I am on the final leg of finishing the Aztec Warrior so I am getting a renewed interest in this build. I have had a problem getting inspiration for this one and have gone thru 5 different trucks for this build but am settling on the 1950 chevy, i am starting to carve the Egyptian eye in the roof. here is where I am at now and more to come now that the aztec is 95% done.....

jewelry piece fits perfect as a headlight surround piece!!!

Truck is looking good, little late on saying anything but I been doing a buildoff build, and I chose the Revell 56 Ford, and I have to agree, my best advice for anyone wanting to do this truck it run, it was a nightmare LOL. But when you finally get everything half way inline it come out pretty nice

well after going thru about 6-9 trucks decided to go with the 1965 chevy pickup, getting some resin casting on and finally getting a feel for this build.

ok getting back into this one, spent some time opening up the doors, I really did not want to do it but it gives such good access to the interior by doing this so I went for it.





also playing with ideas for the trailer with the 32 on it which I will call the pharaohs rat rod, it wont leave much space for the other goodies taken from the tomb but ill figure that one out later......

Finally getting somewhere on this build and have a small update.

decided to go for cutting out the doors....

this is just an idea, it may stay this way or go another route, this is the part of the build of just playing around with it to gain ideas.......

another idea for the bed, mocking it up and toying with ideas....

mock up of the engine, mummy machine air cleaner and pulleys from the ends of guitar strings.

Small update i gave up on the 65 and went back to the 50 chevy and here a little update, getting work done on cleaning up parts and working on trailer. A few different ideas for the trailer...




making an interior with a hieroglyphic back drop may do that on the 32 as well.

Thanks JD hope to keep everyone up to speed soon and more updates, have a little update,  been playing with the layout of the bed. I have some much stuff to add but want to do it in an appeasing way as to not get to clutter or too goofy!!!
