  1. LOL! It just hit me that that tight fit in a plane might explain the folding windshield and canvas top a lot of these had instead of a solid roof, which would likely not fit in a plane of the time
  2. Hah, a split frame! We modelers do it all the time when shortening or lengthening a frame, looks much better when we hide it as we do, too, LOL! I actually have a frame that comes apart with a secret slip joint so I can swap out the rear end. Never thought a bolted joint would have been possible! Such neat work and a great detail that adds so much interest, amazing how you came up with that, in addition to your standard attention to detail! You never cease to amaze
  3. Wow, how'd I miss this! Love all the detail going into this build, and the quality of workmanship too! I did one about 20 years ago, curbside, no seats and a fixed hood, then its little brother. full detail though. So glad to see yours progressing along so well, Boldly Go!

  5. Wow, great progress so far! I'm amazed at the precision work on the brass along with the added plastic detail parts, right down to the fasteners, impressive! Thanks for the updates, very inspiring
  6. Nice job! Love the colour, wish I could decide on something for the one I started, just can’t commit to something so I love seeing yours built, well done!
  7. Nailed it! Doesn’t get much better than that, a neat kitbash with great paint, decals, and lighting, it looks so realistic!
  8. Such neat paint and decals, you did a great job despite the fit issues, you’d never know it!
  9. Nice job on the castings and details! You sure made a big improvement over the stock kit and the nasty bits you had to work with! Love the colour too, seems so right for the period
  10. 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
  11. 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?
  12. A good technique I can use on my Mercury conversion hubcaps, thanks! You do realize your 'handle' does kinda suggest some emblem mods...
  13. 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
  14. 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
