1950 Chevy Pickup Texaco


Recommended Posts

Beautiful truck Ron, nice and used! And the bed looks great, it's hard to believe that's the kit part and not real wood!

Thanks Mike! That's just what I needed was some encouragement right now. I just returned from my club feeling kind of discouraged. One of the guys said it was the wrong color green and it needed bmf in the bed. Another guy said I could use it to pull a wide load with the front bumper. Then we had a discussion about baldness and what causes it. (I'm bald!) Why am I here? I love this Forum, it's what the Doctor ordered! Thanks again to all.

One thing I've learned after attending a bunch of contests is that some guys, when presented with something they couldn't do themselves, find a way to bash it. Sounds like you kicked their butts, and the only reply they have is to tear down what they can't accomplish!

Differences of opinion are just that, opinions, and like hind parts, everyone's got one and some stink. I like the way you did it. The BMF would be too shiny. The green looks fine to me.

Thanks Harry, I'm still working on some items for the bed. A couple of things about this kit made me think of you, it does have a generator bracket and it does have valve stems! I would like to add tailgate chains and an inside rear view mirror. There seems to be a shortage of rear views in the kits lately.

God bless you! :lol:

Looks good to me, Ron. As far as those skid strips go, they are available for the 1:1 trucks in unpolished stainless from Mar-K, which looks virtually identical to what you've done.

BTW, the rear and right side mirrors were optional on the 1:1. Only the drivers side mirror was standard.

Thanks guys, I'm trying to decide weather to post the wrecker separate, after all it is more or less a Snap-Kit with very little detail. I've got plans to use more decals on it and take more pictures of the interior etc. I think it looks good on the shelf and if I ever get a hold of the Texaco decals for my "Joe's Power Plus" station. (it was suppose to be a Texaco when I ordered it). I'm thinking diorama maybe.
