Here's an old project from years ago. 

It was my first transformation of a diecast model.

My friend Jon sent the latest photo
of his dharma he uses to display his vehicles. 

He is working on the yellow building on the right,
it'll be a sign painting business. 

Regards, Dave L.

My 1928 Chevy truck project is progressing. 

The Testor's plastic glue did work to attach the bed sides to the floor
after turning it upside down. 

I guess it was an issue of contact area, after all. 

Painting is the next step.
 
I plan to do the fenders in black and then primer on the cab and bed,
until I decide on a final color. 

Regards, Dave L.

A new vehicle arrived in the shop today. 
This 1927 Graham Brothers truck is a nice model. 

I've removed the True Value promotion,
and it will be put in storage until a project comes to mind. 

My total investment is $13
There are some good bargains on eBay. 

Regards, Dave L.

My friend Jon sent a photo of his diorama, 
and his next proposed project, a 1940 LaSalle. 

He's drawn it to scale and is posing the drawing 
next to previous projects to confirm that the size is correct.  

He is going to build the car from scratch.  

I'll post photos as he sends them.  

Regards, Dave L.

Prices continue to be very reasonable on Ebay right now,
for diecast models. 

This version, which I like because the top is a separate casting,
cost me a total expense of less than twelve dollars. 

There are bargains if you don't need things like,
the original box, key, or pristine condition. 

Regards, Dave L.

Here is a Studebaker truck that has its load removed,
promotions removed, and a simple wheel exchange. 

I've been thinking of making a solid C cab,
for one of these Liberty Classics trucks. 

Still thinking.  :Crazy:

Regards, Dave L.

I found a photo on the net,

that is exactly what I have in mind for this truck.

Tonight I worked on disassembling the Studebaker. 

The bed comes off with one screw,
but the canvas top is more difficult to remove.
 
It is glued to the windscreen top,
and then snaps into the body with three little tabs. 

I ran an Exacto blade along the top at the windscreen,
and gently snapped it off (holding my breath). 

I've been lucky every time I do this.  :shocked:

Regards, Dave L.

The prototype without rear fenders has a very "empty" "open" look.

Wonder how it was to drive it in the rain ?
 

Your model seems to be a good starting point.
