Ford F350 SD by Meng

03 July 2014 - 02:38 PM

Just finished up the 1/24 scale 2010 Ford F-350 Super Duty pickup kit, built as a Delaware State Police Truck Enforcement Unit.  They have at least one of these, but their's is an F-250SD with a bed cover, otherwise the same.  I did have a few issues with the build, but nothing major, sort of on par with the other builds so far.  I built this one pretty much box stock, except for adding a police radio/switch set up to the interior and the decals and light bar outside.  I also "de-chromed" the front grill and both bumpers, as the DSP truck runs that way.  I had one major screw up in building it...I messed up on side of the pick up bed and had to re-paint it. I didn't strip it, just sanded and re-shot some more blue on it.  Well when I put the bed on, it was definitely a couple of shades darker than the cab...BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH metallic paint, the more you shoot it, the deeper the color gets.  Its not so bad in the photos, but you can see it in person.  I might buy a second kit and re-do the bed, as the next one will be a cab/chassis with a custom body.  Anyway, here's some photos...
