    Dencon Resin
    About 6 years ago there  was a nice resin 1950 cab and fender assembly  produced  by  the above  company. They haven`t  been  the available for some years  now, but have a question concerning them. Apparently included with cab  and fenders were instructions on how the  builder fabricated  the chassis utilizing the front  clip from the Revell pickup. I was  wondering  if  anyone ever  purchased  the resin casting  and built it and if  they  still have the original instructions for chassis. Here`s the link to the build as it  appeared  in the forum back in 2010

    Reference help - Ford F5 pu to F8 Big Job
    A  few years  ago  I saved an old SA article on conversion of the 1950 Ford  F5 pickup to an  F8 Big  Job tractor.  I have searched  all  my reference  material and cannot locate it.  I was wondering if  anyone would have a  link to this article. Any help would be  appreciated !!
    Thanks

    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.
