1959 Ranchero
Posted by spencer1984 on Tuesday, April 24, 2018 8:56 AM

I used Revell's '59 Galaxie Skyliner with a Jimmy Flintstone '57 Ranchero roof, MCG emblems, and lots of scratch building.  It was built to recreate Harry Dean Stanton's truck from Paris, Texas, and as a personal challenge to see if I could get it finished before NNL East (having started work on it mid-March).

Very nice build. You carried out this conversion very well. Nice work on the weathering, too. The 59 makes a great Ranchero.

Thanks! I was aiming for "distressed driver" more than "rolling wreck," so I tried to not go too heavy handed on the weathering.
