Revell/Monogram '81 Bronco Free Wheelin'

Recommended Posts

Man, I'd been printing Freewheeling decal sets one after another for folks for the '78-'79 F-150 and Bronco kits and I couldn't help but feel that I really wanted to do one myself, but couldn't cause 1/25th scale Broncos are unimaginably rare. So, in lieu of a MPC/AMT Bronco - the Revell/Monogram one will have to do and fortunately Ford gave the Freewheeling sticker-palooza one last go with the 1981 Bronco and it was just a vertical color fade instead of a horizontal one but alas, I still like it and it gave me reason to touch the horribly warped to all hell kit I had sitting under a pile of other kits for like a year and a half.

I might just wire the thing up, I haven't a clue yet - just wanna get the body and the interior in order first - that being said though, the removable top had been squished in the parts baggie and even after a bunch of massaging and hot water, it only got close to sitting flush. After a brief moment of dispair, I just superglued the thing to the bed and shrugged, followed by a bunch of deep black paint. The top might be slightly positioned inwards but what the hell, at least the decals sit neatly!
