  1. maxwell48098 added a post in a topic 1925 Ford Model T Pickup   

    I've always loved these '25 Model T kits.  I've built quite a few pickups over the year as well. Here are a couple that I still have on my shelf.
    Here's a stock one I built originally in 1970, then rebuilt it after a household move in 1985.

    Here's a fire chief's buggy built back in 1987 and restored in 2010.

    It is not that hard of a conversion to make if you have an old AMT '62 or '63 Chevy pickup cab to start with.  Here's one I did,, but as a '62 GMC pumper.  I made the fender flares out of Tamiya putty.

    Reminds me of the 6X6 Dodge Ram T-Rex from back in the mid '90's.  Neat build.

    You could always get a Lil' Red Express kit which are common and cheap just about anywhere for the standard front suspension.  That's what I did when I rebuilt so old 4x4's a couple of years ago.

  10. maxwell48098 added a post in a topic 1/32 wheels & tires on 1/25   

    Here is a 1977 Dodge mini-pumper that I built around 1980 that used resin castings from the 1/32 scale Aurora 1969 ALF pumper.  They look quite good as 1/25 scale wheels and tires for 1 ton duallies.

  11. maxwell48098 added a post in a topic What was your first truck model?   

    I'm going to date myself here, but my first big truck kit was the phantom AMT tractor and trailer produced in the early '60's.  The model and image shown aren't mine, but this one was a local show last month.  The first regular big rig kit that I built was the 1969 issued IMC kit 118 Dodge L700 tractor.  The funny thing about this is that I didn't build it as a stock tractor, but instead built it as a box van using half of the IMC trailer kit for the box, and Plastruct to lengthen the frame and aluminum tube for the longer prop shaft.  I still have this one after rebuilding it in 1974 to repair damage from a house move.  My absolute oldest truck build was built in 1960 from original AMT kit 125 1925 Ford Model T double kit.  I never glued the turtle deck with spare tire or pickup box onto that kit, so I could swap it out when I played with it.  The picture shown of the car is the 1960 kit, while the roadster pickup is one I built strictly as a pickup around 1970.
