      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online. 

1929 Ford Pickup slightly modified

I have been working on this Ford for a while and getting close to completion. I wanted a modern look so I did a slight drop on the suspension and put on some 19" wheels. I had some smaller wheels to start but decided I liked the look of the 19". Other than that the kit is pretty much stock. Here are some pictures of the progress. Let me know what you guys think.

Nice clean build but those wheels and tires throw it off for me.

Truck is looking sharp but I agree with Travis about the wheels. They just don't work to my eye. Just one guys opinion that don't mean much. Carry on with what you like.

I guess I just thought the wheels were different. I can appreciate the comments. Here are a few more pics of the progress.

Very clean build, like the colors, more or less about he tire&wheels combo. But is waht you like that's important.

Ok guys. I know everyone dislikes the wheels but here is the basically finished product. I just need to put a final polish on the body and install rear tail lights and license plate.

I won't mention the wheels....  but I like what you did with the pickup bed.  Very realistic.  Overall a great build.

Thanks Tony. I got the idea from one of the members here and used a brown Sharpie and blended with a Q-tip. I really like the way the bed turned out.

Please give a little more detail on how you did the bed floor,  never seen this sharpie technique before,  looks great.

Something I did not think about is that wood is actually yellow so when starting your base should be yellow. I didn't have that issue because the truck I did was yellow. I started with just filling in the bed with brown Sharpie but did not like the texture because that took away from the plastic bed lines. After trying a few different techniques I found that using the Q-tip worked the best. You have to work really quick because the Sharpie dries fast. I basically did small sections at a time while the Sharpie was wet coloring darker and lighter in each section then blending with the Q-tip. I will try and get some pictures of more detail with the step by step technique. Its hard to explain.

I like it just the way it is. Its different but not in a bad way. It looks sort of like it would be an old-school with modern running gear ride

Normally I don't like those wheels, but you know what, they kind of work on that antique. They look both old-timey and ultramodern at the same time, somehow. "Everything old is new again."

I say Drive On! B)
