Fantastic!!! I like it!!! I bought a 1:1 1977 F-250 highboy new. I've always loved this body style.

Nice build. Is it based on the Firestone kit? Also what color did you use? It looks great on that truck.

This has the perfect OEM look even with the big wheels and tires. What impresses me the most is the engine wiring. Even the correct brake lines off of the master cylinder. The wiring along the firewall really adds to the look.

FANTASTIC work , Andy ! WOW !! 

I agree with the sentiment of the others ; this is the finest example of this truck I've seen !  Tamiya's Light Gun Metal works so well , even as an amphiviate for OEM colours ( think : MPC's 1975 Dart Sport ... which is the colour I painted mine ! ).

That engine is splendid !  Is that kit's engine supposed to represent an FE ( 360 / 390 ) or the 385-Series ( 429 / 460 ) ?

Cool build.  Well built and detailed.  The body color works well on this truck.

Great job! Like the others said, the paint is perfect. Love the details and those wheels give it a much more off road look.

I wish my 1:1 was as clean as your replica is under the hood! Dentside's are my favorite Ford trucks and you did a phenomenal job!

I believe it's (supposed) to be a 460.
