Some days I really wish that 40 years ago, I'd got myself a gubmint job where I did basically nuthin', and then voted myself a way to continue getting paid for doing absolutely nuthin' when I retired. Sour grapes? Damm right.
Another one of those fine situations where what's legal has nothing whatsoever to do with what's morally right and ethical. Kill it if you're going to eat it, and NEED to eat it. Otherwise, get up close and take a photo.
You can scale from the pix I put up. Measure the headlight diameter in the photos. They're standard 7" sealed beams. On my monitor, the upper one is .481". The lower one is .787". Divide 7" by .481". That will give you about 14.5, making the upper photo about 1/14 scale. Divide 7" by .787". That will give you about 8.89, making the lower photo about 1/9 scale. Now measure the distance from the center of the headlights to the outer edges of the fenders. The upper is .485". multiply by 14, to get approximately 6.79" in full scale. The lower is 1.61". Multiply by 9 to get approximately 14.49" in full scale. That tells you the Big Job fender is roughly 7" wider than the F-100. 7" in 1/25 scale is around 7mm, or about 1/4 inch. I'm sure this is a close as Revell gets most things these days. Of course, if you think carefully about the parallax effect of the slightly different angles the photos are taken from, and you hold your math to tighter tolerances than I just did, you can get more accurate results.
My own procrastination. Though I did a fair bot of necessary work around the place over the weekend, I put off doing my shop paperwork until now. Just like I did with homework when I was a kid. Now I get to stay up half the night getting it finished...just like when I was a kid.
Even though the temps have been in the low 90s, the humidity is right now a season-low of 37%. Almost as nice here as it is out West. Man, I miss Arizona...especially those gorgeous sunsets like Ed posted. We get one like that here maybe once a year...if ever.
While the lion thing has everyone all hot and bothered, how many of you are aware that the Chinese trade in poached black-market body parts of endangered species for their medicine, and that the recent trend is hoarding of tiger and other animal parts as "investments" ? Story here...and this is nothing new... http://www.takepart.com/feature/2015/03/24/china-endangered-species-banking-extinction-poaching-elephants-tigers-rhinos
This is a conversion i've been wanting to do as well. I've collected several reference photos of the 800 cab, and it's pretty obvious the fenders need to be widened outboard of the grille opening, as well as having the wheel openings opened up considerably. The width of the grille appears to be the same, judging from the relationship of the headlights to the hood shut-lines. F-100
