This is the only model I built back in 1994 when I was 19 years old. I worked on it off and on for one year. I used an AMT 1/24th S-10 kit, parts from 6 other kits and a lot of scratch built stuff.

Here is a list of some of the scratch built stuff:
Complete Super Nintendo with controllers, cartridge and TV
Seats and dashboard with real leather interior and a relocated string column
Camper shell
Window in tailgate with hand bent simulated neon sign
A static 4 stage Z rack with cylinders
Hydro pumps made from click pens

Here is a list of some of the other mods:
Fully functioning gull wing doors
Removable front clip
Old school rims made from Corvette hub caps (I just couldn’t go buy lowrider rims because Pegasus products weren’t around back then.)
Blown engine
Shaved and relocated tail lights

I did all of the work myself including the hand painted mural of the Joker from the movie Batman.
I have entered this model in 4 contest and since then it has been retired. This model has never been published in any magazine and this the most exposure it has ever had.

I made the camper shell from a sheet of plastic which I measured and cut then I slowly bent the plastic by holding it over a candle and heating the area that I wanted to bend.

I used to do a lot of airbrushing on t-shirts and real cars and trucks. I used some of my Createx t-shirt paint on the camper shell. The only thing airbrushed is the gray fade in the back ground and a slight shading on the face. the rest was hand painted with a brush.
