Here it is! Possibly the most boring model subject ever! A stone stock, base model, white pickup truck. But there's more to this thing than meets the eye. If you're interested, the WIP is here: http://www.modelcars...showtopic=44306

Wow ! ! ! Amazing, I really like it super job. I like just seeing a stock built pickup for once.
Now it just needs the F150 emblems and the 1:1 will be 1:25...

It may be a stock base pickup,but to me it still looks great! Not many will realize just how much work has went into this model. You made it look like it came out of the box that way! To me,nothing's as cool as a model built after a real vehicle no matter what it is. Great work Hugh! You can be proud of this one!

Thanks to all for the kind words. As I mentioned in the WIP, I could not have done this without the help I found on this forum, so thanks for that as well. The paint is Testors Classic White Lacquer, decanted and airbrushed, no clear, no polish.

I can hear that 300 droning now...

Hugh, this is an excellent piece of workmanship. I am curious- do you happen to have any better pictures of the lap-joint you used to shorten the frame with?

Folks- take a moment and go through the build-up of this model. It's truly spectacular.

I have been waiting to see this one finished and you did not disappoint Hugh! Nice job on the conversion and the details are excellent.

Thanks Charlie and Mike.

do you happen to have any better pictures of the lap-joint you used to shorten the frame with?

Charlie Larkin

Charlie, I don't have any photos, but here is a sketch of the general idea.

I removed the material from the inside of the frame rails on the front section, and from the outside on the rear section.

Very nice work!!!!!!!!!! I know exactly what all you did as I did the same thing when the F-250 kit first came out. I made it into an F-150 short bed though and it remained two wheel drive. For the F-150 side emblems, I took the F-250 emblem, cut it apart between the "-" and the "2", I then cut the "2" off, made a #1 out of tiny strip plastic, covered it with Bare metal foil and glued that assembly to each fender.

Dang Ben! You must have great eyesight and little bitty hands! I can't hardly see the numbers on those emblems, much less cut them apart. Thanks for the compliment. Did you have to cut the frame twice to make a short bed, or did you leave it extended cab?
