Ertl's 1923 Chevy truck is another favorite model.

I really like the color of the van and the fact
that Ertl didn't put the chrome wheels on it.

Matching wheel color is always a plus on a model.

It is a negative that this model uses stickers for the
Hemmings promotions, which are not easily removable.

Repainting is necessary to make it ready for the layout.

Regards, Dave L.

Here are some projects I've described in this Thread.

Regrettably, projects like this are not possible for me right now,
so I hope to share photos taken along the way, and new photos, too.

Many thanks to those who have followed along in this thread.

Best regards, Dave L.

I've mentioned Ertl's Maxwell model and found
this photo of a before and after makeover.

The promotions are actually correct.

A real car did an endurance run from Newark NJ,
to Los Angeles in 1917 and set a record.

It took ten days and 16 hours.

:shocked:

Another shot of an Ertl Maxwell.

With the promotions removed,
and fenders not yet painted black.

The fenders were painted,
and I needed to add the folded top.

Wheels were painted a light tan.
I swapped tires, too.

Ertl's Ford Model T is a fun model to paint and customize.

Early ones come apart with screws,
but later versions might have 'rivets'.

I've done quite a few.

Here is one repainted,
and the parts of another model in its primer.

Regards, Dave L.

I put a stake bed on the Model T,
and kept the primer color.

Sunstar has Model Ts, too.

They are expensive,
but have opening doors, rear gate and hood,
and steerable front wheels.

I know of two versions,
this pickup and a tow truck.

Over the years a major issue with modeling trucks,
has been suitable wheels.

I was always on the lookout,
for anything that might work as a good truck wheel.

I came across these,
in the party favor section of the dollar store.

For a buck I took a chance that they might work.
Turns out they were too big and not suitable.

:td:
