Every now and then, I get motivated to take a look at building a kit of a vehicle I might not normally consider building. In this case, it is a mid-Ď60s pickup truck. This isnít a subject I know much about, and it isnít the usual thing most people would expect would turn my crank, so to speak. However, the kit itself is actually really nice and I wanted to try something different.
I found this Revell 1964 Fleetside at a local swap meet and couldnít resist. Itís actually a really nice kit, but itís giving me trouble trying to figure out some things. Itís almost impossible to find examples on the net that ARENíT customized somehow, so if anyone has any links or info they can share with me Iíd appreciate it.
1.) Is the engine supposed to be Chevy blue? They say orange on the instructions, but Iím sure thatís wrong.
2.) I think I read that if you got two toning, you got the whitewalls and body-coloured wheels. Is that correct?
3.) There is a chrome group for these trucks, but I think itís separate from the side trim. If you got chrome grille and bumpers, is it true you got the chrome hubcaps too? Could you get this without the side trim?
4.) The box shows that thereís some kind of paint/chrome around the grille. However, I canít tell if itís supposed to be chrome or white paint. Not all examples seem to have it. Any ideas?
Check out the kit at the link below, so you can see the exact model of truck Iím talking about. I want to build this one next, so Iím hoping you guys can help me out!
