40 Ford Flat Bed "Old Henry"

19 August 2014 - 11:21 AM

Well the "Old 'Henry" 40 Ford Flat bed is finally finished.

It fought me a little, but I managed to get it done. There are many machined parts, inc dash clocks, gear lever, gas tank, pulleys, oil filter, brake discs, air filter and the tops and bottoms of the air bags on the suspension. The bags were machined on the lathe and covered in black heat shrink tubing. Once on, they look exactly like rubber and there's no painting. The front suspension is mostly scratch built and the brake calipers were modified from the parts box. 
The hood and front wings were made as one, and the nose was modified where I took out a wedge section at the front, which sloped the nose down. The front hinges on scratch built hinges. The bed is scratch built with plastic sheet, square section and wood veneer. It hinges up and stays in place with an earth magnet and steel pin. Paint is pearl venom yellow and crystal flip flop red pearl over black. This was then cleared and polished.

Flat bed 40 Ford pick-up

08 June 2014 - 01:50 AM

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.

32 Ford Hot Rod

04 April 2014 - 01:48 PM

Haven't been around for a while, due to recovering from a blood clot and frozen shoulder, but managed to complete my latest project, a Monster inspired 32 Ford hot rod. The body is from the Orange Crate, with the chassis, rear axle, grill shell, firwall and floor pan from the latest 32 Ford kits. The wheels are form the Jo-han Pinto FC. The radiator is scratchbuilt with a MAS etched grill insert. The air cleaners, head lights, brakes, dif cover, steering column, pulleys, fuel pump, gear lever and shocks were turned on my lathe. The paint is black with apple green base pearl, cleared and polished. There are more etched parts used for the engine, interior and suspension.
