Have finally made a start on my F100 Resin body (Munterwerks)

Picked up a cheap kinsmart diecast Chevy wrecker in which the whole back half was in plastic.

So my plan is to mate them together to build a Ford Tow truck / wrecker.

Seems to fit quite well.

That'll look a whole lot better than the Carrera version.

Hey Chet - thanks for the reminder - not much progress on this lately as life keeps getting in the way. I have the kits' windows fitting snugger now after some more careful carving and filing.
I also filled in the wheel arches a little as I thought the openings looked a little too big..

Next job is to make some sides for the tray and get it into primer... & yep it's a lovely shell so PM Mr Munter if you are keen.

Next step is to fit some body mounts and get it running...

Looking good, Pat.

Whatever you do please allow for some weight addition to counter balance the rather high COG.

Good idea - you went steel chassis on yours yeah? Are you suggesting we introduce ute racing?

Yes, the weight of the Penelope Pitlane made a difference.

I am reluctant to suggest anything to our group these days.

Heh. Must place an order for some of your steel wheel inserts please. Have you ever found anything to use as hub caps?
