I have the Ford N-series and F-800 that he does. They are really nice!. He's in Romania and shipping can take several months. You have to be patient. He's been really good to deal with, though.

I have stared at this on auction a couple of times and wondered about the quality, great to hear that he does nice work.

I have been stumped about which AMT kit it is using for a conversion though. Albeit, I have done zero research to find out. But nothing comes to mind off the top of my head except using a 53-56 truck frame and stepside bed.

I hope Dan from Romania joins this forum too! He has offered some great products for American truck modelers. Many have crowned the '61-'66 Ford trucks as the most changed trucks ever within in a series in history of Ford Motor Company. Bodies, wheelbases, frames, engines, suspensions were constantly changing, practically every year was different in some way. IMO, the separate cab opens up many more build possibilities than the  old unibody. I've mentioned it before, but, here it goes again, a  2 or 4 WD   F100 or F  250 with  flareside or separate styleside ( '57-'66 styling )   or  a F 350 flatbed, tow truck, stake etc or F 350 pickup. Front fenders need to be enlarged slightly for F 350 builds. But,  unfortunately , we still have a  frame problem Other than the '48-'56 1/2 ton shortbed frame, there has never been a heavy duty straight front axle 3/4 ton longbed or 1 ton frame in the model industry. I hope Dan is listening!
