    As you said...'not replica stock accurate but it will work for a race car'  
    Works for me

    Very nicely done! 
    I've got the same parts here, just have to get moving on it ...

    Looks like a great start! 
    Something that may help the realism of the front end would be the revell '68 headlights; amt scaled theirs too small.

    It has to be; I'm sure JC will have it no other way 
    I was under the impression that the batteries were mounted longitudinally in '66 and crossways prior to that but the ol' memory ain't what it used to be...

    Jes' like this one...

    The '69 interior will fit with no major issues. I've got a modelhaus '67 dash but it's the base one, without the extra XR7 gauges. Maybe some kitbashing with the '68 mustang dash will improve it.

    make a great one to backdate to a '50s era custom with proper wheels/tires/caps and a chrysler or caddy mill...

    Fully agreed; well said.
    Maybe that's why so many get built as weathered beaters   The roof height at drip rail isn't the real issue as it matches my 1:1 closely. A measurement taken across the door width at the beltline reveals it to be two inches too wide; this is what messes with the c pillar and window opening visual. In conjunction with the lack of crown, tumblehome and ill-shaped/fitting hood, it makes for kind of an embarrassing release, almost overshadowing the fine design work on the windshield and parts fit. The Cat battery, locomotive jack, peterbilt wipers, dash pad and mystery diff are easily modified in comparison.
    The '65/'66 is a good, logical extension on the foundation of the kit. Hope they find better advice for it's development.
    Therefore, I have good reason in looking forward to building this nicely rendered revell '56, metal axle or no; a kit with mods that I may want to make vs mods I have to make.

    Definitely captures the flavor 
    I agree with a little extra wheel detailing and lift but it's a great clean build.

    I like it; kind of harkens back to the days when the model bodies had a 'presence' and actually looked like the subject matter  
    and vastly expands your choice of wheels, like using the amt f350 metal axle parts under the moeb F100s. Does every kit really need a 27 piece front suspension ?

    Nice to see they're getting down to an appropriate price

    The two pairs I got from him recently were 7.50-16s; combined with his eight-lug stock wheels, they're perfect for a vintage 4x4.

    The important thing is to do your research, whatever style you're building. The 4x4 parts represent only the F100 suspension but with the F250 hubcaps supplied or other appropriate wheels it will make a decent shelf model of an F250. Of course, the suspension could be made more realistic for an F250 with front leaf springs.

    As AMT captured beautifully the shape of the '61-'63 cab and body, I hope it will serve as inspiration in the development of the new kit. They also did a great job on the 73-79 cab, aside from windshield height, with proper roof crown and lower bodyside curve-under (tumblehome, in stylist's parlance). The styling of the 69-72 F100 kit unfortunately did not incorporate those cues, though they are very close on the 1:1 trucks.
