      Lindberg kit which I have had for a while.   Parts are from the usual sources, RSSlot wheels, Darts inserts, BWA 050 motor, scratch chassis.  Runs well, quite smooth.  Added a oak strip bed for effect.  Kind of experimented on the paint, dark red first coat, sanded then red on top.  I was look for an aged look but not sure it came off :unsure: .

      Very nice looking truck Dave! A perfect Hotrod.

      Love the colour too. It really sparkles. :good:

      What do you mean think outside the box? Where did you even get a box? Where's my box?
      Even though I may be new at this myself. How can I help you build your car?

      Great looking little truck Dave. Hope mine turns out as well. What did you use for the wood in the bed?

      Thanks Michael, I used a few strips of thin unfinished oak veneer I had laying around.  Then used Minwax natural stain/varnish on it.  Cut it to size and glued to two cross pieces.  After I was happy with the fit I then used the Minwax, then just dropped it in.  It was a snug fit, so no need to glue into box.

        Hard to tell from the pictures, but is the bed made from individual narrow strips glued together edge to edge or a couple of pieces scribed to look that way. Looking forward to seeing it when this current silliness is over. :yahoo:
