Well I finally finished this one.  Unfortunately, it is -20 outside so I had to take pics inside with crappy lighting so sorry about the quality of the pictures.  I started with the Moebius 65 utility bed kit.  The kit items I used was the cab, glass, hood, front bumper, and most of the interior.  I designed and 3d printed almost everything else.  Parts box pieces are the carb, intake, and fan. She is sporting a 292 v8 with a Borg Warner T98 4 speed.  I made this one as a very low mileage original truck as it would be in 1979.  I hope you like it and thanks for checking it out.  Comments welcome!

Thank you Paul, I use an Anycubic Photon printer with regular 405 wavelength resin (Grey).  I wash the parts with 3 baths of 91% - 99% alcohol and cure it for about a min under a UV lamp.  The larger parts sometimes warp or curl when they fully cure and become really brittle but a quick 30 seconds of heat from a space heater or whatever heat source gets them soft enough to get them back to correct shape.. I then sand if necessary and prime and paint as usual.  I use Sketchup for the modeling and design software.  Hope this helps!

Thank you, Bill.  

The resin printer explains a lot of it, I just have a PLA/ABS filament printer.

Fabulous job on this one! It looks like this old workhorse has led a pretty pampered life.👍 From looking at your build thread, that printer can do some amazing stuff! I wish I had the technical savvy to operate one.🤔

I am gonna pile on Bill.  Awesome looking truck.  Underhood looks perfect with just enough detail.

 

You should list this on Bring a Trailer, probably get 40 grand for it.  LOL!

Great job Bill. Everything looks great, the factory color,  Custom Cab interior,  styleside bed, engine,  barden rear bumper, 8 lug wheels, mirrors, chromed grill and white painted front bumper.  Extra thanks for doing a subject that has been completely ignored for soo long. I'll never build a '61-'63 integral unibody again.

Very good job Bill, powder blue is a very good choice for the truck, it gives it a vintage feel!  Very nice details under the hood, it looks real. 👌

Awesome Ford, Bill!  Excellent detailing underhood, and love that color choice.  The stance is spot on too, amazing work. 👍
