HI all, trying to get used to the forum. Figured I would share one of my builds. I started building when I was about 10. Used to compete hard core when I was younger, but got into the real thing and dont have much time any more. I think I've built about 300ish kits over the years.
Anyway, this is one I had sitting in a box for years and just never finished. I finished it to try and get motivated to work on them more so the built is some what simple.
Kit was originally an AMT Hot Rod dually and I decided to change a few things. I have about 6 of these kits. Also doing a build of my tow rig, 1989 GMC 4x4.
-Standard cab, interior tub, tail lights from step-side kit
-grill from 454ss kit (not chromed)
-bed, grill, hood, rear roll pan, front bumper from Hot Rod Dually kit
-frame... looks like crap but I didnt care! haha.. front half Dully, rear half 454ss
-Seats from Fujimi Honda Civic kit
-Wheels AMT Snap Slammers Rambler (I think)
-head light covers made from film negative (going for that mid 90's look)
-Paint Model Master GT-S Blue
Box was shorted, cab was shaved, and everything color matched. Like I said, just simple. I had another 100 kits in boxes, too many kits, not enough time... haha
