LOL! Yeah, I guess you'd better keep an eye on me. Too many strong memories connected with the '72 Cheyenne for me with this one. 'My' 1:1 was a 3/4-ton 2WD Custom Deluxe; but, she had all the Cheyenne trim. She looked great and was a hard worker. I had her while I worked in construction. To this day - I still regret selling her. I bought my 1st 'new' vehicle after 'that'... an '86 Chevy 1/2-ton 4x4 Scottsdale (with the Silverado) trim). A really nice truck; but,it didn't fit me the way that '72 did. My one additional thought is that I was this '72 1:18 was a 1:24. I certainly prefer the 'stock appearing' 4x4s instead of the monster-style 4x4s. I guess that's my thing.

Billy Billy. Do I need to keep an eye on you. LOL I saw that truck but just not my thing
LOL! Steve, it sure is my thing. Back in the '80s, I owned a 1:1 '72 C-20 2WD. Of the '4' Chevy trucks I've owned; the '72 was the best-looking and best-working truck of them all.. Should've kept it.
I've got '4' of the DM 1:24 '72 Cheyennes in my collection. If they follow-thru this will be my 1st 1:18 '72. I did get the 1:18 '68 Chevy Baja 4x4 / Steve McQueen truck a year of so back. Gotta' keep truckin'!
She came in on Friday. I've been busy and just got her unpacked on Sunday afternoon.
Overall, she looks good. Details under the hood, in the interior and in the chassis are veery good ... along with the fit of the doors, tailgate and hood. However, the paint and body trim quality could've been better. Am I being too tough? I've got '4' of the DM '72 Cheyennes / 1:24. They are better images. If only DM had done a 4WD '72 1:24 back in the day.
