Here are some pictures of a 1/24 Monogram 40 Ford Pick-Up slot car that I just finished recently. The top photos show the start of the project and then the finish. I used some Monogram wheels from a Tiger chassis because I felt they looked better and I made the wheel inserts. This was a difficult project to start but it ended pretty well.

Yeah, now I do. It wasn't there the last time, really! Anyway, stunning piece of truckism. With a background, you'd never be able to tell it from the real thing...... :shok: :D

Chris, a real beauty :D especially considering the starting point. Not a criticism but I would have addressed the front bumper bracket slots. Tell me, what does a 55 gallon drum of clear go for these days :laugh2: You must go through that stuff like water :o Keep these coming ! Joe
