Here is my WIP Meng F350. I cut 3/4" out of the frame, bed, driveshaft, fuel tank, and exhaust. It is just pieced together in these pics....this is a great kit. I highly recommend it. The wheels and tires are Aoshima. Paint is Duplicolor Cherry Red metallic. I will post finished pics in the Under Glass forum when it is done.

Looks really good. I like the short wheel base over the long one.  the short is more representative of what I see on the streets here too.

It is more representative of what you normally see, but I think I'd be a little apprehensive to take a razor saw to a $75 model kit!

Yes, it was a bit frightening, lol. My wife looked up the dimensions of the 1:1 trucks, both long bed, and short. Then we did the scale conversion and the best we could come up with was roughly 3/4" of cutting. It all actually went very smooth except for the frame "rejoining". I didn't reinforce it good enough and after about 12 hours of it sitting on it's tires the frame started to buckle where I cut. I had to put some plastic inside the frame rails to "box" the cut area. After that it was all good. Great kit.

I love it! I plan on doing the same thing to replicate my 2012. Finishing up my first one right now before I realized it was a long bed. I guess the excitement clouded my vision! Got four more and they will all be done this way!

Thanks Lindsay. The are from an Aoshima kit, but not the Hilux. They are from the Toyota 4Runner. They MAY be the same as the Hilux though. :)
