    '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?

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

    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

    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"

    In my incident it wasn't upside-down. or even horizontal, although I had turned it upside-down a second before. It came off with a pop, went about 4 inches straight up, then into a nose-dive onto the freshly mown grass. I may be able to get to the drill-press tomorrow afternoon

    The inside of the top piece tapers in at the top. You can't really tell by looking.

    I hope airplane modelers aren't using it because most of their painting is after construction and a four or five foot drop would be catastrophic to them...
    You know? most of the plane builders I've run into are kinda snobs, so...Nevermind!

    just joking

    Yeah I had just gotten back into building and a buddy warned me to keep an eye on it because of this. But did I listen?

    Out back on the grass I had just sprayed a really nice slick second coat of Metallic Purple on my new, wonderful Revell '49 Merc. I was turning it round to check inside the fenders and rocker panels and... Pop!!!

    I think I'm going to use my cousin's drill press and bore an off-center hole through both pieces and insert a small pin. They should still be able to rotate and still be taken apart for cleaning.

    Bob Glidden Probe or T-Bird decals?
    If anyone wants to try and use these, PM me. I bought them YEARS ago and promptly lost track of them. The pic is from ebay cause my camera isn't working at the moment.
