|My brace of Valiant resin Ford V3000s...Can I make a Chevy '39 from one of these?|
What I'm doing is taking one of the Valiant resin 'ready to roll' Ford V3000s I bought and slapping my resin Chevy 39 bonnets on it. Bang! Model 1939 Chevrolet.
|I made these 1939 Chevy bonnets, can I get one to fit onto a Valiant model truck?|
As well as cutting off the truck bonnet I also started removing the integral resin base. I'll be converting the truck's cab into one that has interior detail (like I did with my 'Quick Valiant Ford V3000' project).
I'm going to try and improve on the way I modified the last Valiant Ford conversion I did. I think I can make a better job of removing the integral resin base while leaving more of the chassis detail. I also want to excavate the cab interior by going in through the bottom of the model (rather than simply drilling out the upper cab like I did with the 'Quick V3000' I did).
|In a way this was the easy bit. Tidying up the jagged join will be a bit harder.|
