This kit was given to me and decided to build it and give it bck to the the person who gave it to me. Is a good friend for the familly so why not. He is enjoying it!

I added many detail in the engine compartment. All scratchbuilt. This is one of my first model I built after getting back into the hobby. 

I did have any aftermarket parts to make it more realistic.

I also added tailgate chain

Angel Me again !! 

Love this one . I'd love to do a 'Warlock' version in metallic Black..

I have a "collection" ...Zip it! of hot Wheels ones in 1:64's , strangely none are red !! & the wood is bodycolour (?) but with a bit of detailing , they come out fine !

Dulchich Would love this I bet !!

WOW!  Great job!  After seeing your LRE, I pulled mine from the shelf and started rebuilding it.  What did you use for the air intake hoses?

i used electrical wire with a copper center to hold shape than wrap a small wire around and use the thinest bsi insta-cure glue to seal all the wire and paint it various blacks for contrast.

Nice job on this... back around 86' when I got my driver's license I was wanting a step side truck and my dad almost bought me this exact truck... but we were living in Indiana at the time and everything 8 years or older there was rusted from the salt and this one was particularly bad when we inspected it thouroughly.  I was really wanting it though.

The 2nd LRE today! Looking very cool. A nice, tidy build of this old chesnut.

Stunning replica of one mean little truck! Looks very true to the full-size version!

I owned a '78 LRE, and it was wicked fast, but very light in the back side! Made it feel as if it was floating at high speed!

Kit instructions? What's that??

MOPAR...by far!!!
