Just finished this one up.It's a bash with the panel van. It supplied the chassis that's modified, floor pan/bed floor and bed sides. The pickup supplied the engine, cab, interior and inner bed sides. I didn't do a lot of details as I wanted it to be a fairly simple build. It's just a shelf model anyhow. The interior and engine are painted with Tamiya Dull Red. The body is painted with Dupli Color Desert Sand Mica. Foose wheels and Pegasus disc brakes finish it off. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. It's a long way from my original vision of it I had fifteen years ago.

What a smooth and clean rendition of the early 50s Fords, the overall look is well balanced with the front fender overhang in front of the wheel being balanced by the rear portion of the fenders on the bed. The execution of the body mods is perfect in delivering the smoothness of the build. Especially like the altered front grill with the color contrast. The modern wheels and updated engine fit well into the overall look.

Great job Roger! Much more than just a shelf model.

Cheers Misha

Most definitely a beautiful build.  Wish just one of shelf models would come out looking that good.  Really love that paint job, very smooth and a beautiful color.

The bed modifications really modernize the appearance of your build. The grill looks better than the stock Ford grill. Good colors and the stance looks great.

Is that Monogram right? Very beautiful and clean! I've been trying to build it, but it's been put down so far, parts a little low quality. Perfect result.

I really love what you did making the stylized bed out of the panel body. It’s modern looking and fits in nicely with the contemporary look while still in keeping with the F100 styling. Not easy to accomplish both at the same time!

 I also dig the old school 5.0 Mustang fuel injection as I’ve had several of those cars over the years.
