JeroenS Posted January 8 Share Posted January 8 Hi all! You probably know that I love the Blitzbuilds we have on this forum. Well, every now and then I like to do a little Blitzbuilding by myself. Set a time limit (in this case, the weekend), grab a kit, build it, and accept it with all its flaws. I love doing it. This time around, my kit of choice was Revell's Chevrolet Fleetside pickup. I like these kits, they're easy to build, and you generally end up with something very close to what the real car looks like. I've built the '65 Stepside a couple of years ago, in all white attire. But I wanted to go down a different path with the Fleetside. The only difference between these kits is the bed and the wheels, by the way. Here's proof that I actually started yesterday, honest I got the building and basic painting done yesterday, even with a 1,5 hour walk (it was nice outside) and a 1 hour nap in the afternoon ... Today was spent weathering and finishing all the little stuff that takes so much time. And there you have it. The straw is a little oversized, but whatever, there's something in the bed! I took down the rear wheels a little bit so there's some sagging going on. It's an old, old truck. Also, it looks like the bed sits a little wonky. But that's actually caused by the fact that I couldn't get that cab body to fit properly, no matter what I did. I had to stop because I didn't want to break anything! We'll just say the bed is sagging, the frame may have rotted out in places. This is a farm truck and it's had a hard life. The whitewalls are a nice touch. I wanted to experiment with a little patina. There's a colourful seat cover supplied in the kit so I used that. I didn't do anything to the engine or chassis, they're basically still in primer. I glued the hood shut because the fit is very poor and there's nothing to see underneath anyway. Full album here. Thanks for watching! 22 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
