MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. Nice work so far on that one, it cleaned up so nice! What I meant was the other model, note where the break between cab and box is missing compared to the one you’re working on. If I’m right it represents the one piece body that Ford offered for only a couple of years, with integrated cab and box, I think the box sides were riveted to the cab, innovative but apparently not too popular at the time https://www.cjponyparts.com/resources/unibody-pickup-trucks
  2. Nice looking truck, those whitewalls really brighten it up! Is it just me or does the other model look like the rarer unibody style, the cab and box all one piece?
  3. A good technique I can use on my Mercury conversion hubcaps, thanks! You do realize your 'handle' does kinda suggest some emblem mods...
  4. Great job, Larry! Pretty amazing how far you went starting with a simple toy, leaving no material or technique unexplored to achieve your vision, so very inspiring! We can all learn from that! Thank you Cliff for posting it
  5. A simple save turned into an exponential transformation! Once again skill. creativity and attention to detail make for a museum quality replica, so inspiring yo see what can be done with a simple kit like this (I've started one, long ago), and a glue bomb at that, amazing, thanks for sharing
  6. Yes! Gonna study the pics to see how you did it, as I've been collecting photos to do one just like it, almost every pickup had one back in the day
  7. Looks great! Love your choice of wheels and tires, with nice depth to the wheels over the kit ones, and the ride height suits it too!
  8. Nice memory, from a time when we had some respect for telecom companies, LOL!
  9. Wow, so creative yet so neatly done! Love the photo through the windshield, the glass is clear enough to read the clipboard, and nice attempt at the engine fuel lines too, never thought of doing that before!
  10. Looks nice in that colour! Love the whitewalls too, the finishing touch!
  11. Nice job! Love the colour choice and detailing! I’m working on the same concept right now (base step side, ready for the colour coat) and appreciate the inspiration, paintwork is always the challenge for me, but yours came out great!
  12. Wow, that looks great! Very solidly built with that double skin, too, unlike the full size Winnies, LOL! You do such neat work, precision cutting and assembly too
