and how is that? the truck is two 99 lightning kits put together...
One of 'em came with the wrong grille, I suppose?

The earlier Revel-o-gram kits had this style grille, but as far as I know the only Revell kits with the '99 style grille were the Lightning and Harley Davidson versions. On that '99 style, the bumper was different, the grille 'dipped' down into it a little, and there were different inserts (the Lighting had a mesh setup, while the regular F-150 had the old style 'bar' setup)-
That's what kind of throws me- the bumper on this one looks like the '97/'98 style, and since the second-generation Lighting wasn't introduced until '99, and the Revell kit is a '99, and Sonoma says (and I believe him!) all the parts are from the Lightning kits, I don't see how the '97/'98 grille and bumper got into the mix, unless he modified them.
But at any rate... I'm really liking the buildup, and yeah, I really think Ford should have built a Super Cab Lighting! (Well, the Harley Editon pretty much was a SuperCab or Super Crew version of the Lightning, but still!) Now if only somebody would do a kit of the new SVT Raptor!
