Looking real nice love how it is coming together
I am watching this build more now just bought a
F250 super duty and not happy with it wanted a
4X4 truck thinking of getting some tires and
looking for a axle that will work to do a 4X4
conversion on it

Looks good with the older cab, Rodney, I like!! Is that the old Monogram stepside F150 cab? If so, I got a body that really needs a frame! :(

"O" I see where your going with that. ;) :lol:
That is an Old Monogram Ford Quadzilla kit. Not much left of it but it does have a frame
I wouldn't be usin (no stock suspension or engine)
had to scrounge for a cab back

Gary,
Maybe the monogram Ford Bronco 4x4 suspension would fit right under it?
it would Make it a half-ton but could work.

I still gotta figure what Engine to go in it that would be big enough to haul it.
I really lack 1/24 Ford BigBlocks.
(Thinkin thinkin thinkin)
I smell smoke
Anybody got any Bright ideas where I might find a Ford bigblock and which one would work?
428/429?
Blown?

I'll have to make a bumper to protect the Radiator. ;)

Anybody know what Kind of Engine that comes in the International Paystar 5000 and
any photos so I can make it look half way right?

Thanks for lookin at the slow progress of my thought process ;)

As for the bigblock the F250 kit that is tan and white
on the box with barbed wire decals on it has 1/24th scale
a 7.5 with a auto transmissionin it or there is the Boss
429 Mustang or the 1968 Shelby GT 500 has a 428 for bigblocks
also think when I was at hobby shop saw a bigblock in a
Revelle garage parts deal just motor

Thanks might have to try that or just take a old rear axle
I have and make it work I am on a tight buget so will see
what comes when I get to building it also have a F150
Flareside 4X4 got yesterday that I want to do as a wild off
road truck so when go shopping in bit going to look for tires
was told could use ones from matchbox monster truck but think
they will be to small will look at cheap bigger trucks and
equipment as want wild tread

Do you have any pics of the ramp on the bed I was thinking of
trying to make my F250 a flatbed hauler for my F150 project I
am working on not sure if it will be 4X4 or not .

I really haven't done much for the ramp yet.
Just got the general shape so far.
been dealing with which or what motor I'm gonna use and front axle issue.
Just came up with another engine Idea out of the AMT Ford Louisville hauler
here's some pics tho.

Don't know if I'll build it all flat or two ramps with a open space between.

Thanks now I have a idea what a ramp should look like
if I build a flat bed. Thinking of extending kit frame with
plastic to make it longer as dont have money to get a
semi just for frame. And I think a hauler would look
great in my collection again

Hey Rodney what about an Inline diesel engine? Won't take the space but may be to long. I have a bunch of trucks I do not know the scale but the engine may fit. I got the idea at a thrift store today after a kid tore one apart and I went : I have those trucks duh!: :lol: Also you mentioned Dodge... I know I am in no way helping your thought process decide anything :lol: But your such a great guy in the trades that should I mention I have a Lil Red Express you could have and send me something ;)

This is a great idea bro....,but truthfully I like the peterbuilt cab on it. Either way it goes I know you'll do a heck of a job on it and I cant wait to see the end results. :D

The last update on this build was over two years ago, I think its safe to say that this build might be dead

I'll tell ya what happened

Like a few of my builds, they start out with Great intentions.

Then it gets a little bit over complicated.

Is it Realistic?

is it Plausable?

How to make it look more Realistic.

Woooo, a new kit...

I can do this...

I got a new idea. A new thought..

Wooo

another new kit..

Something shinie....

....

Where was I???

 

It's not dead. it's just waiting for some inspiration
