'65 Chevy C10
Posted by KWT on Monday, January 6, 2020 2:54 PM

I've had this kit for a few years now. Been looking it over and over trying to figure out what direction I wanted to go with it. I've thought about stock.. thought custom.. thought slamming it... Even seriously thought about tubbin it out. But even though I've been wanting to build it so badly, I just keep putting it back on the shelf and putting it to the back of my mind...

That was until I got home from my bands NYE gig... At 4:05 am, after working all day, playing all night and tearing down til the weeee hours of the morning, I walked down the hallway to the "closet" and jerked it all the shelf and tore into it.  Sanding, washing and primer began.. The idea formed into a farm truck/barnfind/hand-me-down that has the beginnings of a resto job... ie: young kid with big ideas and a little bank account... or a father son project... or boys first truck.. I know, I know... I'm undecided. But they all work for this..

Primered with Tamiya Red primer.. then salted, painted with Tamiya Olive Drab and scraped.. then Tamiya weathering powder.

As always, thanks for looking.

Very cool. I like the style of this build. Nice weathering effect.

I'm not a fan of patinered or weathered vehicles, but this C10 looks good.  Good assembly and detailing!
