Hello to all! This is my first "showcase" model I will be posting on this forum. First and foremost, I cant thank everyone enough for all of the information that has taught me. Although this is not my first model, it is the first one I am proud of. So, without further ado, my 1934 Ford Pickup "Engine Hauler". The kit itself allows you to build the model 1 of 3 ways. I didn't like this. So I combined them. Enjoy! :)

I love the engine hauler idea, I may have to use that.  The '34 is a kit to build over and over and I wouldn't limit it to just 3 ways.  They look really good with a chopped top or fender-less.  Nice job on your model. :)

Thanks for the compliments guys! Next challenge to practice on the getting rid of the "Orange Peel" (if that terms apply's to such a small scale) in the paint job. Being a 34' I thought it might be to much trouble to try and sand the fender curvature and such.

This is one of my all time favorite kits... and I agree with Ron.... you just build it again and again.... I have three finished and four still in the box....

 

You did a really nice job here....  thanks for sharing!!!

Future work: So I am thinking of getting (maybe building) and trailer so that I can make it a combo model. Maybe put an older T-Bird on the trailer. Got to take it to the shop to install the new motor.  :P
