Do you think this would sell well in resin?

I've had access to one in a boneyard, and I've created CAD files for it. I notice this truck has virtually NO rivets. Any interest in this topic?wseries.jpg

Never seen one before but it's something I'd probably buy if it was available.

big rig modlers are always looking for more variety. I think if its done well and a decient price you could sell some for sure.

Yes Tom it would do very well! I am currently mastering the next generation of that cab and people are begging for it! That year model has never been done in resin. I would take at least two myself!

I agree! I think it would sell quite well. Looks like I better pick up another couple of Titan kits.

Those are wind deflectors on the corner. They helped prevent mud/snow/splash debris up on the wide windows and were supposed to keep the wind from buffetting the mirrors. The Ford COE's weren't the most aerodynamic.. :rolleyes: In the 70's, the corner deflectors were very common on Canadian COE's of all makes.

The grill is a bit different, but you could build "The Blue Mule" from this i think...?.

I don't know how well it would sell to the general big rig modeling public, but I know I'd be up for a couple. My great uncle had one, and I've always liked them myself.

I'm not positive the cab is the same, but the "Blue Mule" style IS what replaced these. Maybe the cab is the same?

Looking at the 73 Chevelle Tom is making... I'd say this Ol' Ford is going to be an excellent proposition!

The basic cab is the same. The major difference is the grille and the roof. The roof on the 66-73 cab was flat. The roof on the 73-77 cab has indented lines running front to rear. The cab your wanting to produce was used from 1966-1973. The "Blue Mule" WT9000 is a 1974 model. That cab was used from 1973 (late) to 1977. This is the cab I am currently mastering.

Here's how the 66 model looks. You'll see a lot of little differences. The windshield is smaller, the "F O R D" letters are larger, there are two wiper motor access vent panels, covers over the wipers, round turn signals, etc.

More pics of the cab I am mastering here: http://www.public.fotki.com/lotso/ford-wt9000/

Is the grille supposed to be one piece or two?...

Looks good so far...
