Beauty !
After 8 years of building experience what would you do different?

Thanks again guys. James, I would certainly do a few things different and the first thing is the simulated wooden bed, looks horrible and nothing like wood. I would also foil the emblems before shooting any paint and expose them at the end instead of using silver paint. I would've worked a bit harder on the panel lines. Also, I would've painted the underside of the bed to also simulate wood. There are also other little details but looking back, I can truly say I have definitely bettered my skills a bit, that's what it's all about!!!

Beautiful model, Marcos.

 

 

But, as long as you are discussing what you might do differently, and talking about the bed . . .  

Your model looks to be a very nice factory stock, but factory stock Ford pickups of that era did not have clear-coated wood beds, either underneath or on the 'top' (bed floor).  The bed wood was treated with a black preservative stain.  You often see 1:1 pickups with beautiful shellacked or urethane-coated furniture-grade finishes, but they are over-restored and incorrect for factory stock.
