JIM, What you've done here looks pretty good. I have found for myself. That sometimes if I take this hobby too seriously I get bored, or go into a modelers slump. After all it is a hobby. Enjoy it. But at the same time build what you want and push your skills to greater heights.
Be Well Gator

Thanks, Gator. The build is coming along. It's not contest winner by any stretch of the imagination, but it's looking good. The grill/radiator, hood, & bed have been primed. Now if I can get some time, and the rain would stop, I'll get some black on it.
Finally getting back to this one. Wow! Has it really been almost a year? Decided to go a slightly different direction with the build as the C-Cab wasn't really fitting together all that well, and I got tired of fighting with it.
Still going with black. Hoping to finish it up this weekend if I can. Needs another coat on the top. Oh, and I need to paint the headlights.
Wow! It's finally done! The build was basically box-stock, but I didn't exactly follow the instructions. The only thing I added was the 1925 New York license plate. The body is Testors Gloss Black, and the canopy is Tamiya Semi-Gloss Black.
In the end, it was you typical AMT kit (flash in odd places; thick, out of scale parts; ejector pin marks in places that you can't get to; bullet-proof glass). Would I build another one? Probably. It was an interesting build.
