I am happier with the tan top,
and I can put it all back together.
 
The truck is back together. 

It arrived without a gear shift lever,
so I'll need to fashion one to finish the project. 

Thanks for following along. 

Regards, Dave L.

I have a new 1916 Studebaker panel van,

and I am trying to decide what to do with it.

I've done a lot of variations on trucks.
 
But the panel van does not offer much possibility,
other than removing the promotions and painting the wheels. 

The body is in two parts, a top, and a bottom. 

I could make it an open bed truck. 
I'll think on it. 

:Crazy: 

Regards, Dave L.

In the meantime I have a 1916 Studebaker chassis, already black,
that could be a basis for a project I've been thinking about for a long time. 

The basic body would be easy to do, but all the "detail" will be difficult. 
I've been on the lookout for a long time for such material. 

I am going to look seriously at wedding cake decorations. 
If anyone else has suggestions I would like to hear them. 

Regards, Dave L.

Thanks for the link, Jose.   

I took a look and there are some possible parts I could use. 

Regards, Dave L.

Until I can gather what I need for all my possible projects,
I continue to enjoy the cars and trucks in my collection,
such as these Studebaker roadsters. 

I thought I only had one roadster with the top up,
but I have two. 

Regards, Dave L.

Ertl's Maxwells are really nice models. 

Since the Texaco promotions are actually correct for this car,
I've kept them on one of my models. 





Another project on the list is this Ertl Ford. 

I am deciding what to put behind the seat. 
A pickup bed or a flat bed are possibilities.





Regards Dave L.

I was able to put before and after versions of promotional banks side by side,

to show the possibilities for making convincing vehicles for large scale layouts.

I'm thinking about a new project,
with one of my Liberty Classics 1928 Chevy pickups. 

I've removed the promotions and the drum load.
