When I first seen this kit when it was re-released recently, my thought's straight away were what a great candidate for a ute conversion. So sourced a couple kits from Model Round Up, then thought about it for a week as to how to approach things and how I was going to build it. First things first pick some wheels. After deciding the wheel's, they were fitted to some new 2mm brass axles. Then the ride height was roughed in. Still need to tweak the front and level things out a bit. Just how I like them, Low! Worked out how I was going to cut and re work the roof.
hello to all I wanted to make this kit that a friend had offered me in March, but not to do what he expected of me. After some research on the net, I found a UTE military version. I made a Woody version .... the project was launched ideal to present it to NNL EAST. I used Primer Tamiya for the first time. And ZeroPaints painting, I was bluffing by this painting! Without dilution top! Vernish hobby colors. The roof has been lowered, the body studs have been modified, ben in scratch with real wood ...... Seen at NNL EAST 2017.

Here's my new project. I'm going to cut away the rear of the Olds at the paint line. Close in the body like a pickup. Remove the rear Olds fenders and build them up so that they can be used on the bed. Slam it to the ground and use a blown Pontiac. I'm hoping to NOT have to alter the wheelbase, we'll have to wait and see. It will be custom, but with a ratty vibe. No colors planned yet. I may just go with red oxide primer or flat black.
