    Old thread, but here is a photo a Redwood logger. Dig those bias plys. Nothing cooler than an old Pete, maybe an old KW or old................

    Great build, great paint scheme, IMO, much more inspiring and realistic looking than the less than flattering box art.  Curious, what color white did you use?, it appears to be an off white.

    AMT releasing an ERTL product? Hmmm, looks like they maybe buying the rights to all the ERTL truck models and may be planning to re leasing most or all of them just like they seem to be doing with all there own old kits. Yes, it appears truck model hobby must be booming.

    Box art trucks look great, however its what's in the box that counts. This kit should have been corrected to match the box art before the reissues ( front end + fenders  ) . Is that too much to ask?

    I want the look  on the left. Bottom moldings and wheel wells look like a simple sand job, but what is the easiest way to remove the top moldings between lamps?

    sorry, should have been more specific, the belt line moulding, the area between the front ( amber)  and rear  (red ) side lamps.

    An older build that was originally red with spokes, decided to go to the ABF fleet look. Thanks to double take replicas for the very nice  period correct  wheels  and tires.

    Excellent job, great color and attention to details. You did super nice job on the headlight bezel black trim paint, not overdone. IMO, the '70 grill is hard to beat. Are wheels painted Ford Whimbledon white?

    Great combo, Louisville + stake. Super clean job, excellent paint choices.

    Super clean '68  F 100 longbed DeKerry, thanks for posting. Great  detailed shots. Yes, firewalls on '67-'72 pickups are body color, not black.  Also, Ford had an interesting way of contrasting interior colors. If truck is medium or lighter blue, the dash, steering column and door panels are darker blue. Same goes for reds and greens. White trucks came in a different variety of  interior colors.

    Great idea for a build! Those Ford kits take a lot of research to get right. Not only did the grills change, the emblem location and trim moldings varied through the '73-'79 run, not to mention getting  the correct wheelbase set up for F 100 thru F 250s. Just curious, is there an easy way to remove the top mouldings  from the body?

    Here is a '63 Ford with the older style bed ( correct optional bed for '63 ) Again, this would require the MCR cab, the bed is available in resin listed for '57-'60 pickups http://www.ebay.com/itm/1957-to-59-ford-pick-up-6ft-bed-/232334438285?hash=item3618362f8d:g:UsYAAOSw44BYE5dW .
