1934 FORD PICKUP - "HINTS BY BARRIS"
Posted 29 March 2012 - 09:42 PM
I wanted the model to have a 60's retro "Box Art" feel to it so a minimalistic approach was taken and it is not necessarilly accurate to any particular racing class or period in time. Like the illustration, the top is not chopped, the bed is not shortened and the chassis is simply right out of the box. The blown Pontiac engine is a combination of the block/trans from an AMT '36 Coupe and the heads, intake, front cover, blower assembly, valve covers and headers from AMT's Competition Parts Pack Pontiac engine. For a little extra detail a Parts by Parks pre-wired distributor was used with a scratched coil. The front and rear wheels came from a 60's issue AMT '32 Vicky, the front tires are new AMT pad-printed wide whites and the M&H slicks are from AMT's new Slicks Parts Pack. Several of the '34 Pickups custom accesories were used including the grill, firewall, bucket seats and bed cover. The molded lump of a taillight was also sawed off and replaced with a seperate chrome housing from a Revell '37 Pickup and a custom lense from the Ala Kart. The body & frame are finished in Testors 1-coat Mythical Maroon, the engine in Tamiya Gold with aluminum metallizer & black wash, the suspension in good old shiny black and the windshield & rear window were tinted with a red Sharpie marker.
And lastly a fun parting shot. My newly finished '34 Drag Truck with the '32 Vicky I finished late last year.
