I really like this ! I may try this with my '41. I've had it for many years & still can't stick with a decision on how to build it. As a child, we had an old, retired Wonderbread truck converted into a camper. I wish I knew what model/year it was. One thing I do remember is it didn't have a driver's side door. I assume so the driver couldn't step out into traffic ? Great scratching so far. I'm tuned in !

Great work, Blair

Do you have more reference or are you working from the pics you posted only?

Sweet build, my friend! :D

the rear wheel frender [for a lack of a better name ] was made by cutting to 32 ford rear fenders left and right in half  and only using the outer most part that is rounded,
