In Topic: Ideas for variations/conversions with the new MENG Ford F350 SuperDuty

The real thing.

email me and I can send pics of ones we found.

I'm not sure if Gilbert has any around also.

What we also discovered, or deduced, was the side F350 emblem/plate are different colors for diesel or gas.

It looks like the diesel versions have a red wash, and gas engines have a black wash.

From what Gilbert and I have seen, the single cabs have no ribs on the roof.

The indent/galley/groove is there, but no ribs.

Thanks, Mike(s)

I will try and get one from Modelhaus and we are still trying to find some dually wheels.

I may try and get some Alcoa-style aluminum ones made, still working on that as well.

 

This will be a great addition to the hobby.

I'm glad MENG did it, and I think it will open the doors for a lot of new aftermarket parts for these trucks.

Couple of notes on the kit:

There is no steering box/linkage, at all.

There is a tie rod that allows the front wheels to turn.

 

 

There is no front panhard or whatever it would be called on the front of a truck, that keeps the front end from moving or shifting from side to side.

 

The AMT/MPC Desert Dog tires fit the stock MENG rims perfectly.

The Aoshima HiLift SuperSwampers fit, but they balloon the sidewalls a bit.

 

 

MENG has said they will send out replacement chrome, but check your chrome first, see if it does peel

I would like to follow this, and so would MENG

 
 
 
Gilbert saw some of my bigger Aoshima Mega Rims, and they look amazing!!!!
I know a lot of guys will be doing this set up.

I did some touch up on the photo from the box art on the kit.

This should help with the painting/detailing of the motor.
