After I customized a couple of Hot Wheels the desire for detail led me to buying a couple 1/43 kits.
I started on a Zinger-style Nash Metropolitan.
Eventually someone made a real Pro-street style one.

In the meantime, heres a few more pics of the truck.

Mark out a bed on a scrap of aluminum, poke some holes for lights, and bend it up.

And a big ole dob of JB weld- you see, there's a hinge there. It's a tilt deck.

Getting close. Still have to do the trailer lights, the hitch for the truck, and maybe a few small details.





Need to figure out the tilt deck part too. I want a permanent piece on the trailer that will hold it up.

Little more done. Made some "lights" out of red cardstock.





And then camouflaged the backside with some silver paint.



Still need to make the hitch.

Looks good, but the middle and forward side markers should be amber.

Yeah, I thought about doing amber lights but around here, all of the trailer's I see are nothing but red. It will be easy to change the colors later if I want. Trying to keep it simple on the first one, I plan on making some more detailed trailers eventually.
