cobramike replied to cobramike's topic in WIP: Model Trucks: Pickups, Vans, SUVs, Light CommercialThanks so much for replying and leading me to these posts. There are so many great ideas that I now have a huge pile of info so that I can continue building this PU. Donn Yost gave me some pretty nifty ideas also. Plenty of useful information, now I just need to do it! This forum has been allot of help in all aspects of model building. Thanks to all!
I just picked up a "55 Ford f100 street rod from Monogram. I want to build it like the pickup my dad had back in the late 50's. Fun truck, I learned to drive with it, granted I was only 12! So the help I am looking for is my dad's truck had a Oak floor in the bed with metal strips holding it all together. Does anyone have any suggestions what to use for the wood bed. It is a solid plastic one from the box. Any help or ideas with this I would greatly appreciate.
