That's an awesome looking truck. Love all the detail you've done to it.

Where did you get the little phone antenna on the rear window from?

Really, really nice. All the extra work you put into this thing really paid off. BTW, my compressor needs fixing, could you send a crew over?

Thanks everyone for the nice comments.

Very nice job Mike! I like the extra details! B)

Where did you find the mirrors at?

I did put mirrors on my Dodge service truck because traveling to model shows, I didn't want to worry about them breaking off.
When I'm not displaying it anymore, I may add a set to it.


I made the mirror frames out of soldered brass rod, and the mirrors are from the F-350 kit. I wanted strength too, and the brass fit the bill.

I made the base from a few pieces of Evergreen styrene, and the antenna is a piece of trash bag twist tie wire wrapped around a small drill bit.

I think we could, but the fuel surcharge could get ugly!

Hot rods are all great and such, but it's hard to beat a working man's truck. Outstanding.

Just terrific in every detail. Wonderful interior and even the roof reflectors/lights are perfect.

this is a great build I am working on a F250 Flatbed and I am using a F150 kit and this just gave me so many more ideas.

Awesome truck, it'd be even better with a diesel. Wish they made them in resin.

Against the right background that could pass for a 1:1 truck. Great job!
