    Little mor work today, cleaning up the chassis rails, plugging predrilled holes and such to get a clean set to work with. Left on the rivets in place.As these trucks had a short wheel base,doing some preplacing of the running gear,tanks and fifth wheel to get a proper stance and look This was the setup that looked the best.

    Jim, thanks for the link on the 337 !! I remember someone had it other then Dencon a while back but couldn't remmber who !!. Here's the link to the Flinstone cab, they are still listed as available. As I say for a resin piece of this quality the price was right.

    Jim, the cab on this one is a resin piece I picked off Ebay, it's actually a Jimmy Flinstone piece and is really nice !! The beauty of it was the price with shipping was less then $20.00 US to Canada !! A real baragin. The scale is bang on , alot of great detail and all the pieces from the Revell 1950 pu kit fit perfectly, ie grill ,galss etc. Wil reqire some modification of the interior tub. I was going to start working on converting the pick up cab into the COE until I found this one. Not a thick resin either, almost completely free of flash. Very distinct body lines as well. The chasiss rails I am not sure what they are from as I bought a junk box of kit parts a bout a year ago off ebay. The game plan is to modify the kit flathead and build into the venerable 337 hp for this one and also for the 50 F8. Running gear will be bits and pieces from the parts box.

    Greg/Jim, thanks for the information, I was really surprised by the article that only 4 mm was added, but that makes it a little easier to work with.The plan for this one is a tandem axle tractor with the second axle being tag. Hopeflly will get some pics posted soon. Currently have another 1950 Ford on the go. That being a 1950 F6 COE single axle tractor. Picked up a nice Flinstone COE cab very inexpensive and that serves my by budget well these days !! Currently working on frame rails and running gear and and will get some pics posted as I get some more progress on it as well.

    Thanks again guys greatly appreciated !!

    Really nice to see an out of the norm rig ! These old Bighorns although few built were really nice rigs from an appearance
    standpoint !! Your build really captures this one nicely. How did you find the Frontier resin casting ?? I have read many different
    comments on their quality. I know Ron Andrews at RMR also does a Bighorn and I do like Ron's quality and pricing !!
