Model King F350 Pickup And Open Road Camper
Posted 10 December 2007 - 03:48 PM
Here it is today.....
The cab and chassis are still loose as I have to finish up the driveline.
I've back-dated a Model King F350 Pickup to a '76 model with an early style grille from my parts box. The cab color is 76 Ford Truck code 4, Ginger Bronze Poly.
I still have to attach the rear gate, door step and fix the roof cover as it's a little too wide now from all the paint and foil work, otherwise the Camper section is done!
Thanks for looking .... for more in progress photos check out my Fotki Album below, the photos start on page 3. Model King Open Road Camper

The original plan was for this model to be Box Art for a second release of the M-K Racer's Wedge and Open Road Camper kit. Dave requested it be on the Ford Pickup chassis.
If I recall, offering both of the kits as a package was discussed but dropped for several reasons including the need to make some major modifications to the Ford Pickup frame to make it fit the Camper. Do to other commitments I had, and the deadline RC2 set for the box art to be ready, Dave had to use some previously used artwork for the box. So this project is strickly for my own enjoyment.
BTW, If someone has a set of the front bumper guards from one of the earlier issue 70's Ford Pickup trucks that they aren't going to use let me know. They would be a nice finishing touch for this one.
