OK! It's down to two: long bed w/o hood or short bed w/o hood


"long bed w/o hood"


"short bed w/o hood" 

I agree with @redscampi I like the long bed with the length of the cab.

How do you guys old your models together when you’re mocking them up?

I learned to use good old Elmers's glue from this board. Sometimes that tacky stick stuff for hanging posters. Sometimes they will stay together for the picture.

Dunno. Did my own bit of photo-altering to see what more open space behind a really short version would look like, and then a bit less so, like your cropped image. I'm still leaning toward the longest version ....




@Russell CWOW! Now that is a gig that I have yet to master!  Photo-Shop is a very valuable tool, Brother!  At this point moving the front axle forward of the grille was also a consideration:

Cost me a bundle to go through graphic arts school back in the day, always need to keep my hand in it. Sooner than later, I need to start my own permanent retirement career of doing basic inexpensive concept photo alterations like this, along with decal replication/creation, photo etch artwork, and even 3D parts artwork. I'll drive off that bridge when I get to it ....

Yep, farther forward front axle looks great!

In the end, this will be part car and part truck so I'll post it in this thread. I've been amassing parts for this build for a better part of the past year. Now I have just about everything to build a 1/16 '55 Nomad 4x4. I got the rears and suspension from a 1/16 Revell Chevy pickup and the wheels/tires are 1/18 from ACME.
