Here is a New Ray Mustang dated 1999. The doors open but the hood and trunk are fixed.

Nice cars and I like New Ray quality too. I have the black boxes, City Cruisers you show earlier here.

My wife has a display in the Kitchen on the buffet/Hutch. Over the winter she had a 1:24 scale tin truck that looks sort of like a Ford but is not. It is just generic. This spring she wanted something a bit smaller. She chose a 1952 Dodge Pick-up truck by New Ray. It was on eBay for cheap so I bought it for here. Here it is.

She wanted it painted a light blue that she has used before. I was hesitant on using this color but it turned out better than I thought it would. Here it is primed.

It is held together by 4 little screws. I lost one on the floor of my shop and can't find it. Oh well, it still holds together.
Here it is after painting.

And now the completed truck. Window and interior were in great condition. The bumpers had been broken off on each end but that does not matter. I replaced the headlights with Jewels I picked up at Michael's which is a huge crafting store here in Canada. I detailed it minimally and toughed up the hub caps.
Here is the finished product.

I guess I should show the base. I did not take the rust off as no one will see the bottom.

nice tidy up of that old truck, it looks like somebody did the bumpers that way on purpose to 'toughen up' the truck a bit like removing the bumpers from your mk1 escort here in the UK.

Great colour compliments the truck very well
