Quick '39 Chevy Truck Part 4

Busy week - life get's in the way of hobbies! But I did manage to get a little bit done on my Chevy.

I made the resin Chevy bonnet for a PST 1/72 Ford 1943 truck kit which was a little narrower than the Valiant V3000 truck model. So I had to bulk out the new model with extra Milliput putty. This will need to be sanded smooth and then the details (like panel lines) added. But at least the bonnet fits now.

Next I made a very basic cab interior for the driver. Just a simple bench seat and floor...

Next: I'll work on the bonnet to make it a little more attractive than it is at the moment!


  1. Cripes mate. That seat and driver is top notch.

    Well done.

    1. Thank Paul. This model is more or less a 'quick(ish) bodge'. I just wanted to use up the resin Chevy bonnets my brother sent me and this was the simplest way I could think of using them. Hopefully it won't look too bad when it's finished. The driver was dead easy - it's a HO scale railway figure with a HAT head on it and the seat is just plasticard.
