevelloGram Chevy stepside and the GMC fleetside the same underneath? Ithink that most of us would more likely to have the GMC parts in the parts bin.

    I took a look tonight and it is the same frame in the GMC plowtruck. Should be a bit easier to find.
