1973 White Road Commander
« on: May 15, 2017, 04:32:12 PM »
I started this one a while back. It jumped in front of my Highbinder project.

Here's my inspiration picture:

The cab is fiberglass and a real pain to work with. The Aerodyne roof is from the snap KW.

The rear axle will be a tag:

Very interesting project you have started here Brian, I thought it was going orange till I scrolled down to the next photo and was stunned by the Mayflower paint and decals, looks great though! The other point of interest.....-well one of- is of course the roof but then the unique tag axle on a single installation finishing off with the 8-track tapes in the consul, just outstanding already!!
