  1. Sorry for the blank post earlier. The site seemed to be having technical issues and I couldn't get a post in. Anyway... When we promoted the model car show at the LA Roadster Show this past June, we had a Foose class with the winning build chosen by Chip Foose himself. When we found out this was going to happen, I felt like I should probably build a Foose model since I was asking our builders to build one too, although it would be display only and not eligible for the contest. So I decided to build the popular Ford FD 100 truck since I had heard so many good things about the kit. I stayed fairly true to the original truck, but with a few changes. I went with a Black Cherry House of Kolor mix over a HOK black base coat, so it looks black in low light, but in the light pops a cherry red metallic. I stumbled on some Foose Shelby wheels on Shapeways, designed by Ron Olsen (store name is 3D Model Specialties) that I thought would go great on this build, and add a different look to it. I also replaced the plastic bed with real bass wood strips, stained with black cherry stain and clear coated. I did a few other things too, like modifying the rear shocks, deleting the front metal axle and adding front shocks, and machining some new filler caps for the valve covers and radiator. The valve cover breather and wire looks are Pro Tech, and the pre-wired distributor is an MAD unit, all available at www.scaleproshop.com. Unfortunately, I didn't finish the build in in time for the LA Roadster Show, but I mocked it up so Chip could see it. He told me unsolicited and not knowing it was mine that he liked it, which made my day. Not surprisingly, he selected for the winner a box stock FD 100 built by John Teresi, which, of course, was one gorgeous build.
  2. This coming weekend, June 15th and 16th, we have the LA Roadster Show model car event coming up. If you're in the So Cal area, check out the events here on this site for details. Well, as part of the show, we are having a Foose sanctioned class, where the builds are all based on a Revell Foose kit. Since Friday is likely to be lightly attended, I thought I would build up a Foose FD-100 to add to the table. Although I plan to exclude it from eligibility on Saturday since I am managing the event, this kit still is getting a lot of good reviews, so I am happy to give this one a try. I'm staying mostly stock with it, in the essence of time, but as I got started, there were some things I couldn't resist changing. I'm going to go with a Black Cherry HOK paint, and I found some 3d printed "Foose" Shelby-styled wheels on Shapeways from Ron Olsen. He does some fantastic work, and has some great designs out on Shapeways. Here's the kit you all know. One of the first things I thought to do was go for putting some real wood strips on the bed. So I had to extricate the styrene, and reinforce the bottom. I at first thought I would use some Starbucks stir sticks for the wood, but I opted to get a piece of bass wood from Hobby Lobby. It was smoother to start with, and all I had to do was cut it into strips. Thanks for looking. More to come!

  4. Like many others, I too found this kit to be a joy to put together. Almost everything fit as it should and I would surmise that the parts that didn't fit well were because of my particular stage of modeling skill. This was my first time experimenting with oil pastels to weather and I hand painted the logo, as the decal I wanted to use didn't cooperate (I don't want to talk about it...). Stock out of the box! Thanks for looking!
  5. Well this should be a super fast moving thread... I had this Foose truck laying around, I had pirated the grill for my bronco build, the engine & chassis look like good pieces for a future build and I wanted to try out this .002 metal flake from TCP global... thus the Golden Foose Custom truck is born. Hopefully this little guy will be done by NNL East. Worked out some minor body modifications.. (shaved handles, fuel filter and wipers, filled bumper holes front and roll panned the rear) I attached the body to the bed, and then separated the running boards, they will be white tuck-n-roll like the tonneau cover. The hub caps and tires are the 1/24th scale items from the 58 t-bird... the slightly oversized tires seem to fill the oversized wheel wells nicely. Grille is from the AMT/blueprinter packs, the headlights came from a parts box. Next up was some testors pure gold as a base coat.... followed by a few coats of .002 gold flake from TCP Global in a carrier clear.. Finally some urethane clear to make it really sparkle.
  6. Fender skirts are available now for the Foose Cadillac! These are handmade and fit perfectly to the body, however the kit tires and wheels are too wide to use once these are installed. If you're using the normal tall & skinny whitewalls they will fit fine as [url=https://www.ebay.com/itm/Olson-Brothers-Resin-Fender-Skirts-for-Revell-1-25-Foose-Custom-Cadillac-NEW-/253284647786]shown here[/url].

  10. Just got mine today....I've been waiting to build a new version of this car, I've got a few good builds on the old kit but looking forward to a brand new sealed box. No more missing this piece or broken this and that I get when I buy the old kits on eBay.
