Scale I Build

  1. What would be a good way to convert this kit to 4wd? Saw another thread discussing it and it sounds like the 70 F100 would be a good start, but the wheels would be incorrect and there are no aftermarket options. Is there something that I could piece together from various kits? Thanks!!
  2. Round2 is really digging deep into the Lesney era snap kit tooling inventory.
  3. Hi, Looking for a set of 4 off road tires with spoke wheels and wheel backs. I want what would be equivalent to a 40-44in real tire.Also will need axles with leaf springs too. PM me if you have something I could use for my custom project 1/24 scale. Thanx
  4. Originally a Lindberg kit, now packaged under the AMT label, the 1/20 scale 1992 Toyota 4x4 Pickup should be available soon:
  5. Looks to be a reissue of the Monogram "High Roller" GMC pickup, right down to the (all one direction) Ground Hawg tires. I'm guessing the tan and grey areas will be decals, and you'll need to paint the body an olive color to get the full camo effect. Instructions can be viewed here: http://manuals.hobbico.com/rmx/85-7226.pdf
  6. I didn't see much different between the forthcoming Revell Baja Bronco and the existing Revell Ford Bronco kit, but after looking at enlarged images, there are a few noteworthy changes: Hexagonal wheel arches with integral fender flares New tires (anyone recognize them to be a replica of a real tire?) Newly engraved nameplate above the front side marker lights(?) Instruction sheet is up and downloadable: http://manuals.hobbico.com/rmx/85-4436.pdf Pics of the new Baja Bronco and the existing Ford Bronco, for comparison:
  7. One of my Better looking trucks. Came out real nice. Very good kit. 1 (92) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (94) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (97) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (99) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (100) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (101) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2199 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2200 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  8. Here's the completed build up for Moebius, while I was putting this together I discovered a few small things that needed tweaked. I believe Dave has it all resolved now and it should be ready for production very soon. I have my fingers crossed that they'll be shipping these before the Holidays. In the future I would like to see some more appropriate all terrain tires added to the kit. Regardless, I think ‘70 Ford F-100 4x4 pickup is a welcome addition to the Moebius Truck line up. I can’t wait to see what other modelers will do with it. -Steve
  9. I felt dirty after getting the Ford Bronco kit. I've always been a GM guy. So, I went out and picked this kit up. I made it to look like the truck I would love to own.
  10. The Bench Seat is from the Ranger 80's pickup. I fab'd my own backing for the seat too. You can see the front leafs I already added to make the frame HD with styrene parts. I felt that the original cross member on the f250 frame was the perfect height to set the front axle on to keep the 4x4 height so I just added the cross member from the F150 shortbox on top and used the dremel tool. The F250 Floor box, see the cut out for the on the side of the hump for the 4x4 shifter I made plus the hole to position the 5spd shifter. Clutch was added after this. all Suspension and shafts setup -glued, custom rear shocks, notice the drop down pieces for the rear leafs on the side of the frame to help add the lift. I added Ranger pick up rear axle hubs so I could use the inner wheels for that kit. You can't see it but I added a button on the left corner of the floor just under the steering wheel you can make out a round dark blur, its for the floor switch high beams. The decals of the dash gauges and ac/heat/radio, I created in photoshop from brochure images I fixed up from the internet. If you look close on the right hand side that is an XLT Lariat decal on the dash. Power windows/doors-buttons are painted. I added the spare tire from the shortbox kit which looked like the original stock road tire it came with and the standard f250 rim. Not painted just removed the chrome.I had to make my own spare tire holder -broke the original, this one fits with the hitch in place. Notice I moved the steering on top after realizing where it should be, connected that to the steering box I custom made with a shaft from the Offroad f150. Below you can see the wires I added to make it more realistic, I had to use internet images of engine bays to figure out what should be there. Its not 100% accurate but it works. Decals added like oil and washer fluid. I wasn't sure on the battery wire so I just lined it to the firewall. Yes I added a dipstick for the oil after I had assembled everything which took some patient. You barely see it but there is a steering shaft going to the firewall just under the air box intake hoses. She barely fits on the bigger deluxe display case from AMT. The End. The time it took to make this was long in my book but it was worth it. Thanks- Mark
  11. Hey All, Was wondering if there was a 4x4 conversion for AMT's 1992-1996 Ford F-150 XLT truck kit?? The truck I need to replicate is a factory '94 F-150 XL 4x4 (I have a '93 F-350 4x4 w/3" lift to do as well, but that's another story). It doesn't need to be 100% accurate, as few people will be turning it over to have a look see. It's mostly to get the right ride height, and the look of the bits that hang down that you can see from the side. I looked through the rest of my kits that I thought might provide the donor parts, but couldn't seem to find what I needed. I need more than one set as well, as I will need to build at least 6 trucks -- As the truck stands now (rusted out bits), the mods she will make sooner than later (at least bigger tires and fender flares to cover the rusted out bits), and then her dream truck (w/ at least bigger flares/tires and NO rusted out bits) - all times 2 (one for her, one for me). Is there a resin conversion set out there, or a list of donor kits that would work?? Thanks guys.
  12. Moebius 1969 Ford SWB converted to 4x4 using the AMT '78 Ford kit for all 4wd parts as well as lights, tires, and roll bar. I still have to make or buy front locking hubs.
  13. Hello. Is there any good donors who can be used to convert the 55-57 Chevrolet pick up/suburban to 4x4? Maby anyone know of any aftermarket or kit who can have the suspension parts? I`m not looking for anything crazy tall like monster trucks or such,i`m hoping to get close to factory ride height,or around there. I`ll throw in a referance picture so you can see what i was hoping to get close to. I follow a guy on Youtube called redneck restoration,and there was a really interesting 55-57 Stepside,original 4x4 with manual,this car was fitted with a factory Pontiac 317. This kinda inspired me,or got me set for another project,like i havent got enought Thanks Tommy
  14. Well i am waiting on parts for my 78 ford havent felt the mini trucks and my silverado and escalade are on the back burner. Ill give ya a hint it aint a Ford. But it was scrap pieces from ebay. I did invest in a resin suspension because it was broken, a resin grille and bumpers, a resin cummins, and some resin mud tires. I will be doing the decals for it myself.
  15. So i will be using a revell silverado to make a 4x4. well i wanted IFS not solid front axle so its correct. Well AMT Escalade is 4x4. I took a gamble and got this. This will turn into the silverado topic once im started on it. Need to do some trimming though. Not perfect but works for me
  16. This is my first “real” post here on the forums, minus a very brief intro. I haven’t built a model in about 16 years, although my collection continues to grow. I consider myself a collector at this point in time, with a hard drive and book shelves filled with reference materials/photos for future builds. I pulled a kit from storage that I thought might interest some. Its a Lassen Project Unimog Series 401. It’s based on the 51 Mercedes Benz Unimog. The closed cab wasn’t available until 53. The kit has been in storage for some time now. The shrink wrap was broken long ago, but this is the first time the sprue have been removed from their individual packages. The detail/engraving is above average for plastic kits produced some 14 years ago. I hope the photos show some of the details. I also hope to get some photos of the directions up soon. When I opened a kit, I would place the directions and decals into a separate binder/plastic to protect them from moisture and aging. I have about 2 dozen binders, all broken up by production year (1:1 car’s production year) and make that I need to go through. Seems the Unimog is not in my 1950-1959 binder.
  17. Oh yes i went there after all these american vehicles i'm scratch building an import pickup. I honestly think that stakes work for it too. what do y'all think? Now this is my first scratch build attempt so don't expect perfection. It is in the very early stages of being built, what im doing is tracing the body panels onto thin plastic then cutting em out and tracing those onto thicker plastic then cutting them out, i know there will be some freehand panels that cant be made tracing. It will scale out to be 1/25 maybe a little smaller but should be close enough.
  18. This took a little longer than expected, but it is complete now. ]
  19. Well I finally completed Big Red the 55 chevy cameo turned dually with a diesel and stacks. Big Red is a very useful and fun truck whether you be offroading or camping, hauling a trailer or just driving Big Red will take care of you.
  20. Scratch Built dually fenders just started this project today. Its gonna have stacks and hopefully i can make this engine resemble a 6.2 or 6.5 diesel. Its going to be International Harvester red. The kit's optional window visor will be used. hopefully it will turn out nice. Oh yeah the fenders are made of sheet plastic traced from my brother's stepside fender from his amt 55 stepside to make them. Also expect to see a 50 ford pickup project come up soon it will be IH red also not sure on what kind of plans are in store for it though.
  21. Just got it today as a gift from a friend in the military. Its gonna be IH red and hopefully i can find some agressive tires for it. maybe off the revell jeep rubicon but thatd mean i have to buy the jeep just for the tires. who knows ill figure something out i wanna use the mags that came in the kit on the tires no low rider trucks for me. The bed is painted thats the only work so far.
  22. I was looking around and hadn't seen something like this really so I wanted to create it, Im making a beach patrol/beach fire rescue truck, dodge ram power wagon body with the usa1 monster truck as the frame, i still need the snapfast dodge 2500 to finish it off but it is a work in progress. any ideas to add would be appreciated
  23. Hi Im new to the forum Ive been looking around here for a long time now but this is going to be my first post.. It's a 77 jeep cj7, It's my most recent build. The only thing I done to it to customize it was lift it a little. On this model i had to cut the differential and axles off of the leaf springs and flip them. The color is spray can testors one coat star spangled blue... 100_1756 by moparkid13, on Flickr 100_1755 by moparkid13, on Flickr 100_1757 by moparkid13, on Flickr 100_1774 by moparkid13, on Flickr Let me know what ya think and thinks for looking...
