    True enough about the A/C... the lady who let me take the pics said her grandfather had it installed right after he bought it, because of the flowers the delivered with it

    Very nice people at Joe Wheeler Electric Co-Op allowed me to climb around and shoot these for a model idea, using the Revell/ Monogram kit.

    took these of a local florist's vehicle, parked intact since the mid-70's I've been told. I would dearly love to find a resin body to convert a Revell 65 pickup!

    It'll be behind this thing if I can ever get motivated enough to finish it:

    Thanks for all the positive comments, guys
    To answer the questions I saw...
    The welding cables are a tiny resin-core solder that I've had so long I don't remember what kind or size it is... or where I got it.
    The C-channel for the frame and the trailer are actually modified H-column beams. I used this just because I had it on hand and for the added depth over ordinary channel. If I have any left on the workbench, I'll update this later with the sizes
    Thanks again for the feedback

    '97 F150 questions... please help :)
    Hi all,
    I'm working on a fleet version of the Revell '97 F150 standard cab pick-up. I was wondering a few things about this 1/1 vehicle.

    1) Did Ford paint the underside of the cab and bed body color or was there some sort of galvanized coating?

    2) where can I find a fleet sales brochure with interior colors and options? Ebay is a LAST resort

    3) Does the glove compartment door drop to horizontal or does it only open to expose a box top?


    Thanks,
    Chuck

    I know it's an old thread but I need some help... Does Ford paint the undersides of the cab and bed?

    Awesome!... plus the zombies won't be able reach up that high

    I have to agree with all the above opinions. I would add that if there is an upcoming model club contest or meeting in your area I'd at least drop bye with them. My uncle and I took his grandson to a local IPMS contest 5 years ago and he wouldn't shut-up about it... He hasn't missed one since
  15. SlotDaddy1963 added a post in a topic Wife told me about this... I looked anyway... Wow!   

    Well, an update of sorts...
    Wifey is a very patient lady but after looking for the cordless phone for 20 minutes she finally found it, right in the middle of our kitchen table/ my workbench... after a few choice phrases she declared, rather forcefully, "I'm ordering you those paint thingies on payday!!!"

    the phrase you're looking for is "Method to his madness"
