This did not work. 

The acrylic paint was too thick,
and when I brushed off the gobs of paint,
I finally had to wash the paint off the wheel. 

I guess I have to go back to spraying wheels.

As it turns out Liberty Classics uses the same casting,

for the beds of their 1928 Chevy pickup and 1917 Studebaker truck.

This permits easy swapping of loads,
such as these half dozen oil drums,
from one truck to another.

The Studebaker truck is done. 

I used the drum load from the 1928 Chevy, and solved the wheel dilemma,
by simply using a spare set I had on hand, that were factory painted. 

The diecast companies (Ertl and Liberty Classics),
make the interchange of parts pretty simple. 

Thanks for following along on this project. 

Regards, Dave L.

Peter, thanks. 

I wish there was a way to see what,

your weathering skill would do to one of these.

I think weathering would make it a work vehicle, used and low value,
but what you have is a Show Room, high value vehicle,
almost a shame to weather it.

With the weathering materials I use, they are easily washed off,
so if it doesn't look good, just wash it and start again.

I'm sure you could give weathering a try,
you will be amazed at the results.

.......Peter

Why don't you do a weathering project,
here in this thread ? 

Show us how to do it. 
I know I would find it to be very interesting.

Regards, Dave L.

I really like the crate and drum loads,

Liberty Classics uses in their 1928 Chevy pickups. 


I wouldn't mind having a few more to use in other trucks.
