Hey guys, I picked up the re-pop of the revell/monogram f350 the other day as a comeback to 1/24 &1/25 while I'm not working on 1/64,and being the OBS ford fanatic that I am I knew I had to have this kit and build it the way I would if I had it parked in the driveway (I have a 92 7.3 f350 in my driveway but it's only srw) so that meant it had to be a 4x4 and diesel...I'm working out the front end parts to make it 4 wheel drive but as far as the engine goes I still have to work on it but I have made a little bit of progress and I'll post the pics in another post,just figured I'd start a thread and show y'all what I've been working on

So far I've estimated the proper ride height,painted and detailed the interior,put down the main shots of color on the body I just need to do a few touch ups,Installed lockouts in the front rims and "custom made" new tires for it (took Goodyear trackers and the non branded version of the same tires from the snowplow kit and some other kits).I had to cut a section out to make them fit the rims and I've installed some lift blocks in the rear so it has the height for the 4wd front axle...I've been pondering if I should build a gooseneck flatbed trailer for it,I just have to find the right size ball to put in the bed...anyways just thought i'd post pics since its been awhile since I've shown any work on the forum..thanks for looking

Hey guys,not much progress but I went to hobby lobby this afternoon to get a bottle of testors black and to see if I could find some material to put on the subwoofers I'm putting in the rear sice there's no seats back there,I got some material that should work as the carpeting but unfortunately walked out with graphite met. Instead of black....I've learned my lesson,read the label before you buy them...so I painted the lower rocker with the graphite met. And I'll just go back tommorrow or sometime and get black to touch up the top section

I had one of those about 15 years ago and wished I still had it. I may end up getting this one again at some point. Build on brutha.

Interesting build so far, love these kits! One question, what did you use to paint the silver on the interior parts?

Ah okay. Might I suggest picking up a couple silver Sharpies from the store? They have a good tip on them for doing small details like that trim, and it provides a more even coverage than a toothpick. B)

Well I finally got some more work done to the ol dually,installed the front axle last night and painted the hood and frame today considering it was a whole 61 degrees today,started working on the trailer for it as well,its not the best by any means but will do the trick

thanks,the trailer is pretty flimsy so I need to either figure out a better Frame or build some bracing but I kind of expected that since it's all scrap sprue

Starting to work on the motor and I'm curious if anyone knows of a kit that has valve covers similar to these,I thought about shaping some from a small block 350 but not sure that I can do it without almost starting from scratch

Well I found a set of valve covers from the Revell 2 in 1 68 charger kit,installed a gooseneck ball,and put in the lights and grill,there's also a sub woofer and resin amp in the back seat threw a cb in the front seat and had to have the 18 speed shifter,still got a long way to go but I'm making slow progress
