    Truck Tires For Replica
    I'm am looking for tires for a replica of my truck I am building. The model is 1/24 scale with 18 inch rims. The real truck is on 17s but with the f150s they look similar so I'm leaving the 18s on. I run mickey thompson baja stz tires. The equivalent size I'm looking for is a 33 inch in a similar tread design. I'm kind of modding the model a bit to be what I want the real one to be. Any pointers are appreciated. I made the mirrors myself & painted the truck using perfect match paint. The bed also started as a flareside bed.

    Need Meng F350 Mirrors
    So I am Currently working on a replica of my 06 F150 using a 1/24 diecast. My 1:1 has tow mirrors and the closest thing i can think of is the meng mirrors because the resin mirrors from BNL are too small looking in my opinion unless they are copies of the meng kit but they dont look it Any help locating them would be great.

    11th Gen F150?
    I am currently in the process of recreating my 1:1 F150 the wrong way. I have the diecast 2005 flareside and am trying to recreate my styleside. The thing is I am not good at creating plastic panels so I'm doing it the wrong way... grey putty. Now I also have the rare and expensive 1/24 Lincoln pickup. Has anyone cast the bed to create the 6.5 foot styleside because the lincoln is a 5.5 foot bed. Because I am using my phone I will have to upload more pictures in the comments...

    Very nice work, cant wait to find one for myself, I love a good snap kit seems like sometimes the snappers have a better subject matter than the glue kits.

    that was my dad's other option but like I said I found the bumpers on ebay. He did make a high capacity oil pan for it too. I almost feel this topic needs moved  now. But thanks for the suggestions guys. I will make sure my dad does some posting related to this eventually. He also is working on a color me gone car and has a few other Mopars lined up if I can get him to become an active member.

    Yeah I wish I coulda done the modelhaus stuff for my dad but my uncle is a little impatient that's why he never continued to build model like my dad. My dad is working on the rear end of the kit to work with the old 68 rear end. Here's some pictures for y'all seeing how he never gets on the forums with his account im always the middle man...

    Actually found the bumpers from the old 68 chevelle kit on ebay for my dad so that's what he is going to use. Thanks though.
