The new issue of Scale Model Life has hit the stands. This issue covers pickup trucks kits.
Although I knew this issue would be car modeling as far as the subjects, it just sort of morphed into being an all truck issue on it's own. But don't worry, I have plenty of car models left to build, and some new ones coming out I hope to have time to review in future issues.
In this Volume 5 issue I cover the Moebius 1970's Ford Ranger pickup truck. This is a great kit, and one that can be built so many ways. It's hard not to just buy a case of them and start building. There are two in this issue. The other truck models are an AMT 2003 Ford F150 Extra Cab, the Testors Chevy (Van Halen) Boyd Hauler, the Revell '55 Ford F100 street machine, and the AMT Dodge Deora, as well as AMT's Ford Lightning. Of course, there are some tips and ideas along the way.
With this all new issue #5, and it was for the most part, a fun magazine to write, I was finally able to assemble some kits I've had for years, some that you don't see built to often. I planned on having some cars too, but the truck kits were just screamin' to be built. So if you like trucks - this is definitely the issue for you! I hope you enjoy it.
