MY 1972 CUSTOM STEPSIDE PICK-UP
This is actually the first completed model I have doen with some degree of difficulty and imagination for a sometime,I hope ya like whats been done as a lot of thought and time went into this model....
I put a ton of work in to this truck and hope everyone like s it,I shaved the cab,chopped the top,made a cowl hood,added a Chevy 454 LS-6 EFI Engine,plumbed and wired,Truck is painted HOK Blue Pearl over black base & topped offf with Omni automotive clearcoat,added the Injected badges fro detail master as well as alot of other detail master photo etched parts like Interior amplifier,gauges,AM/FM CD player,aluminum steering column i turned on my lathe and stainless less dash knobs,2 tone interior,kens fuzzy fur flocking for carpet,added headrests,photo etched foot pedals and resin Hurst shifter.The bed was detailed with Bare Metal foil and microscale decal film,tire and wheels came from the 66 chevelle wagon kit,a combination of big and littles with brake rotors and calipers all the way around,fexterior fuel cap is turned aluminum,molded front bumper pan into body,modified engine bay a little to accept that big LS-6 and radiator and air induction system,wired the battery,had to use the tranny from the old kit and adapt it to the newer engine as well as the oil pan,think that might cover the details hope you enjoy it.......
An outstanding final product and the showroom presentation is extremely realistic. It is nice to see the detail that goes into some of the parts of the model that could quite easily be overlooked such as the dashboard and interior. The paint work is great and the overall standard of the model keeps the bar high.
Goda Like Chevy's
Top notch build. Great setting for the final model too. You know you have built it as you have provided pictures during the build. Lots of work and attention to detail is displayed here. Great work on the dash board and that is one good looking box floor. Do I like Chevy's back then, Yes, I had a '69 1:1 but not where near as this model depicts.
Kudos on a job well done.
There's something really cool about the customization of a flatbed truck. The realism in the engine bay with the wires finish the inner workings of the car so well. The paint is superb.
I'll never be this good but I'm inspired to try.
