Inner fenders in bed made from old AMT '32 Ford fenders and sheet plastic. Bed woodgrained with Polly Scale paints. Filler piece molded to front of bed to eliminate the large gap.

Didn't want just a plain tailgate so I made some scupturing from sheet plastic and putty. PE Ford emblem added.

F100 standard grille from the MPC flipnose kit used with the promo headlights drilled out. '69 Camaro reflectors and lenses were added
It's ready to roll to NNL EAST.

Wow! I'm not usually a big green fan, but that is the right color for that truck. Love the chop and stance...

This truck looks fantastic! There's a ton of work involved to make it look "just right", and you nailed it. Definitely a new favorite of mine.
