Wow what a ripper truck that will be. What other parts will you use and from which kit/s?

tezza43,it look's like it was molded after the 50 ford pickup the one that's just just came out again,u could build it as a coe pickup,but I will be building it as a prime mover with single diff under it,with a flathead engine,going to build up my own chassis for it,would look good as a cab chassis with ramp on the back of it.the 48,49,50 coe 's look the same.got to find a 1/25 scale ruler.
