Trying to make me a flip nose ‘79 Bigfoot and a ‘80-‘86 Bigfoot, which they never made a scale model for, out of a Super Stones F350, ‘89 Bigfoot model and the USA-1 model kit. I was surprised to find that the USA-1 kit actually has the fender flares needed for the ‘79 Bigfoot.

The ‘79 will be using the box stock engine, frame and suspension which is the same from the Original Bigfoot kit. The body from the Super Stones kit and will find some way to flip the nose.

For the ‘80-‘86 Bigfoot I used the frame and suspension from the USA-1 kit, engine block and headers from a Ford stock car kit, transmission from the ‘92 body style Bigfoot. Front clip, hood and grill from the Ford F-150 “Night Rider” kit. 

This is all I have done now. I’m hoping by posting this it will keep me moving on finishing them and not get side tracked on other projects. The last two pics are of a mixed together, kinda pre-Bigfoot, ‘76 Bigfoot and a Meng F350 built to look like an ‘06 F250 I used to own.

If anyone else has some Bigfoot models I would like to see those as well  I’ve been a Bigfoot fan since Noah was a deck hand.

Enjoy the pics and hope to hear some feed back. 6CFA07D0-3A13-4AD7-9FD8-2A8F64976690.thumb.jpeg.4961479aabb3f663764203f6fe0ad079.jpeg07C45BBE-AF76-45A1-B476-C76448AB0F2F.thumb.jpeg.0e7b370ebdad94157412d854a5706d9b.jpeg8B9EEA84-329C-471D-BF1A-853449D110A2.thumb.jpeg.f9eabfad69920241b2fbb82bb776d5c1.jpeg26328C0C-FAA6-47C2-8304-DE4A35A526D4.thumb.jpeg.fe3215bf22f91b6af13880d72da75e6a.jpeg4376AC4B-8019-4325-B705-977DC0EBB4B8.thumb.jpeg.5e90e1cd07d9aed0fe95afb08e6ca903.jpeg4FC0D8AE-D358-48F4-BD7B-D2D1613FBD94.thumb.jpeg.3e29e8d1b539be8f41584e2d0e625bc1.jpeg14817A78-66F9-4EA5-B791-3EE67221E6CB.thumb.jpeg.9601d84f1819214e901705eb04f7121f.jpeg3E7C4A98-E374-4CBB-BEE0-341816C07B25.thumb.jpeg.78b1b6c2bbcc229b0a2bd99218c26d24.jpeg

Great start so far. In 1982 I got to ride in Bigfoot number one. Went to Midwest 4x4 to help a buddy pick up his newly lifted truck and the owner was kind enough to give us a ride.

Cool project. I too have been a huge fan of Bigfoot (Bigfeet?) ever since it came out. I built a couple of the kits when I was a kid box stock. But I have always wanted to do something like you're doing and make a more realistic model. I'll be following along and can't wait to see your progress.

Cool, the only big foot I've seen in the flesh was the one at racerock in orlando with the land train wheels. Will be following your progress
