Let's continue:

Sonoma's rear axle back part was horrible. New one was made of acril bead & styrol.

I've casted Ford's rear axle, cut off the excess and added semi axles of profiles + steal spike.

Let's glue it together...

...add epoxy putty...

... and get TopKick rear axle.

It slightly longer, then must, but I will cut it after fit brakes and wheels.

The best info I could find said the wheels were 20".

Let's renew this dusty topic.

I understood why I haven't pick up the Truck for a long time. It was time to make fasteners for axles to springs, and this is a tedious job.

I worked on the front of the frame. It tapers to the bumper

Cut off the excess plastic, made the front crossbar and added styrene on top

The gearbox of the front axle was not quite correct, if you look at the photo from updates abowe. I cut it up and reversed the parts

however the front and rear of the gearbox did not quite match.

Made a spacer

I couldn't resist trying it all on

Now it's ready to attach the wheels and I can make up the cab. But while we're quarantined, I'll get another Pickup.

Hello, Gents!

49_online
Building Silverado, I found rear mirrors, wich I can copy for Iron Hide Topkick. Unfortunatelly they 1/25 (white one). I also have Asto van, which is 1/24, bud they are different (black one).

I also wiĺl copy Astro steering wheel (grey one).

The question is which steering wheel column to copy for TopKick? Asrto's (grey) or Silverado's (white)?

What do you think?

Thank you, Nicholas! I thought the same way!

Now I have copied the steering wheel, wheel column, side mirrors and passenger handle from Silverado kit

The first casting brings me some air bubbles So I will try again. I copied Silverado's tail lights too, with little change.

That's all for now. Thank you for attention!
