This is the last thing that I should be doing but have had this idea for a while and while shopping for more gamer bits came across a piece i could not pass up that added to it so I bought it and will start this now.....Not sure if it will stay a 50 chevy, may try a 55 ford pickup but this 50 model gives the general idea i have for the truck, may add a trailer, may not, time will tell..




still working hard on the Aztec Warrior but re inspired by Egyptian treasure gamer piece i found today....

Found these cool pieces for this build that I have to figure out where they will go on the vehicle.

Re: Egyptian Raider Pick up

Thanks Quaralane, no updates on build process yet but did come across more items to add to the trailer of the Egyptian Raider....


And I changed the truck for this build instead of the 50 chevy going with a 56 ford pick up.......

Re: Egyptian Raider Pick up



This is the idea that I have in mind for the trailer for this build. Hence the name Egyptian Raider! Have all the loot in the trailer taken from a tomb!

Re: Egyptian Raider Pick up

Ok I finally decided on a truck for this build. I was undecided for a while for a number of reasons, but have decided that the revell '56 ford will work, I like the shape of the cab and roof line for this project, plus it already has opening doors that will save me a lot of time creating working doors for this build.


The only thing I do not like is the fact that after buying three kits to get a kit that is not warped in the cab or frame area, which in all three kits need a lot of work to straighten the frame and cab area. That sucks but can be overcome.

Re: Egyptian Raider Pick up

This is the degree of the warp.

Re: Egyptian Raider Pick up

Very interesting project. I tend to agree that the Ford seems to be the better way to go for this project. It's unfortunate about the warping in all 3 kits. Hope you can sort that out and I look forward to your progress on this build.

Re: Egyptian Raider Pick up

Thanks Dazed1, the warp tends to go away when i mock it up on the frame, so i think that will go away. I am trying hard to finish my aztec warrior build but am getting anxious to get on this one and keep my eye out for details as shop for other things. I hope to have a firm start on this one very soon.

Re: Egyptian Raider Pick up

my new years res is to finish the aztec warrior, the strippers delight and this one. Decided that there was way to much work on the revell 56 ford due to warpage and the fit of the doors so im going with this truck the amt 53 ford pickup.

Re: Egyptian Raider Pick up

Too bad about the 56 but that AMT kit is a sweet kit and should work out well for you.

Re: Egyptian Raider Pick up

:p
Whoa!
You really "dig" your work.
;D
Another fascinating piece you have lined up here!
I like what you have in mind!
Just don't "dig your hole to deep!"
::)
Seriously, i admire your imagination in your designing of builds,
I to suffer from "over active imagination syndrome!"
;D
I have "way" to many ideas started and stalled because of the over active flow of build designs!
Perhaps once I retire (in about 15 years) I will be able to center and direct the energies towards more of finished product!
HA!
I really enjoy watching your progress, Thank You for sharing with Us here
Later
Russ

Re: Egyptian Raider Pick up

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!!!

Re: Egyptian Raider Pick up

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
