This will be my third Frontier Resin Big Job build; this time it will be a '57. Cab needed the usual front end adjustments, elongating the front end, reshaping the fenders and squaring out the hood. Under the cab is shortened Mack R frame, the wider tapered out frame fits the front bumper cut outs on the Big Job and using the Dodge L 700 kit for its front and rear axles and suspension.  Super Duty engine, auto trans and spoke wheels are from the Ford C series and dump truck bed from AITM. Yes, 3 donor kits plus the resin does add up in costs, but that is typical in any resin build up.

Good looking interior, nice and basic like a work truck would have 

What color turquoise are you using ?

Thanks for your comments, I'm using Rustoleum OSHA safety green. The shade of green looks like the Dept of Forestry green, so this build will naturally be a Dept of Forestry dump truck.

Little historical note, the Super Duty engines (401, 477, 534) officially introduced on '58 models, however there were '57 prototypes tested in fleets with theses engines, so, my build is technically a F 950 prototype.

Good setup so far and it is progressing very well.  I like the color choice for the wheels and the interior also.

Should have that classic look!

Gotta say I had my doubts about that casting but after cleaning it up,  the grille and front details make all the difference! Your perseverance has really paid off, keep it up!
