This what I have been working on, a 40 Ford pick-up, with a flip front and flat bed. Saw a similar model in Scale Auto Contest cars, and got inspired to build my own version. Not sure what the colour will though.
 
 
Thanks for looking.

Man! I've been following your stuff for a while man. This is amazing. I love the bed! I've been planning on doing a flatbed and never got around to it. This has definitely given me some ideas. Great job!!!

I'm diggin it! Given any thought to making your own flat bed from basswood? I've done it twice and it makes a huge difference.

More progress has been made on the pick-up. Decided that the colour will be base pearl yellow for the body, with that I could paint the chassis, which had a black base and crystal red pearl over the top. I made one of the wheel hubs along with four brake discs, I can now turn the other front hub, and turn the rear ones, but these will have to be a little deeper. Still have to make the coil overs as well as a few more parts on my lathe, but at least I am going in the right direction. The fuel tank was turned on my lathe in four parts. The doors will close with the aid of earth magnets and steel pins. You can see the magnet fixed to the inside of the body, while the pin is fixed to the inside of the door with just the head exposed from the interior door panel.
