The Maxwell is finished. 

It is a nice model and is one of my favorites. 

Regards, Dave L.

The boys have pulled up beside the new shiny Maxwell in their older one to check it out.

Work is finished on the Studebaker truck. 

I painted the wheels, and it sits beside the Maxwell and Studebaker pickup.

Today I started on the two Ford trucks. 

I plan to paint the wheels and red fenders black,
and do some touch up with the steering wheels.

I ran into a problem with removing the tires from the wheels. 
They had turned a little hard over the years and could not be removed. 

I soaked the wheels in hot water,
and they softened enough to be removed easily. 
I'll soak them in the hot water when time comes to install them. 

Here everything is out of the pre scrubb.
I use Dawn and hot water to remove any oils or dirt,
from everything I am going to paint. 

Regards, Dave L.

Looking good Dave.

What do you do with the slots on the top?

Michael, Eddie, what slots ?  :Crazy:

Seriously, if I were more energetic,
I would fill them with strips of styrene (card) and try to match the paint.

I am lucky that most of the banks have their slots hidden in unobtrusive locations.
Only the slots on top of these will be noticeable.

I was hoping to paint these tops, too, but they are riveted to the body shell,
and I would have to mask before painting, so they will stay red.

Regards, Dave L.

Both trucks are done. 

I had to heat the tires to get them on the wheels, as I suspected.

I am starting to think about what to do with my 1912 Ford chassis.

I really like this pickup. 

It would be an easy body to make from styrene.
