Howdy,

 

First time posting here. I usually build airplanes, but occasionally will break up the creative logjam with something automotive.

 

This is the 1/25 AMT model T.  I intended to build the stock closed cab version, but didn't like the way the interior fit inside the body.  So, I built a farm truck using Balsa strips and coffee stir sticks (thanks Starbucks!).  Weathered the wooden bed with diluted inks.   Enjoy!

Very nicely done!  I love the old workman modified trucks. It's so Americana

Very cool truck! I like the wooden seat built around the stock cushion. Great weathering - looks like it had a hard life on the farm!

Nice model.  I'll bet weathering techniques from aircraft help a lot when you're slumming on an auto.

Nicely done! And good to see that you're getting more "bang for your buck" from Starbucks than their average customer!  :lol:

Maybe he just replaced the wood after all those years of rotting ;)

Howdy,

 

Thanks for all the kind comments.  The wood actually looks better in person, the photos seemed to brighten it up a bit.
