It's the little things like the roof bulge that do it for me. Hell it even has a slight curve just like it's supposed to. Great work as usual.

It's 1970's to the max! Thanks!



Detailed the dash. I believe this is a Silverado now because of the wood grain.


Anybody know where I can get some Suburban emblems made? Or if someone already produces them?

Peppe, yes. I must contact him. Thanks again.



Windows are in. Trim is on. Had to enhance the door handles. They didn't have the button thingy for your thumb thing to open the door. They do now.

I made the supports from brass and the other part from vacuum formed styrene. I was going to form it from brass too but it didn't work out the way I wanted. So I made lemons from the lemonade with the buck I carved for the vacuum forming.

This junk is done! For now. Engine will get more detailing some day. Or not. The hood will never be opened again. Thank you for the nice comments along the way.

It's so cool it's like wearing a flex belt for your abs while exercising on a gazelle with a shake weight in each hand sweatin' to the oldies and a camel back full of hydroxy cut.

Wait a minute... thats makes no sense but the burb is frikin' awesome!

Wow, this thing is a huge boat. It makes navigating through Smiggin's Folly challenging. Big fun!


Barely fits through the entrance!
