My God, it's perfect!
I do not know exactly how is this piece in the 1 / 1, but if I say that the piece is made of sheet steel and weighs 90kg, I think so!
Well, this promises a big finish.
Greetings.

Finally got some time this weekend to work on it some more. Although it's only a small update, it took quite awhile to fab up the pieces. Just need to add in the hardware and the trans tunnel will be done.

WORK IS INCREDIBLY CLEAN!
It is beautiful to see (more pleasant than a girl on the beach )
Seeing this I think I have nothing to do with the styrene.
Courage, you are almost!

Thanks Padre...styrene is not difficult, just takes alot of time to to get it just right. I'm a perfectionist...which sometimes is not the best thing. Building this is something I've dreamed about since 1985.

Found a little time last weekend, but work had me tied up so I couldn't quite finish. I'm off on Mon and Tues, so I'll finish what I have in the pics below.

I needed a little change from shifter section and I was dying to do the tailgate. I started with the rear floor supports and the Valance panel.


Then the surround and the tailgate.



The tailgate just needs the final details...the center "plate", chain hook tabs and chain/hooks. I've built it to be functional, but I may glue it in place to make the body stronger. Besides, what would I do with a functional tailgate on an RC, other than the coolness factor.

Finished up the tailgate, subfloor braces, mated the front and rear halfs together, installed the trans panel and started the toolbox. It's amazing how stiff the floor gets after all the supports are in. More to come...

a couple of detail shots...chains will be added later after the paint is done.


floor supports for the additional 20" in the 6

mating complete

start of the toolbox compartment


Just had to see sitting on the chassis

Thanks for all your awesome comments. I think I'm starting to enjoy working with styrene...this being my first full-on build from the ground up. These large builds are nice for the details that you can do.

I still have a long way to go, and some parts are going to be builds all their own, like detailing the wheels, vacu-forming the hood and fenders, the grill, and the side panels. Later on I'm planning a soft top, and of course all the detail accessories. So stay tuned...
