  1. Love the builds that look like the box art. Did you cut the frame? I have this kit still unopened.
  2. I like the Vietnam ribbon front grille. A signature of all your builds.
  3. What a nice job! In real life this was a rare and short lived model. It was called the Unibody truck because it did not have a separate bed as regular pick trucks do. It was just one piece body like a car.
  4. Absolutely beautiful. Where did you cut the frame? I got the same kit and also want to cut it.
  5. Thank you guys. I had a lot of fun building them.
  6. WOW, I started this thread 5 years ago. I ended up using Model Master, Medium Green FS 34102. The can top (cap) has the number 1913 on it. It is not metallic though and is a flat color. I clear coated it 3 times with Testors High Gloss Clear TE 1814 . This is how it looks like. One of my favorite projects.
  7. I always wanted to learn to weather like this. This one is nice.
  8. Yes. You have a good eye. General Patton's command in WW2. Not me though. I served in a Medical Command (USA MEDDAC).
  9. That's what a pick up truck should look like, simple. Wish they would still make trucks like this.
  10. Thanks all. Hey kilrathy10 (Williams) , I remember you. I used to post here all the time a few years ago. I took a long break. You still painting your trucks orange? You did good trucks too. Here's two more.
  11. Thank you guys. Yes, I built a few others. I used to hang around here all the time.
  12. A few years ago I went on a building-trucks spree. I haven't built anymore in about 3 years. Still got a few more not pictured here.
  13. The trailer comes with a back ladder. Just move it to the side.
  14. I did one of these as a Rubber Duck too. I scratched built the front rack and a few other parts. For the wheels, I filled all the holes but two opposing ones with putty and made them as two holes wheels as in the real truck. The decals are in http://www.modeltruckin.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3_33&products_id=146
  15. Nice job. Do you have a photo of the original car?
  16. This is how a pick up should look like, simple. Wish Ford and the other two would still make trucks like this one. Put the gun in a rack in the back window. They were common back then. Nice job.
  17. Alberto; Thanks for posting this. Your conversion of your F-150 turned out great. I liked so much what you did that I got this idea from you. I drive a Red F-150 with those steel wheels. I had a Welly F-150 in 1/27 scale and always wondered if those "steel" wheels even existed in scale. Then I saw your post and bought me the Ford Expedition kit and converted mine to look like my bare bones truck. Thanks for posting all the details, it helped me a lot.
