I haven't been working on vehicle projects as of late,
I am waiting for warm weather, and working out on the deck.

Here is a photo of one of my favorite models,
the 1928 Chevy pickup from Liberty Classics. 

I really like the black and orange color combination
on the CITGO promotional truck.

Regards, Dave L.

Here's a simple little job that only takes a few moments to do.

Add a large drop of Aleene's glue on the headlights, and wait a day.
Since it dries clear, there are now lenses on the headlights.

:)

Great idea for the headlights Dave,

thanks for sharing.

The holding method is equally inspired !

Another way to vary the vehicles on the layout,
is a simple top removal.

Two different vehicles can be made from the same diecast,
although here I've used two different models to illustrate the point.

Up to now I've been mostly interested in Liberty Classics' early Studebaker cars and trucks,
and have made them the subjects of my projects that adapt die-casts for large scale layouts. 

I am now looking at their Ford Model A trucks.
First I'll need to see if the Testor's Cement will remove the promotions...

What caught my attention especially,
was the well done spoke wheels on these models.

Front end details are nicely done, too.

I'll need to darken the radiator with a black marker,
and add Aileen's Tacky Glue for headlight lenses.

Fenders are black, so they'll not need painting,
body color may need a different color, though.

Regards, Dave L.

This Heinz pickle truck was also added.
Neither truck was expensive. 

Both were less that $16 each,
including PA sales tax (6%) and shipping.

The model's body comes apart easily with two screws.

Testor's Plastic Cement removed the promotions,
except the black date.

The body will need to be further taken apart,
and the body shell painted.
