1/25 Aussie Fords?

Today, 04:01 AM

Are there any resin Aussie fords or even regular kits out there like the falcon? Im thinking ive built my trucks for the year so cars and fords are coming but im thinking foreign muscle this time idk why but the falcon seems good. or a concept cobra? I am pretty much 1/25 scale builder 1/24 is my dads cup of tea i like em a tad smaller than him. I know there is also the 2004 GTO kit which could easilly be converted to represent a holden monaro

Well This will start in a week or so when i get back from vacation. I want to convert all to 4x4 but may need pointers, all will be orange(like a team) but im missing 1. the chevy luv... the kits all seem way to steep...  But here are the kits, also smoothside beds would be nice too, may have to hunt em down. All 1/25 scale hoping all will have thier stock 4cyl engines. The dodge and ford will sport mazda and mitsubishi logos on their windshields even though they are the american versions.

Fixing amt 78/79 F-Series windshield

19 June 2014 - 03:20 AM

i want to do two of the firestones kit but it pretty much stops at the cab. I want to know how people go about correcting the windshield,bed, and or resin options.

 

GRANDPA'S 78 is a regular cab standard wheelbase longbed 2wd.

78 Supercab not 4 door crew. This is how id build the real one if i ever had one. I can deal with the weird bed for this. Any resin cabs or tips to make the cab? I can deal with frame length.

Any tips would be appreciated. these projects will be after i finish my 69 riv, replica of my truck, and my datsun pickup that should be in the mail any day now... too bad i cant start it, friend is house sitting while im on vacation in florida doing my second favorite hobby fishing. 

 


1/25 import pickups?

11 June 2014 - 12:41 PM

Im big on the fords and other american pickups but was wondering what my options are for 25th scale imports like yota datsun/nissan maybe even vw, again 25th scale to play with my american 25th scale trucks, if i wasnt being picky i woulda picked up the lifted hilux toyota kit in 24th, ill even take snaptite just want to change it up.
