Revell 56 Ford F-100-Now Under Glass-01/02

Recommended Posts

Measure twice. Bend once. Measure again. Re-bend. Test fit. Toss out. Hide all sharp objects. Start again.

Truth Joe, that looks awesome. Perfect scale and clean fitting. I'm jealous.

Joe problems never hold you back for long. I have an AMT Cougar that could use some cursing but i haven't gave it one. :D

Thanks everybody! I worked on the R/H front line this morning and got it all painted and installed a union/ joint to split the front half of the line up in order to make it somewhat easier to handle and form.

Carl: I can curse at that Cougar from here if it'll help any! :D

Ok I've got the fuel line formed and laid in place. Rear tires are now on as well as front rotor bearing caps.

To recap....

This is what the kit boxing has for the chassis

Still gotta install the exhaust system and a few other things on the underside but we're getting closer.

Funny thing about this kit and another reason I want it. These are the only pictures of ANY model I've got from the early years. Here's my Revell "Street Demons" 41 Willys about 30 years ago ....

Don't ask about the display or the quality. Ha ha!!! I guess it was my best shot at early photography with a really crappy camera.

Sorry I haven't been on much to keep up with your build Joe, but It's been a mad house around here the past few weeks. I havent even had much time to get on my own project lol. But I finally got some time this evening browse through your build and get caught up. You have really come along way with it since I last check in. I love your chassis detail work so far buddy. It really came out nice. Looking forward to seeing how your flames turn out this time.

Thanks Carl and Jim!! I hear you on being busy Jim!! I was out of town for half of last week and have only gotten a couple of things done on the truck since Monday. I'll be hitting it hard this weekend though.

Had to get something done on this puppy. After removing the tons of flash that this cab/ front clip had, it was time to primer it. Will be moving on to the doors next.

Joe had to have a look....... i'm down and out right accident for the 4th..... but, more reason to my posting, the 429 BOSS you used.....

ANY pictures of the exhaust manifolds you used, and what models may have them???

reason being is, they're real close to that Mopar used on the "Ball-Stud" Hemi's, the 404 C.I.D, and the 444 C.I.D engines, that were made, but never went into production, due the time frame they were made, BUT there are atleast one out in Detroit, that was built as a "running prototype".....Its in a '67 Plymouth Barracuda, notchback........

I've modeled it to go along side the AMT-Ertl's 426 DOHC Hemi......as a "what-if".....mine however is going in the '67 Dodge Coronet R/T from Revell!!!!!

Well that sucks Joe. But I'm sure you'll get it buddy. I've had many a re-sprays in my bench build life lol, so I know the feeling of disapointment they cause. But if your anything like me, you'll get it if it's the last thing you do lmao.

Thanks Jim. You're right I'll get it. It's a bummer of sorts but like I always say, that's modeling. I've since got it primed and threw a mist coat on earlier. I just now painted the gloss red back on and primed the hood scoop. I have a small speck of dust to sand out of the hood scoop but that aint nuthin'.

Been a little bit since I've been on this one. I tried to paint the body but it turned out terribly. Will be back on it soon. I'm on my 30 year old 37 Chevy resto right now so I can actually finish something.  http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/103667-30-year-old-amt-37-chevy-gasser-rolling-chassis-0714/

Ok folks. I'm back from the dead with this one. I had to just back away from it for a little bit to regroup and come back. I started on the exhaust system yesterday and chose solder as the piping. The mufflers I got from a LHS in San Antonio last month that I like to frequent when I'm up there.

 One of my lighting fixtures when kaput on me so I only have one light for the time being so the picture quality isn't what I like but here it is so far............
