I love the design of pickup trucks from the 1930s until the late 1950s. They were not fancy, filled with lots extras or boasted luxury interiors. They were trucks: rough, tough and utilitarian. And yet they were true works of art. Function equals form.
The '37 Ford Pickup Street Rod 2' n 1 Special edition 1:25 Scale model from Revell recreates one of the best. No matter what version you customize: classic blue with chrome trim and bumper package and side-mounted spare tire or the canary yellow "woody' with special full chrome trim, special red wheels and custom grill, you can't loose.
Both feature full interior details, complete upper and lower carriage accuracy and opening front hood and require a 2 Skill level (paint and glue).
The second car I ever owned was a white '67 Chevy Impala. It needed some body work but the interior was spotless, the huge V8 engine delivered plenty of horse power and it was built like a tank.
Revell's California Wheels '60 Chevy Impala Hardtop 2' n 1 is one of the last 'finned' motorcars with full front and rear chrome detailing for bumpers, lights side trim, window trim and a choice of two wheel types: chrome and black.
Open the hood of this classic beauty and you'll be pleasantly surprised by the perfectly scaled down engine that includes rubber hoses. Turn the car to its rear and be prepared to be dazzled by its aerodynamic wing swept fins, overabundance of chrome and the half dozen protruding rear lights and signals.
Throw in the interior details including the dash, instruments and seats and you've got a real sweet piece of automobile history.
Monogram presents its 1926 Mack Bulldog Tank Truck that includes so many fun features it will take your breath away.
Get a load of its front and rear open wheel chain driven wheels, protruding front bumper open passenger cab, front swept engine compartment (that opens), full under carriage super structure, decaled tank with rear and top chrome valves. It's a beast!You choose the customizing as a Oil Truck or Express Delivery truck. Clocking in at 1:24 Scale the model requires glue, paint and decal application.
