1971 Ford F-250 Ranger XLT 4x4


Recommended Posts

Nice choice in subject matter, the 3/4 ton 4x4.  Toughest thing is to figure out what paint scheme and colors to go with. Like the period looking  wide base 16.5" tires and wheels. Just a reminder, a common mistake on these '70-'72 Moebius kits  is to snap the rear portion of the bed to the frame, it actually needs to be propped up a tiny bit in the rear so the body moldings can line up as a straight arrow from front to rear. Also, overdoing the black wash around the headlights, don't carry too far down, for proper looking headlight buckets. Will be following this build.

I love this build!

Did you foil those hubcaps?

Looks so good already!

 

I airbrushed Molotow mirror chrome on them. Detail painting was done with water based acrylic paint.

A good technique I can use on my Mercury conversion hubcaps, thanks!

You do realize your 'handle' does kinda suggest some emblem mods...

I have some Mercury trucks in the planning stage.
