1991 Ford Bronco Centurion Nite

Recommended Posts

I'm building a 1991 Bronco Centurion in the Nite trim (if anyone recalls, I previously built a 1992 F150 Nite). I'm starting with a built Monogram Bronco, and one of the Monogram F250 kits. The F250 cab was already cut down to make it into a regular cab, but I didn't do the best job cutting it and figured it would be good for this build. I cut off the front of the Bronco to get it to the correct length, and now just need to change out the rear wheelwells and fill in the roof. I also shortened the chassis, but didn't get a picture of it.

Starting kit:

Rough height with a set of Mud King XT tires from Fireball Modelworks, and the 8-lug wheels from the 78 GMC 4x4 kit.

You'll need to change the rear wheel openings. I did kind of the opposite I used the Bronco front fenders and hood {doghouse} and the rear wheel openings. I added them to the 1992-96 AMT Ford pickup to make a 1980-86 pickup. Good start you have going!!

So doing a bit more work last night, I realized that the two bodies aren't quite the same in height and profile. I realized that I will have to cut horizontally across the bronco body and add a piece in to get the right height, as well as to allow me to match the profile of the F250 body. Also I started cutting apart fenders to get the correct rear wheel arches installed.
