Roadster Pickup Scout kinda thingy


Recommended Posts

Hi, this is a custom build based on a Scout II that was supposed to be for a club challenge almost ten years ago... Last year I decided to give it a try again. Here’s a list of some of the work done to the model...

The top was chopped of and the windshield chopped a bit. Then it was made into a truck. The body was shaved and the tailgate molded in along with a custom roll pan and taillight. The wheel arches were moved up and re shaped. The hood received a cowl type scoop molded in and was hinges on the front. The stock grille was opened up and a metal mesh was added. The front bumper is a slightly modded rear bumper from a Mystery Machine from polar lights. It rides on a modified dodge sidewinder frame with scratchbuilt parts... the mirrors are aluminum parts from scale repros plus.  The interior is part from the sidewinder truck and almost everything else is either scratchbuilt or kit bashed... Wooden bed insert is real wood. And finally, the paint is Duplicolor Universal Black with Duplicolor 1K clear... Hope you guys like it.

Nice job! It looks much better in black I think. What are those wheels from? They look great on it.👍

Thanks... Those are Pegasus Phat Daddy’s...

Great looking body work and the paint is super smooth looking. I like how you did the bed floor with the boards running crosswise.

Nice Scout. Great workmanship and paint. The wood bed looks terrific. What engine did you put under the hood? Looks like an LS. Nice choice for an updated corn harvester.

Great mods, all very well done and nicely blended into the body work, a great looking boulevard cruiser.

I think I probably would have topped off the windshield frame but other than that... Smooooth an' Deadly.

Hi Roberto!

Great truck, the custom touches improve the basic design a lot. Bravo!

The Sidewinder from which you sourced the frame is a goldmine of parts for kitbashers. I guess the rest of the kit ended up in other creations in your collection?
